“I’m very brave generally,” he went on in a low voice: “only today I happen to have a headache.”
— Tweedledum, from Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll
This week’s list of things I’m happy about/grateful for:
1. the moment you realize your headache is gone – I’ve been battling daily migraines since Sunday, when I decided to really give up caffeine, like I am supposed to. Last night, I went to bed at 7:30, nearly incapacitated by the pain. I woke up at nearly 3 in the morning to pee, and I was so, so relieved to be pain-free. It was like a huge weight had been lifted.
2. Girl Scout Cookies! Samoas have always been my favorite, but this year I’ve found them much too sweet. But Tagalongs and Thin Mints have saved the day.
3. Morning workouts – it’s so simple, but on the days I manage to get up and run or go to the gym before work, I feel great all day knowing that it’s already out of the way, and I get so excited when I remember during the day that I don’t have to go to the gym after work!
