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.

That's a HEAVY weight. As you get older (sorry for the news, but you will get older I'm afraid) you'll have to stop lifting heavy stuff - bad for your back. No wonder you're hurting.

I think they'll love your braided cheese bread, lucky them.

Grandpa, that was the total weight - I only carried 50 lbs at a time....

I hope you get some rest and fight off what ever germ maybe attacking you.
Mommy's don't get sick days :)

My mind now thinks that being up between 1:30 and 4:30 and then falling asleep, just to get woken up by the alarm 30 minutes later is how life is supposed to be. My body disagrees, so I guess I just have to wait for them to work it out. April-May is always kind of burn out month at work - so many extra things like Career Day, state testing, Prom, Graduation, fundraisers, etc. etc. I guess I will sleep in June.
