I woke up with a headache, this morning. I think it was a sinus pressure headache. My sinuses have been bothering me, recently. I shall bring it up when I meet with the doctor, next week. It also felt like an eye ache, as well, and I wondered if I had an eye strain, due to staring at the computer screen most of the day. All the office work I do is on the computer and, in between, I read blogs, etc. I took a Tylenol, but the headache/eye ache lingered; I probably should have taken two Tylenols.
Still, I pushed through and completed my work assignment for today. Then, I called my supervisor and discussed things with her and arranged to take a couple of days off. In the afternoon, I retreated to the bedroom, put the air conditioner on, and rested with my eyes closed for an hour. I didn't fall asleep, but the rest helped. I also thought that I might be dehydrated and made it a point to drink water throughout the day. Eventually, my headache went away.
My cousin called this evening and thanked me for helping out at the baby shower. Later in the evening, one of my friends called to ask how I was and to offer her help with the preparations for the October prayer gathering I will be hosting. Still later, I video chatted with daughter.
I watered the back garden this evening, since it has been so hot and dry. But I didn't do any cleaning. On the schedule for today was my daughter's room and the hallway. Well, my daughter's room hasn't been used since she was home last, so it doesn't really need cleaning as such. I wanted to tidy up the linen closet, which is in the hallway, but it can wait. It is supposed to be cooler this weekend and I will get some cleaning done then.
I wasn't hungry for lunch, so I had a meal replacement drink, instead. I had the leftover rice and stir-fry from yesterday for my dinner, with a battered frozen fish fillet which I baked in the toaster oven. I had an apple with peanut butter for dessert.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The headache going away by evening
- Air conditioning!
- Call from cousin
- Call from friend and her offer of help
- Video chatting with daughter
How was your Thursday?
