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!!!!
