No More Salsa Before Bed!!!!!

I had a sinking moment last night and was still hungry when we got home from the meeting we had I ate some chips and salsa. What was I thinking??? I know I am not supposed to eat corn....but I was hungry...and I only had 15 chips...and counted the calories...but the cilantro and spices in that salsa did a major number on me. I had nightmares all night long. My first nightmare was my little sweet dachy Beau....turned into a rabid Pit Bull that would not let me off my bed...and I could not get to my parents to save them. I woke up in a sweat only to find Beau peacefully sleeping at the foot of my bed. Whew....back to sleep and on to nightmare number house was overtaken with snakes...they were everywhere. I tried to wake Frank up...but a giant anaconda was wrapped around him. Back to sleep and the worst of all the nightmares....I dreamed my dad was at my bedside...telling me he had to go....and asking me to take care of my mom. I woke up physically crying this time. I got up and went and checked on him...he was breathing easy and sound asleep. After nightmare number three....I gave it up for the night. Moral of this story....if you don't eat enough at dinner....don't eat salsa before going to easy rest will not be found. I may never eat salsa again...and before last night I loved the stuff. Curses on you salsa! Griefus....tonight I am eating oatmeal!

Ohmygosh honey!!! I'm sooooo sorry to hear about your nightmares! Goodness! I would have given up after #2. Next time hun, stick with a protein, ok??


If it's any consolation, I've been up since 4am today! And 4:30am the day before!!

Hi Karen!

How awful!! I've done the same type of thing in the past and been so sorry. The only thing I will eat before bedtime is a little cereal with milk. Seems to be filling without the hideous nightmares!

I had a nightmare like that about my Dad like that yrs ago, before cell phns. I was at a lake out-of-town and woke up at 5am. I had to drive to a little town about 30min away to call home to make sure Daddy was ok, which he was! It was those late night snacks that did it I'm sure!

Big hugs, Sherry
