Did you know that Monday was National Dessert Day?! I saw it on the news early that morning and made sure that I celebrated. Check out this scrumptious Brownie Lover's Brownie dessert from O'Charley's. I tried to eat it all, I did, but only managed about half.
I started out the week with the migraine of the decade. I have always gotten headaches, ever since I was a little girl, but they have slowly become few and far between over the years. I think I'm getting them less, but I also think I have learned how to identify triggers and prevent them from becoming debilitating little punks.
More often than not, when I do end up with one, the headache comes on in late afternoon or evening and I can just sleep it off. That's preferable if I'm going to have to endure one. Sunday, however, I woke up with a full-fledged migraine. I napped as much as I could during the day, took meds around the clock, and literally didn't emerge from the dark, cold dungeon of my room until 7 pm. I'm pretty sure I dropped 5 pounds too since I wasn't sleeping it off, I wasn't able to eat or keep anything down.
The one good thing that comes from a migraine of this magnitude is that when I awake the next morning and I do not have a headache, I'm so much more appreciative and thankful to God for a head that doesn't hurt!
I'm always a little behind in the entertainment world - music, movies, and television. So, I'm not sure how long this Taylor Swift song has been out, but I heard it this week and loved it.
I learned a very important lesson this week when making my weekly Walmart run. The next time the government is shut down, DO NOT go to the store on the same day it re-opens. The place was a madhouse. I'm pretty sure I ran over a half a dozen people with my shopping cart and bumped into another half dozen. :-/
And last but not least, I am so thankful for the group of folks I work with. Isn't this the sweetest thing ever? I am truly blessed.
I hope last week was a fabulous week for you and that the one coming up is even better. :)
As always, thanks for reading.
