Happy St. Paddy's Day

Today's the day when everyone is Irish. That's the way it is in the Boston area, anyway. How about in the rest of the country?
We've got only one Irish person in our office. Her name is Colleen so she's pretty Irish. She's the only one dressed in green. I don't even have anything to wear that's green!
Anyway, I haven't posted in three days because there wasn't much to post about. The weather's been nice.....the job's been the same.....the kids are good.....anything else?
My quest to stop taking ibuprofen is not going well. It's going well in that I'm not taking it....but not going well in that I haven't been sleeping at all. Is it psychosomatic? I don't know. I've never been a good sleeper. I've tried every sleeping trick in the book. I guess I'm just going to have to get used to not using the ibuprofen as a crutch.
My sister uses calcium and magnesium supplement to help her sleep. Has anyone ever heard of this? I've only taken it for a few days and only been taking one pill per night. Sis said it might take a week or two to feel the affects. I'm waiting........rather impatiently.

NYQUIL? Sleepytime tea? Tylenol PM? I say Ambien...if you can get it :)

Found your blog by way of "It's always something" - my name is Colleen and my maiden name was Sullivan - can't get much more "green" than that! It's funny - I have been having trouble sleeping as well and if I do take anything, I have the weirdest dreams...also happens if I wake up too early and try to go back to sleep - if I do, the dreams are very strange! Maybe I'm very strange! Have a great day and I look forward to reading more :-)

I'm telling you the sleepytime tea works!

Isn't it awful to want to sleep and not be able to? I have two insomniac siblings and they suffer. Try melatonin supplement? At least it's OTC and natural.
