Ever have a day where you wake up and your mind clears right away, but when you try to get up, you fall off the bed sideways with almost every part of your body complaining, especially your head?
Last weekend was like that for me, which is why I have no dinner party pictures to share. Sad face, I know. I spent Saturday between the kitchen and the couch, cooking feverishly one hour, then strapping an ice pack to my throbbing head the next.
Thankfully I managed to get the meal on the table and the headache finally started to abate that evening, but even into Sunday and the work week I was feeling off.
I’m blaming the weather. We still have a large bedspread that we sleep with, and even though I’ve adjusted my sleeping clothing to reflect the warmer temperatures, I made the mistake of wearing thermal pants to sleep on Friday night. For some ungodly reason, I become exothermic when I sleep and exude heat like nobody’s business. In the winter it’s nice, but right now I wake up a sweaty, unhappy mess with dehydration headaches.
Just bring me breakfast in bed ok? I even cut it up into little snackable pieces so my husband doesn’t have to worry about handling a knife. I love frittatas because they are so versatile and full of all the good things the body needs in the morning after sweating out every conceivable nutrient overnight.
I’m taking two of these and I’ll see you on Friday.
