Well Hello, Land of the Living!

Yes, I finally feel like I might live and rejoin the world where people can function - phew!  I started getting a headache shortly after waking up on Friday.  I took some of my migraine medicine because though it wasn't really underway, I just felt like it wasn't a regular short-lived headache, and wanted to see if I could get it under control before it really took off.  Alas, I was too late, as by the middle of the morning I was in agony.  I ended up missing most of Friday and all of yesterday.  And I hate that, especially when it happens on a weekend.  I mean, who wants to be sick on their own time??

Anyway, today will be extremely low-key to say the least, but I didn't have any specific plans so it's just as well.  My main activity will be putting a couple of our quilts in the washer and the dryer.  I would hang them on the clothesline to dry, but the last time I did that on a really humid day, the stuff ended up in the dryer after all.  I'm just gonna skip the middle part, so to speak.

Unfortunately, one of the things that suffered from me being out of commission yesterday was that I didn't make it to the post office to mail the Christmas in July packages.  So for those who won a giveaway, please be patient a bit longer - I may not have another chance to get there until next Saturday, but you'll be the first to know when I have mailed them. 

And that's it for today.  I don't want to spend too much time on the computer until I am 100% certain that the headache is in the past.  Enjoy the rest of your day, and I'll check in again soon.

To give you a smile, here is a picture of Hamlet as a tiny puppy, sent to me by the woman who raised him for the Seeing Eye Foundation.  That face!!!


Some things can ALWAYS make you feel better. :-)

So very sorry about your lost days. This is another reason you and I are so simpatico --- crushing headaches that only another crushee can understand.

Golden retriever puppies have wonderful faces, don't they? Sad and hopeful and playful and sleepy all at the same time.

Oh, my goodness! That face! So FUN for you to see puppy-Hamlet! (What a thoughtful gesture.) I hope you're feeling better today . . . I know how awful those "migraine hangovers" can be. XO

Migraines are the worst! I usually cuddle up with a cat or two. I find the purring helps!

Bonny said...

Nobody could resist Hamlet's sweet face! I'm glad you received a baby picture of him, and I hope your migraine recovery continues (or at least try to be sick on work time next time)!
