Five Question Friday 1/29/2010

I woke up at 4am with the becoming very familiar thought "I'm gonna wake up with a whopper of a headache".  Sure enough when I woke up my head was pounding.  It wasn't quite my normal migraine so I thought that perhaps it was a sinus headache so I happily swallowed a sinus pill.  Three hours later I was in excruciating pain.  I am not a baby by any means but the pain I had in my head, on a scale of 0-10 was at least a 7.  It actually made me cry.  I was useless to the boys and I felt terrible that I was so unavailable.  Things eventually got better but Aidan wouldn't nap and I never got to really rest.  I spent about 6 hours in a foggy fog of hurt.  Darren came home a bit early, bless his heart.  He made dinner.  We just ate.  I am taking the easy way out and jumping on board Five Question Friday.  My brain still feels very unstable.
1. Would you ever vacation alone? 
I like to think that I would.  I like to think that I would go somewhere for a couple of days to read and write.  But, I think I would miss my boys.  I think I'd rather go somewhere as a family and allow myself time alone to do some reading and writing.  That way I get the best of both worlds!

2. Do you go the speed limit?  
I try.  I'm much more aware of the pesky thing, the speed limit, when the boys are in the van with me.  If it's just me I tend to lose myself in the music on the radio and will glance down to see the speedometer and say "Oh shit".  It never quite feels like your going as fast as you are. 

3. Why did you start blogging/following blogs?  
I've always enjoyed reading and writing. 
With all the new technology these days it's a fantastic way to challenge myself and to step outside my comfort zone.  It has been an AMAZING journey thus far.  I enjoy the blogs I currently follow because either they are completely opposite of me or strangely the same.

4. Where do you shop for yourself?  
Last spring/summer I went on a crazy shopping spree at Forever 21.  I love their t-shirts and tops.  And honestly I'm a thrifty girl of late.  It's been awhile since I've paid for a "new" anything.  Second hand is just as good if not better.  Better because the item is already past the breaking in stage, things fit so comfy and the chance of shrinking it the first time you wash it, not a concern at all.

5. What was the song that you danced your first dance with your spouse to at your wedding...or...what song would you like your first dance to be to?
Come What May
- The Motto of our marriage.

Hey there, hope the pain has mostly gone from the migraine. No fun, I know. Almost makes you feel you are in an "Alice in Wonderland" scenario. Bugger! Your hubby is a "keeper". Tell him for me he is a sweetheart. Love and hugs. Feel better.
