This little girly keeps me on my toes!
In a span of 2 minutes, she ran in the house when we got home, slammed the door in my face, jumped on a box and fell, grabbed my decaf coffee and drank it, and answered the phone that I wasn't going to answer!
oh and started talking to whoever was on the line!
I've had this blasted migraine that started last thursday, I had some stress last week and tues. night I tossed and turned till 1:30am thinking about the "meeting" I had on wed. morning.
Then I got ready for the event in Portland on Thursday. Well all last week I was dizzy and irritable, two things that tell me a migraine is on the way.
Except I was extra dizzy, I even almost blacked out sitting at the computer, thank goodness I was sitting.
Thursday at the event, there wasn't much good food choices and I had a sugary ice tea with high fructose corn syrup, which I am beginning to think causes headaches for me.
Ok lets shorten this, the migraine started thursday, I've taken 4 relpax, oodles of advil, sometimes these things work sometimes not.
Last night I took 3 advil and lo and behold it worked, I felt really good! This morning I woke up with pain again.
So I'm running a few errands and I start thinking.
When I am in this much pain, it really gets me down
& then I get depressed. I just want this pain to go away.
and then the kids will talk to much and I don't have a place in my head for all those words,
because my head is so filled with pain.
I wonder about all the people out there who live with chronic everyday pain. I know my pain doesn't compare to what some people live with.
So anyway getting depressed just makes me not want to do anything.
no happy mom.
Then if I walk by a mirror, I see how tired I am and how migraines make my face look sad.
And my sweet children are talking talking talking
They think I have it all together.
In my head I'm thinking , oh sweetie , don't you understand? I still feel like I'm 22!
I don't know what I'm doing with all you precious kids!
Or living on this farm, heck I can't even grow a flower!
Today I wandered into Borders to see if they had the new issue of
Where Women Create.
I saw a quilt magazine with a cute quilt made out of circles.
I looked up the instructions and it was like I was reading
what does that say? I don't know.
I know I can sew a Lollibag but instructions with a lot of words....
So I bought the latest In Touch magazine, where Kim Kardashian betrays her sisters.
So your probably wondering why is she out if she has a migraine?
Good question. My new curtains from Ikea let in more light than the last ones, so I awoke at 5am today.
That must not happen one more time.
So I went to Target to find a shade or something for the window.
I ended up getting room darkening curtains to put behind the Ikea curtains.
And then I thougt as long as I'm out I should get those curtain hooks from Pottery Barn.
I arrived at 9:48 and they didn't open till 10 so that is why I then wandered over to Borders.....
They don't carry my curtain rods anymore. So I'm not sure what I'll get.
And now it is time to put Sophie down for a nap. Sweet little Sophie. And while she is napping, is called:
THE GOLDEN HOUR AND A HALF.
It is the most coveted time of my day and today I feel like I must lay down too because of my head.
But then I will have wasted the golden hour and a half. I would love to be reading a good book.
or I would really enjoy finishing the Lollibag I've been working on.
Those are fun things, but really I have dishes in the sink and laundry and ironing to do.
OH or how about the shirt I'm working on with some cute Amy Butler fabric, I followed the patterns body measurements to obtain my size.
Which did sound big but I thought no, they must know their sizes! Well I got the shirt almost done and I am swimming in it. Even if it was maternity I would still be swimming in it!
So I have to rip it apart and cut in down and start over, ugh!
So anyway if anyone wants to saw off their head and switch with me, let me know.
