I was going to go to the game, but this is the best weather we are supposed to get for the next few days. So, I'm just going to sit....

Wifey is on her way home....dogs are laying at my feet....and all is right with my world.

Have a happy milestone days....Christmas is coming!!!!
We have one more week of school to go, I'm looking foward to having the kids home. Enjoy your break!

They turned even brighter red and burned terribly. I didn't know that I had them this time and I ate sauce, now I'm paying the price! I have been feeling rundown for a few days but I thought it had to do with the time change. Now I know why!
I hope you're feeling better.

I will keep her in my thoughts.

Yesterday evening I got dizzy suddenly for no good reason, and it just got worse, so I went to bed early. Even lying down, the bed spun unless I lay very still. I wasn't dizzy when I got up this morning, but I didn't feel right all day, and still don't. I think it has something to do with yesterday's dizziness somehow. I may stay home tomorrow if I feel the same in the morning. But that's nothing compared with what some of you are dealing with right now. You're all in my thoughts.
I hope you're feeling better now, I will keep you in my thoughts.

Maybe you have been this route already but I hear certain food allergies can trigger migraines too. I know it can be triggered by many things but you might give it a try to be tested for allergies to rule that out, if you haven't already done so. I hope you get better soon!

Same for you Caninemom on testing (if you have not already done so). =)
