Ringing in the New Year... ugh.

I'm not feeling especially bright about the shiny New Year right now. Yesterday I developed a migraine, which I thought I had under control by evening. We're not big party people and spent New Year's Eve quietly at home watching movies. Unfortunately, today the monster chose to rear it's ugly head again. I have taken more than my usual dose of my migraine medication and the pain is still lurking. I threw in some ibuprofen for good measure, and I just took some Benadryl so that I might get a bit of sleep this evening. I have no idea what triggered this migraine, which makes it doubly frustrating.

We are still waiting for a court date for our adoption. I read some troubling discussion online about some families who have been waiting for more than 10 weeks and still don't have a court date scheduled. That is definitely not helping with the migraine situation.

I guess I need to remember that in the big scheme of things, we're talking about weeks... although right now it seems like an eternity. We will bring home our daughters in 2009, in God's perfect timing. That will make it a very bright year indeed.

But I still wish my head didn't hurt so much.

Paula, I suffer from migraines too. The best thing I have ever done is to try acupuncture. It has helped me so much! I get them very rarely now and they aren't as strong as they used to be. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it! Happy New Year
