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. Popped up out of bed about 7. There was a bit of tension in my neck, but not much relatively speaking.
Two things were different last night. The first was I scheduled myself to work at my job from 7-9. I had a feeling that if I planned to work early, I probably wouldn’t make it. I had no problems missing my self imposed start time if it meant I was actually sleeping.
The main thing was I did not take my magnesium supplement. I noticed that the problem with the neck and headache was worse on the nights I took the melatonin sleep aid. And I have had trouble before with sleep aids, as I sleep too hard and I don’t think I move much, so I wake up with neck pain and a headache. That has happened a couple of times.
Magnesium acts as a bit of a muscle relaxer and it helps me get to sleep. My experiment last night was to not take the supplement. It is new brand, with a bit different formulation, so perhaps I am getting too much. Perhaps I need to dial down the dosage a bit, or take it every other day. We’ll see. I will just have to play with it. It just sucks to go to bed knowing you are going to wake up in pain. Wah, wah, wah.
Yesterday was pretty quiet. I worked in the morning at my job. Phil and Ella went to the pool a while. The weather here in Palm Springs is so sweet. Sunny, dry and warm. Not bad for the middle of January.
I’m still thinking about posting these pages. Not sure why anyone would want to read them. Just me bitching and moaning and whining about my life. Not that I have anything to complain about. My life is pretty damn good most of the time. I’ve been very blessed. Of course, I’ve worked my ass off for it in the past, as has my hubby. But still, we are pretty healthy, we have great kids. What more could a gal want?
Oh crap, there is a fly in here. I hate flies. They annoy the hell out of me. Oh look, my sweet guy is killing it for me. Well, more like terrorizing it. He keeps swinging at it against the window. Cripe. How many times can you miss? The poor thing is gonna die of a heart attack before it ever actually gets swatted. Holy crap, look how much dust is getting wafted up into the sunbeams. Yuck. Looks like we need to dust again. Crap. I hate flies.
