Well, I seem to be accomplishing the first goal I set for 2009: to spend the day on the couch relaxing.

Only it's not going exactly as I had originally evisioned it.

I woke up at 3 am feeling as if someone had skewered my eyeballs and was playing "criss-cross applesauce" with ice picks in my skull. I took some Tylenol 3 and laid on the couch awhile dozing fitfully.

I finally went to bed, but upon arising, realizing I hadn't shaken my foe. After a little breakfast and some over the counter headache relief (I hoped), I hit the couch again. There's nothing worse than having to lay around, yet being unable to do anything else like read or watch t.v.. After 8 hours of wrestling, I've gotten it down to practically nothing.

Lemme tell ya. There's nothing better than the relief of no pain after a headache stops hurting.

I am still without my laptop which really sips because I can't do the personal business I want to take care of, I can't find photos I want to share and I always feel like I'm standing in line to use the computer and once I get on, feel I should hurry and get off.

We called the guru guys last week to check on the computer and they informed us that we need a new power cord before they can do anything. "O.K." we said. On Monday we call to see if it's ready and they inform us that they haven't ordered the power cord yet, because we need to pay for it up front.

Grrr.

Why did no one mention that before?!

Factor in the holidays and we are still waiting. Apparently, my first lesson of 2009 is learning patience.

I'm failing miserably.

Nice to meet you! Thanks for dropping by my blog! By the way, I too suffer from bad headaches. I have found the best relief is to put an ice pack on my neck and lie down for 20 minutes. Sounds strange but it WORKS!

So sorry you had such a horrible day! And the cord, again with the customer service?!?

It can only get better, I hope!
