Ugh. I woke with a headache this morning and the thing has stuck with me all day long. It's a migraine but I don't have the horrid headaches that I used to have with them. These days the migraine manifests with a very mild headache but a general feeling of malaise, tension in my shoulders and neck, a bit of nausea, a desire for intense quiet (so you know my husband has been super chatty today) and a hypersensitivity to aromas. I nearly lost it over a bar of Zest soap. This shall pass, I know and if it's not done with by bedtime I'll drop some lavender oil on a soft cloth and breathe in deep.
Nevertheless, a plan for the week ahead must be tended to and rightly so. No one wants a free for all week in this house. Our stores of meat are getting very low and I need to use all my thinking powers to stretch what I have until I can get time and money together to visit the meat market. Groceries must be bought, bills paid, money saved. February will be a hard month for us. Car tags, property taxes and and four birthdays in 29 days. Yep.
