Happy BD to me!

Today was a Big Day for me. Gargantuan, in some respects. In fact, these last 24 hours have been full of firsts.

First of all (the first first?), I got a migraine last night. For most people, this is not bloggable. For me though, well, yeah, it is. Because I’ve never had a migraine before. Or rather, I’ve only had one, and it lasted about 4 minutes, and when I looked up Stephanie had injured her shoulder. But I’m more likely to chalk that up to the uncanny connection that she and I seem to have sometimes rather than to an actual migraine. But last night? Actual migraine central.

It came on really fast. The trigger? Registering, I think. As in for the wedding. Dave and I keep trying to do this in little chunks, but I wanted to finish at Linens ‘N Things last night because I hate incomplete projects. About 5 minutes after we got there, I was in serious pain. I don’t remember it coming on, it just suddenly hurt. I tried to push through. I thought it would go away. After several minutes, Dave said, “Ok. I really think we should go home now.” And we did. And I curled up in a little ball on my bed in the dark and found that, if I didn’t move and it was as completely dark as I could get it, I could probably fall asleep. And then I did that, and slept for 9 hours.

That, by the way, is out of the ordinary, too. Though more ordinary now than it used to be. I began to pray that God would make me into someone who can sleep well, and that seems to be happening.

The other first that happened today was that Dave and I bought a car. Of our very own!! I haven’t done this before. My Saturn was a gift, and the Honda was a sort of, “Well, I guess you can have it since Isaac won’t need it and your car is falling apart and we don’t have anywhere to keep it” windfall. I told the Civic today that it was about to get a big brother or sister. I think Dave thought I was nuts.

Anyway, we will have the car next weekend, because that is when the people can get rid of it. It’s a ’92 Honda Accord, light green, and it really is amazing how this all worked out for us. Thanks be to God!
