Once again, an unintended long absence. I've been a sucky blogger lately. Ah well.

  • Last Sunday was my first Sunday at the new church. So of course my body decided that Saturday was the perfect day to develop a blazing cold. I spent all Sunday morning wishing I was at home in bed--not because of the congregation--they're WAY cool, and I couldn't be happier to be there--but because I was run down and icky and cough-y (coffee=good, cough-y=BAD).
  • After two nights of taking Benadryl to knock myself out enough to quit coughing and go to sleep, only to wake up in the morning literally unable to function until 10 or 11 (I swear, that stuff acts like a 12-hour narcotic on me)...I decided the last two nights to only take Robitussin DM before bed. Well, my body apparently has decided Robitussin DM is the most potent amphetamine ever, since I've spent the last two nights staring wide-eyed at the ceiling until almost 3 AM, only to have Kiddo get up at 5:45. Spending the day half-asleep isn't the best way to impress the new co-workers from what I hear, so tonight I've decided no drugs whatsoever. No cough supressant, no nothing. I'll let you know how it goes.
  • I LOVE my new place. Love the pastor, love my co-workers, love the congregation, love the kids I've been able to meet so far...good stuff.
  • This coming Sunday is Sweetie's and my wedding anniversary (I LOVE YOU!!!!). It's also my installation. AND the day I leave for confirmation camp for a week. So basically not much happening this Sunday. =)

And last but not least: countdown to Harry Potter Book Seven next month! (I just finished re-reading book 6 a couple of nights ago, so I'm ready to jump right in with my Muggle nerd-dom!)

My nerd-dom is much more progressed than yours. I started with book one shortly before Memorial Day weekend. I'm about half-way through book 6 now. I can't wait!!!!

I've recently learned not to take anything "DM" before bed. Try cough drops and just plain old Mucinex. (Not DM). I'm going through the same thing as you, sounds like, except I'm pregnant and therefore can't take much either. Anyway, try it. :)

Rev -
It's called 8:00 bedtime! Plus, you should have plenty of time, seeing as you only work an hour a week!!

welcome back! You know... not to sound like a nag or anything but the best is Orange Juice and no drugs - they only suppress the cold and make it linger, and linger, and linger, and well you get the idea.

Anyhoo welcome back & congrats on the new locale!
