The problem with getting ready for bed...


The problem with getting ready for bed is that it kind of wakes you up. And then you lay in bed thinking:

I was so sleepy watching Family Guy not twenty minutes ago and yet, now here I lay staring at the ceiling and humming the words to Happy Tapping With Elmo.
Sigh.

Sleep has been a crazy struggle for me since Mr. Max arrived. It's all worth it since I love him more than my sonic toothbrush. And I really love clean teeth.
I am always tired. Always. I am pretty sure that I'm so tired is the National Anthem of Momhood.

Last night I was applying my many time fighting-superhero-anti wrinkle creams and lotions, (curse you non safe for nursing Botox and your smoothness!) finishing up getting ready to pass out (or sing Sesame Streets Greatest Hits, either one) and just longing for my squishy pillow.

The last step of my evening ablutions applying psycho amounts of hand cream and chapstick and of course taking my belved Zoloft. So I popped my pill and...

Wait. Oh, crap. That wasn't my medicine. It was the PUPPY BEAR's medicine!

I took. The dog's. Medicine.

Ah, well. It's only Prozac. Yes, the dog is also on anti anxiety meds. You can take the Puppy Bear out of L.A. but you can't take the L.A. out of the Puppy Bear.

This weekend I'm gonna stick some shades on him and take him shopping in a high end doggie stroller.
What are your weekend plans?

Have a good one...and stay out of the dog's meds for the love of Ray J.

I am sorry to say I am leaving your blog....maybe.....well really.... you see I just can't read it anymore without fear of urinary incontinence. I am old and the laughter is just too much for my combination weakened bladder and obesity ridden body. Please stop...no really. ;)

LOL! Omg. I can't say I ever took the dogs medicine in place of mine--but around here, dog prescriptions come in green bottles!

Ohmigosh, now I can't get Happy Tapping with Elmo out of my head! Ah! That song is a curse, although it is funny to watch Elmo tap dancing up and down a flight of stairs. I think I have lost my sense of humor for adult things. This scares me.

WHAT?! The dogs medicine? Is that safe? Oh man, I would puke it up. Ok, no I wouldn't but I'd be scared it would do crazy things to me. Even though I know it probably wouldn't, but I'd still freak out.

For the love of all that is holy please do not ever mention any Elmo song ever record ever again. My daughter is staying with the in-laws tonight and now I totally have Happy Tapping with Elmo stuck in my head!

Now about the pill situation, did you give Puppy Bear your pill to make it even or did you hog them both? ;)

Seriously, nothing worse than being dead asleepy on the couch, and then deciding to move to the bed, and suddenly you're wide awake. I HATE that. I'm glad to report I don't know this Elmo song. We're mostly Elmo free around here. I mean, the kids know who he is, we even have 3 Elmo movie, but n sing alongs and such. Sorry about the pill switcharoo, hope that prozac worked for you.
