Crafty, Achey Me

Despite the non-stop head pounding that seems to occupy my time; I have made myself busy with one of my favorite stand-bys - repurposing. This cute shelf has been redone again by moi, and is now in Cinderisa's room. She is in need of organization. Her room is a work in progress.

Anyway, this is how the shelf turned out after I added the pretty scrapbook paper and glazing. It has a very aged looked to it; you know, the one that people pay loads of money for and women get.
While it was setting up and drying, Frankie was looking at it, and starting picking at it, saying, "it's dirty."!!!! He obviously didn't get it. I had to explain to him that it was supposed to look that way.
Once it was dry, (and he was done picking away), I put it in her room, and put a few things on it. She fell in love with it once she saw it. That put a smile on my face - I made my child happy. Which reminds me, I need show you what I did to Christina's mirror. She's sleeping right now, it'll need to wait.
Here's my dilema: CONSTANT never ending migraine. again. What. is going On? I'm afraid I'm going back where I started, ooh, I really don't like going there.
As I lay in bed on Saturday night, peacefully sleeping, I was suddenly jarred awake at 3 with the picks and rods shooting out the top of my head. They came so fierce from the left and right; it was awful, but I had the lyrics from Queen going over and over in my head at the same time - "THUNDER BOLTS OF LIGHTENING, VERY VERY FRIGHTENING ME!" Over and over, the pain came and the words to the song came with it.

Today, I think I'm going to call my doctor and look into some infusion for this week. Ugh, more drugs. I've been icing and using my abortive; which has rendered useless. not good.

Hey, good news: the man is here to put my stove in. yipee.
