Countdown: Day3

Currently Reading: Finished Prime Time! I enjoyed it, but I'd probably enjoy it more if I hadn't been mildly drugged-up. Scroll down for details. Next on my list is AJ's Unbreakable.


I learned something yesterday.

I'm still highly sensitive to Benadryl, the solid pink tabs.

I accidentally got too close to the dust on top of the piano and my eyes began to be watery and itchy.

I was out of the pink and white capsules, and hadn't been able to find any more at the store, so I'd bought the pink tabs, not in the box, but in the bottle. I took one, thinking not of "Oh wait...these make you incredibly sleepy..." but more along the lines of "These will help my eyes."

Guess who ended up taking a 90-minute nap, moving like a zombie stuck in slow-mo while the world moved at a fast-forward pace?

At least one turkey is defrosted and the other one is undergoing the same treatment as I type this. And my living room looks good, if you don't look behind the furniture! Nope, never got around to the detailed vacuuming.

Today's To-Do List:
-Take K to get his contact lenses
-While we're out, go to the furniture store and price a new couch.
-Treat my boys to lunch
-Same treatment (sans Benadryl, lol!) to office/S's bedroom/W's toyroom
-Read Unbreakable
-Dinner at the nursing home; Family Thanksgiving meal.
-Go buy rest of ingredients for Thursday.

Anyone else super-sensitive to pseudephrine? Or other meds? At least I now know how to 'cure' my insomnia...Since this hasn't happened in over 14 years, you can see how I'd forgotten about it!

Unbreakable is great. I loved it. Knock Three Times is equally good.

Know all about the drugs. I've been sick FOREVER. Dreading the cooking to come but have to put on the big girl panties and get it done despite how crappy I feel.

Molly dear,I got tired just reading your to-do list. Maybe you really need some rest. I am playing with my grandchildren and leaving the cooking to my son and DIL. Have a great Thanksgiving.

I have the same reaction if I take the pink pills, too. My eyes have been watering so bad for the last week that I really need one, but know it will put me right to sleep.
