A Cherub Completed

Well the weekend went by in the blink of an eye. Friday I was royally not feeling good (fatigue) so I opted out of going to body pump and headed home. I put the taco shells in for supper and the power went out, sigh... We called the church which is on the other side of the main road and they still had power so we made Alex a sandwich, dropped him off and had an impromptu dinner date. We tried to get into the new Frank's location but it was uber busy and there wasn't even a place to park so we decided to try a different chinese place. It was ok, it was no Seasons or anywhere near the ones at home (it's hard to beat Miramichi chinese food for some reason) but it was nice to get out for a date. Service was painfully slow and we just made it to the closing of Vacation Bible School. Alex was pretty sad to see it come to an end.

Saturday Matt had a golf tournament so it was just Alex and I. We did a tonne of chores, dropped the bottles off, groceries, returned some items, picked up his new Franny K. Stein book that was just released and picked up our tickets to Mr Bean's Holiday. We returned to the mall after we dropped of the groceries and had some lunch to watch the movie. Alex LOVED it! The people behind us got more entertainment out of watching Alex than the movie, he was just roaring. It's quite funny as the boy has only ever seen the 'Unseen Bean' tape and that's hardly Prime Bean, ditto with the movies. I can't wait to show him the original show one of these days. I didn't mind the movie, it was light hearted and funny, Alex's reaction made it worth paying theatre prices over a rental though.

Sunday I put two and two together as to why I'd been so agitated all weekend when I was felled by a migraine. It wasn't until I read up on them a bit more that I put my agitated days together with the pre migraine phase. I really need to start listening to my body better. A nap in the afternoon helped and let me work on my Cherub for the exhibition but by bed time my head was back to throbbing. Monday was not much better. I still got to work on my Cherub but by the end of the night I was ready to Botox one side of my head.

Today I'm pretty wiped out. I get alot of sleep when I have migraine episodes but it's not a refreshing sleep. I spent the lunch hour in and finished my Mirabilia cherub, now just to frame it tomorrow at lunch where tonight is written off. Goodness only knows but at least the Mirabilia Cherub is now complete ;)

Sounds like you had a busy weekend. Hope your head is feeling better. Do we get to see a photo of the Cherub?

You've had so many migraines this year... I hope you have a break from them now!

Our power didn't even flicker on Friday night... we lucked out.

I'm anxious to see your cherub :)

WOOHOO! Although I am still waiting for a picture ;o)

I hate migraines. They really throw you for a loop :o( Hope you feel better as the week progresses.

I LOVE Mr Bean and the movie looks hilarious! I bet Alex liked it. He'll love all the old shows of Mr Bean then :o)
