Headache from HELL!

I'm not certain exactly when or how it started, but by the time I went to bed last nite, I had developed a migraine headache from HELL. Pain so bad I could hardly hold my head upright.

Could it have been the fact that I hadn't slept at all Saturday nite; hanging around bus terminals in Orlando, Tampa and Clearwater, or maybe the fact that when I finally arrived home, I was too tired to sleep...... or was that bottle of champagne I consumed prior to going to bed the deciding factor?

The pain was bad enough to keep me awake most of Sunday nite and continued as I was preparing for work today. I walked the dogs and suddenly felt a few raindrops. It was starting to rain. I coaxed the dogs to "get moving" and by the time we came back inside, the rain had begun to intensify. I checked the morning news and the forecast was rain most of the day. That was the final straw.

I called in sick and slept most of the morning on the recliner.

It's now 4:00 PM and pouring. The headache is slowly starting to go away. I'm drinking champagne and eating crab rangoon...... a prelude to the Chinese New Year.

After all, it's the year of the dog...... and the pugs are of Chinese origin!

I didn't know pugs were Chinese! Well, so are pandas. Lots of cuteness comes from China, apparently! :-)

I hope you're feeling a lot better.

Hey Don...sorry about the migraine headache from hell, buddy. Damn! Sounds like no fun at all...but I hope you can feel the hugs I'm sending via this comment **HUGS**

And to top it all off...RAIN? WTF? Definitely some bad voodoo vibes working against you over the weekend or something... :( Glad you're feeling a bit better my friend.

Here's to the year of the dog! Pugs are just entirely too damn cute for their own good! See you soon the site as always...and appreciate the linkage!
