For those that have had exactly three migraines in their entire life and have no set plan, I offer some suggestions for dealing with that pesky little headache that blurs your vision has you just wanting to
The first thing you will want to do is deny you have a migraine. You will go about your regular day reasoning, Hey, you're a homeschooler, the children need their education. Math will be especially awesome when you have to focus on converting millimeters to centimeters and cannot see the decimal point because it won't stand still.
After school is done - where you've done a stellar job and only had to take scissors away from the two year old one time
The noise from the lawn mower is actually considerably less than the noise from your children
Ten minutes into this chore, you will hate your neighbors. Who are they, anyway, to assume you are a hoarder? And seriously, while Don and Kelly to the left always edged their lawn, Eric and Stephanie to the right never did. Which made it totally cool that you could slack in that department. You loved Eric and Stephanie. But then Eric had to go and get "seasonal allergies so bad he could no longer mow the lawn himself" and hire a service who consider edging the lawn something you do every time you stop by for a quick trim, which only highlights the fact that you do not edge your own lawn with nearly enough frequency
After lunch you will cuddle some kids on the couch while your eight year old reads a storybook because there is no way you can handle that mess. You will decide that scrunching your face up - eyes tightly shut, nose like a rabbit sniffing, and mouth puckered - is the best method of pain management currently available, and you will sit like that for the duration of story hour.
At nap time you will finally admit you have a migraine. You will take a shower and pray to throw up, and after that, lie quietly on the couch until the kiddos come creeping out. This is where your genius will truly reveal itself.
As awesome as that is, you will sigh in relief when the neighborhood kids return home from school, and your brood bolts outside to play with them. This signals not only the start of a quiet house but also that reinforcements, in the form of your spouse, are coming home to take over soon.
When the spouse comes home, retreat to your bedroom, draw the shades, get into bed, and dream about a McDonald's hot fudge sundae.
