I am running late this week because I ended up with a horrendous migraine Friday night. Most of it had gone away by Saturday, but that hangover like feeling from the migraine lasted all day Saturday. So, I got way off schedule from what I normally like to do. I’ve noticed something about migraines, and you can laugh if you want but I swear it’s true. It seems like migraines know exactly when the worst time ever to strike is and that’s when they’ll come. Seriously. The last one I had—before the one this weekend—was when we were in Disney World with my son. Thankfully, that one hit at night so I could sleep it off for the most part. My mom gave me an article the other day that said giving yourself brain freeze, with ice cream for example, is supposed to help stop a migraine. I need to try that trick next time.
Terrible twos shmerible shmoos. My son is about to turn five and we still have the terrible twos going on around my house. Now, to be fair, he’s usually pretty good. Man, though, the last week or two has been awful with him. Demanding, temper tantrums, and not listening well only top the list. I’m not sure if it’s just me and it’s been a busy month, but I’ve struggled more this week with patience with him. I find myself walking away to breathe a little more often lately than I have before. Even with a master’s in child and adolescent development does not help this. I get why he’s doing what he’s doing, but the knowledge doesn’t help the fact he is driving me up the wall with some of this. I hope his attitude gets at least a little better soon.
I am so excited! I have tomatoes on my tomato plants! We planted four tomato plants in containers on the deck again this year. We did it last year but didn’t get any tomatoes out of the deal. I’m not sure what’s different this year, but I’ve already gotten like five or six little cherry tomatoes. There is a good dozen or so more getting ripe. Plus, there are about five big tomatoes growing. It makes me so happy to see them. Now I just need to figure out why the tomatoes worked this year when they didn’t last year. That way I can repeat what I did for next year.
