headaches again

Some days I wonder why I even get up. The day was going fine, for us I suppose. Bored out of my mind and Isabelle feeling well antsy, we went to barnes and nobles. I was very happy with how she listened to me, no arguments or meltdowns. There were many people there and she lisened very well. She played with a few kids, shared nicely and when I said let's go, she said bye and we went. I don't think Barnes and Nobles has a very big selection really. The last few days I was dying to go there by myself and buy a cup of coffee and lose myself in a book. But it never seems to happen. Then my headache started and now it's about a 6 on the pain scale, with nausea and I should go lay down with ice and get some sleep. But I really don't want to sleep. I don't want to deal with tomorrow and work. The worst part is i finished reading my book, only good thing is there are 3 more sequals after, but I have to find which library the next book is and rent it.
I guess I better stop my whining and jsut go to bed, although with darrell, aaron and isabelle all making noise in the livingroom, I don't know if I'll even fall asleep.

Headaches and more

Well the past few days I have been sick, then a massive headache stopped me in my tracks. I didn't do school for 2 days. I feel terrible that nothing is getting accomplished. My neck was so tight, my hubby had to massage it for a while, just to help loosen up the muscles. Of course during the night it got worse, and I had a terrible nightmare on top of it. This morning I found out out paychecks were in our account a day early (b/c of the holiday) And I called my Chiropracter for an appointment. I then went back to bed, b/c I seriously thought I was going to vomit (sorry if TMI) I made my way to the chiro, got adjusted and felt a bit better. We had lunch and even though my head still hurt, I kept going. I need to return library items, go grocery shopping (which I didn't even make a list, b/c of how I felt before) And went to 2 stores, Food lion and sams club. I had to buy enough food for 2 weeks and I think I did it, or close enough. By the time I got home, Darrell was home not feeling good ( He had a massive sinus headache and went to bed) I got the groceries put away and went straight to work. I think I will go to bed early and hopefully feel better in the Am. Oh and we cancelled Netflix today and blockbuster ( a monthly payment and we could rent whatever for as long as we wanted) And with the two of those gone, we can get an hd box from timewarner. So we decided to do it.

new channels

Started 2 other blog channels, one for my adventures in "Schooling at Home". On days I am frustrated and need to vent, or those day when I am happy to teach. I will post there. And my other new channel "Creative Me" is where I post short stories or whatever I have created and put in word form. I am excited about both of them.

Book writing

I started writing a book, just to remain creative. I have started writing stories in the past and never got far. I know I have a creative mind, but sometimes I read what I wrote and it sounds so stupid and simple minded. I remember alot of the rules from English class, but we never had a writing class in my school. I suppose if I wanted I could take a writing class at a local collage, but that costs so much $. I need to expand my vocabulary, so I'm going to spend time having word of the day and learning the definitions. I also need to work on describing the scenes. What does the room look like, what does the character see. So I paint the picture I see in my head. That's probably the hardest thing. I've very good at making story lines and background. Even the personality of the character comes easy for me.
So far I have an into on this story. I have a beginning and each chapter has a point to make. I was told to draw out the house and the room layouts, so I can describe them. I can see what each character looks like. But sometimes I feel like if people read the story, they will think of it as amateur and yes this is her first time writing, but you can see that. I don't want that at all. I know once I finish writing the story and edit it, I'm sure I will feel more confident, but bad comments will really bring me crumbling down. Which will make me think if I even want to publish this work. But for now since that is so far in the future, I'm just going to focus on getting the story out and have fun making scenes.
