I think I stole that title from Heather...did I steal that from you Heather? I'm sorry if I did!! Monday just seems like a good day to ramble :p I hate Mondays...seriously hate them. For some reason, it's always the busiest day at the hospital I work at. I'm the evening supervisor of admissions at a psychiatric hospital and it never fails that we have nonstop admissions on Mondays. I guess people figure if they're going to need to detox from drugs or alcohol or take care of some mental health issues, they might as well get a week of work off too! I know I would if I needed some mental health help! I really have no explanation for why things work that way :p But I'll shut up about that now because I really am rambling.
Today decided to welcome in an awful migraine too. You may have noticed that I haven't been bitching about my migraines as much recently and that's because they've been SO much better lately. I went back to my old neurologist who I really never should have left. She has me on a much better medication regimen and I'm down to about 10 migraines a month now whereas before I was having them every other day if not every day. But there are some days where there's just no fighting them. I've loaded myself up with meds today and with coffee and it's only resulted in my heart beating through my chest, me being cranky and some slight relief from this headache. But I'll take the slight relief!
Anyone on instagram that I'm not following? I really wish Instagram was not limited to people with smartphones. I've come to love instagram...it's fun to follow my friends on there and get little snapshots of their lives. It's also fun to snap pictures throughout the day on my phone and kind of make an online photo journal. If you're interested in seeing my instagram photos for some reason and don't have access to it, I crosspost all of my pics to my tumblr. Sadly that's about all I do with my tumblr these days :( These were a few of my fav pics taken from today:
my new little poppet from Lisa Snellings-Clark...and of my 30+ poppets that I have from her, I think it may be my absolute favorite. It's so bright and happy and celebratory and it just makes me so very happy every time I see it...it reminds me that there's always beauty to see in the world. BTW, I'm also super excited about the Kickstarter project that Lisa has in the works...can't WAIT to hear more details about it...but there are some details available on her website now!
Finally, I think I'm taking a new approach to comments! I'm SO bad at responding to comments on here and there's really nothing I want more than to actually respond to people. It's what I love about my blog...the interaction with all of you, my dear friends and fellow readers. So I'm going to start responding to comments via email. I think that'll be much easier for me. I'm just so bad about coming back to my blog and responding to comments, plus I don't know how many people actually come back to check posts for responses. Do you ever go back to posts you left comments on to check for responses? And how do you handle comments? I feel like I'm finally starting to get back to a regular blogging schedule now that life is settling in, and I have to say...it feels good.
