That's my little Peanut ("peenit") snoozing in his self-constructed hammock. His little booty fit just perfect in the arm of my jacket. I wish I could curl up and snooze like that right now.
There was just a whole bunch of hullaballoo about us Americans not getting enough sleep. Remember that? Last week? The side effects include things like increased auto accidents, productivity declines at work, and even more serious things like heart attacks. Turns out, even our sex life suffers. (Mine suffers anyway, but its nice to have something to blame it on!!) Just last week every morning show had a series about getting more sleep, how to improve the quality of sleep, how often to replace your mattress....all this stuff ring a bell?
(SIDENOTE: On the Today Show, a sleep expert claimed that your mattress doubles in weight every ten years because of DUST MITES. Yep, that's why old mattresses seem heavier - they double their weight in BUGS. EW EW EW EW EW!!!)
Then, Sunday morning, we have to "spring forward", meaning we all lose an hour of sleep (or an hour of our weekend!!). Of course we don't feel it until the alarm goes off at precisely dark thirty Monday morning. Today mine went off at what felt like 4:16 AM. Not...cool.
My teenaged daughter was just a dark cloud of anger from the moment I woke her up until I dropped her off at school. Everyone I'm talking to this morning sounds exhausted, I'm exhausted....and we do this WHY?!??!
Arizona bows out of the whole time change fiasco, and more power to them. I don't care if we do one or the other, but lets stick to one from now on.
Random Randomosity: I curled my hair this morning and it looks very "1982". Louie thought it was beautiful and that's what really matters. Meanwhile the guys have called me "Farrah" all morning. I guess there's worse things....
On a medical note:
My Louie has been diagnosed with an inflammatory nerve condition. Its uncomfortable, his arms go numb, he drops things...but its not life threatening. At any rate, his doc prescribed a prescription anti-inflammatory. I asked her when she prescribed it if it would interfere with his antidepressant. We were assured that it would be fine.
When I went to fill said prescription, the hunky pharmacy intern informed me that the combination could kill him, cause seizures or stroke, or all of the above. He printed out all the cases where people have died after taking the combination.
Needless to say, I fired the doctor this morning. It would have taken her three minutes to go find her PDR and look that up to be sure.
Have a great (YAWN!!!) Monday !!
