Better Then Yesterday !

I could have slept forever, and ever, and ever this morning.  Or it seemed like it could.  Rob left at 6:30 am, I was still in bed.  The phone rang at 7:30 am, I was still in bed.  I had to get up as the Aussies needed me.  Someone came to the door at 8:00 am, I wasn't ready for that either ... I could have slept, slept, slept.

Migraines knock the "heck" right out of a person.  Anyone that suffers with migraines will have no problem validating this point for me.  Mine seem to be triggered by weather changes, sometimes starting with a Sinus headache and moving up to a full blown Migraine, other times maybe not.

Life does not stop and wait for us one iota, so my day had to get going onwards to month end billing, which really wasn't too much at all.  The worse part of my morning was faxing over 20 some sheets in for payroll to realize after I had them all set and scanned that I hit "send" and the darn phone line had not been plugged into the fax machine !!!  Oh man I had to scan all those sheets, one by one, all over again.  Damn, damn, triple damn .... life does not stop there and reverse.

Onward went my day ...

I hand delivered one bill, then headed down to Saugeen First Nation's Gas Bar to meet Rob and get my Van gassed up, then passed him the other bill to hand deliver himself.

I got all the way back home to realize I had forgotten to stop at the Gateway Nursing Home, as the Nurse had called to say Mom would like some boxes of Kleenex dropped around if I could.  It just happens I had bought some for her 2 weeks ago and they had still been in my Van.  Off I went again ... and didn't I forget the other blouses I had gotten for her Saturday to take along for her  to try on.  Geez !!!

Bandit got to go along, and was pretty happy to get the attention from when we entered the building all the way up to Grandma's Room.  Before we left Grandma had to show him off to everyone around on her floor (there had been only a couple of others we had gotten to see).

I got back home to have a bit of a rest before it was time to get Dinner going.  Gayle had arrived to get some produce from the garden so we had a little chat while she was here.  After Gayle left, Mercedes helped me pick some Yellow Beans for our dinner, not that she was much help as she was trying to pilfer what she could for herself from the garden.

I had been whipping up our Dinner by the time Rob walked in around 6:30 pm.  Leftover Rosemary-Crusted Pork Tenderloin thinly sliced and heated in some Homemade BBQ Sauce, Garden Fresh Yellow Beans, cooked to perfection (this time around), and Basmati Rice.

My Paul called while I was getting our dinner together with promised he would have the boys call me before he took them back home from their visit.  I not only got a phone call, I got "First Day Back to School" Pictures too !!!  From Paul's two boys & Liz's three ... lucky me !

It is times like these that I really miss being so far away from them.

This afternoon I had been feeling a little melancholy reflecting back on when Paul was in school.  It did not matter where I worked, before I was hired I had always asked for the first day of school off so I could see my boys off and be home for them that first day.  It was very important to me, and something I really missed when it ended.  I continued to do this even when Paul was in High School.

This afternoon I also called the company who produces the Fresh Attitude Salads for Sobey's/Foodland.  They will be sending me a Coupon for a Foodland store as reimbursement for the spoiled salad.  Their Customer Service Rep was very approachable and nice.  I should be receiving it in the mail within the next 2 weeks.

I am beat, but better then Yesterday.  I am heading off to package peas for the freezer that Rob just blanched and podded for me.  Hopefully a fitful night of sleep ahead and an eventful day ahead tomorrow, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. I used to get weather pressure migraines when I was younger and now not so much just the odd one every now and then ! I do hope your migraine subsides fast and you get a good nights sleep ! You should be able to do your bushiness paper work on the computer and send it all that way, it would be easier and less time consuming for you ! Then all you would have to do is copy, paste and send ! take care and have a good day !

  2. Oh man, I spent the day in bed too. (No migraine, though, just pooped.) Love the photo of Bandit and Grandma.

    I was missing my boys today, too. I wrote a note to them on FB wishing them a good day and got a snarky reply from Youngest. Oh well... at least I don't miss him so much when he's like that! :)

    Hope tomorrow is better for you.

  3. I too find the day after a migraine I am so tired.

    Nice that you got to talk to the boys.


  4. Aww... I hope you're feeling better today, Cindy! (((Hugs))) I've never had a migraine, but headaches are bad enough, so I can't imagine the pain you're in. Would definitely suck the energy right out of you!

    That's great that you're receiving a coupon for the spoiled salad! :) Good customer service is sometimes rare now!

  5. Hope you are feeling better today Cindy.
    First day of school is often melancholy for me too. My youngest daughter sent photos of her youngest heading off for first day. I guess the others are "too cool" for first day photos, LOL.
    My eldest grandsons don't start until tomorrow (both highschool) and both go in for different times. The eldest only has to pick up a few credits to finish his grade 12 and then he's off to the army, boohooboohoooboooohooo.

  6. Hi Cindy~ I also took off work, no matter where I worked *smile*, to be there for my kids on the first day of school.... to this day, I still get melancholy on the first day back to school......I always made my kids peanut butter cookies for a snack when they got home:) Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines

  7. Bandit always seems to be just of the right disposition with people. Not every dog would do well in a nursing home visit.

  8. I hope you get some quality sleep soon Cindy. Nice to be back in the blogosphere after our trip and catch up with you!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
