Finding the time to post seems to get harder & harder!

We had a full and eventful weekend! Thursday was our "Field Day" here at work so my weekend started a little early since Friday was also my Friday off. We had a great time at the park even though I had one of the worst migraines I have experienced in quite a while. I didn't want it to keep me from participating this Thursday so I exerted myself more than I should which resulted in a lot of pain that evening. By the time I got home I was barely able to stand up. I took some of my medicine and tried to lay down, but just couldn't relax. About three hours later I took another b/c I hadn't experienced any relief. It was getting to the point where I told Michael he was going to have to take me to the emergency room if it didn't let up b/c the pain was so bad and since I couldn't relax I couldn't just sleep it off like I would normally do. I think he was pretty worried, b/c he called my mother and told her what was going on and that he really didn't know what to do. He kept heating up a wet towel for me and I switched between that and an ice bag the rest of the night. My parents ended up coming over and by about ten thirty or eleven o'clock the pain had subsided enough that I was able to fall asleep. I guess the emergency room wouldn't really have been able to do anything except give me something strong enough to knock me out and my body never really responds well to that stuff.

Friday morning Michael was up and off to work at 5:15 and I couldn't fall back to sleep after he left so I got up and started my day. I was afraid that my headache was going to continue onto Friday, but it wasn't that bad. I cleaned house all morning and later my mother came over and we ran errands and did stuff around the house. I had to make a dessert for Michael's company crawfish boil so we got everything together for that and made a Better Than Sex cake - it was delicious! Mother left about 3:00 to beat the traffic home and after Michael got home and showered we were out the door again to meet up with his coworker to head over to the crawfish boil. We had a good time!! It was a late night, too.

Saturday Michael and I worked at the house all day both inside and out and both ended up taking long naps that afternoon. My sister and her husband came over that evening and we all went out to dinner together!

Sunday morning we slept late, but made it up just in time to get dressed and make it to church! Afterwards we had a late b'fast out together and drove around for a bit looking at houses - just cruising! We made it back to the house and I got started on getting last minute things ready for my niece's baby shower, which was at two. We had a good turn out and she got a lot of nice things. I think it finally cleared out by six and Michael and I decided to have dinner out as well. It had been a fun and full day and niether of us felt like cooking!

Needless to say, today is Monday. The start of another week...the start of the first week of the Commit to Get Fit program, too!
