I'M SO EXCITED

The other day I told someone that I average about 5-6 hours of interrupted sleep a night, no naps during the day. Said person freaked out. She demanded to know, "How do you survive?!?" I don't know, I'm starting to ask myself the same question. How am I surviving on such little sleep? Interrupted sleep nonetheless!?!

When I was sick last month, I was surviving on cold medication. A pill to stay awake and a pill to go to bed. Those were the days. Nothing beats a deep night's sleep courtesy of Tylenol Cold, the nightime formula. Ahhhh.

Thinking about how tired I am tonight, I can't help but wish I could take cold medication all the time to function. I suppose I could, but then I would be considered an addict, and well, that's not cool. Too bad. How I do love that cold medication.

Coming off a month of the cold meds is hard. Tonight I feel like this -

  1. I didn't even have to read this post or play the video to know EXACTLY what scene the video was from.

    So... are you saying you also wear thonged spandex exercise get up?

  3. I, like Kelley, started quoting the lines to that scene before I even clicked "play." It's fitting, too, because I keep meaning to feature the "No Hope with Dope" episode on my blog in the near future. Please don't think I'm copycatting.

    There's no hope with dope, Cristin. Stay strong (this from a girl who's addicted to Dristan™ nasal spray).

  4. You could take a Tylenol PM.... That's not cold medicine. Thanks for that clip. I just laughed my head off for real. Hope you get at least one good night's rest this week! COME BACK TO SANTA BARBARA!!!!!

  5. We totally reenact this clip... at least the singing part, all the time. I never thought to look for the clip online. Thanks for sharing. Hope you survive your sleeplessness. My OB always told me that I needed at least 4 hours of straight, uninterrupted sleep to survive. But I think included in that was more hours of interrupted sleep.

  7. I knew what it was before I watched it too!I'm cool too! This makes me laugh because I've had awful allergies and have been sleeping only through benedryl at night. I finally forced myself to stop because I was enjoying the deep sleep a little too much.

  8. How funny. My Zach just referenced this clip a week ago and I knew I was in good company when everyone immediately knew what he was talking about. Good times. Now, go get a child-proof door handle to put in your kids' room and take a nap.

  9. I love Tylenol cold - nighttime...sometimes I wish I had a cold just so I could take it. When I was prego with Emma they put me on Promethazine for neausea and that was lovely too....the sleep part.
    By the way, how are you surviving on 5-6 hours of sleep? I feel spoiled that Emma sleeps so well now that I hear you're still waking up. I'll attribute it to the third child syndrome (not my parenting skills)....they know that they are ignored enough to not even put up a fight and just go back to sleep. :)! Poor Emma...
    Good luck with your sleep deprivation.

  10. This is THE episode for me. You know the one that always comes to mind first when someone even mentions Saved By the Bell?

    Maybe it just wasn't so much my generation, but I've never seen that episode.
