A ho hum day...

It would be nice if I had anything interesting to report.

Oh, Nathan fell outside and bit the inside of his lip hard enough that his mouth was bleeding quite nicely.

I don't know, I spent most of the day here in front of the computer. I did the same thing yesterday uploading all my cake pictures to my blog. Today was watching movies. I guess I cleaned a little. I did figure this evening that I needed to use some of the fruit that I bought this weekend, so I did a crostata. I don't have a picture because it is still baking. It's like a pie without a pie tin, the crust is folded over the filling. A tart/pie. Peaches, nectarines, and raspberries. With cinnamon and mace. Should be interesting, since I improvised most of the filling. I'll post the recipe on my food blog.

I have discovered that the medication they have me on is causing some slight insomnia or something. I stayed up until 2:30 am Saturday morning finishing a graduation cake for a friend, and I wasn't even tired. I made my self go to bed, but kept waking up. I am usually dead without at least 7 hours, but I was running on less than 5 all Saturday. And I didn't get tired until after midnight again. So Sunday night I had to make a run to the shoppette at 11:30 for some sleeping pills, and was still up until 1:00 am. What gives? And I am not exactly tired today, but I have no real energy, just kind of sitting here. I guess I am having the blues a little today. This whole summer vacation thing is throwing me off.

I think I will be taking the sleeping pills again tonight, maybe a little earlier. I know my body needs the rest, it just doesn't think it does. But I have managed to catch up on some tv episodes online of shows I like. And desert should taste yummy once it gets done baking. I just hope I have more energy tomorrow, or at least care what the house looks like by this weekend, since most of my family and some family friends of ours will be here for lunch and then Oren has his party...

Hey girl! I feel for you w/the insomnia! That is hard! I will be praying!
Hang in there! I just went to the eye dr. AND the dermatologist yesterday! Not fun! I have rosacea (reddening of the face) and, lucky me, I also have ocular rosacea which means my eyes bother me, too! The dr. prescribed me a lotion for my face and a pill that will, hopefully, help both my face and eyes!!! :)) Sorry - didn't mean to make this all about me! I guess I need prayers as well. My eyes have been bothering me for a LONG time and it starts to interfere w/life! I will be "hangin' in there," too! :))

Like Rachel, I will be heading over to check out your cakes!!! :)

Hope today has gone better for you, as far as having energy and feeling like doing stuff. I have been fairly lethargic today, but that's my fault because I stayed up late reading a book again. :/

Sleep problems run in the Danes family - at least with all the women. I don't have any problem falling asleep, but wake up after 3-4 hours of sleep EVERY time if I don't take a sleeping aid. I use generic Benadryl. It is the exact SAME ingredient as the Sleep-aid by Tylenol, only MUCH, MUCH cheaper. Works great.
