So what's been cooking?
We had an ER visit on Thursday night: older DS had his first killer migraine. He's had migraine's before, but never like this one: acute pain, numbness in right arm and leg, really slurred speech, nausea. Now he understands when I tell him that I have "one of my headaches." : (
Blood work, CAT scan, EKG done just to be on the safe side. RX meds to get him through, should he have another killer one; meanwhile, I need to set up an appointment with a local neurologist. We also discussed the importance of having a regular sleep schedule, and eating schedule.
I went to work Fri, having slept only 4 hours the night before. I made it through the day, but the homemade pizza plan was scrapped, I ordered pizzas from the local, Greek pizzeria instead. I knew that I still had restaurant $ in my Dec budget, and any overage can be applied to Jan. We ate, I hit the bed at 9 p.m., sleeping in until 7 a.m.-unheard of for me!
I will be out this morning to the city as DS has a lesson and another needs a haircut, so I will complete what little grocery shopping I need, at the same time. Trying to stick with what is on hand, this morning's breakfast offerings were oatmeal from the canister (cooked in microwave in 2 minutes), Raisin bran cereal for me. OJ, cocoa and coffee were the beverage choices. I am pushing the cold cereal, we've out of packet oats-if kidlet will eat the canister ones with my own brown sugar and cinnamon added-that's a significant savings for me.
I have some fresh fruit that needs to be used up, so apples and bananas will somehow make it into today's baking.
