In a Haze

Day 5 of Finals Migraine 2008...

Took the Shorties (2 of 'em) to Walmart- I figured I could run in this morning and just get it over with. BAD idea.

You know how a dog can smell fear... Kids can smell a headache. I think that sometimes people confuse the issue, thinking that kids CAUSED the brain pain... when in fact they are just the early warning system... they let you know its coming...

And THEN completely take advantage of the situation.

The volume increases, the "whiny" voices come out. They play up the "tired" symptoms to incredible levels. Like the usually mellow Miss Claire.... she gets snugly when she's tired. Unless I have a headache- then she wants to be held, then put down, than have a snack- but not THAT snack. She wants in the seat of the cart, in the basket of the cart, pushing the cart... running away from the cart...


How does the brain be running a zillion miles an hour, and me not be able to focus or understand any part of it?

2 lectures, and one final.... and this countdown continues...

What day is it?

Well, judging from the state of my 4 day old migraine... it is either br />1) MONDAY
2) almost time for a huge exam
3) almost the end of the quarter/ school term
or 4) I have 8 million and 3 things to deal with in the near future... all at the same approximate time in various locations.

If you consider that most days feel like a Monday... then all four seem to fit. Right in to the left side temple region of my highly pressurized head.

And coffee isn't even beginning to help~

The streak continues~

And by that I mean... the lack of my early morning walk.

OK- so I used the rain as my excuse to stay curled up in bed... and the fact that the kids did too- helped my cause. They are such enablers!

So, once again- there was a mad dash to the bus. This included threats, yelling (from me and from the short ones) random insults regarding hair dos and outfits (again, they went both ways.)

The highlight of the morning was the 3 year old screaming about being out of pants.

He made the trip to the bus stop in his jacket and Diego tighty-whiteys.

Yep. The streak continues~
