A connection??

Almost every Saturday Hubby and I go out to lunch. It's the only day we really have together. We usually run errands and end up having lunch out. It's also about the only day I drink beer. I really like beer, I just don't drink it during the week. At lunch on Saturdays I will have 1 or 2 beers. It never fails after lunch that I will end up taking a nap. I always put it down to the alcohol in the beer and didn't really think too much about it. That was until yesterday.

Yesterday I was reading and I felt like something sweet. We had some cookies in the kitchen so I had a couple of them. Within 45 minutes I was passed out on the couch. Again, not an unusual situation for a Sunday afternoon, except for a few things. First, I was really into the book I was reading and that usually keeps me awake and focused. Second, I wasn't tired at all. In fact, I couldn't nap just a little earlier because I was so sore from my brutal workouts on Saturday. I could not get comfortable. But I ate the cookies and passed out like a drunken sailor. The really odd part was the way I woke up. I felt like I was swimming up from the depths. I literally had to lay there for a few minutes to clear my head and feel human again.

This really got me to thinking. I don't think my Saturday afternoon naps have anything to do with the alcohol. Well, it does but not what I thought. I think the passing out, from beer or cookies, is my blood sugar. Diabetics have to be very careful when drinking because it can cause a severe low blood sugar reaction. I think that's what's happening to me. Now I love nothing more than a nap on a weekend afternoon, but these are not regular naps. These are like drug induced comas and I'm coming to the realization that my drug is sugar and/or alcohol. It may be time to give up my weekly beer. {{Sigh}}

Okay, I've been tagged by Ellie for 7 random things. I have to think about this. I'm not sure there are 7 things I can put out there on the Internet :)

On a completely unrelated subject, Hubby has decided he wants to mount his new HDTV on the wall. That scares me. Hanging something that heavy (though it's not near as heavy as a regular TV) on the wall. Especially here in Hawaii where single-wall construction is so common and how are house is made. Maybe I can talk him into a plasma mount that stands independently rather than hanging something on the wall. Scary!!!!

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
