Me, Myself, and the Voices in My Head

A place to ramble and maybe make some sense about a thing or two.

Missed yesterday

Yes, the streak has been broken.  I did not post anything yesterday.  My head decided that a migraine would be much more fun than being able to spend time with my family and kept me in bed all day.  Since I don’t type well (or coherently) when my head is screaming at me, I took the day to rest.

I’m not proud or anything like that.  Actually, it’s been driving me crazy that I didn’t post.  But, I decided to do something for myself and try to get better.

Would have worked, too, if a large weather front hadn’t moved into our area and dumped a big storm on us.  My poor American flag that hangs on the front of the house was targeted by the wild winds and shoved to the ground before I could get to it.  Fortunately, Youngest Son went out during a lull in the wind and rain and retrieved it for me.  Now I’ve gotta fix (or replace) the bracket on the front of the house.  And my poor flowers that I planted earlier this spring but could never remember what they were until they bloomed and I sent pictures to friends have been beaten-down as well.  No major storm damages here.  Not even minor storm damages here.  But we’ll just say that flags, flowers, shovels, rakes, and other items left in the yard were fair game for the wind and bits of hail.

And my headache is back again.  I saw a thing today that said the “migraine rating” was going to be low.  Not sure how they figure that but it’s obviously not getting feeds from my head.  Time for more ice and a nice nap (as if I need another). *sigh*



Best of all he (Odin) liked to sleep.  Sleeping was a very important activity for him.  He liked to sleep for longish periods, great swathes of time.  Merely sleeping overnight was not taking the business seriously.  He enjoyed a good night’s sleep and wouldn’t miss one for the world, but found it as anything halfway near enough.  He liked to be asleep by half-past eleven in the morning if possible, and if that should come directly after a nice leisurely lie-in then so much the better.  A little light breakfast and a quick trip to the bathroom while fresh linen was applied to his bed is really all the activity he liked to undertake, and he took care that it didn’t jaunt the sleepiness out of him and disturb his afternoon of napping.  Sometimes he was able to spend an entire week asleep, and this he regarded as a good snooze.  He had also slept through the whole of 1986 and hadn’t missed it.  – Douglas Adams, The Long, Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

It’s a long weekend and I’ve enjoyed quite a nice, long nap today.  I have to sincerely thank Husband and Youngest Son for allowing me to sleep-in this morning.  Well, when I say “sleep-in” I mean that I did get up at my usual time to take my medications and let the dogs go outside for “walkies.”  But, while they went to yard sales I was allowed to crawl back into bed and sleep away a lot of the stresses from this past week.  I don’t usually do that, but today it was imperative that I do so.  Plus, weird dreams when I’m stressed-out happen and if only I could have filmed it.  I would have made a great B-movie (or even worse).

Busy! No time! Got to hurry!

Sorry y’all but I’m really busy today.  Have eBay auctions that are ending, ones that have ended and paid for that have to be packed for shipping tomorrow, and I’ve finally heard from the EEO officer and have paperwork to read and sign for him.

Plus I’ve not been able to get all of my playing with the dogs, television watching, napping, and all-around laying-about done today.  Guess I’ll do that tonight.  Maybe.  Or I might just brave the couch and see if it causes me to pass-out like it does the guys.

Gotta be ready for tomorrow — Youngest Son has his last junior high dance that night.  He swears he’s not asked anyone to go with him but I think he’ll find someone or at least hang-out with “the gang” while he’s there.

Migraine sucks

I’ve been battling a migraine all day.  Just woke up from a nap and realized that I only had 3 hours left to get something posted for today.

This is it.  It’s not much but it’s a post.

Thank you for your support.

Snow Day!!!

It’s the first snow day of the year, so I’m taking the day off.  Youngest Son is out of school.  Husband listened to the scanners and watched the news this morning and saw all of the accidents occurring on his route to work, so he wisely decided to stay  home.  The dogs have frolicked briefly in the snow and don’t care for the bitter cold.  The cat won’t go near anything that looks like it’s got snow on it.  It’s still snowing and the continued forecast says it’s supposed to start sleeting soon.  We’ve cancelled our play’s rehearsal for the evening, too.

The rest of my schedule is nap, fix dinner, watch the Westminster Dog Show, and possibly nap more before going to bed.  And get this post published.  We still have Internet and electricity, so I’ve got to post something!

Day 9: No post for you!

Geez….only 9 days into this thing and I’m stuck again.  Well, actually not stuck — my “voices” have decided to start arguing at night when I’m trying to go to sleep.  Each one brings up an idea for something great to write about or something that I should probably get off my chest.  Then I have the reminder “voices” that pester me about things I need to or should be doing instead of writing.  They don’t realize that they’re wrong, actually, because I should be writing since this is what’s supposed to be helping me feel better.  However, I’ve learned not to argue with them too much because they’re the ones that flip a manic day into a depressive one in a nanosecond and then I spend the rest of the day/week trying to explain to Husband and Youngest Son that it’s in no way their fault that I’m in the funk that doesn’t let me do much.

So, I’m not going to sit and try to really work-up something awesome.  I’ve been enjoying that my posts have been becoming more and more popular recently.  But there are things that need to be done and things I want to do as well as a lot of stuff I don’t need to do but I’m going to anyway.  Like taking a nap, or playing a videogame other than from the Lego series.  Or taking a nap because I’m not getting to sleep at night with the “voices” arguing until the wee hours of the morning.  Maybe I’ll take a nap just because I can.  Who’d have thought when I was a kid and hated having to take them that naps would become a favorite pastime of mine??

Oh, and tonight is the first night of auditions for our local community theatre’s upcoming production.  There will be a few posts, I’m sure, after the auditions are over and the rehearsals begin.  Always good material when you’re getting ready for a show!

So, short story long, there’s nothing to see here.  Clear off!  Go read some of the other posts I’ve written that you’ve not perused yet!  My brain and I are off for a bit of rest.
