This last week has been a bad one. First we received news that Will wouldn't be coming home with his unit. Then I got sick with stomach issues. I am still not sure if that was stress related or what. I just felt awful. This was compounded by a migraine due to barometric pressure changes, I felt that storm blow in before it actually made its way into the valley.
My girls are sad and mopey. I have been in a bad state of mind, depressed and unable to handle it. In fact I have spent most of the week buried deep in the mind of Sookie Stackhouse** while reading* the Southern Vampire Mysteries and barely able to surface long enough to feed my kids or drive Rhayn to school. Even now I am itching to get into the next book, thanks to a friend who lent me all of them. I haven't showered in a few days, or brushed my hair.
Now that not showering thing isn't completely because of the books, it is partially because of the migraine that I had yesterday. The day before we had taken the kids to the pool and when I got home, I took a bath, a hot soaking bath. (I know, it was 109 out that day, but I just turned down the a/c a little and escaped to Louisiana.)
The house, which was spotless last week, is slowly getting dirty. I am trying to stay on top of it, but losing myself in the vampire books has not lent itself to that task.
Today it is humid, it rained a lot last night. With the rain my headache went away. I woke up at about 1am, with no migraine pain and to the pitter patter of rain drops on the roof.
My girls seem to be in better spirits this morning. Well, after Gwennie got over her stuffy nose drama this morning. They are playing nicely and I am attempting to NOT pick up the book I have laying by my bed upstairs. I just want to get my bedroom picked up and a shower taken before I delve into the vampire world.
*I really like these books, they are quick easy reads. But some don't like them due to the writing style. Me? I am ok with it. I love the story and the characters. I can not wait to read them, and have a very hard time putting them down to do anything. But they are also easy to pick up and read for a chapter. I don't know if I would recommend them to everyone. They are bloody and each have a little sex in them. But for pure entertainment, I am loving them!
**Too many spoilers in that wikipedia entry, so don't read it if you want to read the books, m'kay?
