a single step...

So I shoved some things aside in the garage and started 4 piles. (Sorry, Drew, we'll have a one-car garage for a while.) Things I can sell at a garage sale, things I can sell on Amazon, things I need to put in the attic, and things I can donate. I felt good about that step. Took a little break to check Twitter.

I took a buttload of books off my bookshelves (I don't have books just to have them, I only keep the ones I really love), made a mental note to nag the crap outta Drew so he'll do something with all the textbooks he'll never touch again, and put a bunch of stuff in my Amazon pile. Felt good about it. Took a little break to check blogs.

I cleaned out the cabinets in my living room. Put a TON of stuff in the garage sale pile. Put a bunch of half-burned candles in the trash (why did I keep those??). Put a bunch of stuff in Ace's scrapbook. Felt good about it. Took a break to pee.

That's when the Benadryl hit me. I'm trying to give myself a few minutes for the dizziness to pass because I'm DESPERATE to start the kitchen cabinet exodus, but I'm really thinking it's not going to happen. Dadgummit, I only took one pill.

I don't think the kitchen cabinet exodus will take all that long. Wish me luck.

Just push through the benadryl. It won't last long if you don't give in.

Why don't you take Liquid Children's Benadryl? That way you can regulate the amount and get the benefits, without getting the woozies and the Benadryl hangover?
It's what I do, and I've found 1/4 of a TEASPOON works for me without making me wonky.

Bendadryl knocks me the heck out....for the rest of the day! In fact, I'm not sure if it actually HELPS the allergy symptoms or just puts me to sleep so I'm not bothered with them. Same for Vicodin for the back pain. 1/2 a pill and I'm OUT. Can't drive, can't function...out like a light for the rest of the day. I'm such a lightweight!

Sounds like you got a lot done. I love how you make a note to remind you to nag the hub. HA HA HA
