I’m working on a three day headache…hoping I can set a personal record and keep it going for another four days! Whacky weather fluctuations always mess with my sinuses. Normally I’d take a few Advil, but this time I’m just saying NO. Speaking of saying no, there are a few other things I’m pulling out the stop sign on:
- Media – pull the plug on the Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Kardashian clan stories. Although I’ve not received an official medical diagnosis, I do believe part of my headache is a direct result of these *%^#@* gossip grabbers. Maybe you could just tweet this kind of drivel and let all the twitter bugs feast upon it.
- Tax man – my town is threatening to hike taxes by 320%….since I live in one of the highest taxed regions in the country, I’m thinking NO! When my headache decides to take a break I’m going to go out and shop for some industrial sized boxes. At the rate our economy is drowning, I need to plan for alternate housing. How big of a box would I need for four humans, two dogs, three frogs, and two snails? Think about that and get back to me.
- Food deprivation – I tried smart eating for a few hours yesterday. Guess what? It made my headache ten times worse. In light of that discovery I helped myself to a big ole piece of Grandma’s Coffee Cake this morning. I’m pulling out control tops for the dress I have to wear tomorrow night. What’s a little extra insulation around the tummy when you’re with friends?
- Clean windows – For now I’m saying let the dirt live on and prosper. I need to get on my roof (total height phobe, here) and clean our sky lights. Now the roof line in question is flat — so in theory — this is a feasible task. Every time I look up I see dirt speckled window panes. I’m starting to like the look…well, at least I’m telling my husband that.
Time for some more coffee cake. Maybe even a little nap….just kidding. (About the nap, the coffee cake is definitely a go).
