Errands are run. Coupons are clipped. Ken will grocery shop tomorrow. Once I get up, we will prep the meat we got for the freezer and hopefully prep stuff for breakfast and lunches next week.
A headache has settled in the last few days. At times, it is migraine level and at others it is just there. I’m hoping it will go away soon.
If the headache stays at bay tonight, I’m going to work on getting the edits in the last manuscript I have to do. Hopefully tomorrow after we get the chores done, I can work on publishing.
For my to do list for my vacation, I got most of my stuff done. I have a couple of items still on the list but this is how my to do lists go. I’m closing in on my last day off. Going back to work won’t be hard but at the same time I’ve enjoyed having the down time and getting writing projects done.
At this stage, I’m waiting on my scooter and hoping it arrives at the earliest date rather than the later. The week will be difficult when it comes to pain level while I use the manual wheelchair but I don’t have the option of not going to work.
Having said that, I’m going to put all of this behind me and try to focus on enjoying the last of my vacation and down time.
If you’ve read anything in my blog, you know I’m a list maker. I make to do lists all the time and work off them to keep myself on track. All week I’ve had a list I’m working off. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one who schedules every second. But I wrote up a general list of things I wanted to get done while I was on vacation.
Today is payday so I had a plan for my day. Yes an actual plan starting with getting up early and getting things done. That didn’t happen. It actually got off track yesterday when I got a migraine. I couldn’t sleep because of the migraine, so I ended up being up till 2 am. Not a problem – I’m on vacation.
This morning, I talked to one of my daughters early (6:30 – 7:00 ish). While I was talking to her I could feel the migraine coming back. I did what any reasonable person would do, I went back to sleep. However, this blew my timeframe out of the water. I wanted bills done early so I could work on publishing.
Here I am at noon and I’ve still not showered (good thing no one is here) or done any of my other morning routines. I do have bills paid, have dealt with all my personal emails, and have handled a call for assistance from my mom.
While my plan for the day is shot to hell, I’m still going to get stuff done. Showering is high on my priority, then I’ll see what other mischief I get up to. I have lots of publishing stuff to do but I may try to tackle it tomorrow. I’ll see how my mood goes once I’ve showered. I’ve got other things on my to do list to tackle like couponing, sorting through some clothes, and organizing some stuff.
Yesterday a migraine ripped through my head making me useless for the day. By evening my head was less miserable but still not great. I opted to watch movies while laying in the dark. It didn’t bother my head like trying to crochet or writing.
I watched Hitch and She’s the One. I haven’t seen Hitch in a while and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will Smith is always pleasant to look at and watch his skill at being silly and romantic. It made me laugh and relax. I thoroughly enjoyed.
Interestingly, I’ve not written anything in almost three days now. However, in my head one story keeps popping up and ideas fill my head when I wake up so I’m hoping when I reach a point where I am able to write without my head wanting to explode, I’ll be able to move forward quickly on the story.
At one point last night I woke up headache free but when I woke this morning, my head was slamming me again. Tylenol and caffeine will be my friends today.
