Another One Bites The Dust

I'm working on recovering from the worst migraine- possibly the worst one ever. It came like a thunderstorm in July, at 5am on my poor defenseless head. Of course I had put off picking up my migraine medicine, and my Excedrin, so I was totally hurtin'. I don't have a clue how I got daughter to school without killing us all, and I was far too in pain to go to the drug store to even get my medicine, so I came home, threw up twice, and had to call husband to come home for the day. Not a fun day at all! At least he did come home with my medicine, and I slept for FIVE hours. What a day. I really don't want to go on preventatives, but I may be heading in that direction. In any event I guess I need to go back to my doctor because headaches waking you up, and vomiting with them aren't really the greatest things.

Anyhow, I guess I should have mentioned in my previous post that the wonderfully ultra close concert tickets that I scored were for the Jonas Brother concert for daughter- it's on my list of summer plans. Well, if they were summer plans for me they obviously wouldn't include that, but they aren't my summer plans ;) I got tickets to Disney on Ice too, which is listed in there too. So at least I am being productive in the ticketing/entertainment department. :)

Other than that, not much to report going on around here. I spent all weekend with a friend from nursing school, who was nice enough to take a train down here to visit me (hi Monique!). We had lots of fun, and ate way too much food, and the best part of all is that we planned a girls cruise for this Sept/Oct. I soooo need an adults only vacation, I can't wait! A short jaunt out of town in the fall is just what I need, and we've already made plans to zip line through the jungle in Cozumel, which is sure to be a blast! :o) Yay for girls cruise!

Now I just need to get back to magically dropping weight- at least 20lbs by October. I think to satisfy my curiosity of it's effectiveness, the Acai Berry was front page on Yahoo today. I couldn't decide if they were making sure people know it doesn't cause weight loss, or if they were just warning about the hidden small print, $90 a month charge people are getting after the free trial. Either way, I probably won't be ordering any more. On to the next miracle cure :o/

In closing, we have AGAIN had another credit card close on us. This time, Lowes, with which we have had credit for SIX YEARS and NEVER been late once! We also had a zero balance on the card! Can you believe this!? Given the bank that owns them, I am certain that Old Navy and Sams Club will be next. If that happens, expect to see me on the national news for going ape on someone, because it's getting ridiculous and I'm sick of being penalized for other peoples faults. Ugh.

Back to cleaning house..or at least thinking about it ;)

Sorry to hear you are having tough times. Glad you are treating yourself to a vacation. Doing that for myself next week actually.

I still haven't looked into that Disney on ice thing, but my kiddo has been pestering me about it. Glad you got good seats for the JB. That should be a dream come true for your daughter!

Hope things start looking up for you soon. If you ever need a shoulder or a mojito or anything, just give me a shout!

I once had a migraine that went on for 3 days before it started to sort of calm down. Then, just as I was starting to sort of enjoy my day at work the FIRE alarm went off. One of those high-pitched screechy horrible ones with the STROBE lights! THEN my boss tells me "Oh the thing is just broken. There's no fire. Stay at your desks and try to work through it." FOUR HOURS LATER the damned thing was still going off. I was SURE my brain was bleeding. I think the damned migraine went on another week after that. Anyway it was 8 years ago but I'll never forget it - that's MY worst :)
