Just call me Dopey



Yup you can - honest - call me Dopey.............. 

Cause trust me right now I am Dopey in every sense of the word..............

All this multi-tasking and rushing around and working till I dropped was bound to take its toll on my body - or in this case my mind............ 

Let me tell you what happened............ 

The other day my prescriptions were all renewed.  Usually I put my morning pills in the kitchen on a shelf over the sink - easy access when the eyes aren't fully open.

The night time pills I put by the sink in the bathroom upstairs - the last thing I do at night - pop my night time pill fall into bed and sleep (well that hasn't been working too well recently - but that's not part of THIS story)

Well when I brought my prescriptions home the other day for some reason (god only knows why) I put all the pills by the bathroom sink upstairs.

This morning when I reached for my pills I slapped myself upside the head and cursed.  No problem - thought I - I would simply take my juice and coffee upstairs take the pills there and get on with my day....................
EXCEPT 

As I swallowed the first pill I realized that it was the night time pill................ and my body was gonna go into sleep mode in about 15 minutes and stay there for about 7 hours !!!!!!
I have been pumping caffeine into this old body of mine since then............ trying desperately to keep it moving - keep my eyes open - and my brain functioning.  Not an easy task on the best of days - but seeing as I am now on week 3 of sleep deprivation I could be main lining the caffeine and still not be functioning properly................. 


I have a strange feeling it is gonna be one helluva long afternoon........... and bed is gonna look pretty damn good to me tonite............. 
Now if I can just remember to move the pills back downstairs - tomorrow should be a better day...........
