Orange Fizziness

I know a lot of people make "New Year's Resolutions" around this time... I for one hate that phrase. I would rather make short term goals and hit them. HOWEVER, one goal I do have for this WHOLE YEAR is to make at least one blog post per week. This being the first full week of the year, I'm starting now!

I previously blogged about the weird dreams I have when I take Emergen-C before bed. I have now determined that it is not only this health related product, but Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold (orange flavor) that produces this outcome as well. I have had a sinus infection since Saturday (not long enough for antibiotics, sadly) so I've been taking all kinds of decongestants and whatnot. My favorite discovery so far has been the new orange fizz. The dosage states that a person can take this product every 4 hours. If I followed that, I would never be conscious. It knocks me out for a full 8 hours, meaning I sleep through my alarm if I don't take it early enough in the evening (late for work TWICE this week).

Last night, I had one of the strangest dreams and I'm convinced it's a result of my medication. I dreamed that I was in a field with praying mantises all around me. Not really a big deal, right? Except, in my dream, these little insects had two spiked forelegs (which they actually do) that were used to dig into people, transfer poison into our blood, and kill us (which they DO NOT do - to my knowledge). One mantis got its spikes into me, but I got them out in just enough time to not be killed. I finally escaped the field and went to my sister's house where her kids were OBSESSED with lizards. I found it strange, but figured "kids, they have weird obsessions". By the end of my dream, after I had unconsciously turned off my alarm, my sister and her husband were starting to turn INTO lizards. This finally freaked me out enough to wake me up...

On a side note, I do have other goals, one of which I have enlisted the help of a friend for. Here's hoping success is in the near future! Let me know if you see any changes :)

Another side note... I changed the name of my business AND my business blog. If you'd like to see it (I'm trying to not make it easily accessible to a few certain people) let me know and I'll give you the address!
