Some days you just have to rest....

Things have been so busy this last year that I haven't had time to breathe let alone blog. Today I planned on my day off from school and babysitting and all that I seem to do lately to clean my house and catch up on my shows, and internet time along with playing with the kids outside. Well, Jaxon and I made it outside for about 2 hours and I managed to do a load of laundry, dishes, and make my bed... then I got the worst migraine I have had in months. It was full on, head pounding, light blinding, noise peircing migraine. I even went to the door at one point to answer it and found myself so dizzy that I came pretty close to passing out. So for the last 5 hours I pretty much layed on the couch and tried not to move.
I finally feel somewhat better and decided to check my email and thought might as well check the blogs I follow too. I'm wiped out and as soon as I finish this blog I'm going to crawl in bed and try to get a good 8 hours of sleep. Tomorrow is two of my friends kids birthday party (they are having it together) plus it is supposed to be our first snowfall. I'm not really looking forward to it, the snow not the birthday party. I'm all for cake and ice cream and my kids being able to play with their best friends. I am just so not looking forward to winter. I makes me want to run away and cover up and not leave my house. However with 2 boys that will tear down my walls if I dont let them outside that is not going to happen. So we will be spending lots of time outside even in the cold and snow. Someone please send us warm thoughts so I don't become a popcicle this year.
So I have 3 weeks left of school. November 4th is my last day of classes. Then I have my externship that starts on the 10th of November. Then on the 21st of November I take my AMT. I'm so nervous about the end of school. I was told several times that there was no way I was going to finish and yet here I am 3 weeks away and to top it off I have a 4.0. It hasn't been easy and I've had to learn to let a lot of things go this year but I've made it. Although I have to say radiology is kicking my butt right now but it's sooo worth it. I love this field and I never thought I would. Yes, people think it's gross to be working in someone else's mouth and I thought that too but now I can't wait to get out there and help people who are in pain and to help keep their smiles healthy. I really owe this all to my friend Leanne. She is the one who got me interested in the dental field. She was going to school when I started and she has just been an inspiration. She loves it. And now I can see why. I just can't wait to go to work doing something I love.
However that brings up another hard thing for me... to leave behind being a stay at home mom. I LOVE being a stay at home mom and I love my kids so much. It will be hard to not be home with them everyday. I want to work part time, that way I can still be home with them as much as possible. So we will see how it goes. Keep your fingers crossed for me and say a prayer for all of us as we make a new transition with our family. It's a big step for all of us.
Anyway, I'm going to head to my comfy bed now! I'll post some new pictures hopefully tomorrow. I have so many new ones! :) goodnight all!

Have you ever tried Maxalt for your migraines? That is what I use and it works pretty well. I know other people have had luck with Midrin (sp?) and Imitrex. If you haven't tried any of them you should definitely check it out.
