I'm sick. It sucks. My whole head is full of mucus. So, I can't think straight to save my life. I'm edgy and agitated.
And it's Spring Break. And my kids are making. me. CRAZY!
They spent the night last night at my Mom's house and had a huge slumber party with all their cousins. I went home at 7:00 and went straight to bed. It was nice. I woke up this smorning (yeah, I said smorning) at 9:30. Just in time for the kids to walk in the door.
Now they're making my crazy again. They seem to think that they need attention and entertainment.
I guess that's because I told them they can't watch TV because my massive mi-brain headache can't handle the noise.
I think part of it is my stupid hormones. I'm so out of whack. I'm so tired all the time.
Last time I went to my check up, my doc said he wouldn't up my dose on my meds because I haven't gained enough weight and my blood test is normal. I guess he's a hard facts kind of guy.
Finally, yesterday C said, why don't you just call your doctor already? I know, I'm a walking zombie all the time.
It's because I'm scared. I don't know why. I guess it because I'm scared he'll say no, you can't have more of the goods. Because that's what he told me last time.
I've had this whole conversation in my head:
And I want to say, "Well, I haven't gained more weight because I exercise like crazy 6 days a week, and I'm training for a half marathon."
Then he'll say, "Well, you're probably tired because you're exercising so much."
And then I'll say, "No, you just don't get it. Exercising is the ONLY thing keeping me alive. It's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. If I didn't exercise, I would have NO energy."
And then I'll ask about my intense joint pain. And again, he'll blame it on the exercise. And again, I'll tell him that exercise is the only thing that makes my joints feel better, because the days that I don't exercise I can't get off the couch because I'm too tired and depressed and because my hips and knees are way too stiff.
At this point in the conversation, I'm hoping he'll say, "Yeah, you're right. You need a higher dosage. Here's your prescription."
Speaking of exercise, I have a whole "get up on my soap box and tell off the world" post about exercising going on in my brain. I just need to sit down and find the words.
Speaking of Spring break.....
I started out the week so good. On Monday, I cleaned my bathrooms. I KNOW! Are you as shocked and amazed as I am? Now, I can rest easy until July. Ahhhh.....
I also took the kids to the dollar theater on Monday. We saw the Tooth Fairy.
I love the Rock. He does a good job in all the Disney movies. Does he have a contract with Disney or something? Well anyway, I think KJ has a little crush on him. It's so cute.
Tuesday, we took the kids up to Park City to swim at my Mom's timeshare. It was totally blizzarding the whole day, and there was probably 3 feet of snow. It made for good pictures. Except I forgot my camera. So, I took a few pics with my phone, which I can't seem to get to upload on facebook. I must be doing something wrong, because I can never get my mobile uploads to work on facebook. But I digress.
It was freezing. So, we kept the little monkeys in the hot tub the whole time. This particular hotel has like 8 hot tubs. They are smart. But, KJ and TJ and uncle C and cousin P wanted to splash and swim so we banished them to the big cold pool. They lasted almost 20 minutes.
Wednesday, my sister drove into town from OK. We've been spending a lot of time hanging out at Grandma's and letting the kids play. It's precious when the cousins get together, and to see how much they love each other.
So, today, my plan is to do nothing. Absolutely nothing. So far, it hasn't panned out for me so well. Since I told the kids they can't watch TV, they need something else to do. So, we just finished two games of clue, and made cookies.
And it's only 12:30. Maybe I should let them watch TV......
