I found these heart ornaments at the D.I. for fifty cents. The frame also from the D.I. for a buck. Pull off the strings from the hearts, paint one of them gold(with nail polish, because I didn't have any paint at the time), glue the hearts on.....


Viola! Instant Valentine's Day decor! 



Smaller tube was inside the big one. Nice false packaging Burt :s

My head hates me



I've pretty much decided that I'll have murderous migraines torturing me the rest of my life. I have so many triggers it's insane. Dehydrated = MIGRAINE! Florescent lights = MIGRAINE!! Not enough sleep = MIGRAINE!!! Too much sleep = MIGRAINE!!! Hormonal changes = MIGRAINE!!!! Didn't wear sunglasses outside = MIGRAINE!!!  I could go on forever.

Today I found out my insurance covers chiropractic care and I have 20 visits a year. That, acupuncture and massages are my next choices for trying to find something that works.  Who would have thought some blood vessels pushing on some nerves could cause so much pain!



We'll see if bone crackin', needle pokin', and some stranger rubbin' me down does anything.


In other news, Steven and I were just called as the Sunbeam/CTR 4 class teachers. They are the 3-5 year-olds. I taught this age group years ago in my parents' ward, so it's no big deal. Steven on the other hand might need to start taking blood pressure medication.
Actually he's really good with the kids, (more than I thought he would be actually) Love ya Babe! I am very glad to have a calling with Steven though. Being with him for all three hours is wonderful.


Tonight I have a meeting with someone from the high council to "talk". If it's a stake calling, I'm demanding to be released from the ward calling. I'd prefer to have my brains in an un-fried state, thank you.

I'm limiting my computer time to half hour bursts (why else? MIGRAINES!!!!) so I need to pull myself away as I've already been on facebook, ksl, my email and pinterest this morning.  Ahh, pinterest. I love that site!

I've fallen into the trap of the perfect LDS wife. Not pretty/thin enough, not a clean enough house, not making enough money, not being as spiritual as I should be. If one word describes how I feel right now, it would be inadequate. Sometimes setting goals can make you feel pretty rotten.

Just thought I'd put that out there.
