Days 11 to 16….Dang it!

Okay…so the challenge has officially been blown and I sort of want to cry!

I have spent the past 6 days doing my best to avoid computers…light…sound…life in general?

For those that don’t know, I have been fighting massive headaches/migraines for a while now. As of the last three to four months my ‘simple’ headaches have morphed into something that makes it hard for me to function. When my headaches hit my symptoms include: Nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light-sound-movement, shakes, stuttering when talking (not something I ususally do at all.) and memory issues.

Yep…I know, it’s time to hit a doctor up for some help!

I won’t be able to afford to see a doctor until February…so until then things are just up in the air. I’m not allowed to drive, which absolutely blows! I can’t do much on a computer because the light from the screen causing me extreme pain when my headaches hit (generally several times a day) which means I can’t work on either of my blogs or my book…

I’m just a whiny little thing huh?

Anyways…I suppose I just wanted to drop in and let you guys know what is going on with me and why the blog has sort of been put on hold. 

I will do my best to post every couple of days at least and Instagram photos are still coming in regularly 🙂 I do have to take care of Annaliese during the day…no matter how badly I feel.

Thanks for being so awesome and understanding!

Day 5…Super Heroes & Make-up

I’m pretty sure that all moms, at least those with girls, know the joy of make-up.

My oldest got a new set for Christmas…which I was totally okay with. It doesn’t bother me one bit for my girls to play with make-up, I simply make it a point to remind them that they look beautiful before they put a single bit of it on. I want to be sure that they don’t feel the need to cake it on as they get older…even though I’m sure they will go through that stage…most girls do.

Anyways….with that being said…

While I KNEW that the girls were playing with Emalee’s new make-up set while I worked on some sewing projects…

While I said “Sure honey…you guys can be superheroes. That sounds like a great idea!”

While I had ever intention of using kid friendly make-up wipes before bath time to make sure that they were clean… Continue reading “Day 5…Super Heroes & Make-up”
