When it rains...

When it rains, it pours!

At our house, the following events or issues are challenging on their own - but, put them together, you get a cranky household!

1. Barometric Pressure Changes - ever since my head injury in 1990 I am totally impacted by changes in the barometric pressure. Ottawa is getting lots of spring thunder showers and it is reeking havoc on my head. I have a pressure headache with a migraine. It sucks!

2. Anderson has a slight fever, is irritable and started barfing...not fun!

3. Madigan is teething and not feeling very well. She is handling it all so well. NOT!

4. I am helping with the CNIB door-to-door canvassing...people keep calling after 8PM...I only wish they would listen to the messages I leave for them stating that I get up at 3AM for work, do not call after 8PM. Plus, come on people, you can drop the kits off at my house, do I really have to chase you down????

5. I still have not bought/made blackout blinds for our bedroom - the frigging sun stays up later than I should be staying up...makes it impossible for me to sleep...coupled with #1, I am averaging 3 - 5 hours sleep, if that...not good!

oh ya...this is a happy house...NOT!

On a happy note, a fellow blogger sent me an award...I will tell you all about it tomorrow!

I am so sorry you are having such a hard time. It sounds miserable. Migranes are the worst. I hope you feel better soon.

I've been meaning to get some blackout curtains for the boys' rooms. I can't stand that it is still light out at 9:00 and the boys can not fall asleep. Then, of course, they are up with the sun at 5:30. Ack!

Ick - feverish and teething children are never a good thing!
Hope things get better!

Hopefully everyone gets better soon so you can get some sleep and start feeling better too!!! Those blackout shades/curtains should help out a ton...I can't sleep unless it is dark dark dark.

Poor you! I truly hope you get some sleep, headache relief and healthy kids. I will be thinking of you.

Oh you poor woman...I hope the "rain" stops soon! Be well!

This sounds just like my week. I mean I could have wrote it..down to the fevers, teething, headaches and not sleeping at 9pm. Ugh...Next week has to be better, right??
