Slept well and long last night, and as far as I know the dog did not even try to get on the bed. YIPEEEEEE lets see if that lasts. I am weak as a kitten and hilariously breathless, and napping like mad, so am finding it a little limiting around blog inspiration. How much do you REALLY want to hear about me sleeping?
Went into the farmacia to buy sinus meds as my head is doing it's own rumba...I am not a big one to take medication, and I took this with some trepidation as I have to teach two classes tonight, and being hopped up hyper will not help, nor will irresistible sleepiness, but sometimes we are desperate over here...I really don't usually use meds, I don't take seasick medication because it makes me dozy, and I am good at seasickness...but I need my wits about me. Wish me luck tonight. Brought in the name of the active ingredients, my little Catalan-English dictionary is not so hot on medical terms.
This reminds me of a guy I know, he was home with his two kids and sick as a dog with something or other, the kids were 18 months and 3 or so and very active. He took some sort of cold medication, and it knocked him out cold...literally he could not stay awake. This is a problem when you are home alone with two active toddlers. I think he solved it brilliantly. He took the portable phone and both kids into the elder child's bedroom, then he lay down on the floor in front of the door. Now this man is very big, not fat at all, but his shoulders must be at least as wide as two of me, so he lay his bulk down in front of the closed inward opening door, phoned his wife at work and told her what had happened and what he was doing, and went to sleep. I don't remember if she left work, or called every half hour or so, but what a dilemma and what a solution.
On another note, I have heard rumours about a new show on CBC called Little Mosque on the Prairie, and I have even seen some clips on the website. It looks very funny, has anyone out there seen it? Is it as hilarious as it looks? here's a link to the CBC website with some clips for those of you who cannot get it. The show is, as you would imagine, about a small Muslim community living in small town Saskatchewan. Ripe for humour it seems to me.
Oh, and the guy from that book....not dead yet d*mn it.
