The latest bug to go around these days seems to have hit my sinus cavities. It’s temporarily taken residence in my nose and around my eyes. In fact, Sunday when I awoke, therewere giant puff balls under my eyeballs. I ran out of sinus meds yesterday and figured I’d stop by the store on the way to meet my friends at a local restaurant last night. I bought some and took my first dose at the restaurant.
As I sat there talking with my friends, I started getting so drowsy. I kept thinking that maybe I had underestimated this bug and it was taking a bigger toll on me than I had previously thought. I decided it was time to head home and hit the hay. Nothing cures a bug better than rest right?
I drove home slowly. My arms felt like a million pounds and I was starting to sniffle and tickle again. I formulated a plan to take some more meds when I got home and go immediately to bed. I took my 2nd dose and started to put the box in the cupboard but something caught my eye. It said ‘compared to Tylenol Sinus Night timerelief’ (cuz you know I’m too cheap buy name brand right?). Night time medicine? What? No wonder I had been so tired. And now I had just taken a 2nd dose of sleepytime. Great.
I’m happy to say that I’m not dead. I really had no concern of dying from taking 2 doses but it did make me crazy groggy. It didn’t help that Gerrit woke up 4 times last night and Emma 1 time. Really kids? Do you secretly plot against your mother? Maybe tonight… blessed sleep. Until then, I’ll be in zombie mode.
