Today, the headache lingers, but is so faint that it doesn't really hurt, but reminds me that it could resurface anytime it wants to. If the headache lingers much longer, I might as well name it, because feelings, even if they are painful, should be named if they choose to hang out with you for longer than a 24-hour period.

I was at jury duty before 8am this morning. Landon was nice enough to drop me off on his way to work. At 10:30am, they called the first round of jurors, and my name was not called. By 12pm, they said they would call a group of 30 people that would stay the whole day, while the rest of us could go home. I was so excited when, after the 30th person was called, I was free to go home. This was just what I needed! I was able to finish Medicine River while sitting in the jury room for four hours, and this afternoon, I've gotten a good head-start on my final paper, which is due Friday morning.

Tonight, we are going out to dinner with Mike & Susan. They leave for Africa tomorrow. I am a little worried about their safety, but realize that everything has a good chance of being fine for them. We'll think positive, and hope for the best! They are embarking on a dangerous journey, though, as they set out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. We're going to Pot Stickers, and I look forward to a good meal after having a miseable experience with lunch today. First, the eggs I cooked for lunch smelled rotten to me, even though they probably weren't, and it is just that they smelled weird to me since my sense of smell is altered due to being pregnant. Then, I tried making soy corndogs that were in the freezer, and they were freezer-burned, which I found out after taking the first bite! Finally, I got into my car, and drove to Harvest Fresh for a sandwich. It was a good sandwich, but for some reason, I was only able to eat half of it. I took a short nap, and am now working on my paper until I have to get ready for dinner in a half-hour. Actually, as you can see, I'm typing in my blog, and procrastinating on my paper, but that's how it goes. I type my papers with lots of breaks. It helps me to do a better job--at least, that's what I tell myself.

I will have to say that it is very interesting reading your blog. On the other hand my is quite boring.
I have not ever thought of NAMING my pain though.
Maybe there is something to that. Then you can always identfy with it when it comes visiting. Although I think that would be one "unwelcome" visitor.
Love You, MOM
