Working in a Factory Eight Days a Week

Oy. What a weekend.

For starters, I'm pretty sure I figured out what was causing my migraine. Aaron started us all on some health supplements that we were not suppose to be allergic to. After taking it for two weeks, I had my six day migraine. Then we ran out and the migraine went away. We got more in Thursday and Aaron gave me a double dose that night. I woke up Friday with the migraine. So, obviously, it was contaminated.

I did some rooting around in their website and found they consider the supplement to be gluten-free, by an organization's standards -- and I've never heard of the organization. Huh. Go figure.

In any case, I am refusing to take that stuff and Aaron's really offended. Men. Gah. You'd think he'd be rather thankful for the financial savings.

Friday night the boys had Their First Sleep Over Ever. And they loved it. Especially Darwin, who kept screaming teeeeeep ooooooobeeerrrrr!! teeeeeep ooooooobeeerrrrr!!


All the boys did really well (expect for the excited! screaming! and! the! excited! screaming!).


I even had a chance to get caught up on some stuff -- and I even have my box ready to ship later today for my mini swap (I know, a week late; but my swapping partner and her family have been ill so back off, we can change our deadline if we want). I took photos last night in horrible light, hoping for better light this morning. Well, that didn't quite work out so well as we are getting rain! Followed by sleet! Followed by two to six inches of snow! Gah.

And I posted the gluten-free chocolate truffle cake recipe up on my recipe site, for those of you who are interested. Yum.

And my very good friend, Marsha, did my blog conversion this weekend too. Thanks Marsha! You totally rock!

Okay, I think I need a nap now.

Forget the financial savings...he should be happy you're not in heinous pain anymore. The sleepover looked fun. I was reminded of a time we had a slumber party for my b-day, and my mom started an ice cream fight (she had to replace the kitchen curtains...talk about excited screamning!)

Glad you're over the headache. And the teepover sounds fun. Well in that way I'm glad its not me fun.

Welcome back to the world of the migraine free. I'm so glad martinis have no wheat :-)

Sleepover? You brave, brave woman... Did you agree to it in the deliurium of the last week?

Hi, boys! I know those little sleep-overers... glad to hear they all had fun.

luckybeans said...

HAHAHA! I KNEW you were allergic to something. HAHAHA!

God, I'm evil. I would hate to have me for a friend.

But the teeeeb ooooobbeeeer sounded great. Brave woman. Beware lest it become a habit.

ooo, by the way my word verification just spelled "egypt". I've been wondering if it would ever randomly generate words. Maybe it's trying to tell me something...

amy h said...

Yeah, I'd stay away from those supplements then. Unless you're up for another migraine experiment just to prove your point to Aaron. :)

kristi said...

Teeeeeep ooooooobeeeeeer! (I just wanted to say that.) I'm glad everyone had fun, and that the guest children's devil horns didn't sprout again while they were there. ;)

I dread sleepovers. I mean, I don't mind when Max goes elsewhere for them, but having an extra kid over here is EXHAUSTING. So you had four of them screaming? And after a migrain...yikes.

Still, I'm glad they have fun.

MéLisa said...

You are either extremely brave or out of your ever loving mind! Glad that it all went well & Aaron didn't find your curled up in a ball in the corner!

kirsty said...

Sleepovers?? Do you want ANOTHER migraine??? Interesting to hear that "Gluten Free" is open to interpretation.

LLA said...

You're a far braver woman than I - the thought of a sleepover makes me cringe, and to attempt one while fighting of the remnants of the migraine from hell? I bow to you....

lera said...
