Our Life In Pictures - Project365 Week 5

Well.. this week I was an utter failure at pictures. I managed to get THREE days of pictures! Sorry guys... I'm supposed to be getting BETTER not worse! :-(

Sunday 30 January - I can't remember much of Sunday. I know I started a new dose of one of my medications and I started to get a bad headache and went to bed even before Extreme Home Makeover came on. It was a sad day for me. :-( So, I'm putting up a picture of my handsome Monkey from before Church.

{Not my picture}

Monday 31 January - I still had a headache and my neck was really stiff, and I was nauseas, I didn't want to be alive. I called my doctor to see if they wanted me to come in, or go to the ER to be seen. Of course they wanted me to go to the ER. I begged Sam to come home and take me, but, he couldn't leave and come home. We didn't end up getting to the ER until 4:30 that night. It was a madhouse. They gave me a shot of Demerol and some muscle relaxer and sent me home. It was the longest 6 hours I've ever experienced in my life.

Tuesday 01 February - Today, all I remember is eating ice cream and sleeping. 

Wednesday 02 February - Again, ice cream and sleeping. It also rained a lot. 

Thursday 03 February - Monkey won an award!!! He was so proud! Not only did he bring home an award, he brought his grade in Language Arts (or English/Reading) from a D to a B!!! We are so proud of him. Now we're just working on his math grade. Lets hope he can keep all of them up and maybe next 9 weeks he can make the honor roll! :-D

Friday 04 February - I cleaned out the "medicine cabinet" in our kitchen. This was some of what I pulled out. I ended up throwing a LOT of stuff away. Some of it I had no idea what we got it for. Some of the tubes of creams we had in there had been in there since the kids moved down here!! I figured that it was okay to throw them away. I also worked the cookie booth for Bugs Brownie troop. It was cold, it was rainy, and we were outside. We did end up selling quite a bit tho! There were a lot of people that gave to the Operation Cookie Drop, which is a fund to send cookies to deployed troops. Bug got to go to Night of Narnia at our church with her friend. She got to watch movies, eat pizza, and lounge around in her jammies, while I was freezing my tookus off! Something seems off.... 

{obviously not my picture either}

Saturday 05 February - Today, I'm not feeling very good. Bug and her little friend play "fashion model" most of the day, and Monkey has a friend come over too. Together the 4 of them manage to stay mostly out of trouble. I, on the other hand, decide that I want to watch my Netflix movie. I've been waiting for some time to get this movie. Something you guys might not know about me is that I grew up with horses. I LOVE horses. I MISS my horses. I also used to work at a race track as a hot walker and a groom. I "worked my way up" as they say. There is an undeniable energy behind the scenes of a race track. Of course you have your every day run of the mill stuff that goes on, but, when you here that bugle... man... it just does something to  you! Overall I give this movie 2 thumbs up! Not just because it's a horse movie, but because it's a great movie about determination, about heart, and about never giving up on what you believe in.

funny, I just cleaned out my medicine cabinet last week too! I threw a ton away.

I have not seen that movie...we need something to do tonite so maybe we'll go rent it!

The Bug said...

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well! I hope that this coming week is MUCH better.

One of my favorite authors is Dick Francis - writer of mysteries mostly set in the British horse racing world. I've never been to a horse race, but the whole industry is very fascinating to me!

Mimi said...

So sorry you're struggling with your health. I'll be praying for you.

Great job for your son's accomplishments.

Have a great week,

I LOVED Secretariat... growing up in Kentucky, I had no choice but to love horses... & love all things Secretariat ;)

I just cleaned out all my meds & vitamins too... wow... couldnt believe how far back some of them went

Michele said...

I cleaned out my medicine cabinet too,,,I took em all!! *L* J/K I usually keep them cleaned out pretty good.

CONGRATS to Monkey Man!!!! I'm glad he is doing so well.

Bug got you to work the cookie booth while she played,,,slick, huh?

Glad your headache is clearing up; sometimes new meds can do that. Hang in there, it will get better. I used to have bad headaches, traded them in for hot flashes! Sorry, not hot flashes but power surges!!!!! *S*


Loved the mohawk.

I have yet to see that movie, but I really really want to!

Your son's mowhawk is tall! Does he do it like that often. i'm gonna half to let my boy see it, he's never kept his long enough to get it that long.

Sorry you had a migraine. I get headaches often, but not bad enough to send me to the ER.

Blogged over from Sara''s hoping you are feeling better...NO fun feeling like that. Loving that mohawk (totally something my boys would want!). Last night we went to rent Secretareat but they had none to rent...we were sad, hopefully next weekend! And congrats to your son for his award and bringing up his grade, what a great accomplishment.
