hi everybody! guess what?
i'm not on vacation! the whole trip was cancelled. wow. soooo i've got an entire week free with even fewer plans than usual!
my younger sister graduated last week (from college) --- and being there, and watching her receive her diploma, and walk in, was the definition of the word bittersweet. i couldn't be happier for her. she's worked hard and deserves this diploma.
but me. yes, it's always about me, isn't it? at least on my blog it is. :) she started school 2 years after me, and she's finished. i'm not finished, and i'm not even making PROGRESS towards finishing, b/c i've got these blessed migraines. it's just so frustrating. i get tired of it sometimes, tired of the headaches, but even more, tired of my life and what it has become; a careful balancing act between feeling bad and too bad, and making sure i REST enough. a person shouldn't have to REST unless they're a child, pregnant, or old. i'm not!!
whew. sorry. i don't like to be negative, but sometimes.....i guess everybody's got to blow off some steam!
i'll be back later with the kind of cheery drivel you've come to expect. ;)

I have the same problem, often times. It is so much easier to see the blessing and good things in other lives, than in your own, especially when those are things that you want in your life. Cheer up your time will come! Just imagine when you get that diploma how much more you appreciate it. When I got mine, I had to hold back the tears. I think it meant more to me than some of my friends, because I did it all on my own. My parents couldn't afford to put me through school, so I had to work and pay my way, when a lot of my roommates didn't and then also got play money. It was definately a proud moment for me. Trials make the reward so much sweeter. Good luck.

Well, I'm sorry Oregon was cancelled! It is so pretty there!
How is your pain therapy coming? Any progress with the new stuff?
I feel so bad that you have to deal with these headaches! I can't even imagine having to deal with them day after day.
Hang in there kid!
