I mowed the ditch and it about killed me. I had headache that then turned into the biggest headache I've ever had. It made me nauseous and I had to lay down. Still a dull throb. It's been 3 maybe 4 days now. I'm really ready for it to go away.
Emily came home today, but not like she was supposed to. The kids and I expected her at 1:00pm. We waited and waited. We haven't seen her for three weeks and today was Buddy Day at the fair (two ride for the price of one). It was going to be our one day to go as a family. Finally after 3:00pm her dad sends me a text to let me know he was at work and wasn't bringing her until 6:30pm. No phone call. No previous arrangements to change the drop off time. No consideration that I might just have plans with my daughter. At 42 years of age you would think there could be adult communication. It wasn't even that he was at work. His new wife took my daughter to the fair. During my time. Ruining our plans. Four other kids were left disappointed. The boys are used to this kind of stuff, but it was kind of hard for Olivia and Lucas. They are only five and four and don't understand.
I cried a lot and it made my head hurt even more. I know Emily felt bad coming home to so many disappointed people. She's only ten. It isn't her fault.
Another life lesson for the kids on how not to be when they grow up. Sure seems like they've been getting a lot of those lately. It sucks not being able to shelter them from life's disappointments.
Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
We got four more eggs today. Odd chickens. They don't lay in the morning. They just lay whenever wherever.
I finally finished Nick's room tonight, headache and all. I have a little touch up to do tomorrow, but we're calling it good. Most parents would shudder at the idea of such a wild paint job in their house, but I figure it is his room. It's only paint and it sure feels good to make him so happy.

It's been a lot of work, but fun. Not sure I want to tackle a project like this one any time soon. So many other things that need done around here to make the house more livable, but this room is a great way to start a Senior year.
Starting to feel sick again as the pain throbs in my head so I'm off to bed. Can't believe it's already midnight. Where does the time go?
