Friday Stuff

  • It's 3:30AM. Mr. Lime and Diana just left for 6 weeks in Louisiana.
  • 12 hours ago a migraine from the depths of hell climbed out of the pit and began eating the top of my skull. I've taken stupid amounts of drugs to kill it and in the couple of hours we had a truck I went to the chiropractor. It is still killing me.
  • Less than 24 hours ago both Mr. lime's truck and my van were back at the mechanic's.
  • We have spent over $2000 trying to make both cars roadworthy in the last 2 and a half weeks.
  • My van is still in the shop.
  • I wanted to make a nice dinner for everyone before they left but I was too busy trying not to puke from this headache and then laying in bed crying because it hurt so bad.
  • I got up to say goodbye.
  • I'm going back to bed now and praying my family stays safe on the long drive and while they are away.
  • I don't know if this is 55 words or not and I don't care. My head hurts too much to count words.
  • As for Da Count....I'll be thankful migraines aren't fatal even though this one feels that way. Mr. Lime should be thankful I didn't feel well enough to hurt him when he declined to give me a goodbye kiss and only did so after our daughter insisted he did.

San said...

Michelle, I used to have migraines. Horrible.

Get in bed. Cover your head. And place a compress on your forehead. Forget the world.

citizen of the world said...

Hate migraines. Hate them. Hope you are well soon.

James Goodman, Author said...

AW, my poor Limey. I hope the pain ebbs soon.

Hugs...

mssolitaire said...

Ouch! I hope you're feeling better! Migraines are not fun at all!

HUGS!

Craver Vii said...

:-(

(whispering) I'll pray for you right now.

mary said...

ooooo. i am so sorry!

i know how it goes when you start throwing medicine at the migraine in desperation. but sometimes you just have to wait it out.

take care (-:

Suldog said...

Just said a prayer for you, darlin'.

So, you're alone for how long? And you know I really adore you. If you see a slightly overweight bald stalker (but one with a lovely baritone voice) it's not me. No, not me. Uh-uh.

And, did you actually listen to those songs from my band with a migraine going on? God bless you. You're an idiot, but God bless you.

John-Michael said...

(... whispered wishes for a soft and gentle afternoon's minimal activities ... sshhhhh ... I'm quietly outta her now ...)

[silently blown kisses]

BTExpress said...

Hope you feel better soon. Maybe the two of them being away is just the thing you guys need right now. Sometimes separation really does make the heart grow fonder and make people realize how much they need each other.

Breazy said...

Lime I am sorry to hear you are dealing with another migraine. I will say a prayer for you, Mr. Lime and oldest for a safe trip, the two at home knowing to be quiet so that you can rest and I will also pray that the mechanic gets your van going.

HUGS!
Hope you feel better quickly.

VE said...

I hate migranes. I've heard that if you remove the brain though, it'll still hurt but you won't know to care...

Kathryn said...

Oh yuck. To all of it, yuck. Flipping migraines. They are the worst. I hope it leaves you ASAP.

coopernicus said...

This one's been building for awhile, hasn't it? Think of tropical breezes, soft surf and a blonde bronzed god serving you tangy margarita's while lounging ocean side...

Flash said...

My deepest sympathies for the migrain. Hopefully you'll be back to your perky life enjoying normality (for whatever that is)

Rob said...

I'm just guessing that the migraine isn't what hurts the most, my friend. I hope it ALL gets better -- maybe starting with the migraine but EVERYTHING else too! You deserve better...

You and your kids will be in my prayers. Stay strong, Michelle.

seventh sister said...

Try to find yourself a good crainiosacral therapist or at least get your chiropractor to adjust you sacrum if he/she isn't doing that already. If the migraines are not hormomal, that should help.

I hope you feel better real soon.

TorAa said...

55 words or not. That does not matter.
It's the story behind.

Most important is that all of you will have a wonderful time off and get rid off stress and pains.

I do by best here. LOL. So far so good.

Have a wonderful Summertime.

hugs
Tor

btw. Thanks for all kind words and thoughts.It's more helpful that I ever could have imagined.

Seamus said...

Naughty Mr. Lime! :(

Hope you head feels better soon!

SignGurl said...

I am hoping you are feeling like partying because 2/5 of your family is out of your hair.

Have a great weekend.

CrazyCath said...

Nurse that head honey. Migraines are the pits. I can only lie down and cry too.
And he shouldn't need prompting to kiss you. Especially when you're sick.

Hope they all travel safely and that you feel better in the morning. Sleep is the only cure I know of for migraine.

S said...

Well I am just going to say it,
You are rid of two pain in the asses for awhile. Maybe they will appreciate you while they are gone, if not, it's their loss.
I know you love em, but enough is enough.

Feel better sweetie. Pay Calypso $100. to take care of your boy for a few days and dont get out of bed.
They can survive on Cheerios.
:X

javajazz said...

haha, Susie, that was good!
sorry about the poopy stuff, Lime.
sometimes a little space
goes a lonnnng way.
enjoy the quiet...
once i heard that if you put a
(i know this sounds so nuts)
a banana peel on your forehead
and one behind your head where
it starts to curve in, its supposed
to help the migraine.
honestly i cant get that crazy
image out of my mind...
wouldnt it be weird
if that actually helped?
feel better...i like the
craniosacral suggestion...

Casdok said...

Banana peel! Havent heard that one, but when you are desperate you will try anything. Hope you are feeling better.

RennyBA said...

So your summer relaxing time can start and you know I wish you a great one - don't forget your strawberry place my friend!

DianeCA said...

Well you did good on your 55 words and extra koodoes for doing it with a migraine!! It may just have been caused by your auto repair bills??? Just kidding. hope you are feeling better now!!

tsduff said...

Awe - I'm sorry you are losing your family for so long, and worse the thing about the NON-goodbye... Dark room, do-not-disturb sign on the door, and whoever said pay Calypso to watch the boy was right on. May it pass by swiftly.

Moosekahl said...

Okay, that's too creepy! I spent all day Thursday in bed or on the tile floor in the bathroom with a migraine after taking a stupid amount of drugs to try to kill it. It didn't kill me but yesterday and today I have still not felt "normal." My tummy is really churning and I'm sort of dizzy. Not a great feeling. I hope yours is doing better.

Ameratis said...

Aww yuck, I know how migraines can be, though this weekend I suffer only from four gaping wholes where teeth used to be but they gave me great drugs to accompany such.

I hope yours gets better mucho soon and that you and the two left can have a good time :)

Fred said...

Did you get up yet?

Beach Bum said...

Saturday evening now I hope the migraine is now a bad memory.

airplanejayne said...

6 weeks of bon-bons and old movies.

or

you can come out here and we can learn how to pole dance.

your choice, sweetie!!

p.s. hope the migraine has vacated your brain.

cathy said...

eat apples and bananas and drink plenty of water.

I plan to use my husband as a proxy for mr lime and slap him for you.

Hope you're feeling better:)

Cheesy said...

snowelf said...

Oh bless your heart, Lime, I'm so sorry you're skull is being munched!! :( And the car stress is just as bad--hope all gets remedied soon.

Momma said...

Oh girl, I know something about those headaches. I hope that by now it has passed and the soreness that usually follows has gone, too. I also hope and pray that your family returned home safely.

Take care of yourself - Peace - D

barman said...

I am sorry you have to go through such terrible migraines. I am just happy to know that the migraine is over since I am visiting a few days late.

Jocelyn said...

It was exactly 55 words.

I'm sure of it.
