Not exactly as planned...

Good evening dear friends! I took the day off today to spend with the kids, take them to the Veteran's Day parade, etc. Rob was supposed to work today.   Well the parade was cancelled due to the weather. Rob took the day off, not necessarily a bad thing..  I went to the chiropractor this morning to try to get rid of this never-ending headache.  I felt better after getting adjusted but the headache was still lurking, and slowly got worse as the morning went on.  We did some running around, ate some lunch, and Rob suggested that when we got home I should take a shower and let the hot water run on my neck-where most of my tension was- and then lay down.  I told him I didn't want to sleep my day off away.. and he said "Well then just lay down and watch a movie."  Great idea! He kept David busy and Hanna had a book to read for school so I did as he suggested- I have been in the mood to watch "Emma" ever since I finished reading the book(maybe even before.) So I popped that in and lay down to watch it and try to relax, and also complete one more thing on my Jane Austen challenge list! Next thing I know I am waking up and part of the movie is over. Argh! And even then I couldn't stay awake, kept dozing off and on.. though there is an advantage to falling asleep while watching the movie- I dreamt of Jeremy Northam. hee hee..  So I guess I did NOT complete another task on my Jane Austen challenge. lol  The good news is my headache is mostly gone, I hope it will stay that way and I won't wake up with it again in the morning.  Overall it was a good day, after waking up from my nap/movie watching I just stayed in my flannel PJs the rest of the day.  It has been raining since yesterday so I knew I wouldn't want to go anywhere else- even though I wanted to kit up Hanna's Christmas present and I was missing a skein of DMC.. argh! Will have to go tomorrow and pick it up.  I worked on my LK flip it blocks again and am making some decent progress- will post a pic after I work on it tomorrow.

I also read a little.  I'm reading Exit Wounds by J.A. Jance- it is really good so far. Unfortunately it is #11 in a series and now I will want to read all the others. Like I don't have enough books on my goodreads "to read" list! :-O

Well it's back to work tomorrow so I suppose I better get to bed- I hope everyone had a great Veteran's Day and took some time also to remember and pray for our vets and active duty military.  I just found out a good friend of ours is going to be deployed fairly soon to Afghanistan. :(  What sacrifices they make for us!!

I hope the headache is gone! Sometimes you just need to take that rest and give your body a chance to heal itself. Hope you are feeling well now.
