Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Yes, Lordy!

It’s so freaking cold here and I have had a headache for the last two days. Cold weather triggers my migraines. Ugh! I feel miserable. But, I’m pushing through it. I would rather be in my bed snuggled under my covers with a big hot cup of coffee and a good book. But, alas I must venture into the frozen world to make my living at my day job and dream of warmer climates.

My Weekend Recap:

So, my weekend was good (minus the headache of course). I took off Friday to go to Munch’s school to speak with his teachers about my son’s social development. LOL! Apparently, she’s having a hard time with my son’s lack of focus and not knowing how to interact socially with other children. He doesn’t like group work either. After speaking and providing suggestions for how they can work with my child and explaining how his mind works she felt comforted that we could partner together for my son’s success.

Later that evening my best friend and I attended a concert at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. It was a cold and rainy night and we had to park 4 blocks away. I was wet all the way to my bones, but nothing was better than seeing Gladys Knight and the O’Jays perform. It was a great concert and a perfect ending to an otherwise busy day.

On Saturday, I had a hair appointment and a date with Mr. C. We went to Paint Nite at a local restaurant and had a ball. He actually liked it. LOL! We decided to eat dinner at the restaurant because they served pizza and I love pizza. Neither of us had ever eaten at the restaurant so it was good. We were supposed to go for a walk around the monuments after dinner, but it was so cold. The windy weather left us longing for the warmth of heated seats inside of a heated car. So, we canned the walk.

Here are our pictures:

Sunday left me bedridden with the headache from hell (i.e. migraine). I was awoken early in the morning with an excruciating headache. I took meds. I slept off and on most of the day and met my girlfriend for dinner Sunday evening. It was a great time of conversation and enlightenment. I love girl time and speaking with people who can provide a different perspective on my life and situations. One of the things she told me had a profound impact on me and will be in a future post.

Drinks and cigars with a friend on Sunday evening and another headache yesterday. I was going through it with these frigid and cold temperatures and my dang head. It’s now Tuesday and I’m ready for relief. But, I’m also looking forward to working out later with Mr. C. because I had a heavy carb weekend and need to burn these calories off. This was a definite cheat weekend. Back to the gym!

Oh, and we’re supposed to get snow this weekend (Friday evening through Saturday) so it will be colder. I’m sitting here sipping my iced coffee sighing “I need warmer weather”. However, there is a bright spot…The temperatures are supposed to reach the upper 30’s tomorrow. Yay!

  1. Nice job on the pics! Sounds like a busy weekend. Yup, winter finally arrived and the snow is on it’s way. I’m in RI so a little further north than you. Snow is coming this weekend but I’m ready to hibernate for a day or too!

  2. The painting thing – what a fun date idea! I’ve always wanted to try this, though I think I need one of those ‘wine & paint’ things. What is up with the headaches? Ugh, I am feeling your pain (literally) and wondering about the cold/dry weather. This time of year it’s near impossible for me to not want to hunker down and eat ALL the carbs. I guess it’s that old cave woman instinct in me…yeah, that’s it. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Xo from NC.

  3. Well it looks like you had an eventful weekend. Mines was not that eventful at all. Well.. I did make a major decision to change my eating habits which I think helped me focus on getting certain chores done that I was procrastinating so hard on. Eating healthy improves focus. Who knew? (Well I did… I just didn’t care about all that lol) Anyway, I hope your migraines go away very soon and I am with you on that warmer weather!
