Zigzags in the eyes
So it was with much relief that the big pink elephant has diminished in size – it’s still there, but others on the team have started asking questions and taking responsibilities, which makes the elephant get smaller.
Sorry those of you who wanted to know what the elephant is – I can’t be too explicit because The Emperor has access to this blog. 😉
Yesterday I spent all day partaking in one of my favourite activities – reading. It’s just like Rebecca’s mother in Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm – if there’s a book I haven’t read in the house, housework and everything else tends to get ignored.
Unfortunately, late last night all that reading caught up with me. I was about to write another blog entry (that will no doubt come later instead) when all of a sudden, the dreaded zigzags appeared.
Those of you who know about Migraine Auras know exactly what I mean about the zigzags. The first time I saw the zigzags I was pregnant with my littlest, shortly after I read a book from cover to cover. Now it is nearly guaranteed that if I read for too long, the zigzags will appear.
I couldn’t resist the books though.
Fortunately, it *was* late at night when the zigzags appeared. I turned the computer off without writing my blog entry ( that one will come later), took some migraine painkillers and went to bed. Cuz there’s nothing better than a dark bedroom and a long sleep for a migraine. And I am much better today.
Now I just gotta train myself to take it slower with the books, so that the zigzags stay away!
