On Tuesday, I had the worst Migraine I have had in years. David stayed home from work (since I could not even enter a room with light) and I asked him to call our health care provider to get me some Imitrex. He made the call and brought the phone in to me and the receptionist asked me from a scale of 1 - 10 how would I rate my headache. I hate this question. I remember them asking me this when I was in labor with Liam. I want to answer that I am in too much pain to answer a 1 - 10 scale question.
How do you rate pain? My freind Meagan told me that I probably have had 10 pain, but I think of 10 as the pain that occurs when someone is sawing my head in two with a chain saw. Is this scale for pain I have experienced or pain that is possible in the world. The problem is that whenever someone asks me this question, I am in too much pain to parse it out and ask for clarification.
The nurse observed that I have not sought out treatment for a headache in five years, so I think it would be safe to assume that it is the worse headache I have had in five years.
I am thankful that the headache started improving before I had to go get an Imitrex shot, since that involves projectile vomiting. I was in so much pain that I did not mind getting a shot or projectile vomiting. What number is that on the pain scale?
I woke up yesturday and my body was in SOOO much pain. I remember feeling the same way the day after Liam was born. I must tense up a lot when I am in extreeme pain. I guess I could call the nurse up and say that the intensity is close to labor pain. What number is that?
I took the diapers away from Liam yesturday. He cried and carried on for a while then just went in and sat on the toilet by himself and had a bowel movement. He is still "leaking" around the house, but he has a towel and wipes it up himself. Christian put up a much bigger fight when I took his diapers away. He held it for most of the day.
The boys have their check ups today and that is our only outing. I hope we have enough underwear to keep up with Liam.
Christian seems to have a case of the teenagers today. He told me that I needed to let Liam just go to the bathroom on his own and stay out of it this morning. I may not be a potty training "expert", but I bet I am a bit more knowledgeable than a five year old. He is in his room for a time out for hitting Liam and he stomped back and slammed the door when we sent him there.
I foolishly told Christian that he is getting shots today when I scheduled the appointment. I guess that shock and awe is the best approach for this age group. I don't think he will need booster shots as much from here on out.
Here are some recent layouts:
I did this layout for the It's Elementary, My Dear Scrapper at Elemental Scraps. In this challenge you get a free quickpage and then you need to tweak it and make it special. Rachel Martin was kind enough to provide the first quickpage. I also used In Mom's Washer by Little Miss Liz, Mere Whimsy by Stephanie Ogren, Felt Critters No. 1 & Stitched Alpha by Becki Kress
Issandra is one of the newest designers at Elemental Scraps and her designs are great. I chose Happy Kiss from her store. Check out all her designs, they are great.
I did this layout for the Twisted Template Challenge at 3scrapateers. Jill aka Pyralis Designs created a template and the challenge is to tweak the template. I used Childhood Dreams, Painted Summer, True Colors & Groovilicious by Pyralis Designs.
