Dear Internets,

Thank you for your concern and suggestions re: my last post about how dog-ass tired I've been of late.

Some notes--
  • I only take Ambien in dire situations, like when I really, really need to get some sleep and I'm worried that my overactive, overstressed mind won't be able to turn off to allow me to get said sleep. And when I DO take Ambien, I'm a good girl and follow the directions allowing for "at least 8 hours" of sleep. At any rate, the Ambien should've been well worn off when I had my mid-afternoon sinking spell. Hell, it wasn't a sinking spell, it was more like the Titanic. I went DOWN.
  • Going to bed at 9:00pm every night sounds like a good idea, but since the baby doesn't go to sleep until about 8:00 - 8:15, that would leave me only 45 minutes to an hour that's TOTALLY to myself. And in that time, I would need to finish laundry, eat, shower, pay bills, talk on the phone to my out-of-state man, etc. So, sorry. Just not an option except every now and again.
  • Even though it would be a good guess otherwise, no, I'm not pregnant. I had my baby-making parts removed almost a year ago.
  • Hmmm...thyroid. That's not a bad guess. I had my thyroid tested about 8 or 9 years ago, but it was fine. I'm headed back to the doctor on 5/15, so I'm going to request that they test that sucker.
  • And La Turista? You were right about the 3-day benders in college. I should've said, grad school, because I did pull consecutive all-nighters then, but it was to write brilliant papers deconstructing poetry and crap like that.

Sleepily yours,

Karla "Estelle Getty" May

Nothing wrong with a nap, but I can't imagine the backseat of the Murano was very comfortable.

Take comfort, going to bed early is like sleeping late in reverse.

It could be your blood sugar.

Whatever it is I hope your energy returns soon and your feeling like yourself again.

Naps are the shit. That's my next advice. And I totally get it about not wanting to go to sleep thirty minutes after the babies-- then you catch a second wind-- then all of a sudden it's 1:30! Ackkkk!

my word ver. is ehrzyl which is PERFECT b/c BBE and I were just admiring the Earl...
