Hump Day Midday Coffee Break

Just thought I’d share one of my favorite Temptations songs…

Have a GREAT hump day, everyone!

  1. Isn’t it wonderful waking up and knowing your girl is in the house? I’m doing well with her being gone, but I can just feel it when she’s here and we’re complete.

    • I know EXACTLY how you feel. I feel it every other Tuesday morning when I wake up on her first morning back home… when she goes to college I’mgoing to have to be sedated

  2. I need pie help!

    So I am making a pumpkin pie, using a frozen pie crust from Trader Joe’s. I bought a Pyrex baking pan to bake it in.

    Do I need to do anything to prep the pan for the crust? Grease it, flour it? Or will it come out all intact all on its own?

  3. I think I am dying. I never get headaches and I have the worst one. This afternoon I couldn’t see out of my left eye and my hands and face went numb and I felt like I was talking funny. This happened 2 years ago and the doctor said it was a migraine. Went to bed for 3 hours nd now my head is splitting open and my throat hurts. Ugh ugh ugh.

    • Lavender, caffeine (if the baby can handle it), and lots of water and sleep. I get those and they’re hell. You don’t have blood pressure trouble, do you? If so, it’s more concerning and maybe worth a call to the doc.

    • oh, gah. I got really bad headaches (not migranes, thank goodness) within the first two weeks after giving birth with both girls, so I think for me, it’s hormonally related. (If I’m going to get a headache, it’s always when I’m PMSing, fwiw, sorry if TMI).

      I’m so, so sorry that you’re suffering through this. Hope the lavender pack works.

      • Thanks. I just hope it’s hormones and not that I’m getting sick. I’m terrified that I will pass something to the baby. And, I realized I didn’t get my pertussis vax in the hospital though I requested it…forgot to ask the postpartum nurse about it. And I just read I should have gotten it while pregnant for it to be more effective at protecting her. /mom fail. :(

    • Sounds like an ocular migraine — I’ve been getting them since I was 8, and had one with numbness and aphasia about 2 years ago. I don’t have a remedy other than Excedrin Migraine for the headache. Side note — my doc said that you should never take anyone’s prescription migraine mess if you are having a ocular migraine. The “blindness” is caused by the major eye vessels constricting, reducing blood flow to the eye. Rx meds relieve typical migraines by constricting the blood vessels. She said that if I ever get an ocular migraine and a friend says “oh, here take one of my migraine meds” not to do it because it could cause blindness.

      • Oh! Good to know! I woke up with a pounding head and sore throat and dh also has it, so I’m not sure if it was hormones or just the start of getting the kids’ cold. But these migraines are scary because it seems more like a stroke (both times it’s been only on my left side, plus the aphasia). But good thing I just took ibuprofin and no one offered me migraine Meds! Will remember that.

        • I saw a doctor at the urging of my speech pathologist best friend after the first time I had one with aphasia. I read up on TIA and thought an MRI would be a good idea just in case it was that or a mini stroke. Doc said it was neither, but that they tend to happen with more frequency/intensity with age, and it’s good to keep on top of them because a stroke may be more likely for someone with these types of migraines as they get old.

          I went to the ER for one for the first time when I had the numbness. Had another MRI after that episode (DH was in India at the time, so I waited until I was ok to drive – had to drop the kids with a friend), and it was also negative for TIA or stroke. After having these for as long as I remember, that was the numbness for the first time was really freaky. I was pacing around the house crying and trying to say “What do I do? What do I do?” but just word salad came out. The kids were still at school at that time thankfully. I gave myself a time limit (I think 10 minutes) and told myself if the numbness didn’t go away after 10 minutes I’d call 911. Thankfully, these parts of the migraine are over quickly. The headache that follows takes a while, but the blindness part is over in about 30 minutes.

          Anyway, from what I know, no long-term damage, but keep your doctor aware of them.

  4. Pies!!! I made 3 tonight. They are all still cooling on the counter. When M wakes up to nurse, I’ll pop them in the fridge, I guess.

    Turns out I love baking pies. Those pre-chilled shells are Da Bomb! Here’s hoping they taste as good as they look…

  5. Our NYC trip is on! Christmas night – New Year’s Eve morning. We’re booked that Saturday 12/29 for the evening but otherwise have nothing set yet. Anyone want to meet up?
