bed is calling

Today is one of those days where I feel like I could sleep forever. I was really hoping to ride out the relaxed state of the weekend. Apparently this is not happening. My neck is so tight right now, I am pretty sure I am getting ear infections in both ears (who gets ear infections when they are twenty seven, that would be me) and I have been hoarding a headache for the last twenty four hours. Really, bed is sounding better by the second.

Unfortunately life does not care if you feel this way and onward I must go. I have to say that I am getting rather fed up with this up and down behaviour. One minute I feel good and relatively positive and the next I am a ball of nerves, wreaking havoc on my previously calm state.

I do not believe that there is a quick, one size fits all, fix to this problem. For now I will have to apply several band aide solutions in hopes of keeping the tension at bay. I went for a massage last week and as luck would have it, my massage therapist had twin girls, lovely for her, not so lovely for me to hear about whilst in massage receiving mode. Would it be wrong to inquire pre-appointment whether the therapist has recently become a Mother? I am thinking that would not be the best idea. Perhaps an acupuncture appointment will provide some temporary relief. Child free acupuncturist.... check.

Wishing I could just be in here for the day, with all of the magazines of course!

  1. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Some days, you just need to take care of yourself. *hug* ... and thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. Wow, that does not sound restful to hear about the massage therapist's children. I have started to become numb to such conversation, but it still hurts. That bed looks like mighty comfy!

  4. Oh, I definitely have days where I just want to stay in bed. Lately more than before!

    How frustrating about hearing about the massage therapist kids. I always find that situation tough -- the "nice" girl in me wants to be polite and let her talk and ask questions. The stressed out, IFer in me wants to say to her "I'm sorry, I can't deal with this right now, could you please stop talking and let me relax." ICLW.

  5. New mothers are always a bit boring when they start banging on about their kids, unless you are one yourself - perhaps not very nice, but true! Hope your ears are better.

  6. I didn't want to get out of bed this morning either. My bed was so nice and warm. I hope you feel better. When I get a cold the fluid drains to my ears so I have gotten ear infections later in life as well.

  7. Thanks for your comment! Talking about her twins during your massage?? Are you kidding me??? REFUND! Love the idea of pre-screening future therapists for motherhood. Hope the neck and head are feeling better soon.

    Take care,
    lady pumpkin
