coming to a screeching halt

the last two weeks have been intense.

well, actually, the last MONTH has been that way.

hectic, busy, frantic, insane – all of these words apply.

I’m ready for the merry-go-round to slow down a little  bit.

and apparently, so is my body.

I woke up this morning with no voice and a screaming headache – you know the kind? When you want to scream because it hurts so bad, but screaming would only make it worse?

Yeah, that’s what I had.


(and screaming is not very effective when you have no voice anyway)

So, I did the only thing I could do.

I listened to my body.

Well, after I got the kids off to school, that is.

I took some migraine medicine and rested on the sofa for a little while.

I’m feeling a little better now, but that headache is lingering back there just waiting for the opportunity to jump back up and take over my head.

So, today I will focus on doing what is NECESSARY – not on tackling every single thing on my to-do list.  Some of those things will just have to wait until tomorrow, or even the next day.

Right now, it’s about priorities.

    1. I don’t really have a choice. I feel like a wrung-out dishrag. I managed to do some email, get groceries (which was a critical need, we were out of everything) and get the kids. Now, I’m done. Thank goodness we are doing leftovers for dinner tonight.
