The One Where I Had A Headache

Yesterday I had a headache all day.  It was one of those that was there and noticable, but not bad enough to actually stop me.  I still did the dishes, I still played with the kids, I still played chauffeur to basketball practice and vhicle swaps between my husband and his parents.  But then it got a little worse.  I didn't make dinner and I let Andy put the girls to bed.  Then it got a lot worse.  I'm talking bright lights and loud noises crippled me, worse.  At 8:15 I had enough.  I crawled to bed, climbed in and was asleep in less than 5 minutes, according to the man. 

Migraines suck.  Thankfully, I don't get them often--maybe 2-3 a year.  But every time I get one, I am so thankful when I wake up the next morning and it's gone.  Or like this morning, when I woke up at 3:00 for Mikayla's coughing fit, 3:52 for her potty break and 4:46 because her stuffed Nemo was bit by a shark and she thought her followed her into her room.  Each of those times, the headache was gone.  And because I'd been to bed so early and crashed so hard, I don't feel tired this morning.  There was some Superior planning in that one, I suppose.  I'm just thankful that nights like that are rare around these parts.

It's Tuesday and Emily is asking us to unwrap something beautiful, unexpected or everyday that we're thankful for.

That must account for the strange dream! Headaches are not fun!

I can completely sympathize (as you read earlier!!). I'm so glad you were able to get rest last night, that's the biggest help!

Glad you're feeling better. Migraines are brutal.

Migraines can make life come to a halt. I'm glad you were able to get some good sleep and wake up pain free.
