Of migraines, lost pictures, of cabbages, and kings

“And why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.  Calloo!  Callay! Come join today, of cabbages and kings.”


Take a bow, thank you, thank you very much.


Well, I sit here.  I have about 3 different posts half written in my mind, but I can’t find the pictures that are rather necessary to explain them.  Why do I always think necessary has 2 c’s in it?  I do that almost every time.  It doesn’t.


I think my computer ate my pictures.  I had a  perfectly wonderful picture to explain our geography game, but it’s gone.  So, that will have to wait for next week.


Oh well.  I’m sitting here putting off going out to start school and cleaning for today because I’m waiting to see if the migraine medication kicks in.  As long as I keep my head perfectly still I won’t get the blinding pain in the side of my head, and I can’t keep it perfectly still if I’m interacting with kids.  They want me to look at them, and talk to them, and fill in something else that’s interacting.


So, they sit watching TV, as I sit here trying to keep perfectly still.  It’s not a good long term plan because soon Dinosaur Train will be done and the kids will want me to start a new one.


And they expect to be fed, oh well my time of sitting still is done I need to go “start the Dinosaur Train where the dinosaur gets stuck in the mud, and you can see who gets stuck Mommy?”  Yes that was all one sentence, and “Mommy I want a cheese sandwich, can you make me one?”


Maybe I can lay there and blink at them for a while.

  1. Ouch! I hope the meds will work. Dinosaur Train can count as school, can't it?

    Sorry! Truly sorry. If it helps at all – they will eventually grow up enough to feed themselves – they'll destroy the kitchen in the process, but they won't starve 🙂

  4. So sorry about your migrane. Sounds like this should be a sick day for mom. Let the movies roll and you lay on the couch and sleep. If you can.

  5. I don't know if it helps to know this or not, but we have all had days like this… and you all will get through it one way or another, without permanent damage. 🙂

  6. I hate migraines. Ugh. I hope it goes away soon.

  7. 🙁 Feel better soon!

  8. I yuck, hope you are feeling better.

    Dinosaur Train has fallen by the wayside in our family. Cat in the Hat is now where it's at. 🙂 My kids are currently watching TV while I blog, and I don't have the excuse of a migraine. Hope you feel better!

  10. Migraines are horrible. I hope you feel better soon!
