The CrOoKeD Post

This is how our day has been … lounging on the couch, watching movies, with a cozy blanket – Miriam, not even dressed; me, not dressed properly for going beyond my house anyway!!
We’re kind of in an sideways mood – and hence, I’m leaving my pictures from today sideways instead of going back to crop them the right way!  You’ll just have to tilt your head a little to the left to see them properly:

 ^^ BJ:  if you look closely at the far bookshelves, you will see my NEW, lovely P-E-A-C-E stocking holder’s temporary home!!  I’m still tweaking … but I love them SO MUCH  – and more so, that you thought of ME!!  🙂  

The rest of my living room looks like this right now.  SOMEONE should really pick up around here.  “MAID!!  Oh, MAID???”   Hmmm, she’s not answering right now.  *hrumph*

 So, last night the migraine that has been under the surface since Tuesday, I’m sure, finally manifested itself at full force.  😦  I came home from church – crawled into my bed – and didn’t come out until 1 a.m.  And that was just to put Miriam into her crib from where she had fallen asleep on Dan who had fallen asleep on the couch, to take a second dose of migraine meds, and to get a big glass of water (<< NOTE PLEASE:  Melanie!!). 

I dozed fitfully all night, pondering why in the world my recent migraines have been SO horrible that even the prescription meds don’t seem to touch them.  😦  Guess I need to go back to keeping a migraine journal to track what is triggering my headaches so I can avoid them, if at all possible?!

Anyway, woke up feeling a little better – just as if I had a “normal” headache, which is much less painful than what I’d dealt with all night.  Today I’m still achy – but at least I can go to work this afternoon and then my older children’s band & choir concert (hopefully that won’t re-trigger the migraine! ha!!).  🙂 

As I’d pretty much skipped breakfast, the thing that sounded the best to me for lunch today was a comforting soup.  Anna has been home from Monday thru Wednesday with a stomach bug, so we were all out of chicken noodle soup – but I remembered my SPECIAL STASH of German foods, which included my ultimate COMFORT FOOD “Eiermuschel Suppe” (an egg noodle soup) that my Oma always made for my Opa and I as an appetizer for lunch. 

I have 2 precious mixes of this soup (which are actually Andrew’s – a gift from my mom who got them from a friend in Germany – because he loves it too!) that I’ve been saving for a “special occasion” – but I think today merits a little “special” treatment and TLC.
I’m feeling better already!
Have a nice day.
