It is, and I kid you not, 12:21 on a school night! What the heck am I doing at my blog? I am trying, anything, to work off the caffeine I consumed this evening.
Let me back up. Tonight, errrr, make that last night, was the familiy medicine dinner. It was supposed to be held at Preston's. Very Lesley-posh-like. Unfortunately, at the last minute, we got a call that due to the number in attendance (around 14) it had to be moved to a larger restaurant. Victorias.
I was actually quite dissapointed. We go to Victoria's quite regularly. I was really excited about trying Preston's. But, we weren't paying for the dinner so how can we complain?
As soon as we got to the dinner, I found myself nursing quite a doozy of a headache. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to bring anything to take, and the other person I knew there -- Summer, didn't have anything either. So I ran to the corner drugstore (through negative degree weather) and grabbed some Excedrin. They had Tylenol as well but due to the Tylenol-dependency I encountered, try to avoid that when possible. Excedrin does have a bit of Tylenol in it but not as much as straight-Tylenol. Like you all care. Sorry. Back to the story.
Don't forget that Excedrin has caffeine when I tell you that I also had 2 cokes to try to ease the headache and some chocolate cake. Okay, so the cake really wasn't thinking about the headache. It was thinking about being a 5 layer chocolate cake. All this at a dinner that started at 7:30 and didn't end until 10:00. What the HECK was I thinking? This coming from a girl who, besides the occasional chocolate-fix, avoids caffeine altogether to help aid her tendency toward insomnia-related-issues. Not only did I consume one item with caffeine, I consumed THREE!
So it is now 12:26, and I am sitting at my computer, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, knowing I head to work at 8am. I am also going to be working a full day at Mayo and going to lunch with a friend, completely shutting out a possibility of a nap before starting up on RLS work.
Oh well. 12:27. Gonna try to fall asleep again. What the HECK was I thinking?!
I'll post again tomorrow. Errrr, make that day. Night folks.
