Last night when I blogged I said how tired I was. Guess what? Today I'm ridiculously sleepy. I managed to keep my eyes open until 9:30 last night. At 12:30 I was wide awake. So wide awake that I laid there looking at the clock & tossing & turning for 2 hours. Finally, at 2:30 I got up & went in another room & read for awhile. I started to get sleepy so I just went to sleep on the sofa. I knew if I got up & went back to bed I'd be awake again. I figure I got about 5 hours of sleep. That may seem like plenty to some people but ideally I need double that. Always have & I doubt it's going to be changing anytime soon. Needless to say, I could lay my head down on my desk & be out in 2 seconds flat. I contribute my lack of sleep to Mucinex D. I'm still not well. I feel much better but my ears are still bothering me & I have sinus pain & pressure. I don't generally take this medicine  in the evenings because I've learned that it keeps me awake. I thought I took it early enough & that I was tired enough for it not to matter. Never doing that again. I called my Dr. this morning & he's calling me in another antibiotic & another z pack of steroids. Oh joy. Hopefully, this will work. We're leaving for the beach in 10 days & I need to be over this.

Last week Angie had pics on her blog & she had on a really cute cover up. She told me she got it at Walmart so off I went. I was excited to find one.
I love the way the bottom isn't cut straight across. The best part? $12 people!!!! I was also able to find a pair of swimsuit bottoms for $10. I didn't take a pic because they're just your basic black bottoms. I also wanted a new beach bag. I went to Royal Standard. They always have a bunch of different types. I had a hard time picking one out but I finally decided on this one.
Yeh, I know the pics aren't good. I was using my phone. It's easier. Anyway, the bag is a light aqua color & I bought a little yellow make up size bag to go with it. Very beachy I thought! Total cost was $23 with tax. I looked at Target Friday night & the ones they had were $20 & not nearly as cute I didn't think.

The Casey Anthony verdict was just announced. Not Guilty. Interesting. I haven't watched the case but I've read about it. Reminds me a lot of the debacle that was OJ's trial. I'll never be convinced he didn't do it.



  1. Sorry you're not feeling well.
    Cute cover up! Love the beach bag.

  2. Ugh... it's pasted all over my FB. I am tired of her already. And I concur about the OJ similarity.

    CUTE beachy stuff. I did see a cute purse (straw bag) from Target the other day. I shoulda went back to get it. It was only 12 bucks.

    Toodles to you too!

  3. Cute cover Traci, and oh those steroids, I am wired, and could eat the whole house when I take them!
    Umm, Casey? I have watched since the day Caylee was reported missing, and as far as I am concerned, they just set a child killer free! Anyhoo, have a great week, and hope you get to feeling better.

  4. Hope you feel better soon. The z pack works wonders for me. Love the cover up and bag!! Thanks for your visit and your kind comment. I know what you mean about the trials...

  5. Hope you feel better soon...I hear it's going around!

  6. Cute coverup and bag for sure. I had insomnia the other night, no fun for sure.

  7. I hate when I lay down and can't sleep. SO miserable!!

    That cover up is amazing! And so cheap!

  8. Yea it really sucks that she wasn't found guilty. However, she will have to answer to God one day.

  9. You've been sick for a quite a while, Traci. Hope you get rid of that bug soon. I know what you mean about the chocolate buffet. Yum! I was, still am, on a strict diet so I could not eat any dessert. I really missed out on that but I still had fun! Nice cover up!...Christine

  10. Oh, I have nights like that a lot - where I wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep - or I continue to just wake up every hour on the hour. I hope you're better soon and are able to get a good night's sleep.

    Your retail therapy is good, though!! Love your finds!

  11. Hope you are feeling better by now! Ear stuff is the worst of it all in my opinion and SO hard to get rid of!
