Today just never came together . . . for the second morning in a row, I woke up at 5 am with a horrendous sinus headache. You know, the kind of headache that makes you consider whether life is worth living? It’s not a migraine – I’ve had those (and they suck at least equally). I growled at Mike who was up and happy and peppy and ready to start his day. I KNOW he was happy to talk to me. That poor man. Ultimately, I ended up taking a big gulp of Nyquil. The headache faded, but so did the prospects of us getting anything real done in the morning. Ultimately, I did get a LOT of laundry done and cleaned the bathrooms and did all that stoopid mom stuff that makes me want to get a lobotomy. So, at least that’s all out of the way.
To make up for our pathetic excuse of a day today, we’re going to the beach tomorrow. I made little pita breads and a variety of dips (using my NEW tupperware-type containers). I’m looking forward to the day. I’m currently “bookless” (as in I haven’t found anything that’s really grabbed my attention) so I am bringing an assortment of books, blank notebooks in case I get a great idea for the novel that’s going to make us rich, my knitting AND the camera. Something interesting is bound to happen -right?
For now, I’m getting ready to color my hair. If you pray – pray. If you are not of the praying persuasion, light something blondish (not gray-blond tweedish) on fire in your house. My hair is seriously making me mad. Of all the things I’ve ever had going for me, great hair was one of them. Until, ummm, the last six months. I do not even know how to begin to deal with the mess on top of my head. It’s not great – it’s not pretty – it’s kind of oogy. How did this happen? Should I even mention the eight-foot long old-man hair in my eyebrows this morning? What is THAT about? I’m wondering if I should save these scary hairs and make a prayer rug or something? Wahhhh . . . can’t someone get me committed? Nothing fancy, just a nice quiet place where I’m not listening to three sports at once and where everyone smells good?
Look for beach pictures and a better attitude tomorrow.
