My life is utterly and completely blah today. At about three o'clock in the morning, I was mentally composing a top ten list of how to tell if you've got a migraine. It went something like this:
10. The moon, which is not as bright as, say, this computer monitor, is blinding you.
9. Your pillows are making you nauseaus.
8. If that damn cat doesn't stop purring so loudly you'll give him something to purr about!
7. The gentle rain falling on the roof makes you cry for everyone who ever suffered from Chinese Water Torture

and then I got lost.

I'm feeling slightly better now. For breakfast I had this

and I even managed to gaze thoughtfully at this little set up (both of these point at a new cheap tv I just bought so I can spin and workout to my own shows, without taking up living room space, or having to watch what the boys are watching. The space thing was bothering some of my husbands)

I did say "gaze thoughtfully" and I hope no one thought that was an implication that I actually considered using either of those things, both of which are far too noisy for my mental status right now.

and here is the toe/foot of the guy safe sock I'm working on right now. Another two inches or so and I'll start the gussets and heel, but that'll have to wait until My Stuff Weekend.

Oh, and many thanks to all the book selections last weekend. I managed to get out of work only slightly late last night, and picked up the David Sedaris that was the most popular comedy selection. I also on a whim grabbed the second Ellen DeGeneres book. I flipped through both, and settled on a selection from Ellen that made GB laugh out loud no fewer than three times when I read it to him. And for the knitterly book, I went with a selection from Knitting for Anarchists, so thanks go to whomever reminded me of that one. I hope to be able to provide more details on my use of these items within a month, so cross body parts, light candles, say prayers and chant that good things come of it!

Blech. I hope your head feels better soon! I can so empathize with you ~ I'm a migraine sufferer, too. They sure to suck!

Love to you,

Okay, I'm going to be late for work now because I took the time to comment here, but... hey, you're my sis, and that's how much I care. So:

OWIE! I really disenjoy headaches, and don't recommend them for people I like.

I have been known to wish them upon various bosses, and even the occasional customer-slash-parishioner (depending upon where I'm working at the moment), but usually only when I have one myself. (You know, do unto others.... Or something.)

I hope your head feels better, Rose. (See how quietly i'm typing?) I've been fighting bad sinus headaches all week . . . yes, it's Spring . . . and twice they've crossed over into near-migraine territory with the light-sensitivity and pounding . . . I really don't want to think about it! Hope the purring reverts to soothing soon!

When I have headache, I would take Advil liquid gel, which works quite well for me. I have now learned to detect really early red flag of headache and then have preemptive strike ... take the medication before the real pain sets in. That saves a lot of suffering.
Wish the headaches AWAY from you.

Hi - truly feeling your pain here - I woke up with a migraine Sunday and finally broke it yesterday. Thank the heavens for relpax. I was one step away from going to the er. I've had to go back on my preventive meds. Ugh.

I hope you're feeling much better now! I get migraines much too often, so I empathize.

I'm curious, by the way... exactly how many husbands do you have? And how many of them had space issues? Cause if you've got plenty to spare, I'd tell the ones that have space issues to take a hike. :-)
