Mojo Nomo

Last time I posted, I was looking for my mojo.  I think it ended up in my toilet around 3 AM along with my stomach contents.  After posting, I called K who was kind enough to go to the grocery store with me.  I kept feeling worse and shopping was horrible, as looking at the food just made me want to vomit.  I even considered making myself barf just to feel better, but figured that wasn’t exactly when I wanted to do at Safeway at 10 PM.

I also remembered during that time why I quite possibly never want to be pregnant again.  Because that is how I feel just about every second of my pregnancy.  On the verge of barfing.  Not cool. Continue reading »


I’ve lost my mojo

I am sitting here, feeling like I could throw up any minute, tired as anything, and needing to (1) write a grocery list, (2) go grocery shopping, (3) clean up the disaster that is my house and (4) finish a LOT of work on ConnectedMoms.com that I wanted (actually NEED) to release tomorrow.  I worked from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm standing all day, and do NOT feel like doing anything other than sleep.  My head hurts, my throat hurts, my back and feet hurt, I am congested and very nauseous.

Skip was home all day with Ace and Nate and part of the day with Calista (I had arranged for her to be out of the house for part of the day, since Skip is quite sick himself).  He will have no car tomorrow since I lent our car to K while her car is out of commission, and he and the kids need food for tomorrow.

Narcolepsy, Anyone?

I went to the doctor today about my myriad of strange health issues, including dizzy spells, episodes of feeling like I am going to fall over asleep, chronic fatigue, practically falling asleep while driving, short on breath…

I did a lung capacity test which showed I have very diminished lung capacity so I was sent for a chest x-ray to investigate the cause.  I had a blood draw to check my thyroid, and my doctor suspects I may be narcoleptic (!), so I’ve been referred to a neurologist to look into it further.

Like you are probably thinking, narcolepsy is when you just fall asleep at weird times.  But there is more to it, and after reading a while on the Internet, I actually would not be surprised if that is my problem.  I sleep a LOT and even after a good night’s rest I tend to take naps.  Naps don’t refresh me for very long.  I sometimes am hit with the overwhelming feeling of sleep that I can’t fight off (like lately, when I am driving).  I have a history of doing activities in my sleep, such as having complete phone conversations that I am later unaware I ever had.  Freaky.

Asleep at the Wheel

Something is wrong with me as of late when it comes to driving and staying awake.  I have been having serious trouble keeping my eyes open while I am driving.

It started on Monday afternoon, as I was driving my mom and niece down to Tukwila where they were spending the night in a hotel so as to make an early morning flight out of SeaTac.  As I was driving, my eyes kept closing and I kept having to try to force them back open.  I felt myself swerving a bit a few times and I finally had to wake my mom up (guess we were all a little tired) and have her drive the rest of the way as it was scaring me.

What’s Next?

I’ve got a lot to write about but don’t know what to start with or what people even find interesting…  I could write about my mom’s visit, canceling the kids’ swim lessons, my sudden problem with almost falling asleep when I drive (!), how I’ve managed to continue to keep my house clean, why I quit taking Ace to early intervention services (that post is long overdue), our guitar hero adventures (complete with video), the felt food I’ve been learning to make…  If you have something in particular you want me to write about, post a comment and let me know.  I’m sleepy and I’ve got brain overload tonight.


Neither Here Nor There

I have lots to post about tonight!

I will start with Baby Boot Camp.  I’ve had some comments from readers who are thinking of doing the same, and let me tell you, it was worth it!  With the exception of one night, the boys have slept through the night every night since I did it!  Sweet bliss!  They still put up a good show when we put them in their cribs, but I’ve noticed once the door is shut, they know it’s time as they are quiet and go to bed like good little monsters.  I don’t know why I didn’t put them through boot camp sooner…  :)

Next is the December 7th accident.  We got the estimate on the Pacifica, and it is around $4,600!  I didn’t think it was that bad, but I guess it is.  Luckily, my insurance is good and they’ve already sent the check for repairs and we’ll take it to the shop Monday.  They’ve also already cut a check for new car seats — again! — and will arrange for a rental.  Too bad it’s going to take a good 2 weeks for the vehicle to be repaired, and I wonder if Christmas is going to slow it down even more?  I hope not!
