:: This week has been an interesting one...Monday was spent playing catch up at work, after being gone for a week. That is always a bit of a doozy! Back to the grind stone.
:: Tuesday, I woke up with a migraine, and it got worse and worse as the day went on. Finally, at 4:30 pm, I couldn't take it any longer and had to go home. I was in bed by 5:00 with my two puppers, and that is pretty much where we stayed until 11:00 am Wednesday. This was definitely the worst migraine I've ever had...not sure why it was so intense, but I was not a fan! I tried every trick I know, and nothing helped. Finally went to sleep. I woke up this morning and thought it had gone away, but once I sat up I quickly realized that it was still there and not better. I ended up taking the morning off as well. Nicole, the girl who introduced me to essential oils, texted me -- I work with her hubby and he told her that I had a migraine. She told me to use the Panaway oil on my forehead and neck, and that actually helped quite a bit. Definitely took the edge off and made me able to function. Glorious!! I went in to work for the afternoon and then got my allergy shot and headed home.
:: This evening, I am diffusing my first oils in my new diffuser and it smells sooo good in here! And on top of that, the oils I chose are good for migraines and allergies. I did a mixture of peppermint, lemon, and lavender. Mmmm!
:: This weekend, Chris has a half marathon race!! He's a little nervous, since he hasn't done a race in awhile. He's also been splitting his focus between swimming and biking too, so we'll see how it goes. I think he is going to do great!! It is taking place in Spicewood, TX at a winery there. We are excited to get away and see what he can do!
