Dude, where did the day go?

I should have listened to Jack Nicholson. Remember, he told us all that Ambien was some crazy shit. He warned us. He sure did.

Evidentally Heath and I didn't really take Jack's medical expertise at face value. Heath... well we know what happened to him, and Ambien was one of the medications found in his bedroom. We also know that Heath was a horrible insomniac. Yeah, me too. And when I'm sick and coughing, it's even worse. I can't lay down, I can't get comfortable, everything hurts. I shift from one side of the bed to the other. I get so frustrated. It's beyond annoying. Maybe Heath felt the same way. Reports said he had pneumonia. He could have been up coughing his brains out, too.

Around 5 this morning I gave up and took a half of an Ambien. Took about 20 minutes and knocked me out cold. All freaking day. Now I'm in a bit of a fog, trying to follow the fast conversations going on around me between a bevy of teenagers I've just fed a vat of chicken soup. I like when my kids have friends over so they leave me alone. Which they did. I slept.

Now tonight I'll have to do it again. Which is why I hate taking meds for sleep. One night is never enough.

Unfortunately, there is a downside to sleeping all day. The Boy didn't take his meds. He "forgot", and because I was dead to the world, I couldn't supervise him. He's a bit annoying right now.

The Girl and her friend made cookies. She's still not eating more than a spoonful or two of stuff. My guess is that she'll be all better by tomorrow. I hope so, because she's a shadow of her former self right now. I hate it when she's sick. But I even hate it worse when the Boy is sick because he becomes a demanding, whiny, complaining bundle of needs. He is a guy, after all.

Gracious. I only slept in till 11 this morning (Troy and Annalie were off running errands), and I felt like my day was gone. I hope you get more sleep tonight and that everyone in your house is feeling better soon!
