The Excitement Builds (not!)

Ok, so I was awake until after 3:00 a.m. and awake at 9:00 a.m. Why? I have absolutely no idea. All I know is the headache is already bad this morning. No drop in pain at all from last night. I am oh-so-tired of this pain.

Bobby and I ventured out of the house last night. We went over to Pizza Man for dinner. It's a small place and doesn't appear to have much dine-in business, so we knew it wouldn't be overly loud. We were right. It felt great to leave the house! For excitement today, I'm planning on walking around the corner to the mailbox. Yippee!

Nothing else has changed in my world. How about yours?

At least I think it's Friday....hard to tell the difference when you rarely even leave the house. Life is continuing on with very little change here. I have a massive headache, cats think I'm a bed and Bobby's still hanging out with me. :-)

Not much else going on. Same ol' stuff. Just waiting to hear from neurologist.

Love ya.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a fun, festive and safe New Year's celebration! Bobby and I celebrated in our standard way - staying in, watching tv and relaxing. Boring, but hey, it's become a tradition for us. :-)

I stayed in bed a long time this morning. The headache was already bad, so I didn't want to get out of bed. However, nature called and I figured I'd better get up. Over the last few days, the pain has gotten slowly but surely worse and worse with very few periods of less pain. I don't really want to go to the ER over a holiday weekend, but if the pain keeps increasing that may be what I do.

Nothing else is going on here. Have a good one!

From a new friend

From one of my new Facebook "friends":

"Keep the smile, leave the tear. Think of joy, forget the fear. Hold the laughter, leave the pain. Be joyous, because it's new year's day!!"

He's somewhere on the other side of the world, I think. I just thought it was a great way to welcome in the new year.

Happy New Year's Eve!


Guess what......I actually left the house yesterday. Of course, it was to go take care of switching car insurance companies and to look for shoes for Bobby and go to the grocery store, but I'll take what I can get. Not that any of the chores were exciting, but I got pretzels at the mall, so I'm content. (And Bobby discovered that the shoes he liked were too wide through the heel, so that was all we got at the mall).

So far, the headache's a little better today. The center of the pain has moved, though. It's moved from the left front to kind of the right center, though there's still a "hot spot" pain in the left front. Unfortunately, it feels as if it's going to develop into a rather large area of pain by the end of the day.

Everyone - have a wonderful, fun, safe and sane New Year's Eve. E ya next year!

Ow, again

The headache is bad again today. It wasn't too bad when I first got up, but it's working it's way back up to horrible, I do believe.
Bobby came home last night. :-) He was unable to get a ticket to the show he was planning to go to last night, so he just came on home. I'm sad he couldn't see his friend's show, but happy he's home. So balance has been restored. The cats are no longer confused. At least no more than usual. Bobby's taking the rest of the week off work, so we get to hang out together. Maybe I'll really get lucky and get in to see the neurologist! I'm not holding my breath on that one, though.
Ok, that's my limit for now. Perhaps I'll write more later.
Love y'all!

My head hurts worse today. Writing more would require thought, so I'll just stop with that.

Sad Sunday

Well, I knew it was coming, but it's still sad. Josh & Jenn left for home this morning. It's always so great having them around, even when we're not really doing anything. It's like part of me is missing when he's not around. Oh, well. They're doing well and Josh even got word that he was hired for a second job for which he had applied. The hours at his other job have been reduced.

On their way home, they're going by to pick up Melia. Melia's visiting them through New Year's. I'm sure all of them will have a blast!

We had a great visit. It's so nice that they live closer, as I get to see them more frequently. I'm sure his dad and mom (ok, step-mom, but that sounds like they don't get along. She's his mom, too) miss seeing him so often, though.

The headache has moved to a different part of my head this morning, but it's still a fairly strong pain. I am just so tired of this. However, perhaps a couple days of relative silence will help me deal with it.

Nothing else is going on. Love to all!
