Back In The Saddle. I Think.

Hello everyone. Just checking in to let you know that I am not dead and I think (and really hope) that the worst of this migraine is over... for now. What am I saying? I think that we are back to the regularly scheduled migraine. Yeah, that still means I am chugging pain pills daily, but the good news is that I am not thinking about how to separate my head from my body. Yeah, I spent considerable thought on the axe theory (again) and (again) determined that it just isn't possible to cut off one's head with an axe. Since I have already been down this road with my parents, I knew that they were unwilling to help me in this endeavor, so... it was just a matter of waiting it out. God bless me. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. This is the time when I would add "bless her heart" if I were talking about someone else. LOL. That is just how we do it in the south.

Now, this might sound like a depressing blog, but it isn't. Truly. I feel so much better that you would not believe it. It makes my regular pain, which is pretty sucky, a much happier place to be. Who knew? See, there is good news everywhere. Sometimes you just have to look pretty hard to find it.

Speaking of good news, I was so touched by those of you who sent me HERE'S TO YOU videos on Thursday. Yellow Rose Jasmine. Carol the Gardener. Red Shoes. If I missed someone, it is because I needed a strong sign pointing me in the right direction. I was not doing any voluntary blog reading. Anyway, your videos really touched my heart. And some of you have stopped by several times leaving comments, others have sent email... it is all quite wonderful. I have the best blog friends. Truly. The videos, the comments, the emails all put a smile on my face. So thank you, thank you, thank you. And I am looking forward to getting back to my regular blog reading and writing.

I spent a lot of time lying in bed listening to music. I have a bunch of songs on a rotation. Anyway, no matter how yucky I felt this one made me feel just a tiny bit better, at least for four minutes or so. So, here is my HERE'S TO YOU right back at you. I know it isn't Thursday. Apparently, we are all rule-breakers! I love you guys. Happy Monday!

Don't ya know it won't embed. So click here to get your groove on.


  1. I am so happy to see you back here and to hear you say you are feeling better! I've missed your presence.


  2. I've never heard this song before. I like it! I'm glad you feel better. Migraines suck! Hope you are migraine-free soon!

  3. Yay! We love you, Rob! Maybe you could get a 'rebound' that would bring you even more pain relief than 'normal'. (I know, I can be a bit Pollyanna-ish.)

  4. So glad you're feeling somewhat better at least! Nasty migraines.

  5. Glad you are feeling better! Thanks for the gave me a great smile. I've never lived down south, but I LOVE me some chicken-fried, and grits, and sweet tea!

  6. Dear Robin,
    Headaches must be a huge pain in the patoutte.... No I know they're in the head. Never had one but I know a lot of people who do. I didn't check out your tune yet, but I will.

    I got a new infrared sauna. (an old lady toy) Off to sweat, baby.
    Glad you're well and love to you,

  7. Love, love, love, love, love you. So much. Stay strong and keep kicking ass, my friend. Hugs and more hugs!

  8. Robin: Bless your heart! We knew you weren't dead, but that would be no excuse anyway. You would still have to blog (Wireless, I guess)!

    Welcome back, my friend, and be well.

  9. I would swear that I thought I posted a comment here the other day... :o(

    It's good to see you back... :o)


  10. I am one of those people prone to headaches, migraine and colds. Usually, my first recourse is White Flower Embrocation (, also called White Flower Oil
