NyQuil - it's not just for nighttime anymore...

I took a dose of Walgreen's version of NyQuil about 6:00 pm last night and another a few minutes ago...so this post will probably be short, because I can see drowsiness approaching.

I have had a sinus headache/earache on and off all week, but by Thursday it was turned ON full blast with out an OFF switch.

I had too much work to do to take any meds that would make me drowsy.

NyQuil usually knocks me out for close to 12 hours and I have not had 12 consecutive hours to waste away sleeping this week.

But last evening, I succumbed....

Boy did I sleep good...

Till about 3:00 am when I awoke to the F-word coming from the basement...LDBoy's work must not be going so good...

Or maybe it was my snoring that woke me and I just happened to hear the F-word and blamed that...

I'll never know...

Last Sunday, LDBoy moved in for a couple of weeks...

Or until he can gather up what he needs to make the move to Belize...

No, I am not jinxing his work just to keep him stateside longer...

Not that I wouldn't, I just am not sure how to do that...

With my luck I would actually probably fix a coding problem instead of botching it...

And then he would be gone sooner...

And my house would never get cleaned...

Have I mentioned that he has been cleaning out my clutter?

One room at a time....

Unfortunately, we have different ideas of clutter...

Him: Have you used it in the last week? In the last month? In the last year?

Me: But, I may need it someday...

So each evening after work I have been frantically trying to realize what he has tossed that I may need someday...

Me: Where's that thing a ma jig that was sitting right here...

Him: It's gone....

Me: But, I use it all the time....

Him: You do? Cuz it was cracked and the batteries were so dead they were leaking inside it...

Me: But...

him: It's gone, Mom.

Me: Without even a goodbye?

Him: It's gone.

Good night!

Hey! Welcome back.

Just don't mix the NyQuil with liquor. You might be out all weekend. Not that I know anything that. >:)

Thanks for the comment, Scott. I appreciate it.

I think there is enough liquor of sorts in the Nyquil; tho all weekend does not seem so bad right now - my sinuses are a mess:(

Nyquil probably ought to be illegal. But I'm glad it's not. I save it for when I really need to sleep well. Like after a hard day of thinking about de-cluttering. I'm a collector, so that's not an easy chore for me, either. ;)
