soooo sleeeepy...

A message I sent from my cell phone to Blogger about a week ago just showed up today. Way to go!

I'm at school. I'm early. I'm not in the mood to practice. I'm not in the mood to do anything. I think I have an iron deficiency. No, seriously. All I wanted to do this weekend was sleep. I got up on Saturday only because I was expecting a friend to stop by and pick something up. Otherwise, I would have stayed in bed. Sunday, I slept until noon. I got up and took a shower because I felt grungy. I started to knit a baby hat and had to get the calculator from my bedroom to do the cast-on math. I sat on my bed and suddenly felt so tired that a natural disaster wouldn't have moved me. I fell backward, feet still on the floor, and was asleep in minutes. This was 2:00ish. I slept until 4:00, had dinner, then went back to bed from 6:00 to 8:00. Got up, watched some TV, and was in bed by 10:30. I feel sleepy and listless today, but I need a paycheck so I'm all doped up on the coffee.

Must eat iron-rich foods. Peanut butter and jelly just isn't going to cut it. Any suggestions from my health conscious friends?

I didn't make the melon bad. My friend Tami did. I posted it last week, but this came from my phone to blogger--a week later. Like it came back from the grave....spoooky.

Dark-colored vegetables, especially leafy greens and beets. Molasses, especially blackstrap. Folic acid and vitamin C help your body absorb iron. And frankly, while I definitely encourage the dietary iron, I'd say get a supplement too.

google informs me that white wine aids in the absorption of iron.

so.....
