that was tiring, dreams, draft, playoffs


i worked over forty hours last week on the habitat for
humanity house
that was tiring
the mornings were ok but as the day went on it got hot

i now have a lot of respect for those construction workers
who do this every day all year round in all kinds of weather
especially those guys who are older

i will say that i slept the best i have slept in a long time
the aricept insomnia was overcome with marked fatigue
(interesting also was that i did  not have any of my aricept
dreams last week)

so now ive found a drug free treatment for insomnia
no rx, no cost
work your a$$ off every day or substitute a good exercise program
it worked well for me
no side effects except for sore muscles and some scrapes and
bruises and some areas of sunburn
but it was worth it


if you read this blog some you know i have aricept dreams
thats vivid dreams that are the side effect of aricept (donepezil)
that i take for my diagnosis

heck yesterday i took a noon nap and i ninjaed a whole room
full of intruders in my bedroom

but last night i had an interesting dream
i went away on a retreat where a lot of my old medical school
classmates were there
interesting was that i recognized them all and they all had been aged
so that i saw them like they would look today 30 years later
you know like what you see when you take a computer program to
age someone

wonder how accurate it was

i enjoyed the nfl draft
ok i was so exhausted from working at the habitat house that i slept
through it all but i did read about it and watched the dvr of some of it
the cowboys did ok in the draft
they got an animal for their defensive backfield
a honey badgers buddy

i cant wait to see andrew luck play and rg3 play this year
sorry andrew youre going to take a beating this year
rg3 you should fair better in the trauma area

it just seemed to be a better draft this year and seemed more
exciting to watch

now we have to wait 4 months until we can watch it on tv again
thats the hard part

the nba playoffs started this weekend
the two teams to beat it seems now that chicago wont make it
is miami and oklahoma city
unless the lakers really kick in good
and if the spurs age hits them in the later rounds

the most valuable player is lebron james
he does everything for his team and plays all positions
kevin durant is the second choice

cant wait to watch the playoffs as they progress
