The past couple days have not been my favourite. Around noon on Wednesday I started to feel a headache coming on. I just ignored it and continued work throughout the day. By that evening it was worse, and I was sweaty and nauseous, too. By that night I could barely do anything without being constantly aware of the pain. I went to sleep fully expecting it to be gone the next morning.
Wrong. My alarm went off at 5:45am and my pounding head and I got out of bed. I sat on a stool in the bathroom brushing my teeth, doing my hair, and all the while the pain started to travel around into my ear drum. By just after 6:00am I called in sick and crawled back into bed. Where I stayed. All. Day. Bored out of my mind and constantly in pain. Even in my dreams I had a headache. No fun.
I learned something through all this, though. I don’t know if I have what it takes to be a stay-at-home mom one day if I go out-of-my-mind crazy within half a day of being home alone. I don’t think kids count as “company” for their first few years 😉
