I have no idea why I am hurting so much. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary in the last few days - I did carry about 250 lbs of feed from the car, but that is a normal occurrence... It is true that I am not sleeping that well, but even that is not out of the ordinary. But, today, I just ache.
I am hoping I am not getting the illness my boys had a few weeks ago. I had to laugh, because my 13 year old never gets sick, and he mentioned that last night, "You know, Mom, I never got sick, so I just didn't even think that the really bad headaches I was having had to do with germs! I just couldn't understand what was happening. " He is of the "suck it up" variety when it comes to the school health room - unlike my 11 year old who visits frequently, I presume for the dramatic effect and sympathy? My 16 year old kept going to school, attending track practice - until his body had had enough and shut down for a week.
I have so much coming up this weekend; I can't afford to be sidelined. My sister is coming for the day (I think, haven't heard the final plans?); my son has a driving lesson and his regional track championship (although the illness killed his chances, he lost a lot of speed during that week and a half). I think my original due date for Minnie may be correct - which will bring her to Sunday-ish - you know how that goes. I have a great field trip scheduled to the goat dairy tomorrow: we're filming for a PBS student news show. No way I am going to miss that!
Oh shucks - I just remembered that I forgot the braided cheese bread for my 5th period class, AGAIN. I promised them I would bake them something yummy because they are going through state testing this week and next.... I need to write it on my hand tonight to remember in the morning.
