Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Sleepover in progress
On a very rainy day.

Critter has discovered Red vs Blue.

Tigger and his friends are playing upstairs right now.

I need to clean in the kitchen.

I'm just here to say that Ibuprofen bites.

I'm switching back to my preferred Aleve.

I did a search, and all I could come up with was that Ibuprofen is a prostaglandin inhibitor, which works to decrease muscle cramping. I found a nifty page that went into detail about it, and there are even prescription NSAIDs that don't cause a risk of stomach bleeding, so I may bring this up with the doctor when I check with him about all of this after the six weeks. Meanwhile, Aleve is ALSO a prostaglandin inhibitor, and works better against cramping For Me, so I'm switching.

Turns out Grace took Lexapro and ended up being switched to Effexor. She said it made her not care at all anymore. Grace was dropping off T, and we caught up a little. Summary: Life sucks to be a grown up.

Meanwhile, there are two guests, with as many as 5 more expected, for the sleepover. We've got pizzas to top, cheese, pepperoni, loaf sausage, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, cheesy poofs and a fully stocked cooler of drinks.

I've got the kitchen to clean and quicken to update. Both are the sorts of activities I often do during sleepovers, so that's cool.

WTMI? Or perhaps helpful..

At 16 I was put on the pill for cramps (a virgin), as well as Aleve (Anaprox). Over the last 2 years a real life saver for me is Evening Primrose Oil, capsule form. It aids with cramping, depression, and is also s'posed to be good for your skin. I take it everyday- don't think there are side affects. More info. *hug*
