On Wednesday I left school/work with such a headache. I managed to stumble home and was in bed less than half an hour after kids climbed the bus steps. After a two hour nap, I felt like less of a monster and was able to manage dinner, the dishes, and a trip to the gym. But my siesta/late night workout left me wide awake until 2 am. Damn circadian rhythm.
By the time today rolled around I was just done with the week. I took the day off work more for a mental health day than anything. I slept for 13 hours last night and woke feeling more like myself. Today I spent some time on the couch then packed myself a lunch and headed to my favorite bookstore/coffee shop and did some letter writing, some book writing, and a lot of Pandora listening. Internet radio might be the best invention ever. It is the ultimate shuffled playlist that is always there when I forget to charge my iPod.
