It's like a sugar rush without the sugar

I'm taking this new medication to alleviate stress. I knew that I was stressed to the max, what with the Boy being all manic and everything. Usually my response to extreme stress is to freak out, get really agitated, and then sleep the sleep of the dead. But this new medication, which is basically valium, has smoothed over the rough edges and all of a sudden I've got this burst of energy that is allowing me to GET. THINGS. DONE. After the weekend's marathon of laundry, I figured I'd be wiped, but nope, I'm still going strong.

Already today I've:
  • Taken the Boy to his Pdoc appt (more new meds!)
  • Returned overdue books to library, paid fine, took out movies, and some new books.
  • Hit Walgreens to get Boy's new prescription filled.
  • Went to Farmer's Market where I got corn (oh I cannot wait), heirloom tomatos, peaches, apples, and yellow squash
  • Then on to Post Office to mail ebay item to buyer
  • A quick stop at Dunkin Donuts for a gigantic iced coffee, NO SUGAR!
  • Home to drop off veggies
  • Took Boy to friend's house to pick up his bike and play video games
  • Took Girl to mall to check out acne remedies at Sephora since every thing we've tried in drug store hasn't worked. Didn't buy anything. Will make appt with dermotologist and have insurance cover cost of acne medicine because this stuff is pricey!
  • Stopped at Staples to make copies of documents I need in order to mail forms. Looked at binders and other things. We have almost everything needed for school.
  • Hit Marshalls on the way home and put a whole bunch of needed winter things on lay-away. AND bought myself a sweater marked down to $5 and two shirts marked down to $7 each. The Girl tried on every shoe in her size and several other sizes. I found a pair of coach sneakers for $35 but I didn't need them so didn't get them. But if you have little kids, they have the CUTEST freaking kids shoes right now. Little tiny Tims, Little Converse All Stars, and all sorts of other little adorable shoes.
We got back home a few minutes ago and I'm exhausted. This is the most I've done in one day in a couple of years. I'm tired but I'm feeling good. It feels great to be able to DO stuff that I need to do without having to make huge plans to get them done. I haven't felt like this in a long time. I just hope it continues.

And that's about it!

Has your daughter ever tried cleaning her face twice a day with witch hazel? it cleared up mine when even cream from the doctor hadn't.
