Computers, counting, and Coke

Computers: The line to the computer was not, I repeat NOT, severed by the puppy. I know you all were anxiously awaiting that information. This is good because I need to order some pictures and they are all on the laptop. No laptop= no pictures and Walgreen's just sent a code to get 50 pic's for $5. I told Tasha that I needed to work really quick because I didn't know how long the computer was going to work. I impressed upon her that she needed to not bug me, ask me a bunch of questions, and not fight with her sister. Then I asked her to repeat the information to her sister. Within 5 minutes Kyra was asking me if she could open the pretzels we just bought and Tasha was telling me that Dad didn't like her to read the book she was reading, but they weren't arguing. Such is life, I'm wondering if the wall is listening.

Counting: Tasha can count to 49 without help. Then I helped her get to 100. Then she gets mad and wants to know what is next. There is no explaining this concept to a 4 year old while driving. She got mad, yelled, and tells me to answer the question. Once she got over this and decided to count to 100 again and again it was sweet. This continual counting does not bug my migraine because it is just that, continual. Music doesn't bother it either. In fact, loud thumping noises tend to alleviate some of the pain.

Coke: Coca-cola seriously is my drug of choice. After a morning of migraine pain, rest, a chiropractic visit, and detension traction relief, I resorted to Coke. Tasha came home from school and I was still sitting in the dark with my eyes half-way closed when I realized she needed something to eat for lunch. We went to Costco for milk, grapes, and pizza. I broke all the rules today and instead of sharing a slice and a drink, we each got our own. OOOh, big spender. I really wanted stuff on my pizza and I didn't want to subject Tasha to Coke in her young and innocent days. Seriously...I wasn't even through my slice of pizza before the Coke took hold and the migraine was gone. I think I better put some Coke in my food storage.

I always feel so bad for you when you have migraines. That stinks. Coke is totally a medicine for you, you should buy stock in it and then stock pile it for food storage. I hope it stays away for good forever this time! Miss you.

Ok..Ok...I will give in! If it will help in the case of your migraines, then I am willing to allow Coke in the house! The sacrifces husbands have to make for their wives...

Its funny that caffine can be a migraine trigger and a cure at the same time. My MIL avoids it and my Mom uses it. All because of migraines.
