Migraine delays

This week I had Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday available for working on my writing. Monday I got up at 5:00 AM, had a shower, everything was going perfect, and then I got a migraine that knocked me out for the rest of the day. My migraines are nauseating affairs that start with blindness, followed by scintillating aura, and then pain and vomiting. Unpleasant. While I could keep it at bay in the afternoon with painkillers and gravol, on migraine days I can’t really use screens. On the plus side, it was a beautiful day and I went on a ninety minute hike with my family.

Today, I still had a pretty killer headache and wasn’t feeling very creative. While the kids were at school, the hubby and I finally gave in to their pleas for bunkbeds and combined their rooms, making one a bedroom and the other a playroom filled with books. They were very excited! My oldest said he was disappointed at first because his bookcase was no longer in his bedroom, but as the night wore on he was saying how excited he was to be able to sneak into the other room and play. He even emptied one of our bookshelf cubes to put his “most favorite of the favorites” books in there, so he could read them in the morning 🙂 I really want to make a secret hole in the closet in the bunkbed room that connects to this room so that they can feel like they’re sneaking in 🙂

In addition to this, I also ran four loads of laundry. As a person who puts off doing laundry as long as possible, I’m pretty pleased with this.
