Killing flies

January 21 Wow, this is the first day in I can’t remember how long, that I did not wake up with a bad headache. Sweet. I woke up about three to go to the bathroom and everything was okay at that point. Then again at five. I felt so good. I should have just stayed up, but I figured a little extra sleep might be a good thing, since I haven’t been getting much lately….

Pain & Nose Studs

January 20 Ow! I am so sick of waking up in pain! I woke up at two, which is an hour earlier than normal, and things were okay at that point. Then I awoke at six to a splitting headache- this time on the top of my head down to the neck. Shit. I stumbled to the bathroom in the twilight of dawn, did my business, ran really hot water over a washcloth and pressed…

Date Shakes & Swimsuits

January 19 Woke up yesterday and today at five am with headache and neck pain. I am so tired of this. It is making my life hell. Yesterday I was sick again. Not much came up, but it still sucked. At least today I am not puking. Just in a lot of pain. I took some Excedrin and had some French Vanilla Tea with Vanilla coconut milk creamer. Then just sat on the couch a…

A Puking Lesson

January 12 Wow, I am doing my morning pages two mornings in a row. What is wrong with me? It is 6 am. I woke up again at 5 and laid in bed a while. My thought was to do some visualization on my neck area. I was really sick yesterday from intense neck pain that morphed into a migraine. It was bad enough that I took half a dose of hydrocordone, which didn’t touch…

Leftover Bacon & Bunny Mobsters

January 10 It is still morning. I sat down a bit earlier to write, but as soon as I got settled onto my bed, computer on lap, Ella wandered in. She crawled up next to me, snuggled in and asked where her daddy was. He is shopping for food, I replied, wrapping my arm around her. She was hungry, wanted a bagel and cream cheese, toasted. We don’t have a toaster, so we got up…

Good Food, Nasty Coffee

January 7 Well, it is 9:15 and I am just now sitting down to write my morning pages. Jeesh. Just a tad late today. But that is okay, since it is still technically today and this is the seventh day in a row I am writing. A whole week. Wow. That is 3,500 words when I am done today. That is a lot. If I could do that on my books, I’d be doing pretty…

Open Your Soul

January 2 I woke up at five this morning with a headache, as usual. I’m learning to just ignore them a bit. I screwed around on Facebook and Groupon for an hour, then hubby got up to go to the bathroom. I held my breath until he went back to bed. I much prefer being alone when I write. Not sure why. It is just such a personal endeavor and I don’t want to chat…

Now, I’m Craving Chocolate

So my plans for arising early in the day just are not working out. I woke up about 9. I did stay up later than usual, due to J being on Skype with the boss of an animation project he is working on. My goal is to wake early, with no alarm. I’m getting the feeling it may take a while. Breakfast The morning smoothie had grapes again, power greens, water, juice and frozen mixed…

Are We In The Right Town?

I opened my eyes at about 8 am. Well, it was better than yesterday, but still an hour later than I had wanted to get up. I wondered why Phil hadn’t woken me and realized he was still sleeping too. Late morning for both of us. Had hazelnut coffee while going over the grocery list I made last night. I realized that I would not be home in time to make dinner, so Phil agreed…

The Dogs Ate Her Gum

In my dream I was linking my blog posts to my mind and it was starting to hurt. I woke with a start, head aching and stomach roiling. It was 3 am. Rolling creakily out of bed, I swallowed a pain pill and sat on the couch, waiting for the crushing waves in my head to subside. I focused on keeping the medicine from coming back up and eventually fell asleep, propped in a sitting…
