He should go out and teach English as a foreign language for a year. Go to a company where you just teach adults. I did that when I was 21. It is a really safe country and a great place to learn some life skills after your degree is over and before you go out and do something boring like normal work.

Thats a great idea!  He would probably love that and would be great at it, but he's only 14 so I get to keep him for a while longer.

If I'm doing a show in a place I've never been before, I can't sleep. It is called worrying about the unknown. I do it all the time but that is because I hate travel of any kind. I'm off to Japan next week and I can't wait to get there but travelling there yuk! I'm not afraid of flying or anything it is just the upheaval.

Nicholas will be sooooo jealous!  That's where he's always wanted to go.  He's even trying to learn to speak japanese.  Hope you have a great time!

Wish I could get some sleep.  I'm afraid it's not happening tonight.  Pain is too much and I'm out of pain pills.  Taken 1600 mg of ibuprofen since 9 and it's not helping at all.

I don't think so.  Vicodin is what I've been taking, but only when it's very very bad.  Unfortunately I'm out though and have no refills.

I want to say this is a stronger form of Vicodin It is way potent..... I had one in th hospital  Saturday when I was in.. it was really strong and he prescribed them over my others... I haven't taken them because I went in to have them fix the problem and stop throwing pain pills at it!!!  I hate pills!  I am sorry you are hurting too. is it any better today?
Norco is a Hydrocodone Tylenol mix.. 10mg Hydrocodone instead of 5mg. ( Vicodin) so its stronger in the Hydrocodone portion and the Tylenol is cut down from 500mg to 325 mg.They just call the upped version Norco.

No, it's not better today unfortunately.  I'm having a real bad time of it right now, but I think it's because it's been cold here the last few days.  I'm sure it'll be better soon.

Yes, I finally got some.  I managed about 8 hours 4 nights ago, then did pretty good the next night.  Last night I only got a few though.  I'm crossing my fingers that can tonight.  Nic and I are going to Georgia tomorrow after school and I don't want to have to drive while I'm sleepy.
