5 Question Friday

I woke up with a raging headache this morning - I get them from time to time - in horrible migraine form - have had them since high school and they're horrible. I can't take anything for them during the day because I'm by myself with the kids and I absolutely can not function when I take them. So I plug on through and try to make it through the day. I laid on the couch this morning with the two babies and a hot compress on my head for almost 2 hrs because I could actually get up and partly function for the rest of the day. However it's close to 5 now - my headache is alittle better but better or not - WE GET A DATE NIGHT TONIGHT!!! I'm so estatic it's not funny! We haven't been out by ourselves on a date since our anniversary in June. I'm so ready. I really want to take a weekend and go somewhere but first things first.

Since I can hardly see straight and my vision is blurry out of my left eye because of my migraine it's a good thing it's Friday and time for 5 Question Friday. I'm not sure I could muster up anything more than random questions and answers right now.

Head over to see Mama M. at My Little Life to join in on the fun!!!!

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

Children's Hospital hands down. When Lucas was a baby we spent a good bit of time there with RSV and meningitis and they are wonderful. I absolutely adore what they do for those little babies that are so innocent and helpless.
2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?

At this point this year they're a pain in my butt however most of the time we are very happy about them. We've had more snow in South Carolina than we've had in years and have had way too many snow days already - after being snowed and iced in for 6 days I don't want another for a very very long time and I'd rather not be still making school lunches into July either.
3. What talent did you wish you had and why?

I wish I could sing. Doesn't have to be a fabulous money making voice but I wish I could just sing so I didn't sound foolish when I was doing so. Wishing Wishing Wishing.

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?

News! I used to be obsessed and always have CNN or FoxNews on 24 hours a day. Now I can't get Caillou, Barney and Max and Ruby off my tv long enough to watch the weather.
5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)

If you asked me this about 4 years ago I'd have said an amaretto sour however those of you that know me and have been around for a while know that my husband has battled alcoholism for years now so we don't drink. I am proud to say he is now in recovery and doing great but out of respect for him I don't drink either.

I have migraines as well and they are miserable. I, like you, need to just take meds and sleep it off in the dark and silence (which is rare with kiddos). I hope you feel better and have a blast on your date night. We never do them either. Last time we did, I told Drew I felt like I was in high school again. Made me want to go parking. :) hahaha!

Kristin said...

Ouch on the migraine! :( Hope you fun on date night though! I like these random question things. I need to play! I used to love amaretto sours too, but I don't drink anymore either. And I really wish I could sing better too!

Vicky said...

I'm impressed at how much you are tackling when I know you don't feel up to any of it! But I wouldn't let a date night keep me down either :) I truly don't drink much anymore, but anything with amaretto totally was my favorite!

Kelly said...

Sorry you had a migraine. they are no fun!
I wish we had 'snow days' but we always have snow, so we never get them here.

Kelli said...

congratulations to your husband for battling a very silent disease. I am with you on snow days, it's like we love to hate them or something....

Julie said...

I agree on the children's hospital. I'm glad your hubby is doing so well! Hope you're migraine is gone & you had a great date night!

Stephanie said...

I hope your head is feeling better and you were able to enjoy your night out!

Have I mentioned lately how amazing you are for standing by your husband through his struggles?

Annie said...

Wow...good for your husband for being in recovery...and good for you for supporting him!!

misguided mommy said...

i'll drink your share of amaretto maybe it will make my day good!

Erin said...
