This has been the week of the migraine!
I don’t know if it’s the weather, or what’s been going on, but I’ve had a headache all week! I’m NOT sick. Sinuses seem OK. Bah! The thing is, I don’t normally get headaches, and especially not the light-sensitive variety, which is what I have. I’ve been taking better care of myself, trying to keep my immune system healthy. I was only sick once last year. This headache nonsense is VERY unusual for me. I don’t like it. It makes it rough to be productive. Plus, I’m having some VERY goofy dreams. Ya-da, ya-da, ya-da… If I can push my way past the pain, I’m good. That’s what I’ve been doing. If I can keep busy enough, I don’t have time to think about it, and I can ignore the pounding. It’s amazing what you can ignore if you’re stubborn enough. I’m exceptionally stubborn!
The lovely people I work with are hilarious. They’ve been feeding me a steady supply of caffeinated beverages to help curb the pain, and we’ve named my migraine Gary…because….well, why not! Nobody wants me to turn into the person who gets migraines, and by naming it Gary, we can all live in denial. Fun stuff! Reality has NO place in my world. 🙂
As far as word count goes…well, I did get in some writing on my WIP since Wednesday. I got in 840 words in on Friday and I did a little writing on Saturday, but I didn’t keep track of the count. I didn’t do a Blogophilia post. I just wasn’t able to tap very deeply into my creativity. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow. Maybe by then, Gary will be ready to move on!

I did a LOT of reading this week. I love to read. If I can’t write, I read. No, the headaches are NOT from eyestrain. Headache came first. 😛
I got out for a little fun this weekend. If I’m going to have a headache anyways, I might as well go out and have it, rather than sit around at home! Hubby took me to see the new Underworld movie. I loved it so much, I can’t wait to see it again. 🙂
We went as a family to the Plymouth Ice Spectacular, in Plymouth, Michigan. I’ll post up pics of that later this week.
I forced myself to go outside and take pics of the creek near my home. I wanted to get in some shots before the snow thaws again. The temps have been dipping down into the single digits at night but it’s supposed to warm up by Monday. There’s so much beauty at this time of year. I love seeing everything covered in a blanket of white. I was outside for close to an hour, checking out nature at her finest.
Enough whining or I’ll need a large wedge of cheese to go with! He! He!
Have a great day!
