^^ 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.
