Um, How do you get to sleep without Ambien???

So last night I decide that I am going to try to sleep without using my wonderful Ambien. I totally love this stuff because I can actually sleep!! I bought some Nite-trition™ Restful Sleep Supplement from Origins yesterday. I really wanted to try to go back to using Melatonin for sleeping. I used it years ago and it worked for me, but I couldn't always get my brand and had to stop using it. I also thought that spending $15 a bottle was a lot...Off course this bottle was $35, go figure. On the other hand the ambien is $40 a month. It all works out in the end I think. So I used it last night and think it would have worked great if only my brain would have shut the hell up!!! Oh and if when it finally did shut the hell up and I would go to sleep that I wouldn't have the totally paralyzing dreams that I have that totally freak me out and make me force myself awake...grrrr. Not good...nope, not good at all... I think I might have gotten some sleep, but nothing to brag about that's for sure!!
So I might try this again tonight. I don't know. I just want to be able to get off of Ambien so I can stop the binge eating and finally lose some of my fat that I gained when I was pregnant with miss Abigail.
Oh the things we will do to think we will look better...

Do they EVER listen??

Ok, yeah I know she's only 2 1/2, but is she EVER going to listen to me when I talk to her??? I have the sweetest most adorable child on the planet (of course I do, I'm the mother...), but boy, I just don't understand this whole not hearing me thing... (Yes I know she can hear me, but can she HEAR me...) Why is it that when someone comes over she's is so responding that it makes me look like I am crazy? I have to admit that I have probably got the easiest child in the world to deal with. She is just so wonderful, but I hate not being heard... I know, it's a conspiracy!!! She and her dad have set this up to make me think I'm crazy... That's it!!! Of course!!

She is cute, isn't she??

Ok, I'm going to do this!

Well I was bored... Not really bored, but needed an outlet. I think this might be what I am looking for! I hope I will be able to keep it up and make it fun.

I am a 41YO SAHM with a beautiful 2YO daughter named Abigail and an awesome husband named Phil. We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in May!! I think it's a pretty terrific family!! Oh, and my name is Bonnie!

DH and I took up beading almost 2 years ago. I can't believe how much those little beads can multiply!! Phil loves to make rosaries and I like to make these caterpillar type bracelets! Tons of fun!! I will have to take pictures and post them at a later date... I will be back sometime!
