Monday Madness......

Madness my peeps because I have another severe headache. I have suffered with headaches since I was 17. I have to take a beta-blocker twice a day and have migraine medication when it gets bad. Well guess who didn't get her's refilled and had to suffer most of the weekend? yep, me, so the most I could do was dull it enough to go about my day. And mother nature is hot, humid, and steamy which really makes my temples pound. So I called the pharmacy this morning and I'll pick it up on lunch. At Saturday's meeting my sponsor presented me with my six month chip. She's an awesome lady who always gives me enough rope to hang myself, then reels me in and gives me a soft place to land. We enjoy working together and she will celebrate 21 years this Saturday. It's an honor to have her by my side during this journey. After the meeting I was taking with a lady who remembers the first night I walked through those doors. I told her I remember her saying to me, "I wish you could feel how awesome I feel", and now I've experienced some of that awesomeness too! We had a young lady who was there for her first time on Saturday. She was wide eyed and just trying to take it all in. I wish there was a way to give new comers a sneak peek into the future, so they could see the promises at work. It would keep them coming back. After I got home on Saturday, I gave my coin to my husband. For walking these first six months with me. It's been a series of ups and downs, but even on it's worst day it's no where near what it was last year at this time. My two youngest and I went shopping for school shoes and supplies. They were very excited about the shoes. Grace wanted the black Converse high tops that only came in boys sizes but settled on pink Converse tennies as she thought they were a bit more girly. Sam picked out some awesome shoes, and we managed to survive the nuthouse Target was and finished with school supplies. We finished the evening at my bestie's house with a delicious dinner. And after a few snags, we are finally getting the frig. tomorrow. We had a call on Friday that we might have to wait for 3 or more weeks, but they were able to give us the floor model and deliver even earlier than what was scheduled. Thank goodness because the current frig. is really just hanging on by a thread. My oldest has finished his job at the fair. He had a blast and is very darkly tanned. I think he is looking forward to sleeping in on Tues, and we all are just trying to survive this heat. Since we have no control over it, I'm trying to focus on other things, like my daughter's upcoming birthday, and registering them for school tomorrow. So Monday is full of madness, mainly my madness at this stupid headache but it's also filled with good things, and isn't that the way life should be? Balanced.......
