Zzzquil Review

Today I am reviewing ZzzQuil Nightime Sleep-Aid. First of all I want to let you know I received this product for free from Influenster. Even though the product was free, the opinions are my own. The product I am reviewing contains 25 mg of Diphenhydramine HCI and comes in LiquiCaps form. This product is non-habit forming. You would use this product for the relief of occasional sleeplessness and to reduce time to fall asleep if you have difficulty doing so. Do not use if you have emphysema or chronic bronchitis, glaucoma or difficulty in urination due to enlargement of the prostrate gland. Avoid alcoholic beverages, sedatives and tranquilizers while using this product. Consult a doctor if sleeplessness persists continuously for more than 2 weeks. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. Keep out of reach of children. In case of an overdose, contact a poison control center or get medical help right away. Dosage is 2 LiquiCaps for adults and children 12 years of age and older. Take o my one dose per 24 hours. 


I hate my ex husband 

I know that hate is a strong word and I use to say I never hated anyone, but after today I really do hate my ex husband. My daughter is getting married in less than three months. He informed me that because he’s been out of a job and has sat on his ass the last nine months that he will not be paying for half of the wedding, sticking me with a $7000 wedding bill. He also informed me today that he will not be paying this week’s child support because he only has $67 in the bank. Geez, I wonder why? If I sat on my ass the last nine months and drew no income, I would have been broke a long time ago. But somehow through all of this, he still managed to pay a house payment, utilities, two vehicle payments and two iPhone payments. Are there any good men left in this world? Sometimes I don’t think so. If there are they are few and far between and I haven’t ran into one in a very long time.  


What can you eat for 500 calories? 

500 calories doesn’t seem like a lot. When you’re dieting and counting calories, you want to eat the full potential of those calories. This is my lunch that I had today. I know it may be high in sodium and preservatives, but it was 500 calories exactly and took under eight minutes to prepare.  

What we have here is 1/2 cup of canned pinto beans. Two minutes to cook in the microwave and 90 calories. I added 1/2 cup of canned mustard greens which came in at a whopping 10 calories and took three minutes microwave cooking time. The mashed potatoes are a single serving cup from Betty Crocker. They contained 160 calories and took 2 minutes and 15 seconds into cook in the microwave. The last item on my plate is a Hormel Compleats bowl. It is chicken and dressing and included gravy that I drizzled on my mashed potatoes. It took 90 seconds to cook also in the microwave. It had 240 calories. The whole meal contained six grams of fat. Four grams from the chicken and dressing and two grams from the potatoes. There was no fat in the pintos or greens.

I still struggle wanting to eat sweets and Mexican food, but at least I have more on my plate now than rabbit food! 

Social Media Bragging 

You know what really burns me up? People who constantly brag on Facebook. My husband bought me this, I went there, I did this and so on and so forth. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that these people are only fishing for attention. I mean come on, why else would you post? We all have those friends. I guess they can’t see that it looks like a desperate plea for attention. So please, live your life and quit Facebook bragging! We don’t want to see it! 

My husband the drama queen 

It’s Saturday morning. I’ve been awake for maybe an hour. My husband is off work today. Already he is driving me crazy. He forgot to kiss me good morning when I got up, he is in the bathroom banging things around, and he said he just nearly cut his finger off. Just now he comes into the living room asking me to help him put a bandage on his hand. I asked to see the cut but he refused. He said the tool he was using had a dull blade or he would be on his way to the emergency room. Can you say drama queen? This is a man who didn’t take me to the hospital when I thought I was having a heart attack because be said it was just anxiety. Hello? Are you a doctor? But he himself went when he got a fishing hook stuck in his finger! Rewind to yesterday. I was off work, he wasn’t. The house was so quite and relaxing. Not today. I get up to the tv blaring, him putting a wheelbarrow together and now him scraping up old flooring in the bathroom to put new down. I do believe the only reason he is working on the bathroom floor is because he wants to somewhere tonight that he knows I don’t want to go. He is just trying to score points. I really do love him, but he is driving me insane! Does anyone else feel like this or am I alone in a world where I thought women were the dramatic ones? 

Delilah the Doxie 

Folks what we have here is my adorable, ornery dachshund Delilah. She came into my life 4 short years ago, via my sister, Miranda. She came over to stay with me when my sister went on vacation, but she decided to stay with me when my sister came back home. We shared custody for a while, but Delilah finally relinquished my sister’s visitation rights, and I have been her one and only Mum ever since.  Isn’t she beautiful?  

Wedding Shower Woes…

So, my daughter is getting married in June. Myself, along with two of my sisters, my niece, and a close friend of my daughter’s, are throwing her a bridal shower. She has decided she wants the theme to be blue and white seersucker. Appropriately enough for the southern belle she is. Trouble is, I can’t find anything seersucker. And truth be known, I am not that crafty. So if any of you guys have been in my shoes or just want to throw out suggestions, I’d be happy to hear what you have to say. Cheerio!
