Called out of work sick today. I woke up with a headache and just couldn’t take the light in my eyes. I suffer with migraines, I have for years. They are not as frequent or as bad as they used to be (before menopause) but they still happen occasionally. When I get them I have to basically halt all activity and lay still, eyes covered and silence. I take prescription migraine meds, but I find that the OTC Excedrin Migraine works just as good if not better sometimes. Today it was one Excedrin and some down time and I was okay. But it wasn’t until about 9:30am that I could really function again.
It was the first time I have called out sick from work. I felt bad, but I just couldn’t go in like that. Hopefully they had enough people to cover. I notice that some people call out quite frequently..I am not like that. If I call out it will always be that I am legitimately ill or something really serious came up and I had to call out. I hate when I’m on shift and someone I depend upon calls out and I know it’s just because they wanted a day off.
I went to the barber shop this afternoon and got my hair cut and edged. It feels so good to have a spiffy new fresh haircut. I always enjoy the feeling it gives me. Plus as you all know I love my visits to the Loaded Dice Boston Barbers immensely. I wrote a description of the place out to someone today, and realized again how fucking cool that place IS. Although I still miss Johnny, my old regular barber who isn’t there anymore for some really fucked up reasons. I hope he’s doing okay wherever he is.
So tomorrow is Friday. I have no plans except for dinner with my parents (steak!) and am just going to chill for the weekend. I hope maybe a trip to the beach will be in store if the weather is good enough. Today it was 63 degrees F when I went by the big digital sign on the way to Rochester. Yup, 1:32pm and 63’…you can’t beat that for February 25th of any year! I hear from the news guys on TV that it was a record setter for most of New England.
I plan to do some writing this weekend. I will give you another chapter of the DC story. I’m keeping the story concise and a little bit in brevity as I plan to write out the longer more detailed version later. But still the story is fun and the best part is it really happened! I’m still working on digging up some of the photographs from DC.
More to come….
Peace & Love
