What Do I Say?

I really have nothing, but I don't want to neglect the blog. Two nights in a row of being up for 3-4 hours straight in the middle of the night with a fussing K-man who would not be comforted have rendered me somewhat brain-dead.

I've been late to work the last two mornings thanks to not getting back to sleep until 4-5am.

Last night? I had a splitting headache that was making me nauseous, so I left a few minutes early and went home. Since I had about twenty minutes to spare, I went home and set the timer so I could go get the kids from daycare and then curled up in a fetal position under a blanket on the couch.

Apparently I missed the loud obnoxious ring of the timer. I woke up to the phone ringing. It was the daycare. Ten minutes past closing, they were trying to find out if I'd abandoned my kids or not. I hadn't. My head was still splitting, and I'm not sure it was worth the $10 late fee that I'm sure they're going to sock to me (although they haven't yet). It's the first time I've EVER been late to pick them up, so you'd think they'd give you at least ONCE. But she said when I left that we'd settle up on the late fee later. SHEESH.

And top it all off, I went to Sonic for lunch today and as I pulled up to the window and handed the chick my money to pay, she looked at me and said, "wow, you look REALLY TIRED!!!!!"

Sheeesh. Thanks. You know it's BAD when complete strangers comment on your look of extreme exhaustion. ROFL.

So....anyways. I'm going away now. The good news is my headache FINALLY went away just before lunch after I took two aleve when I got to work this morning. It only lasted for a day and a half. *rolling eyes*

I will survive....hey hey.....


  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - it's nice to meet you! I'm sorry about your day - I hate days like that. My only saving grace is that I don't have a workplace to report to - I can just curl up on the floor and let the kids crawl all over me when I feel like that!

  2. I'm so sorry you've been so tired. I would be more than happy to help you out. I still haven't heard from DSS on the "Be a Friend" but I'm going to call and see whats going on. In the mean time I wouldn't care in the least to come keep the kids for a couple hours. And I really mean I would not care at all! If you ask and I have something going than I'll let you know and we'll settle on a different date. But don't be afraid to ask because you think you'll be putting me out. I'm totally offering *grin*. Believe me, when the drive thru lady says you look "really tired" Something needs to be done! *LOL* I love ya!!

  3. What a hard couple of days. I hope you get some much needed sleep tonight. Headaches are NO FUN!

  4. Headaches that last for a day and a half are the pits. I have migraines that absolutely knock me on my keester. I had one just before Christmas - on a Friday morning - and The Mighty Hunter was out of town. I couldn't bear (bare?) the thought of getting Stinkerbell up and ready for school - not even for our neighbor to give her a ride, much less drive her myself. I called my mother's best friend and managed to sound semi-normal while asking if she was working that day. When she said no, I let out my pitiful voice and begged her to come over and sit with the kiddos while I slept it off with the help of medication.

    I'm very glad your headache is gone and really hope your little ones are better soon. It's so hard when they're sick. It just breaks the heart.

    Get some rest and think about asking your doctor if maybe you're having migraines. Headaches that don't respond to OTC medicines and linger that long are not typical. My migraines are indistinguishable from sinus headaches, etc - except that alleve, etc doesn't touch them.

    Sleep well.

  5. I am so with you on the headache girl! Let's crash together! zzzzzz Wait...can't sleep on the job! Sorry you aren't feeling well and hope you get that rest that you need. I know what you mean about complete stranges telling you that you look TIRED! I had gone grocery shopping before going into work one day, I had actually had 10 hours of sleep the night before, but felt like I had not slept a wink...was paying for my groceries...and the clerk was like, " look TIRED. You're probably getting ready to go home and go to bed." I was like "Um, no I'm getting ready to go into work". She was like "I am so sorry! I just assumed with your scrub outfit that you just got off from work!" *LOL* Thanks landy...but don't worry I'm not offended. :O)

  6. You have had a couple of yucky days. :( I'm a BIG baby when it comes to headaches. I can handle lots of stuff but not a throbbing headache! I hope you have a good Friday. :)

  7. Hey Faith! I miss you at SJ-- but glad I found your blog! There was a thread yesterday about SJers that we have met in person so I have been thinking about you. Looks like you have been quite busy (and have the right to be tired!) Take care and keep in touch!

  8. HEY! I realy like the *grin* thing I use it all the time on my blog!!

    Kelby not teresa!
