How I Spent My Weekend


I'd like to say part of this is because of my headache, but....it isn't.








It was glorious. But then Sunday rolled around. And I paid for it.


You know what? Still worth it.

Did anyone beat my weekend?

Grumble Headache Grumble


So, as I wrote about last week, I had a headache the weekend before. What I didn’t blog about, though, was how it came back on Wednesday and lasted the next 4-5 days. It was mostly on the right side of my face/head (though it jumped to the left one night).

t’s also why I was less active in the blogger/twitter world, in case anyone noticed or missed me (doubtful).
  
On Thursday, I went to the minute clinic, and was diagnosed with either a migraine or a sinus infection or something more serious but less likely.  




I also get super woozy when we start talking about arteries or anything blood related and I almost passed out


She gave me antibiotics in case it is a weird sinus infection and sent me on my way. On Friday, my eyes were still aching and my head/neck hurt.  I saw Boyfriend.
I gave up on doctors after this experience 


I started to feel a little bit better Saturday/Sunday. The pain felt like it was coming from my neck more, so I’m thinking maybe I pulled it somehow very badly, because I googled and it looks like a neck muscle can cause pain all over one side of your head including your forehead and eye.


I’m considering going to a doctor. We’ll see.

Sigh.

Has this happened to anyone else? And before anyone comments with scary advice about how I’m having ministrokes  or tumors or aneurysms or any equally horrifying things, this is not accompanied by a fever or dizziness or blurred vision or nausea/vomiting or disorientation.

Thanks bunches.

Maybe a Bad Chocolate Thing


So last weekend, Boyfriend and I were together on his carb day. As I referenced last week, I baked some awesomesauceness. I made homemade thin mints!

Sure, I burned one batch:



But I got the hang of it and made more:


After I baked them, I had to cover them in melted chocolate:

I’m going to be honest, the covering-with-chocolate thing was a disaster. I tried to draw a picture of it, but it just looked like poo.  I would have taken a photo, but every inch of everything was covered in chocolate, and I didn’t want to get my phone dirty.

The finished product:

It was worth the mess though, because they were freaking delicious.
  
We ate them Saturday night. I woke up Sunday morning and there was…badness.

I am a wuss.




I panicked a little
To sum up, I had a headache. It definitely wasn’t caused by chocolate. Definitely not.

History of the Gettysburg Address

Time for another Mayor Gia Story!  Well, since it was President’s Day on Monday, I thought it might be fun to re-imagine a conversation with Abe and Mary. 


Yep, it's Civil War style Boyfriend and Gia.



















Yep, that's pretty much how it happened. But if you're a teacher or parent, I wouldn't start telling your kids about this version. It's...uh...too controversial. Yeah, that's it. Controversial.
