My blogging friends are the best in this world of blogging and are always writing interesting and informative post. Many times after reading one of your post I run into the other room to find a pen and piece of paper to write down what your telling me.
A few weeks back while visiting my friend the Rocky Mountain Woman I read about a pill she had taken that gave her the giggles while attending a very stressful meeting. Giggles are good! Maybe not in a meeting but how many meetings does this ole grandma attend these days?
So I had to find what our Rocky Mountain Woman was taking to release some stress in her life. It was Calms Forte which of course I had no clue what this was but determined to find it.
I checked at our local Wal Mart and with no luck. I went to our very small health food store and they had one box of this but it was Calms Forte for Kids. Being desperate to lighten up I bought the kids dosage thinking I would just triple the dosage amount on the box.
I was also delighted to see that it was a sleep aid which besides not laughing these days not sleeping is right up there on my list of aggravations. Many nights I toss and turn so much that when I get up the next morning my mattress is almost on the floor on one side. Maybe it's time to invest in a new mattress. haha
That night I could not wait to see if it worked for me. I followed the directions on the bottle and doubled the dosage. Like most nights I grabbed my Nook and settled in for the night. This night I had downloaded Still Foolin' 'Em by Billy Crystal.
Comedian Billy Crystal wrote this book about turning 65. I thought since I have so many darn issues since my big 65th Birthday I thought why not. He might help me with some of my difficult issues of growing older.
Well two hours into this book I am in the middle of my bed laughing hysterically. Seriously I mean it's the kind of laughter that I am sure if the cowboy had not moved out last month he would of called me to see what the heck was I doing waking up everyone on North Forty.
I was so loud that Tinkerbell and her new sister Billy Sue ran out of the room in search of a hiding place. The louder I laughed the harder I laughed. It was like I could not control myself. Hysterical in the middle of the night in the middle of my bed laughing out of control.
Finally I settled down and read a little while longer and then slept all night long. First time in months that I had actually slept and honestly I can't remember when I had laughed this hard.
The next morning I ask myself was it Billy Crystal's writing or was it the Calms Forte. The next night I continued the book but much to my disappointment I did not laugh out loud but I did enjoy reading the book.
I have been sleeping better though since discovering these pills.
Since my last post when I am not taking these pills and reading I have been running around with my head off cut off trying to keep up with all the work out here. I have mowed every day and thought I was caught up then it rained again. haha Monday I started all over again and now have about ten acres left to be caught up,
We have 40 percent chance of rain for the next four or five days which means of course more mowing. I should not complain because God has Blessed us with rain and this last week the weather was gorgeous. Cool in the mornings and sometimes while I was on the tractor I pretended I was mowing property in the state of Maine instead of Texas. Boy can I dream. I still think of my trip to Maine a year ago in September and I find myself wishing I were there enjoying their leaf peeping.
Speaking of leaf peeping last Sunday I was out in the country with two of my Sister-in-laws enjoying the weather when I pointed to some trees and I said, "Oh look there are some trees turning color!" My sister-in-law laughed and said,"Those trees are dead not changing colors!" I guess I need to have my eyes checked too.
Linda and I had worked so hard for our sale of the pillows. It rained the big day of the show so we had to change it to the next weekend. It was soooo hot and muggy and we were miserable. Also very disappointed in the turn out and our sales but we had fun making them and plan on selling maybe on line or other places.
I hope you are well and enjoying some fall weather. It is still in the eighties here so when I read about snow some of you are already getting I can't believe it. haha
Stay tuned for one of my Candy giveaways coming soon. I have not had one in a very long time and so I hope this week to do that for you.
Have a wonderful weekend and Laugh!
Love to all
