Have you ever felt pain so bad that you felt like you might throw up? When will this all work it’s way out of my system?
It was exactly a week ago Saturday that I woke up hurting all over. The next day, either side of the base of my skull felt bruised to the touch. Slowly, all week, that has been working it’s way down my neck, and is now settled across my shoulders and shooting pain down my right arm. It aches deep inside. This is so frustrating! Tonight, I have another headache. I wonder if this is the kind of pain people with fibromyalgia deal with all the time. It’s downright depressing because I want to do everything I would normally do, but I can’t. I’m taking 600 mg of ibuprofen at a time just so I can function.
My hair dryer fried this morning. In the middle of drying my hair, it shorted out and died.
I did manage to get out today and get Miranda new shoes for school. One can only live in flip-flops for so long, and those summer days are rapidly approaching their end here in Colorado. Of course, I couldn’t resist the cutest pair of flats for myself – a steal at $2.99 at Payless! I am so glad leggings and longer, flowy tops are coming back. Finally, I can be comfortable again.
Greg has to work nights this week and will be crashing in Jason’s room in the basement during the day. I’m facing some overtime this week. Some glitch happened that prevented a few hundred email from uploading the week before last, and we have some catching up to do. Being on vacation last week was actually a blessing. I wouldn’t have been able to work overtime anyway. It sucks that I had to spend my vacation recuperating from that allergic reaction, but at least I was able to rest.
My weekends for the next few weeks are busy as usual. Next weekend I have a photo shoot for one of the SCTC groups. That will be on location in an urban setting. The following weekend I want to take the girls somewhere to take their portraits to match the boys’. The next weekend is my scheduled Saturday to work. The weekend after that I’m singing with a new worship team!
Yep! I decided it was time to get back into the music ministry. I won’t be singing with my old team, though. To do that, I would need to also sing on another team. I can’t do two teams. It’s just too much. In October and November, my team is scheduled to sing the same weekends I’m scheduled to work. When I work on a Saturday, I only work until 2:00, and rehearsal starts at 3:00. I actually prefer to sing the same weekend I work.
School starts tomorrow! I should get to bed so I can get up early enough to make sure all THREE high schoolers are up on time! Miranda doesn’t have to wake up until an hour after them.
