Alexander and me got something in common...

It has been a terrible horrible no good very bad day so so day. Yesterday around 4pm my head started pounding, which turned into a splitting headache by the evening. Then my back started to ache along with some serious tightness in my shoulders. By the end of the evening my whole body hurt. So, I skipped church, laid on the couch and quilted while watching a movie. Then I went to bed and hoped to wake up feeling all better.

The alarm went off at 6:45am and guess what? My head still hurt. So I called in at 7am and left a message for my boss and slept until 9am. I woke up feeling okay. Not great - but not nearly as bad as before.  I made it to work by 11am. So here I am at my desk with a mild headache and an extremely tired body. I am just trying to make it to 5pm ... 3 more hours.

It's Thursday - which means date night. I am so bummed. I want to feel GREAT for date night. Instead I feel blah. Date night might consist of ordering in and watching "White Christmas" ... we'll see. I hate headaches - they take it our of me like nothing else can.

On a much brighter and non whiney/complaining/self pitiful note: the December issue of Exemplify is out!! Click here to read the special double issue -- it's a great one if I do say so myself! When you get there don't forget to head on over to the Family Channel to read a great post about the Baby Jesus by my friend Amy! And join in Exemplify's Christmas Spectacular with freditor (friend/editor -stole that from Tracy!!) Kristen! She's the best!

**update: my boss just stopped by my desk and told me he thought I should go back home ... I wonder how terrible I look?? Oh well, I am just grateful to work for a sensitive man -- I'm headed home and back to bed! **

Feel better! I've been having that same headache since last night and writing a super personal post like this helped...hope it's helping you, too! Tonight's date night here too..love it!

I felt like that all last weekend. I never had a fever but just felt yucky, my head was pounding for days. We decided to name this illness: the adoption flu. I think it was stress, take some Advil and get some rest girl! Praying you feel better soon!

Kristin said...

Oh no....hope you're feeling better soon! I know what you mean about headaches. I have been getting them alot lately and I just cannot function with them. All I want to do is shut my eyes and take a nap and I surely don't have time for that! It's the worst feeling. So, I hope you get some rest and that you're feeling all better tomorrow!
