This past week I suffered another migraine. At least that’s what I think it was. The pain was so debilitating that it caused not only nausea but an inability to even open my eyes. The drapes remained closed and the room was as dark as possible to help ease the pain. I took some powerful prescription medicine to help ease said pain and nausea and that didn’t even help. I was in bed pretty much from 11:00 Thursday evening until 7:00 Saturday morning with only a few of trips to the bathroom. I even lost three pounds. But trust me, I don’t recommend this as a weight-loss program. All that to say, when I awoke from my slumber and walked into the rest of the house, I assumed a tornado came through and I slept through it. While the hubby was home manning the fort and keeping the children alive, I am pretty certain they were lost without me. There were a few cereal boxes on the counter but thankfully the milk was put back in the fridge. I am certain every toy my youngest son has was either on the stairs or in the living room. My oldest son’s lunchbox was still in his backpack with God only knows what inside. They must have played outside Friday night in their SCHOOL CLOTHES instead of coming in from school and changing to their PLAY CLOTHES because they were thrown into the laundry room soaking wet from the sprinklers. By 7:00 that evening, my neighbor asked the hubby if they’d eaten dinner and after his reply, she sent home their leftover pizza. (Thank God for neighbors.) Every utensil in my kitchen was dirty, there wasn’t a clean cup to be found, there were orange peels and band-aid wrappers strewn about the floor, legos were decorating the stairs, several pairs of shoes were not in their “shoe bins”, and last but certainly not least was a sippy cup on the floor with curdled milk in it. And I didn’t even go upstairs. But the most important thing was that my children, they were alive and appeared to be fairly happy. And my husband, he missed me terribly 🙂 So to all of you who wonder what we stay-at-home moms do all day, now you know. I am a stay-at-home mom. And I rock.
