Sleep’n’Schtuff

Last night was day #2 for trying out my melatonin.  I’ve been taking two quick dissolving tablets under the tongue for a total of 6mg.  The doctor prescribed me 10mg dosage but I was worried I would be too groggy taking 3 pills.  I’m already pretty tired taking 2.  I take them between 9-9:30 and wondering if maybe I should be taking them between 8:30-9.  I can tell you that I get incredibly lightheaded if I don’t take them and lay down soon after.

It is also the second night in a row I’ve awakened at 1am and tossed and turned.  I’m questioning the dose.  Do I take an extra one to sleep right through?  Because the pills are now waking me up when I want to be awake.  I don’t have that problem when I’m not taking them.  However, I don’t sleep as deeply without it.

What is a girl to do?  I shall keep taking it until I see the specialist on the 2oth.  And the benefit is that I can use it when I’m having problems sleeping at Cortejo’s.  Take two a few hours before bed and if I wake up, I can have a third pill.  I can’t do that now because I need to be awake early and be somewhere.   They’ll be beneficial at least in that respect.

I tried out my new woodburning kit last night.  I had this old crappy fork thing from Ikea that I’m pretty sure is too flimsy to actually use with food.  Maybe salad.  Anyway, I burned my initials into it.  I’ve got a wooden picture frame too, that I’m still trying to decide how to decorate.  They’re not expensive at all, so I may get a few more until I make one that I like.  Ideally, I want to get comfortable enough with it that I can buy some wooden feast gear and burn some nice designs into it.

Meeko is being a little jerk lately.  I think it’s because I’m not home that often.  That and there are two cats hanging around the building.  He spends an inordanate amount of time going back and forth between the kitchen and living room windows.  He jumped up on the desk where I had the wood burning kit open (not on, thank God) and sent the whole thing flying.  I sent him to his room and sure enough he didn’t come out for about an hour or more.  Even then he sort of peeked around the corner of the door and gave me that, “Can I come out now?” look.

Vee remembered to make me a name-tag for the big event this weekend at work.  Someone always forgets to make me one.  She says we’re going to decorate our own.  I am giving serious thought to Anne Murray being mauled by a werewolf…while she is in the midst of singing “Daydream Believer”.  “Cheer up sleepy Jea…ahhhhhh”.

Putting together a demo this morning.  Needs to be updated.  It’s not too bad, I don’t think.
