Homeward Bound

Note: This post was written in the wee, small hours of Tuesday morning. I have since arrived in the Lone Star State.

I am at LAX airport right now, sitting at my gate, waiting to board the red-eye home to Texas. I'll be spending the week at home doing a variety of fun activities that include wedding dress fittings, going to a bridal shower that some of my mom's friends are throwing me, and attending a reunion at a theatre that I used to work at in Houston.

eSuitor and I went to our church's Memorial Day picnic Monday. The weather was gorgeous--warm sun and cool air--a perfect Southern California day! The picnic was at a private park that the church rented. We got to catch up with friends and even got to ride a tilt-a-whirl. *Funsies!* The kid in me had (count 'em!) two snowcones--one was half orange-pinapple/half fruit punch, and the other was blue raspberry. Mmmm. (When you let the kid in you have two snowcones, it's not as bad as when grown up you has that many. You know kids--such fast metabolism!)

When we got back to eSuitor's place, I began to get one of those eyeball headaches that just wouldn't quit. I took a 45 minute nap and when I woke up, it was worse. I thought that maybe I needed some caffeine (as that usually nips my occasional headaches in the bud), so we hopped in the car to get some dinner and a diet coke, but in the car, I started to feel nauseous, and nothing sounded good. You know that somethin' ain't right with me when food of any kind lacks appeal. So we turned around and went back to his place. I decided to try to take another nap. Three hours later, I woke up feeling like a new woman. Thank You, Lord! I'm so glad I'm feeling better now, because traveling when you don't feel good is no fun. I think that all that time in the sun today did me in and made me a little dehydrated.

I'm on the plane now, typing away to my heart's content. I can't believe that my wedding is only 32 days away (not that I'm counting!) Time is a flyin'!

Um...eyeball headache and upset tummy is what I get, and miss Cherry told me that's a migraine. I don't get them often (Thank goodness!), but I do get them once in awhile. For me, they're triggered by sinuses, which is where the eyeball pain comes in. Did you get any blurred vision? I get that as well. Here's what helps me:

SLEEP (yay, that worked for you!)
Coffee (because of the caffeine)
Excedrin Migraine (also has caffeine, plus pain killers)

I'm glad you're feeling better, and I hope the airplane ride didn't trigger another one...

Have a fabulous time in Texas! I'm going to Cherry's last fitting with her on Thursday, and her shower is Saturday. FUN!

J, I have wondered when I get these if they are some type of migraine. Thankfully, I didn't get another one on the airplane. I do have blurred vision associated with my headaches sometimes. Interesting. It seems like the same things that help you are what also help me. Thanks for the tip about Exedrin Migraine. I'll have to go buy some of that to keep on hand. I don't get the headaches often, but maybe once every 2 or 3 months.

Have fun with Cherry!

Lots of happenings going on and the time will pass fast. Before long you'll be no longer a single lady.
