This week {and last} we've had icy weather and snow.  People all over were fussing about snow and us getting it. 

snow day

Yada Yada Yada.

I love the snow.  It's beautiful and fun and beautiful but it does cause migraines.  Some way the sun reflects off the snow and bounces back into my head feels like torture.  I can feel it right behind my eyes.  It hurts so bad that it causes my ears to even ache and neck.  SO with this snow came not only a snowman made by Ninja Gurl but a terrible migraine as well. 

I think banging my head against the wall would have been like a pillow fight compared to this migraine.  I shut the blinds all over the house and had ice packs, etc...  I spent Thursday in bed in torture just wanting to poke my eyes out.   Lord a Mercy, I wouldn't wish a migraine on my own worst enemy...if I even had one.

Friday morning I saw my lovely psychologist so that meant I had to leave the house and guess what I did?  I had to wear my sunglasses the whole time I was out today.  I did look rather funny walking at Walgreens waiting for my prescription to be ready for pick-up but you gotta do what you gotta do.


So the next time we get some snow and ice and want to fuss please remember that it is WINTER.  I called a bad winter this summer and now, perhaps, it's coming true.  Sorry about that.

DO you want to build a snowman?
