Wow. I just deleted a post that I wrote last night, and which provided a fairly decent illustration of why one should not post things to the internet when one is under the influence of sleep aids. It wasn’t incriminating or anything, but it was fairly unpleasant, and somewhat hostile. It was about the election, of course, which thankfully is now over, so to quote Dave Barry from many years ago, you can turn your televisions back on. I, however, will not turn my television on, but will drink coffee and attempt to work.
Update about 20 minutes later: I will now feel sick as a dog because I have really, really not been enjoying my coffee lately. Ugh. Plus my Chocolate Brownie Zbar tasted really strange, as if it were spiked with liqueur, which would be problematic for any number of reasons, not the least of which being that it made me feel sicker. Bleeeechhhh.
You know, not that this (to my knowledge) has anything to do with my feeling sick, but my sleep medications are really messing me up, and it’s ticking me off. If I take only pill #1, I fall asleep early but keep waking up. If I also take pill #2, I don’t keep waking up, and in fact don’t wake up when I’m actually supposed to, and frequently end up going back to sleep when I’m supposed to be awake. I’m already on a dosage so small I practically have to pick it up with tweezers. Feh. But if I don’t take it, I keep waking up, and how does that help anyone? Though I suppose it’s better than when I wasn’t taking pill #1 either, because then I couldn’t fall asleep at all. But if the point is supposed to be to help me get enough sleep so I can function like a normal human being, well, it isn’t working, you know? Feh. I said that already.
Hey, way more than 20 minutes has now passed. I was working, and emailing people for updates on their storm damage, and scheduling parent-teacher conferences. Also working.
