I woke up this morning with a massive headache...complete with nausea and distorted vision. Somehow, I managed to get the kids off to school without dying in the process (why yes, I am super Mom), then took four ibuprofen and went back to bed. I woke up a couple of times because the phone rang but basically slept until noon. Upon waking, I immediately felt guilty thinking about how I had wasted half the day (yes I realize how ridiculous this is).

So, even though I could have stayed in bed for hours longer, I got up, ate something and attempted to tackle the to do list. This was met with little success (although if I had put, "clear the DVR out and watch hours of tv" I could have crossed that off). The headache lingered (though it was less severe) for most of the afternoon. As the day progressed I felt better and managed to cook a delicious dinner for the family (meatloaf, mashed potatoes and carrots...total comfort food for a blah, yucky day).

I am still not feeling quite right but markedly better in comparison. And yes, I am still annoyed by how much time was wasted while I slept the day away. Sometimes? I really need to chill the heck out when in comes to the to do list.

Sounds like your body was telling you it needed to rest and recuperate. You are allowed to take care of you! I hope you feel better!
