I No Feel Well

Yeah. Been on my own for like, 10 days, and I get a humdinger of a cold minutes after the kids get home.
The pressure was building behind my eyes and in my jaw all day Sunday. My throat was scratchy and my eyeballs were itchy and here we are.
My head is on the verge of exploding.

Today was supposed to be Clint's first day of University and he was pretty excited. But it was a snow day and all classes were cancelled. He was disappointed.

It was Drew's first day back to school after a 2 week Christmas Break, and it WASN'T a snow day for him, so he too was disappointed.

Max was laid off from his job a week before Christmas and hasn't been called back yet, so he was home all day.

And I was home all day.
On the couch, under a blanket.
Moaning and breathing out of my mouth.
Reading this: It's the story of Carolyn Jessop; " I was born into a radical polygamist cult (FLDS). At eighteen, I became the fourth wife of a 54 year old man. I had eight children in 15 years ..."

Her story is horrific. My stomach is all bunched up just thinking about her life. The abuse, the brainwashing, the lies, the uckiness of it all. And it's still happening, here in North America.

She got herself and her kids out, obviously. But apparently there are upwards of 10,000 people still living in this cult. It is so wrong.

OK. That's all I can manage tonight. My head hurts.

Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Mark picked up Drew and took him to school today.

2. Clint bought some groceries this evening.

3. It has stopped snowing.
