Weekend Stuff

  • Mr. Lime and Diana arrived safely in Louisiana late Saturday night. They are currently in the 9th ward of New Orleans. Mr. Lime says it's "interesting but he's not ready to relocate." Ok, glad we agree on that relocation thing.
  • I got my car back on Saturday...ya know, the one I just had a new transmission put into but then 24 hours later it went back because it was leaking fluid. I'm definitely not impressed with the mechanics. They couldn't find my key, then realized it was left in the ignition, clicked on, leaving my battery dead. Idiots.
  • A very, very kind friend saw me shuffling though the deli aisle late Friday. I had run off with Mr. Lime's truck for the hour he wasn't using it so I could go to the chiropractor to try to kill the headache and then the grocery store to get food because who knew how long I'd be without a vehicle. She asked what was going on because she saw how rough I was looking and had just heard about 2/5 of my family leaving for 6 weeks and I filled her in on the lack of wheels. I melted down a little when I told her and she very graciously INSISTED she be allowed to take me wherever I needed to go until I had a car again and if I still didn't have my car by today she had an extra one she'd let me use. Bless her.
  • My migraine is gone. I spent two days feeling horrid then a day in post migraine brain fog. Good riddance.
  • I've had two dinner invites for the remaining kids and myself so far. Much appreciated.
  • One was Sunday night so a friend's son could show off his new sound system with these subwoofers that vibrate the foundation of the house. Seriously, this thing was more powerful than any movie theater I've ever been in. It was insane. Thank God the migraine was gone.
  • I am taking today and tomorrow to tie up loose ends and then heading out to Maryland to sit my butt in the sun, read books and swim in the river for a few days. Calypso will visit my mom (she wanted no part of the river for whatever reason). Isaac and a pal of his will come to the beach.
I know this is not the most interesting post in the world but that's an update of where I stand. Thanks again for the well wishes. Better stuff tomorrow.

Mona said...

Thank God that headache is gone...

The medicines that I am taking have a frontal lobe headache as a side effect. I have it for more than a month now, EVERYDAY! It is a terrible feeling to have a headache!

Momma said...

I'm so glad you're doing better today. Take good care of yourself and enjoy the weather in my neck of the woods!

Peace - D

migraines suck balls and not in a good way

Fred said...

Glad you're feeling better. I used to get migraines as a kid and they mysteriously went away.

A back-up car is always a good thing. Let's hope yours is finally healed.

Kathryn said...

Thank heavens the migraine is gone! Wonderful news!
Enjoy your beach time! :)

New Orleans. It's a big "bowl," designed by God to retain water... let's build a city in it... NOT!

So glad to hear about your very cool friend at the deli. She was directly a blessing to you, but it made my day just to hear about it.

Books. I have one book that I think you would really enjoy. Email me for the specifics, 'kay?

Cosima said...

So glad to hear the migraine is gone, and you have multiple cars to choose from!

Suldog said...

I'm just glad to hear that your migraine has left. MY WIFE gets them (though, blessedly, not as often as she once did, thanks to... I wish I could remember what she takes. Honestly. We could compare notes.)

Have a great time in the sun!

VE said...

Is it great, the migrane is gone and now you have the rest of the world's annoyances to fill it! Cheers...

coopernicus said...

It was strange...I knew three people that came down with migraines on Friday. Planets must have been out of whack. Glad yer feeling better. Go relax by the riverside...

San said...

Michelle, I loved reading this post! Thank goodness for running into friends when you need them most.

And have a delicious time in Maryland, soaking in the river, soaking in the run, soaking in the books, soaking in your beautiful self.

Glad you are feeling better, have fun in Maryland.

witnessing am i said...

Hope things continue to improve -- the migranes, the leaking car, sitting in the Maryland sun and feeling much, much better and nice kisses from Mr. Lime.

S said...

RennyBA said...

Its interesting to me course you sounds so much better and that makes me glad :-)

SignGurl said...

This is my kind of post! I love knowing how you are doing.

I'm glad things are working out in your favor :)

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

Big relief that the headache is gone....the getaway with the river swimming sounds like just what the doctor ordered. I hope you are able to put your feet up, get'em wet a little, and relax, relax, relax....you totally deserve it.

Breazy said...

I am glad your migraine is over. You know, sometimes we go through this world trying to shoulder our burdens on our own and then God puts someone in our path to help us. I am also glad that you have good people around you.

I think the trip to Maryland is just what you need after the time you have had lately.

Have a great day!

Moosekahl said...

Glad you are getting to head out for a bit of R&R of your own and headache free too! Have a great trip!

M said...

i am soooo soooo glad the migraine is gone. i am also glad you bumped into a friend and she offered the car. that is what friends are for and i know you would do the same for your friends (-:

barman said...

I love this post because, light SigGurl I love to hear how things are going for you.

I am very happy you lost the migraine. My headaches I get are bad enough. I can not imagine a migraine.

I had a dealer do similar things to my car when I took it to them. Similar in that what they did was just unforgivable. That dealership is out of business now.

Have a wonderful mini vacation Lime. Come back all refreshed.

Jocelyn said...

I love your update--and find it immensely helpful in this summer where I can't seem to find time to make the blog rounds. Do know, whatever my absences, that I think of you more than I should.

That kind of sounded weird and nice at the same time, right?

tsduff said...

Migrains and broken cars suck. Friends and beaches are great. So glad you are on the upside swing :)

mssolitaire said...

Yay for safe travels! And how wonderful it is to have friends come to help out in times of need! :)

Yay for your car too! :) Stupid mechanics!
