A PAIN IN MY HEAD AND A HELP WITH THE HOUSE
The rain finally came yesterday. For a little bit of the morning it was a downpour. But by afternoon it was mostly gone. I was glad because my yard was looking awfully brown.
Yesterday was not a good day for me. I woke up with a massive headache which turned into a migraine that lasted all day. I was up for about an hour before I gave in, took pain medication and went back to sleep. I slept for about five hours. When I woke up I felt better for about an hour then the headache came back. I took more medicine and went back to sleep. Around dinner time it finally went away. Maybe it was the barometric pressure?
I used to have headaches all the time. Bad ones. As far back as I can remember (read that as about 5 years old) I have had horrible headaches. Thank the Lord that has gone away. Now my headaches are few and far between. It has been a long time since I have had a headache as bad as the one I had yesterday.
Needless to say nothing got done. My "to do" list has just a few things crossed off of it. Mostly eat dinner, do dishes and get dressed. *sigh* I had such big plans too. Now I am a day behind.
So the great post I had planned to make for you fell by the wayside with everything else.
On the other hand, my kitchen is still looking good. I have had to move a few things that Jenn (my cleaner) had rearranged. She had put the hand soap and dish detergent toward the back of the counter and being short I couldn't reach it without being on my toes. And the trays she put on top of the microwave prevented the door from opening. But those are small things. And there are a couple of things I haven't found yet. Where's the cornstarch? And I think she threw out the scrap paper I was saving for the kids at church to draw on. But overall I am very happy.
I hired a cleaner two weeks ago because after a year and a half trying to clean up the house I finally got it through my head that I couldn't do it myself. I needed help. I hired this lady not only because she has cleaned out hoarding houses and estates, but because when I interviewed her (so glad I had experience in that from work), we hit it off. I could tell that I could work with her without us butting heads.
Jenn was here for four hours and cleaned and organized the entire kitchen except for one corner that she will do when she returns in three weeks. The best part about it is that now that it is clean I am able to keep it up with very little effort. It's now my favorite room in the house. I know that in a few months every room will be my favorite room in the house. Although it is costing me money, it is the best thing I could have done for myself.
So now I am going to get myself together and start a hopefully headache free day. There's a little one in my forehead that is trying to form but I'm hoping once I eat breakfast it will go away.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
