Weekend Schmeekend

I am not totally sure what happened to our weekend. I waged the battle with the migraine all damn day yesterday and lost. Badly. I finally came out a winner this afternoon at some point. I will be making an appointment with my doctor to review our options about the migraines. I've been on maintenance medicines before, and I've taken the Imitrex shots that make me feel like I've been run over by a bus. So I need to punt and figure out a new plan. Because as Cass put it, I can't be responsible for 4 other people and feel like ass. Amen.

I did manage to scrape myself off the couch long enough yesterday to go out to dinner with Doug at Longhorn Steakhouse last night. It was our first trip there and the food was quite good. Sad to say my watermelon margarita did NOT help the migraine, but it sure tasted good. Then we wandered over to TARGET to pick up some storage buckets for the girlie clothes we have. $145 later we left. For the love of Pete, why is it that every time we go to Target, we can't spend less than $100? And why is it that all I got was a lipstick, but the twins each got two pair of shoes, Drew new Spiderman light up sneakers, Meg two pair of shoes? Yeah, I don't get it either.

Today was the usual stuff~a family trip to BJ's, laundry, grocery shopping, lawn mowing. Tried to undo some of the damage the turkey has done to the yard. I told Doug I'm going to start knife throwing practice and see how long the turkey lasts. Ok, so that is totally laughable but I have to do something. All the nice mulch we put in the gardens has been completely torn up and thrown around the yard. I sense turkey on the menu this week.

Today did really bite because the older kids were so incredibly irritable and rude. I was ready to put them to bed at lunchtime. For the day. We kept them up late Friday night by going to meet with the new tenants and then taking them out to dinner (our kids, not the tenants. If the tenants buy the house, then I'll take them out to dinner), and I guess our babysitter kept them up a bit late last night, but holy cow were they bitchy. Grrr. I am hoping for a less cranky Monday.

I'm so sorry about all the migraines! I hope you feel better soon, and that the meds keep them at bay for a loooong time.

I have the same Target experience. It is not possible to walk out of that place for less than $100. I don't know why. The owner must be a marketing miracle or something. I, too, usually wander out with things for the kids. That pretty much happens everywhere. Hell, the DOGS usually end up more pampered than I do!

Since breaking up with Target I have to say that we've seen a let up on our budget...which is sad but true.

I am hoping for a fantastic week for you, migraine free.

i also have the target disease. though we did get out of there once spending undre $10, that was a miracle. and, typically the purchases are for the kids or the house and i get some mascara or lotion LOL i still heart target though.
oddly enough on the migraines--i was talking w/ my aunt this weekend and she too has them badly and is revisiting her dr as well for new treatment.
i hope you have a better week!

I hear you on spending for the kids and not myself. It seems easier to justify somehow.
