The Good and the Bad

Bad: On Saturday I had a fever.

Good: I went to bed at 8:30 that night and slept through until 10:30 Sunday morning.

Good: Did you catch that? I got 14 hours of sleep in one night!

Good: My fever was gone when I woke up Sunday morning and I continued to improve throughout the day.

Good: I went to bed at 11:00 Sunday night.

Bad: Still awake at midnight, I searched for some Unisom, only to discover that someone (OK, it was me) had taken the last one and hadn't bought any more

Bad: I didn't actually fall asleep until 4:15 Monday morning.

Bad: Duet woke up at 6:15 this morning.

Bad: Did you catch that? I got 2 hours of sleep in one night!

Good: In the past two nights, I got 16 hours of sleep which averages to 8 hours of sleep per night (this is my desperate attempt to think positively and maintain an optimistic attitude).

Bad: Duet took a 30 minute nap this afternoon.

Bad: I reached my breaking point shortly thereafter.

Good: Bert saved the day by responding to my plea for help and immediately returned home where he took over parenting duties for the rest of the day. THANKS.

Good: I purchased more Unisom.

Good: I just swallowed my Unisom.

Good: I'm off to bed.

Good Night.

Core Program completed? Good grief! Are you kidding me? You may also notice that I ate one cookie and had a piece of apple pie. I needed something good to get me through this very bad day. Thank goodness for sugar and Unisom.

I think I would die without unisom and Tylenol pm. Especially when pregnant. I'm glad Bert came home.
Hopefully you will have a better few nights. I wish those kids could just come over here!
