Apparently I Over Dose on Tylenol...


Last night I had a killer head ache so I grabbed a bottle of Tylenol and dumped a few in my hand. Okay, by a few I mean four. And though I realized that the quantity was definitely over the dosage recommended on the label, I took them. The headache was that bad. (In my defense, I always take 3 because 2 never works - and I take them very rarely.) About 45 minutes later I was in a dead sleep on the sofa. This ordinarily would not seem so strange except that it was 4:30 in the afternoon and I was supposed to be listening to Mr. N read. He woke me up, announcing that he was done with his 30 minutes so I groggily called Miss A over to complete her reading. I slept through her half hour as well. After she woke me up I trudged into the kitchen to make dinner. I thought I must be sick - I had zero energy and felt like I was going to collapse, so I chopped up a few apples and reheated various leftovers from the fridge for dinner. I sat with the family, not eating, because I felt so horrible...like I was drugged - which is when I glanced at the bottle of Tylenol on the counter....

Yep. 4 Tylenol PM are definitely too much. I will, in the future make close note of my drug of choice as well as the recommended dosage.

When I got home from Scouts tonight (a room full of overly hyper Wolves and Bears) I had another killer head ache. After yesterday's O.D. I sent my kids to the basement while I enjoyed a very large diet coke before tackling homework and dinner

Well...all I can say is you made dad laugh his "big laugh," you know the one. Its the one when he thinks something is REALLY REALLY funny! Good job. I loved them....but I don't think I'll blog on my part of the addictive conversation. :) Don't know if that would go over well. In answer to your questions: 1 - yes Cheryl's salon closed - all her stylists went to other salons w/o telling her 2 - Sammy (legally known as Sara Samuleson Richards) is a Kappa friend 3 - Thank you for the compliment. I don't think I'll under go any changes until I see you and you will possibly involved :)

I'm glad that I inspired this, but I will say you blog made me laugh way more than mine did! If it makes you feel better, once I had the same kind of overdose on cold medicine. Now I just don't take it anymore.
