I received a Zzzquil VoxBox from Influenster yesterday. It contained on sample.

I sometimes have really horrible insomnia and this week has been one of my worst. It doesn’t help that I lost my eyecover. My brain doesn’t want to shut up. I figured it was worth a try so I took the sample last night.

On the card it says that it helps you fall asleep in less than 20 minutes. Nope my brain kept going for at least another hour. I got to be the unlucky person that it didn’t really work on :(. It did make me go to sleep though so hey that makes me happy!

I was also happy that when my kids needed me I was able to wake up and respond and help them even if I was drowsy. Now I would not have driven on it because I was definitely not drive safe. But helping a kid get a sip of water and back to bed or calm a nightmare and let the child sleep next to mom and dad I could do.

I slept for about 9 hours and woke up still exhausted. That was not a plus. When the kids took a nap I took one. Then I had a cup of coffee and I’m awake now.

I’m glad I tried it but I won’t be buying it. Just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t for someone else though so if you are wanting to try it I say go for it.

I received this sample free for an honest review.

One Nation, Indivisible

I really respect that people are talking out about this. The United States was not founded to be Christian, it was founded in one part to allow religious freedom and choice. As a country we’ve forgotten that.

Ah, July 4th.

One of the times of the year where it seems most everyone, no matter their day-to-day politics, becomes a staunch right-wing Republican with cries of “It’s “One Nation Under God” or get the fuck out!” all over social media.

There’s only one problem.

It’s not. At least, it was never supposed to be.

The Founding Fathers NEVER intended to have our nation to be perceived as a Christian nation- a theocracy, and they surely never wanted to  become so embattled with each other over spirituality.

“The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
