Thank the Good Lord It's Friday

What a week. Not necessarily a bad week, but an interesting one.

Didn't get to the writing last night, but instead ate a great meal that hubby had prepared, vacuumed, did laundry, helped my daughter with her reading homework, took down the Christmas tree, and then read for awhile. I crawled into bed pretty darn tired, then woke up this morning at about 4:30 a.m. with a roaring headache (due to that nice fall and neck injury), popped three aspirin, rubbed the neck down with icy hot, and went back to sleep. I felt better when I woke up, but I'm still making a trip to the chiropractor today. Hubby is scheduled to go to the doc as his foot is actually worse than yesterday. Missy is doing better - she takes her medicine just fine as long as it's hidden in food, and the cat seems to have suffered no ill effects from the impromptu bath.

Since it's Friday, I'll keep it short - but wanted to show you some pics of the recent ice storm we had in Nebraska. This storm happened about 100 miles west of where I live, but it really caused havoc. Lots of people are still without power. Makes you very thankful for what you have.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Have a good and relaxing weekend Melissa.

    Sue :-)

  2. I hope your neck feels better. I have neck problems, and if I don't sleep right I get nasty headaches.

    Regarding the ice storm, we are getting highs near 50 hear. For those not keeping score, I live in the land of frozen tundra: Wisconsin. Think Ice Bowl game and frozen January breath.

    Noramlly it is 20 below with wind chill. I am thankful with a big THANK.

    Have a great weekend and hope you feel better.

  3. I'm so sorry about your neck. I hope the chiropractor helps. Whenever the chiro works on my neck, I get all emotional for the next few hours -- the release factor, you know?

    Feel better soon.

    Wow - intense ice. We have rain and it's inthe 50s today -- rather tranquil, but unseasonal.

    I'm on my way back to bed. I did Reiki on one of the cats this morning, so she's better -- but I'm not.

  4. PS Is your husband sure the foot's sprained? Although sprains can go up and down pain-wise for the first couple of weeks -- maybe he broke some of the small bones in the foot? I've done that a couple of times -- and they tend to get worse for the first few days. Glad he's going back to get it checked.

  5. Just got your comment on my blog -- Gout -- wow. Um, that's a slighly different course of treatment than for a sprain, isn't it? Poor guy -- it's very uncomfortable. I hope he (and you) feel better soon.

  6. Hey, Missy

    I hope you're feeling better. Have you seen a chiropractor?

    Thanks for sharing the link to those storm photos. I've never seen that much ice before that was not being stored in a tavern.

    Have a great weekend!


  7. Those pics are wild! They blew me and my son away.

    Relax this weekend, sounds like you need it! And I hope your husband is better, too.

  8. Have a great weekend, Melissa! If I were you, I'd stay in bed and read --lots! Just get up to eat ordered-in food and watch movies. But I know, life tends to interrupt plans like these. Oh well, enjoy....

  9. So beautiful, so destructive. As Frost said "Some say the world will end in fire, some say ice."

    Hope the trip to the chiropractor went well.

    There's a story in my family (before I was born) of my brother giving the cat a bath. Took 1 and a half boxes of band-aids from what I hear.

  10. Hope your weekend is relaxing! And your dh obviously knows how to help by cooking :-)

    Wow, those pictures are incredible. Reminds me of what we experienced during the Ice Storm of 98.

  11. Wow--some ice storm. Scary things those. Glad you are feeling a bit better. A traumatic first week to the year!


I love to hear from you!
