I was 100% out of commission on Tuesday. We had a busy weekend at the race track and I didn’t sleep well (I never do when we’re not home! WHyyyyyy). We got home late on Sunday but I felt ok. I worked 14 hours at my “real” job on Monday. Once again I was tired, but I felt alright, and went to bed as early as I could. Tuesday morning I woke up and knew I didn’t feel great, but thought I’d be ok after napping for a bit. Nope. After my nap a full on migraine hit. I’ll spare you the details, but when my headache gets that bad my stomach gets upset and it’s not very fun. Luke came home at lunchtime and worked from home, and I slept until 3 pm. I think I could have slept all day, but at least at that point my headache was better and I was able to stand up.
I had a huge to-do list for yesterday. Laundry, cleaning, blogging, finding & posting deals. My body had other ideas. I think I just did too much without enough rest and everything shut down. I’ve only had 3 or 4 major migraines in my life, and this was one of them. I’m super thankful it didn’t last longer, and that I was able to function a little by afternoon. However, it wasn’t fun.
I’m sharing all this not to make you feel sorry for me, but more just to say that it’s HARD when life throws you curveballs that you have no control over. Tuesday was rough. I feel like I just lost a day. Then the past couple days have been rough because the boys have had rougher attitudes since they got to watch a lot of TV on Tuesday and kinda eat what they wanted (granola bars… they would live on granola bars if I let them). Now there are rules again and that makes for some unpleasant attitude adjustments.
There was a bright spot in our rough day though. My dad stopped by in the evening after I was feeling better, and the boys asked me to build with them using our magnetic tiles. It was a lot of fun to just sit and build things together. I’ve been wanting to get some of the name brand sets for my boys like this really cool one from Picasso Tiles, but have been waiting for a sale. Right now we have 2 off brand sets, and we love them! They were $10 or less each when I purchased them and have been such a huge hit in our house! (Set 1 and Set 2 we own). I will definitely be getting more! If you haven’t tried them yet, I’d definitely recommend a $10-$15 starter set, (and then you’ll be hooked)!
I don’t have any exciting words of wisdom to end with, but I do want to encourage you today! Remember that it’s ok if your day doesn’t go your way. And if your house is a mess because you didn’t feel up to cleaning. And if your children watch a little too much TV. Haha!
Annnnnd… If you do need something to keep them busy other than the TV, I REALLY recommend grabbing some magnetic tiles. Follow my FB page Fun2Find Deals for more deals! I post deals on magnetic tiles and so much more!
