Playing hopscotch with my meds

Took an impromptu Adderall holiday yesterday. It's not been working as well of late, and I think it might be contributing to the perpetual state of dehydrated I've been feeling. While I felt a wee bit more hydrated--probably aided by the arrival of both the Coca Cola fairy and the bottled water fairy--I got just shy of absolutely nothing done. I also had two (BIG) cups of coffee and two Diet Cokes, which failed to perk me up but did make me queasy.

However, I did sleep better last night than I have in a while. How irritating. My meds don't work well enough to give me the boost I need to function like a human being, but do work well enough to throw off my sleep cycle. Lovely.

So, yah, back on the Adderall bandwagon today, although I'm shifting the time when I take it to see if that'll help.

At least yesterday wasn't an utter loss. fosteronfilm and I watched Love Actually last night by the fairy lights of our Christmas trees. That movie is fast becoming a favorite, new holiday tradition for us.

Agh! This story just does not want to be written! I stared at it for vasty gobs of hours yesterday and could only manage a couple paragraphs. Hoping that returning to the prescription-strength uppers will get the muse hopping once more.

Love Actually is one of our holiday favorites, too, can watch it over and over. Saw The Holiday on Friday night. IMHO, a must-see and there are even some writer-editor references, although not integral to the plot as in Stranger Than Fiction. If you need a lift, go see it.

Coolness. Thanks for the recommendation. fosteronfilm has been interested in seeing The Holiday too, but I've been dragging my feet. Maybe this weekend we'll make some time to bob over to the theater.
