Ugh, ugh, ugh. Frustration. That's how I'm feeling with these migraines. Today is a doozie of a migraine. It started while I was out this morning. My daughter had a tennis lesson and it was about 40 degrees. I had to run to JoAnn for some more fabric for my husband's quilt. What? I'm actually making a quilt for my husband? I've only made 500 quilts and never made one for him? Well, those were all practice quilts so his would be perfect!

I went to JoAnn's and WalMart and then went back to pick up my daughter and BAM, the migraine started. I took some Tylenol/Codeine and the migraine got worse. Got home and took Ibuprofen and had lunch and laid down to rest and watch some Fons and Porter quilting on TV. Fell asleep for about 15 minutes and woke up feeling worse. Took some more Tylenol/codeine, watched some more TV, knitted a little, rested some more.

I've now taken some Flexoril.

I didn't get anything done today that I really wanted to do. So frustrated. This week was good so I guess the headache was just saving itself for a Saturday when I could stay home and not HAVE to do anything. I just wanted to play today. I have some fabric that is calling to me from the other room. It is calling loudly. You can probably hear it if you listen closely. My husband's t-shirts are calling too. They want me to cut them out so I can put the borders on them. He keeps hinting that a quilt in the summer isn't going to get much use.

Oh, well. I guess I will just rest.

Oh, and Happy 77th birthday Mom. Thanks for inspiring my LOVE/Obsession of quilting.

I sure hope your migraine goes away....I hate it when I have a fun day planned and wham...headache.

I have better luck relieving a migraine if I take the Flexeril at the same time as the pain med (tylenol with codiene). Just another option.
