Recent events of note:
1. I had an awesome migraine that lasted for 6 days. It was stellar good times here at home. Fortunately, my doc was able to order me a shot of dilaudid (a heavy-duty narcotic) and it went away. I had no idea he could do that, so I won’t wait so long next time before letting him know! And just when I start to think that Kyle’s got to be getting tired of taking care of me all the time, he brings me flowers. Sweet husband. It was nice to have something colorful and happy to look at while I was moping around the house (that was on day 3):
2. In happier news, I have another nephew! Christopher and Jenny now have a beautiful son, Miles Christopher Johnson. He was born May 1, the pics are adorable, and I can’t wait to meet him.
3. Kyle and I spent Saturday morning at a service project cleaning up a trail nearby. (It was part of a state-wide thing done by Mormon Helping Hands.) We ended up pulling logs out of…well, it was a mess. Basically, a stream-bed had jammed with logs and suchlike, and it was all mud and debris and decomposing earth and, well, mess. Our goal was to clear out the big stuff so it wouldn’t clog up again so fast, and we were digging out logs and branches for a few hours. Lots of mud and wet. We got a lot done, though, and I felt quite triumphal every time we finally got something we’d been working on for a while.
Right now, we’re finishing up preparations for our Florida trip (we leave in the morning). We’ll let you know how it goes!
