Monday Update 10/22/07

Up the stairs... down the stairs... up the stairs... down the stairs.... Who needs a stairmaster when I can just go the gauntlet to the attic and basement all day long?

Are you scratching your head wondering "What the heck is she talking about?"

Let me start at the beginning...

I had a chiro appointment bright and early at 8:05am on Saturday. Who in their right mind makes an appointment THAT early?! What can I say? Woke up with a migraine, but forged forward to the shower. Showered and tried to get dressed without the lights on. I was dragging myself from room to room, trying to function with little success. The chiro office doesn't open until 8am, so I had to wait until then to reschedule. Appointment rescheduled til 10am. I took a second Excedrin Migraine and laid down. When I got to the chiro, the headache was down to a dull roar (thank goodness!). I made an observation as I left the chiro's office. Usually the adjustment inflames the nerves and I have pain for 20minutes to a couple hours afterwards. The doc says that's normal. When I left the office on Saturday, I noticed the nerves had recovered before my feet reached the front door. Yay for me!

It was such a nice day on Saturday (in the 70's... pretty warm for this time of year). I decided to take advantage of the nice weather. You'd think I'd do something fun... but no... I cleaned/organized the garage. I managed to cut the number of boxes in half. I found 5 stash boxes that I unpacked. For those who took a guess on the number of stash boxes... That's 5 so far! This is also where the stairmaster comment comes in. The rest of the boxes I toted up to the attic and down to the basement. Up and down, up and down! On Sunday, my thighs and calves hurt SO bad! Even today, they are still sore. I spent 12 hours moving, organizing, and unpacking boxes. I was thrilled to get my bedroom closet somewhat organized and be able to close the door. I found more stash boxes in my closet, but won't count them until I unpack them - easier to keep track that way. By 11pm, I was tired but jazzed up because I had been on the move for so long. Time to unwind...

On Sunday, I finished painting two of the kitchen drawers. Two down, two to go! Since my legs were sore, I decided to take it easy. I spent most of the day stitching - Yes, stitching :) I stitched one Christmas ornie and started a second one, both gifts for exchanges. I like the pattern so much, I may do one for myself also.

Ouch on the migraine. :( Been there, done that and continue to.

Have you seen the doctor about the migraines? If you are getting more than two a month you should. There are some good meds that can help tremendously! I know since I often get migraines and have had up to 6-8 a month!

The unpacking sounds like it is coming along. Slowly but surely. I'm glad you were able to get some R&R stitching in as well.

Hard to do anything with a migraine... I love following your progress with your moving and how you make this house your home ;-)

Moving house is a great work out. Not sure you'd want to keep it as a full time excercise routine though.

Thank goodness you got some stitching in! I didn't want to have to do an intervention :)

Well, at least you've lived to tell about it..as they say in the South!! My gracious, Meari! You are one incredible person to get all that done...I need a rest just reading about it.
Hugs,

PS: Stitch more, migraine less...:)

Does the chiro work on your migraines? Moving is a lot of work but still very nice to know it's all yours. Try to get more stitching in.

Sorry about the migraine, I know those things KILL! Great job on all the unpacking, however try not to move Rome in a day, okay?! I know you want to get your house unpacked, and there is such a sense of accomplishment when it gets there, but don't overdue!!!!

Okay enough chewing out LOL.
