Lost Weekend

And not the fun, umbrella-drink kind of lost weekend, either.

Saturday was awful.  That stupid sinus headache wouldn't go away no matter what I tried.  Hot drinks, hot rice pads, OTC sinus meds, leftover pain killers from my gall bladder surgery...nothing touched it.  I finally had all I could stand and went to bed around 8:30 Saturday night.  Woke up at 1:00 in the morning without the sinus headache, but with a migraine (brought on by lack of sleep, lack of food since I had no appetite and the stress of fighting the sinus stuff all day).  I got up, took my Zomig, and woke up Sunday morning pain free.  I was pain-free all day, but really tired and a little weak.

I think I'm back to normal today, though.

That storm did come in, but for our part of the city, there wasn't much snow.  We got ice instead.  Ice is pretty, but so much more troublesome.  Luckily we didn't get so much that we lost power from downed limbs or lines.  School is closed today, though, and of course, Shane is home from work again.  I'm not going to stress about that, though.  The 4-1/2 days of work he put in last week went a long way to help our general disposition about the situation.  We know the work is there now, and there's not a thing can be done about Mother Nature, so why worry overmuch about it?

My must-do list today includes paying bills and baking bread.  The rest will fall into place as the day progresses.

By the way, I'm halfway through that book!

Hi there! I'm sorry to hear that you had a crappy weekend! It was sort of crappy-yucky here, also. Hubby was still recovering from that NASTY bug that he picked up and I had a bad headache also. But, at least we didn't get any ice/snow/sleet/hail/winds-of-hell that other places got! LOL

And, hubby was able to go back to work today after missing 3 days last week. That is something to rejoice over! :)

UGH. Glad you're feeling better... There's a saying about worrying, goes something like: Worry is like a rocking chair. Gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere.

True story. ;-)

Here's hoping school is open today and your head stays pain-free as well! 8-))

Sorry about your headache/migraine. I had them for years and then a mouth guard cured it. Just a thought.
I'm glad that Shane is back to work and I'm proud of the way that you handled it. You were a lot calmer than I would have been.
And the picture is beautiful. And I'm not an ice fan. We got about 6-7 inches of heavy snow. Yuck.

Just stopping by to say "Hi!" and hope that all is going okay your way! :)

Thanks everyone...I'm feeling much, much better this week.

And thanks, Tug, for the wisdom about worry. I'm going to commit that phrase to memory. :)
