It Was. Then Again It Wasn’t

9 Jun

Today I woke up with a headache.Pain in purple and orange

Just one of those things. Did everything right before I went to bed, and still had one of my day killers.

An afternoon nap didn’t even touch it!  Grrr!

A dose of acetaminophen helped a bit.

I had such nice plans for the day. The men were scheduled to venture forth to procure dirt and mulch for the greenhouse, and I was going to use that alone time for creating one of my three covers for My Ignored Hamper and other Bathroom Poetry.

Needless to say I did not get started on a cover. (Duh. If I had I would still be standing on the roof screaming it to the world.)

I did, however, have a productive day, just at a nice slow pace so as not to have the top of my head explode.

Breakfast was cooked — sausage, eggs, and the guys each had half an ‘everything’ bagel.

The dishes were washed (Hubby stepped in at the end and took care of the pans. Yeah, he’s awesome like that.).

Tweets were Tweeted — and not just whining about my ouchy!

Comments on my blog were responded to, and others were left on other people’s interesting posts.

I made a yummy dinner, which also included ice cream for dessert! (My husband had the honor of scooping)

And now, I am getting around to writing this post before 11:30pm.

Wow. The scheduled tasks may have been sidelined, but this was not a wasted day. Yay!

I was going to write something else, but the brain is rebelling. So you get to finish it.

How did your Saturday go? Did you run around getting all the shopping done for the week? Or did you get to sit under the oak tree in your back yard and sip iced tea while reading?

    Wow! I’m really impressed. The most I accomplish on my true “pain days” is turning on the cartoons and telling my oldest daughter what to make for meals until Dad gets home.

      At least you have a ‘coping’ technique. 🙂
      I’ve learned to handle high amounts of pain from years of not being able to swallow pills. I can take them now, but even that doesn’t guarantee anything. :/

        Pain killers work okay for me for the most distracting, everyday pains, but there are a couple kinds of pain that don’t respond to them well. Blessedly and thankfully (as in “thank you, thank you, thank you Lord!!!), I am far less prone to really severe attacks than I was a year ago.

          I was very confused about my migraines for about a year. Started keeping track of them, and doing some research online. Turns out that what I call migraines are actually hypoglycemic headaches (although they fit all the symptoms of migraines, which is why I refer to them as such).
          They are brought on by my either dipping too low on blood sugar in the night, and sometimes by not eating enough calories the day before.
          Really the only thing that will make them go away (besides throwing up. Ick) is eating something high protein, taking a pain killer and going down for at least an hour long nap.
