Winter Drumline - there is nothing like the sound of banging drums, flouresent lights and screaming children to set off a migraine. But how do you NOT attend when two of your kids are in? I love to watch, and hear the sounds of the drums. The formation of the bands. But boy does it ever send me running for my little box of pills.

These pics were actually taken during a parent practice. NIIIICE, Marisa. This is her first year on tenors. She is pretty good. Their entire show is actually coming together quite well. This past week, they placed second; won best cymbals, and best pit, which is where Chrisarella is playing this year. She isn't sure if she likes it yet or not.

As you can see from the pic below, she doesn't like me to take her picture. And as I forgot my camera on Saturday, I only have pics on my phone. The one's I have of her are not friendly. Next show, I promise not to forget camera.

I need blogger /Youtube/teenager help. You can actually go visit their Youtube video by just typing in CNS drumline and getting it yourself. i can't figure it out. I'm sure it's relatively simple; but - whatever. By the way, video does them no justice.

Back to the resting place for today. Cuddling with my little guy; he came home with a headache and fever yesterday. Poor little man. Oh, and a minor break from the winter blizzard for an hour today. oh yeah.

Hope you are well and pain-free.

Hammer Nail Pictures, Images and Photos

Need I say more? The abortive didn't work last week. Monday I saw my pain doc and left after having two occipital blocks. I haven't been much for activity since Saturday. That is, unless it requires using the potty. That is about the extent of my action the past few days. I feel like someone has tried to remove my brain from the inside of my head by using a straw and a jack-hammer. No luck.

I am exhausted. But I must say, this is the first bad boy that has taken me down this bad in a long time. My cryo's seem to work well along with the preventatives. Now, I am due to get another date with my doc in the surgical suite for the cryo again. The problem is this; they moved into their new place, and did NOT take the machinery needed for such procedure. So I'm just waiting to hear from them to tell me when and where they plan on doing this. This block isn't going to last long.

Hope you are migraine-free.
