David gave me this amazing water color of the girls and me for Christmas. It was taken from the photo posted here. The last few days, I have felt like the painting me.. like a shadow of myself.

Last week I had two or three migraines... this week just one.. but it left me incapacitated for two days. The pain was so intense that I went to bed when Stephen got home from school, and stayed there until this morning (getting up only to be sick..ugh). Today, I could hardly move. Stephen came home during his free periods so I could go back to bed and Joyce came over and with a latte and baked me some scones while we watched "Bend It Like Beckham" (which she rented and brought over).. then got the girls up from their nap so I could go back to bed and watched them until Stephen got home from school. Yeah.. I pretty much have the best husband and the best Joyce in the whole world. Everyone should have a Joyce in their lives. I have not been this sick with pain for about.. two years I think... I can't help but be nervous that this is just the beginning of a return to the hell I lived with these freakin' migraines when we were up north. The hell that was somehow lessened by pregnancy and my new life with the girls. I suppose I need to go to the doctor.. or nutritionist (thanks Kate :) .. this can not continue..

Now onto a new topic that has me genuinely aggravated. What the cuss NBC?! Seriously!??! Jay Leno needs to hit the road and you need to leave Conan alone and let him do his thing. I can't believe that Jay might actually be going back to hosting The Tonight Show. He sucks so bad at 10pm it is unbearable to watch.. what makes you think moving him back to 11:35 is going to make things any better? He had his chance.. he is finished..let it go for cryin' out loud. It's flippin' embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as Fallon's flounderings at taking Conan's place. I have said my peace..piece..? Either way.. take that.

So sorry about the migraines. Hugs to Stephen and Joyce for being there for you. This afternoon I got a call from one of my young mom friends whose husband was out of town. She just had a baby about a month ago and is starting back with the migraines. One hit today and she was afraid to take the meds without another adult there. So I just returned from entertaining three sweet, busy little girls. We made snow flakes for two hours! The meds and an hour nap seemed to help her, praise God! Not quite sure how she does it. So glad Joyce came to your aide. Love you sweet girl. Praying for relief.

That message was from Mary if you didn't figure it out!

Dear Sarah, I have so much enjoyed your blog with all your news. I am so sorry about those migraines and hoping they were going away. You have been hit with some bad ones. Joyce is a wonderful friend. My holidays were wonderful with all my gals and grand children here at one time or another. I just got back from Judy's and attending Taylor's 16th birthday party. It was a very busy week with attending wrestling matches and gymnatic practice. I did come home with a cold but am much better now. I loved your Christmas card. Take care and see the Doc about your headaches soon. Love you all. G-Grandma

Man, oh man. I am so sorry to hear about your migraines. I'll be praying that you get some relief from them. I've never had one but have heard they can really make you miserable.
