I am not totally sure what happened to our weekend. I waged the battle with the migraine all damn day yesterday and lost. Badly. I finally came out a winner this afternoon at some point. I will be making an appointment with my doctor to review our options about the migraines. I’ve been on maintenance medicines before, and I’ve taken the Imitrex shots that make me feel like I’ve been run over by a bus. So I need to punt and figure out a new plan. Because as Cass put it, I can’t be responsible for 4 other people and feel like ass. Amen.
I did manage to scrape myself off the couch long enough yesterday to go out to dinner with Doug at Longhorn Steakhouse last night. It was our first trip there and the food was quite good. Sad to say my watermelon margarita did NOT help the migraine, but it sure tasted good. Then we wandered over to TARGET to pick up some storage buckets for the girlie clothes we have. $145 later we left. For the love of Pete, why is it that every time we go to Target, we can’t spend less than $100? And why is it that all I got was a lipstick, but the twins each got two pair of shoes, Drew new Spiderman light up sneakers, Meg two pair of shoes? Yeah, I don’t get it either.
Today was the usual stuff~a family trip to BJ’s, laundry, grocery shopping, lawn mowing. Tried to undo some of the damage the turkey has done to the yard. I told Doug I’m going to start knife throwing practice and see how long the turkey lasts. Ok, so that is totally laughable but I have to do something. All the nice mulch we put in the gardens has been completely torn up and thrown around the yard. I sense turkey on the menu this week.
Today did really bite because the older kids were so incredibly irritable and rude. I was ready to put them to bed at lunchtime. For the day. We kept them up late Friday night by going to meet with the new tenants and then taking them out to dinner (our kids, not the tenants. If the tenants buy the house, then I’ll take them out to dinner), and I guess our babysitter kept them up a bit late last night, but holy cow were they bitchy. Grrr. I am hoping for a less cranky Monday.
