toffee crumbs in my bed

i had a migraine last night.
they sneak up on me once or twice a year.
never at convenient times of course.
it all starts with the white spots in my eyes.
at which point i must pop some sort of over the counter pill,
banish myself to a dark place,
and try to sleep it off.
fortunately, sean was on his way home early so he stopped by to pick up the pork loin.
they went to the store for dinner supplies.
extra tasty.
by the time they returned all was well in the head department.
a coke is always a good way to seal the healing deal of migraine invasion.
although bree did have a very coaxing offer of caffeine patches?
after our tummies were filled with enchilada and salad (with poppy seed dressing i might add, mmm), mom and grandma brought out tasty souvenirs from their recent trip to thailand.
butter cookies with toffee crumbs.
homemade from the shop of an old friend there.
as i ate i realized there were no nutrition facts listed on the box.
absent any labels of any sort.
this led me to eat more.
b/c as all goddesses know,
no nutrition facts label, no calories.
we almost ate the entire box.
then it was off to bed with angels and demons.
(i surely hope you're reading with us)
an early night while sean cleaned up the kitchen.
and for the 2nd time in our marriage i was fast asleep before he even got to bed.

Sounds like it was a good night despite the migraine. They are the worst!

You've got a good guy there! Migraines are no fun, that's for sure. I don't get 'em, but Dave does. He takes caffergot, which seems to work great for him. (mixture of caffeine and ergotamine)

Hope you go a loooong time between episodes!

SO sorry on the migraine- happy that you have a good husband man to take care of stuff when you're down and out

What a horrible beginning to a beautiful evening. I am glad that your migraine went away and you were able to enjoy your dinner with your son and husband.
