Making a Face

Storm's Coming

I woke up with a wicked headache this morning. It's probably due to the impending storm, but it may be because Rich and I have been staying up late watching TV. Or maybe it's because I spent three wonderful hours perusing a musty smelling Goodwill yesterday morning. Another possible cause is a spice or other food-related trigger in the delicious Guey Teaw Kaek (curry noodle soup with tofu and potato chips) I had at Thai Noodle House last night. Regardless of what caused it, my head really hurt when I woke up.

So I took meds (Imitrex and Zofran) and laid back down. I was supposed to drive Rich to work early in the morning, but he sat patiently watching the news while I drifted in and out. He was so good I could barely see the smoke that was coming out of his ears. Finally I took a couple of sips of coffee (which promptly made me even more nauseous) and we headed out. I felt pretty bad most of the drive there and about half of the drive back. Then the meds kicked in and I started feeling better.

When I got home, the coffee tasted fine and now I feel pretty good. I feel a little tired and spacy, either from the headaches or from the meds. But basically I feel fine.

G will be home soon.
