Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I really and truly have three days off! That is going to be lovely and luxurious and, I hope, thankful.
It won’t be as productive as I had fondly hoped because, the truth is, I’m on the fourteenth day of a headache, and I’m really drooping. Had to figure out a way to lounge as I type. I’ve gotten headaches all my life but I never conceived of a 14-day one.
On the good side, it’s not all that bad today, painwise. After the corticosteroid ran its six-day course, the neurologist gave me Indomethacin. Yesterday I took a Maxalt, and today it’s almost, almost gone. I did some stuff this morning and then took a nap. The nap actually made the headache stronger, but I feel too weak to keep going, so I’ll probably take another nap before long.
But the cool part is, I can work at my own pace, hang out, get some pictures put up, do some writing, write some reviews, take some naps, and there’s just no pressure, and it’s all okay.
Remember my goals for the month were first to finish moving in, and I’ve already made progress toward that today. I’m pretty much giving up on the NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words, but I DID work on my own goal of 15 minutes a day of writing, and I DID work on my own goal of doing some writing on my novel today. And last night I got a couple more reviews written, and I plan to get some more today.
So I’m thankful. For my home. For my job. For my time off. For my son who will share my meal with me. For my husband who provided me with great health care and who will give my son a great weekend. For good food and the ability to prepare it. For a cozy weekend and the wonderful opportunity to spend it working on the things I really want to do.
