many hours, one ambien and a lost wallet later. . .

Talk about better living through pharmicals! Don't get me wrong. I'm not a fanatic pill popper. But I'd just like to take a moment and sing a small opera in praise of Ambien. I took one tiny little white pill and sleep away 10 hours of my flight.

If only my good luck had lasted.

I lost my wallet today in a taxi, I think, I'm a little fuzzy about the brain. We were amongst the hustle and bustle and trying desperately to find a taxi driver that spoke even a semblance of English and somewhere in the mix I lost my bag. Money, credit card, drivers licence and two apples that an irate vendor made me buy after I accidentally knocked them off her cart.

There is nothing like running the streets in downtown Bangkok in the pouring rain trying look in every fuschia taxi that goes by in case you see your bag.

I finally gave up and headed back to my hotel. I got a fabulous meal and a foot and neck massage after I bummed some cash off a friend. Maybe tomorrow I'll sort this whole thing out. Right now I'm too tired.
Maybe you'll have better luck than me. Here is the giveaway for today. I'm not entirely sure when I'll pick the winner. I'm flyin' by the seat of my pants these days.

Leave a comment and be in the drawing to win this One Lucky Baby minky quilt!

Ambien is a LIFESAVER! I am a complete fearful & miserable prick when I don't get enough sleep, totally angry & irritable.
I had never taken ambien until I had heart surgery and developed horrible insomnia afterwards.
For me, there is nothing worse than not getting sleep.
I was prescribed it in 2000. It saved my life. I have been on it for 10 years and have always taken 10-20 mg a night. Whenever I mention to my Dr. my concerns about staying on it, he says, "If it works, don't fix it." It works. NO Hangover and no side effects. There is a slight sleep eating thing ONCE in awhile. But aside from leaving peanutbutter dollops on the counter, I have no complaint.
