Please, some zzzz's

My husband must have taken an Ambien to 'go to sleep early' at 11. I stayed up about 30 minutes longer to finish up some laundry, but did NOT take an Ambien. Scott is now snoring loud enough you can hear him all over the downstairs. I'm used to his snoring, but if he is already snoring before I've gone to sleep, it keeps me from falling asleep.

It's already midnight and I have to get up at 6:30 to get the boys ready for school. If I take an Ambien, I'll be TIRED tomorrow, and I have my first one-on-one with my new boss at 10 am. If I don't take it, I'll be up half the night and be exhausted tomorrow night when Lethe and the Fam get here. Guess I'll be taking that little pill.

On a completely unrelated note, when I was cleaning out the garage so I could paint the floors, I took anything that needed to go to the dump and just piled it up in the backyard. I meant to take it to the dump within a day or so. We just now got around to making the dump run and you would be amazed what we found. An old grill, which I replaced with a brand-spanking new gas grill for Father's Day, had become the home to a cute little mouse. I felt so bad kicking him out of his home, but we certainly don't need mice living in our backyard. Thankfully, having house guests, namely children who would probably love to play on the swingset in the backyard, gave us the energy to make two trips to the dump with the car just LOADED. I also pulled out all of the sunflowers that are now an annual part of my garden. Whether I want them or not. What was I thinking? :)

I went to put new sheets on the guest bed and found that the nice fitted sheet now had absolutely no elastic. How do you lose the ENTIRE elastic from a queen fitted sheet? I'll have to get some thin elastic and spend goodness only knows how long threading it through there.

Ok, I'm actually going to take an Ambien and try to get some sleep before it really DOES get to be too late.

So sunflowers aren't a good idea?

I love them - they get like 8 feet tall and really brighten up the backyard. Two years in a row, the boys and I planted different variety of sunflowers.

That was about 3 years ago. They come back every year, and in the oddest places. Mostly in the garden, thankfully, but the seeds have spread to the corner of the yard, so there too. They just keep coming back, and blocking things we have planted since then.

Oh, and you must wear gloves to pull them each year because they are covered with this itchy prickly hair.

I wish the ambien worked for me. I have tried them 2 nights in a row, last night taking a second one after 2.5 hours and still did not fall asleep and stay asleep. How long do they take to actually help?

If you still need a hand with the elastic-needing sheet, I have an Elastic Wizard sewing machine attachment. (It's just as goofy and plastic-y as it sounds, but it works pretty well with most elastic varieties.)
