I have had a horrible headache almost all day. I hate headaches!

Anyway at one point today it was so bad I really couldn't see, couldn't stand, couldn't think. It just hurt so much. I put the kids all in their beds for naps, took some Advil and laid down with an ice pack. I literally did labor breathing to get through the pain. Nathan was crying in his crib, but I couldn't do anything about it.

The girls came out of their room and went downstairs and raided the pantry. They came into my room first and asked if they could have, xyz... honestly I did not care. They could have asked if they could go eat butter and handfuls of sugar and I would have said, "Fine just leave me alone."

Then they came into my bed and tried to make me feel better. Olivia brought me a HUGE glass of water and rested it on my back. "Isn't this relaxing?" She asked. I guess laying on my stomach with a glass of water balancing on my back seemed relaxing to her? Then she gave me a shoulder massage and told Abigail to rub my feet. It was really cute. And for a moment I could forget about the intense pain and appreciate the cuteness of the moment. But then the water spilled, and Olivia cried and Abigail screamed, and Nathan woke up and I contemplated violence.

But then by some miracle my headache went away. And I was able to cook dinner and enjoy it. And then have a little family night where we enjoyed a lesson about Sunday and ate... wait for it... ice cream Sundaes. And then as we were putting the kids to bed my headache is rearing it's ugly head again.

I really hope when I wake up it is GONE! I ran more than 4 miles this morning, probably closer to 5, and I want to run again in the morning... but if my head is hurting I am not sure I will be able to power through.

  1. Ugh, don't forget to get a blessing if they come back, Sister Opie! That is an adorable moment. That Olivia cracks me up, what a pip, that one. Glad to hear you're feeling better, headaches are the worst.
