Tired and Wired

I didn't sleep a wink last night. Everytime I was on the brink of
falling asleep I would be violently jerked awake by the feeling that
my heart was stopping and I couldn't breathe. It went on all night.

I know it sounds crazy. I thought so myself the first time it
happened, one night last week. I thought I must have been drinking
caffeine too late in the day.

Today I tried to find a pattern from these two nights. I was talking
to Michy today and she solved it - new allergy pills! I have taken 4
pills over the past 3 weeks, and the other 2 times it was in the
morning. I had been having a few anxiety attacks but I just related it
to back to school stress and stuff.

20 hours later and my heart is still racing, although not as fast as
before. I feel like Jason Statham in Crank. Can't sit still or my
heart will burst. Physically, I am sooo tired but I feel so restless I
want to run but I'd probably have a heart attack or pass out.

(Side note -- Crank 2: High Voltage is scheduled to be released April

Oh the new allergy pill is called Aerius. The medical ingredient is
desloratadine, and you can bet your socks I will not touch the stuff
again! Although now that I'm coming down a bit, it's kinda groovy zone
to be in while placing race car games on the wii while listening to
the fast beats of Infected Mudhroom. ** kids, don't try this at home**

Easy Listening makes me want to puke

I have no idea what radio station the girls have playing in our area, but I swear, every day I hear the same songs.

Off the top of my head, I recall hearing daily -

"These Dreams" by Heart.... "In a wood full of princes, freedom is a kiss. But the prince hides his face from dreams in the mist." Sure, I loved theis power ballad at one point in time, but that was back in 1985!!

"Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles. Yay Canadian content! Another great song back in the day (1989), but really! to hear it everysingle day in 2008 is not acceptible!

oh! Now they're playing a good song - "Drops of Jupiter" by Train. Whatever happened to Train?

Scott picks out the best presents

I was a little sad one day because my brother was leaving again and stuff. 

Scott asked what he could do to cheer me up. 

Nothing, I said.

He asked, how about I get you a present?  Who can't be cheered up with a present?

OK!!  I exclaimed, instantly feeling better at the suggestion of a surprise, but not really expecting to get one.

Gimme a few days and I'll come up with something good, he said.

OMG!  Did he ever come up with something good.  A new phone with a fantastic pink case. *dreamy sigh*  one more pink gadget for my collection!

Unsuccessful Day - The best bloopers are a click away

Zombie fighting ninja

I can't sleep.  I had a horrifying dream and it's keeping me awake.  It was the most disturbing dram I had in a long time.

It was black out and I was walking to my car when I saw people smash my window.  They saw me fleeing and chased me, unloading a full clip in my direction as I tried to run into the house.  There were people I knew inside (although IRL, I have no idea who these people are) who went outside to chase the bad guys.  I heard more gunshots and one of the bad guys got into the house.  I was hiding in the kitchen with knives in my hands.  I stabbing him as he was coming around the corer.  He didn't bleed.  It didn't show him down.  I kept cutting into him as he handcuffed my left hand to a chair.  I stabbed him over and over, dragging the knife through his flesh, but he still was not bleeding.

I told Scott about my scary dream.  He said it wasn't scary, it was an awesome dream - that I was a ninja fighting off zombies.  Now I can't stop thinking about his Dead Rising video game where you're a photojournalist who is fighting off zombies in the mall, clubbing them, hacking away and cutting them up with a chainsaw and lawn mower. Ah, no wonder he thought my dream was so freaking awesome.

No Office Visit for Me!

first day of grade 4 Taking Miranda to school went smoothly.  This year was the first problem-free (and stress-free) first day of school.  I don't know if it's a bad thing that it took 5 years to get it that way, or if I'm lucky that it only took 5 years!

Back To School

Today is the first day back to school for Miranda.  Here's hoping for a (relatively) stress-free morning!  I called the school last week to confirm that Miranda would be in a nut-friendly classroom, and she is.  Hopefully everything will go smoothly and I won't have to be one of the problem parents in the office. hehe
