Not What I Had Planned...

My plan yesterday was to get up and take the boys on a bike ride and then after lunch and naps head out to run some errands and maybe go to the library. But that's not what happened.

What happened was that I dragged myself out of bed at 8:30, fixed James breakfast, and laid on the sofa until Will woke up and was ready to eat. After I fed him, I put him in the Pack 'N Play, turned on the Lion King, and laid back down with my arms over my face and ears so that I could only hear muffled sounds and so that I didn't see any light. At 9:30 I sent out a text to Eddie that said, "Help me...." At 10 I called him but he didn't answer. At 10:15 I texted him a "No, really. I need your help," text. He called me back and I told him I needed help now. I couldn't decide whether to cry or throw up.

Thankfully, not long after I talked to Eddie it was time for Will to take a nap. That made lounging a LOT easier. I can turn on something for James and mostly trust that he'll sit and watch but Will wasn't having it and the crying was making me ache. Once I put him down I laid face-down on the sofa until Eddie came home at noon.

It was an awesome day, folks. I felt grand. Was it a migraine? Something to do with the change of weather/pressure? Hormones still acting stupid after Will was born? All of the above? Who knows...

Eddie rescued me and took the afternoon off and I slept two more hours in my bed under the covers (after I finally ate lunch - chicken fingers and cheese toast - what kind of person eats that? Eddie said a 9-year-old). When I finally emerged I felt a LOT better. Today I feel fine so far - except that my hips and legs hurt. What in the world? The only thing I can think of is that maybe I was tensed up yesterday when I hurt so bad. After all the sleeping I still went to bed at my normal time. Crazy.

Whew! What a day! Hopefully we'll get those errands run today and then James is off to Grandmama and Granddaddy's for the weekend. He's running in Jog for Jake tomorrow so if you're there, look for him! He's SO excited!

Girl, I feel your pain. I went to my doctor, finally, after having headaches for 2 months, every.single.day. He seemed to think it was allergy related, but deep down I'm not so sure. Glad you feel better today!

I agree that it's probably allergy related. I've felt like that off and on for a few weeks; fall is by far my worst time of year.
