I'm SO glad that yesterday is over. And, I'm feeling much better today. I woke up with a HORRIBLE headache. Really, it was nasty. I didn't even drive my kids to school. I made them walk. It's only about a 5 minute walk, but I still felt bad. My head hurt so bad, I couldn't keep my eyes open, and I was puking every 20 minutes. What a way to start off the morning.
But, I made it through. I ate a few pieces of an orange so I could down some advil, set Jimmy up with the rest of the orange and some cartoon, puked a few times, then went back to bed for an hour. I was puking/sleeping/checking on Jimmy on and off till about noon. I ate a few saltine, and finally started feeling 1/2 way human again. My head still hurt, but at least I stopped puking.
I just laid and bed and watched some TV on my computer. I found if I laid still, I could watch tv and it didn't hurt my head (hehehehe). So, I watched the latest episodes of Lost, and then the first 4 episodes of The Bachelor. I just LOVE television. I know, it's not the best use of my time, and it's probably rotting my brain or something, but I just love it. Guilty pleasure, I guess. We all have one, eh?
By 2:30, I was starting to feel a bit better. Jimmy and I walked to pick up the big kids, and I swear, I almost didn't make it home. My head was pounding, and I needed to get out of the bright sun. When we got back home, I got the kids set up with activities and food, and came back upstairs to bed. Like I said, if I was lying in bed, I felt ok. But no sudden movements.
At 4:45, I went downstairs and quickly picked up the house. Since we don't have much here, it wasn't too hard. But, I got the dishes loaded in the dishwasher, swept the floor, and threw the toys in the kids' rooms. There was a girl in the ward (church congregation) who was bringing over dinner for us, and I didn't want her to think we lived in a pigpen - LOL!
It was SO nice to get dinner brought in. Sure, we don't have a fridge yet, and it makes cooking a little bit more tricky, but given the day I had, I was in no shape to cook. Thanks, Krista. You're AWESOME! I really appreciate it :)
She brought cornbread muffins, this super tasty chicken, rice, cheese, and cream cheesey dish, a salad, jello, and a HUGE chocolate chocolate cake. OMGosh! It was amazing. YUMMY. And, she let us borrow a HUGE folding table, big enough for us all to sit at to dinner. We were cramming around a dinky little card table, with 2 of us sitting on the floor previously. This was SO nice to all sit at the table and eat dinner.
After dinner, I was feeling MUCH better. My head no longer hurt, I just felt a little drained from the day. You know, lying in bed and watching TV can be such a DRAIN on a person - LOL!
I let the kids stay up and play video games till about 8:30/9:00, then put them to bed. I watched a few episodes of Life (NBC), designed this WordArt for you all, and am now gonna go to bed. While I'm not tired, my body is still recooperating for a painful day :) When we get a little bit more settled, I'm calling the Doctor and getting an appointment for some migrane medicine. I know if I had had some, it would have knocked out that headache much faster. I'm SO glad for drugs - hehehehe.
Oh yeah, and update on Captain America. He flew out to Columbus Ohio on Tuesday, and had to wait to rent the moving truck until the army money hit the bank. Now, I know us girls wouldn't have done it that way. I would have waited for the money to hit the bank, THEN flown out, but you know men. You can't tell 'em anything. Their way makes TOTAL sense to them at the time - hehehe. So, he hung out in Columbus until Thursday, when the money came in. He got the truck on Thursday, and loaded it all day Friday.
Apparently, we have more stuff than the biggest moving truck could hold, so Captain America loaded up what he could fit, and headed off to St. Louis. (He'll have to go back and get another smaller truck full of junk again sometime soon. Sigh.) His parents are now living there with Captain Americas younger brother and his wife. He's staying there for the night. Then, he'll be driving over the next several days till he gets home to El Paso. Hurry home, honey. We miss you here :)
This WordArt request comes from one of my CT, Diana. She is working on this ADORABLE layout, and wanted a "bear" wordart for it. Well, here ya go, girl! Hope you like it :) I just LOVE your layouts. You rock!
