This morning I woke up and immediately went down to the basement to resume my yoga. Granted, it's yoga for wusses on the Wii, but it does my body and mind good. The Wii told me it's been something like 173 days sine my last session. My goal is to get it back to a daily ritual.
DH and I walked over to Panera and split a sandwich for lunch. It is a stunning day outside.
DH has an interview tomorrow for a position he's highly interested in as an IT Manager for a 4 star resort. It embarasses me to say this, but the clothes he has been wearing for interviews make him look like a dork. I have beseiged him time and time again that we need to buy him a really sharp looking outfit. You know what they say about clothes making the man and making a good first impression. I even volunteered to go to the store without him, buy something, and if he doesn't like it I would return it. He is stubborn as a mule and he just doesn't get it.
Anyway, I hope you will all keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer for us. He's been out of work a long time and it is affecting his self-esteem, not to mention our bank account.
Also please hold a good thought for me. After 3 months and 10 days of being migraine free, I have had 2 in the past 5 days. I really want them to go away again, because I was just getting a life back. It is so much easier to stay consistent with diet and exercise when there isn't frequent migrainus interruptus.

I had a major migraine yesterday that sent me to the ER. This was a huge dissapointment. Prior to this, the last migraine I had was on December 12. I have never gone so long without a migraine. I thought I was home free.
However, it appears I may still have to deal with them in the future. I simply thank God for giving me the respite that I had and hope they will remain months apart in the future.
I had been concerned because I had been waking up with headaches for about the last three weeks. They were not as bad as migraines and they would dissapate in the afternoon.
So, where do I go from here? Only God has the power to relieve my suffering and I will endure until He sees fit to lift this burden. In the meantime I will focus on enduring with grace.
I am always trying to better my mental outlook and I ran across this kindle book on Amazon. It is called "Born to be Happy: How to Uncover Your Natural State of Happiness."
I have read many self-help, inspirational, happiness and feel-good books. This one is a little different than most taking a mindfulness aproach. I'm only up to chapter 4, but what I have gleaned so far is there is only the present moment in which to choose to express the happiness inside us. An analogy was that when it's a cloudy, stormy day we still know the sun exists. Thus as we weather life's storm, happiness always exists within us.
I can visualize being happy in the moment and stringing the moments together for a lifetime of happiness. What could be better than that?

The weather here has been just lovely lately. Yesterday I started prepping my garden beds. Each spring I dream of a fabulous garden and I get off to a good start. Then my health prevents me from keeping the weeds under control. Also, when I go away to Maine for my summer vacation my husband forgets to water and I come home to dead plants. Maybe this year will be different sine I am not suffering like I had been with the migraines. If I am able to go to Maine this year, I am going to hire a neighbor kid to water.
I really need to get back into my exercise groove and also start doing my yoga again. I tell myself each night that I am going to get up early to exercise the next day, but I have been waking up with bad headaches and not wanting to get out of bed. I think my depression is playing a part in that and some of the medications could be causing the headaches.
I have been doing a fair amount of reading, cooking, and baking. Now if I could only find my inner housekeeper.
