Good Friends Rule!

We had a wonderful GNO (Girls Night Out) last night. Despite the waiter who spent most of the evening sitting on a bench with his cellphone or watching the Monday Night Football Game. Seriously, S. had to go outside to find him to ask for water, our food had been delivered and we still didn't have silverware and S. never got the coffee she ordered! Despite that we had a great time. Good Food, Margarita's and lots of laughter. It's the good friends that keep the mean people away and I'm so thankful for all the ladies that help me recharge my batteries, stay sane and smile indulgently when I'm so ditzy I really shouldn't be allowed out of the house.

I now understand why Schizonphrenic's have a hard time staying on their medicine. I've been taking Thyroid medicine for about 3-4 months now and my prescription ran out. Well, since we Mom's do everything for everyone else and never for ourselves, I neglected to get it refilled. I mean "I've been feeling fine. Pshaw.. that medicine doesn't really do anything for me. I'll get it refilled...eventually....I'm busy right now... blah...blah...blah..." Well... apparently "that medicine" does do something.... For the last week, I've been so tired I can hardly function...I feel like I'm walking in fog and I can barely string a coherent sentence together...not to mention that I keep turning the heater up to sub-Saharan setting and whining that I can't keep warm. And biggest faux paus of all - despite at least one email reminder, I forgot T.'s birthday tiara and jewels at dinner last night. SORRY T!!!

As parents, we'd never let our kids prescriptions run out... So, why it's okay for us to do it to ourselves I don't know. Probably the same reason it's okay for us to eat the crusts off the grilled cheese sandwiches and call it lunch, take the free phone when the kids gets the fancy pants, whoop-de-do phone or buy a brand new beautiful, soft blanket to snuggle under on the sofa only to discover it hidden under the sheets on "someone's" bed. Hmmmm....

I'm off today to pick up the prescription and I'm tempted to take a handful as soon as I get them. Make the fog go away!!!

Thanks to all my friends who have put up with my ditziness... I promise I'll keep medicating... Better living through Chemistry!


  1. How did I not know about this blog??? Well, regardless, I'm here now and you're stuck with me. I too take thyroid medicine and I too think it does nothing. I didn't gain energy or lose weight when I started, so what good is it? But I am a rule-follower, so have never allowed my rx to run out. :)

    Anyway, enough about me and my sluggish thyroid. May I have permission to add you to my blogroll? And thank you for having me in yours!! (although since my blog address has changed, I don't think it will update for you unless you change it .....) Let me know!

  2. Love blogs...good stuff...keep it coming
