Ads, hope you are feeling better soon xx
It's my own fault. I have yet to learn to stop trying to live up to the expectations of other people. I just should have said "No" to going down to the party and gone back to sleep. Instead I go down and have to sit there being polite and pretending I am having a good time. The only reason I said "Yes" was because the woman at my door is a friend and I didn't want to disappoint her. Then to get there and see the food was exactly what I couldn't eat just added to it all. I was honestly looking forward to KFC.

When will this ever end. Do they have any small children?

Oh dear. All the best to them, and a safe return.

Sometimes there are small blessings where we don't see them. I can't imagine leaving a newborn to go off to war.

Another one of those all nighters. So I spent it watching flash mobs doing Christmas Carols all over the world. I can't seem to break this sleep cycle. Now I will get tired around ten this morning. Then sleep until four this afternoon. Unless someone knocks on the door and wakes me up. Then I will stay tired until I go back to sleep. I have been very hesitant about asking for a sleeping aid. But I think I am going to have to. The last time I had one was more than 40 years ago. Part of the problem is the Vicodin. It makes me wide awake and full of energy. At the end of the day is when I need it the most. Crazy pills. Why can't they make me sleepy?

Addie, can you buy melatonin OTC there? It works really well on all our kids who have sleep issues due to their meds, and its as natural as it gets.

I'm sitting here debating whether or not to exercise before I shower. Its cold and crappy out there and I really don't want to do much of anything today. I have to go out and shop though. We are out of a lot of stuff. Got a mug of coffee to finish first though...wonder how long I can make it last?
