What a weird day… It already started yesterday. I had all day this terrible headache. Aspirin or any other painkiller didn’t seem to work. It was really bad. I couldn’t look at the computer screen for 10 minutes without having the feeling that my head would explode.
Luckily at the end of the working day the headache seemed to get less. Yes, seemed… because later in the evening it came back and it was even worse.
I truly hate headaches. They really stop you from functioning in a normal way. Yesterday evening it kept me from sleeping. I was just turning around in bed all the time. Out of bed, back into bed. And again, no painkiller seemed to work.
When after 3am the headache really started to get less, I haven’t been asleep for a single second. And at that moment I was completely over my sleep, meaning that I although was tired I couldn’t sleep anymore.
After sitting with a cup of tea in the living room I made up my mind what to do. At 4am I wrote a mail to Michiel, my team leader at work, that would I started to work from home at 4am, make the hours I needed to do and then jump in my bed and make up some sleep.
Well, that worked. Funny thing is that even due these strange working hours I made some overtime to solve some issues that occurred at the company. Apart from that, there is one big advantage when working from home, you can really can concentrate on what you are doing. And that shows…
I slept during the afternoon some hours very nicely… and deep, it seemed I slept completely through my mobile phone ringing and that is something that never happens to me.
And now? Sure, I am still tired. Sleeping some hours in the afternoon cannot make up for missing a complete nights sleep. But the headache is gone and I enjoyed my dinner really (chicken, a fresh salad and baked potatoes).
Tonight I will take it easy. Looking some of the episodes of the TV series Babylon 5 that I have bought on DvD (sessions 1 to 4). Maybe chatting a bit with Marion on MSN or Skype when she is around. But that is all….
Oh the picture? I made that this morning during the sunrise from my balcony…. Yes, I have a great view from my apartment :)
