Been busy then I cracked my head

Sorry I haven't been writing, I've been letting my Galatians paper take over my life. But now after more hours that I want to admit (think in terms of days, not hours, actually) I feel like it's in pretty decent shape. I even found a neat structural thing that my prof said she hadn't noticed before. Usually that means she tells the whole class I'm wrong, but I'm crossing my fingers that I won't be humiliated again. Wish me luck!

Meantime, I can't spend long b/c I haven't checked email in days and I need to not be on the computer long. Why? Glad you asked. Two reasons, actually. Internet at home has been not working, and I don't like to walk over to the Library. Reason #2 is not as pretty: Saturday night, in the act of something that one really doesn't want ruined, J and I cracked heads really hard. I went into increasing levels of pain and dizziness for the rest of the night, and the dizziness and headache lasted all day the following day also. Today it's been 2 days and I seem to not be hurting so much unless I concentrate too hard for too long or walk around too much, which gets me dizzy again. Yes, I know, I probably had a concussion. Can you believe my husband's hard head did that to me? But I'm sure it's not nearly the silliest or worst thing that's ever happened to a couple mid-coitus (I mean, people actually DIE). It does tend to ruin the mood, however.

So last night I tried reading but had to read every line 3 times and had a raging headache after 4 pages. This is NOT good. It's midterms, people. I can't be running around with brain bruises. So pray for my poor little head. At this point I'm just very sore, occasionally dizzy, and super sleepy. But I managed to work on my paper and do some translating today, and I'm telling stupid jokes as always, so I haven't lost it. Still I want to feel better.

Sometimes people recommend sex as a sort of home rememdy for a headache...in this case I suppose you'd better skip it...
