My migraine twinges finally turned into a full on migraine last night. Of course, I was too focused on watching Vantage Point to let it get the best of me. I thought Vantage Point was a great movie, too bad it ended so quickly. I mean just a couple more minutes on everyone’s story would have made it about 15-20 minutes longer. I was a little bummed with how easily it all tied up in the end and well, how short the whole thing was (less than 90 minutes).
Interestingly enough, once the movie ended, the head started to throb. I headed into the bedroom to rest with my eye mask on (must get a new one, that one was a cheapie and it hurts after it’s been on for a bit). After about 30 minutes or so, I realized that I needed to hit up the Vicodin or the throbbing pain would go on for hours. The first time my doc prescribed the Vicodin for my migraines, I was really surprised. But honestly, it cuts way, way down on how long they last. And with the actual throbbing gone, the regular meds can just focus on kicking the actual migraine out of my head.
Today the hubs and I are heading out to a friend’s place for a BBQ. I’m quite happy since it will be in Santa Monica and that fact alone drops the temperature about 5-10 degrees. Now I just need to figure out what to bring along since my request to provide something was shot down. The old standard is wine, but I’m acatually thinking maybe cut up watermelon instead.
Just out of curiousity, what’s your BBQ take-along standby?
