It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong. —Voltaire, 1751

I think He is trying to tell me to slow down …

(as if the headaches aren’t enough)

Do you work when you are sick?  I can’t honestly remember the last time I didn’t work because I was sick. I’m in awe of people who can take them (and know when it’s appropriate to take them, yes – I’m talking to you whiners and crybabies).  With all the technology these days, do true sick days really even still exist?

If you know me, you know I can’t sit still.  I’m always doing, making, thinking.  I get enormous migraines the first day of every vacation – either the stress leaving my body in one big bang as I let go, or the stress of doing nothing for an extended period of time crushing down on me.  Sometimes it’s both.

Last week I had a low budget headache all week, my ears were ringing.  On Friday, I was sure I had turf toe (yes it hurt that badly).  But I went to work, toughed it out, ran around the building from meeting to meeting (no highschool-like bell system unfortunately). Went home, had dinner with the fam and packed for the lake.

Woke up Saturday with the back of my neck and shoulders frozen in pain.  What the hell?  The only way it felt ok was if I raised my arms up (not a great way to spend 90 minutes in the car, enjoy a boat ride, swim, and nevermind tubing).  But did it stop me, no sir.

It still hurts today, and I am trying to rest in between loads of laundry, ebay, a CSS tutorial, studying for my Adwords certification, and this blog post.

Resting is just not in me.  So I’ll give it another go and try to take a nap this afternoon – right after I put a load in the dryer and make one of these really cute felt things from this adorable book
