A bunch of randomness

The brain is not functioning on all cylinders right now. However, I wanted to share out some quick randomness that is floating around up there. Hope you enjoy. 

Random thoughts
– I wish that my Fitbit was tapped into my MS. That way it would understand that just running errands today hit my limit. Like a “spoonbit”, someone needs to invent this! And when you hit your limit it shocks you so that you know to go take a nap!

– The left side of my body has decided to revolt. Bastard! It feels like I have a full arm weighted sleeve on and the same on my left leg from knee down. 

– Today started out as an absolute nightmare. I woke up at 3:30am with an insane migraine. I stumbled to the kitchen and took an imitrex, then went back to bed. At 7am I decided it was time to give up on that working. I woke my boys up in the usual fashion. I’m such a lucky mom. I give them big hugs, even my ginormous 14 year old and a kiss on the cheek. To which they wrap their arms around me and tell me they love me. Again, so lucky! I tell them if they can be ready in 20 minutes I’ll take them to D&Ds for breakfast. Then I threw jeans on and stumbled to the living room couch after taking 2 excedrin. The boys were ready in 10 minutes. Shocker. The promise of donuts will do that. So I grab a large plastic cup, just in case I don’t make it, and we head out. D&Ds is thankfully really close to my house and set up more like a cafe. So we get our breakfast and settle into some comfy leather chairs. Conversation is always entertaining with my boys. We are doing a relay for life tonight and I was trying to convince them to wear tutus. They refused. 😦 even after I told them I found some in camouflage green. Sad times. They also said I wasn’t allowed to get one for their father. They ruin all of my fun. 😉 Then when I was dropping my little one off at his school the principal was in the car line with a sign that said “Folwell’s future is Bright! Flash your lights for a Bright future!” To which of course we all did. So all of these things turned my crappy morning around really fast. I am so grateful for that. It is always the little things. 🙂

Morning Mayhem

I need to wake up earlier so that I can go back to sleep after I shower.

The heat being on in this house is making it desertesc. Which is great for my bread, it lasts forever. But my sinuses are mad at me every morning. So I take a really hot shower with out the fan on (shush I know it’s bad) so that it is also like a steam shower. This makes my sinuses happy and my head stop hurting. Unfortunately it also makes the room start spinning. So I get out wrap myself in a bathrobe and stumble back upstairs to my room. At this point all I want to do is curl up in my bed and go back to sleep.

But then reality hits. The kids are running around the house playing swords or guns or whatever weapon that they have decided to turn their toys into. I have to stop that. Then they need clothes for school and breakfast and vitamins and don’t forget their lunches and snacks. Oh wait I almost forgot, Tyler has a spelling test I need to quiz him on for the umpteenth time, because watch I forget this one time and he fails.
Did I mention that I have 15 minutes to do this?

Oh crap, …..

I’m still in my bathrobe!
