Houston, I have a headache
I have a headache. It’s been the same headache off and on for about a week now.
I’m all done with my headache. It can die now.
I’m quite certain it’s not a tumor. I think. But maybe it is.
Yes I took stuff for it. A lot. Repeatedly. As often as the bottle allows.
I took my kids to the zoo. With a headache. It was hot and my oldest two are grounded from all electronics for the next 48 hours. It was good times. And Miss O let everyone in the vicinity know that she doesn’t want to walk. Ever. Her legs are broken.
The animals were cool.
Did I mention the headache? Oh, right. That’s the title.
We have three more weeks of summer vacation left. Despite the lack of success at the zoo, I’m quite content with that. I’m not ready to deal with all that school entails. I have decided to start out the year by making my kids take healthier lunches. I’m not sure what came over me, but it will be good for all of us. Miss K may go hungry, but it will be good for her. I think.
I have determined something quite important over the course of the summer: I can either have a clean house or time to write and blog, but not both. I am trying to decide which one will win. It’s a daily battle.
Does anyone else ever feel like no matter how hard they work, there are always a million things to do? I am guessing it is probably this way in the work world, but I don’t remember for sure. It seems like in the jobs I held, there was a point at which I was “done” for the day. Things were neatly wrapped up and tucked away and anything left could wait until tomorrow.
I’m never done. Ever. And sometimes, I get tired of never feeling “done” with work. I can pretend to be done. Like now. Right now, I am pretending that I am not two days behind on the laundry and I am ignoring the fact that the kitchen threw up this morning. I am also trying to figure out a way not to cook dinner.
And I have a headache. I think I mentioned that already.
So to recap:
1. I have a headache.
2. My kids are grounded.
3. My work is never done.
Yup. That sums it up. Houston, out.
