Plenty to say but not much time lately
I rode the new bike to work yesterday even though it was a bit chilly for it in the morning compared to what my LT can comfortably handle. After work I rode it to Morton's and that's when things got interesting. Nothing dramatic, just a bit of a comedy of errors. I'll probably write more about that when I have time.

I had a MAT session on Tuesday. You can read about it in my recovery journal. Generally favorable review, I just have to decide if it is beneficial enough to me in my current circumstances to spend that kind of money.

Sunday marked the sixth anniversary of bringing both of my dogs home. Hard to believe they are eight plus (Phoenix) and six (Buddy). I probably haven't been away much more than a month or two of nights since then. I get twitchy when I'm away for more than a couple days.

Sunday was also my trip to Jamestown with Stephanie. That *really* deserves a complete entry of it's own, but if you haven't been there within the last couple years and have an interest in archeology, it is amazing stuff. I can't believe the progress they've made since the current effort started in 1994. Today they have 25 full-time archaeologists plus volunteers. It has got to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest and most important dig in North America. The site itself is impressive and the Archaearium is incredible. It was cold, but that kept the crowds down. Again, I really need to write about it at length.

It is spring allergy time, and after taking the 24 hour Claritin-D horse pill last night, I have been awake and wired since 0330. I wanted to get to work extra early this morning anyway.

I do hope you get time to post on the Jamestown trip.

I used to be able to travel for 2 weeks at a time (didn't say I liked it..) but now, I have a hard time leaving even for a night. Twitchy is a good word.

I love Claritin-D, but it isn't for nighttime use....

Where was this information when I needed it? So, you think first thing in the morning is the time to take the horse pill size?

Dude, I have discussed, at length, the various effects of Claritin-D 24. Where have YOU been? So yes, first thing in the morning is your best bet to mitigate the side effects. Every time I take it, I don't want sleep, food, or sex. It is certainly a decent appetite suppressant, and Dara doesn't get too happy with that other effect....

I remember you having certain issues, but didn't remember anything along the lines of "Warning! Your eyes will slam open in the wee small hours and you won't be able to close them with a crow bar."

What about 12 hour non-D? I've got some of that as well.

It doesn't do anything for congestion, but it also doesn't keep you up all night.

Speaking of Jamestown...

Sounds like you might have spent the whole time over on the Island. At the Settlement, this weekend, they're doing Military Through the Ages. If you're up for running down there, the timeline is something like Vikings to Vietnam.

Unfortunately, it was only a day trip so I didn't get to the reenactment part. I really needed a few more hours to get through the NPS and APVA area.
