Good Tuesday Mornin' Yall,

I hope that everyone had a great Monday and ready to start a new day. It is currently 35 degrees with a windchill of 27 degrees. The winds are out of the North Northwest at 12 mph. It is raining outside and we are under a Winter Storm Warning until 4:00p.m. this afternoon. It has been raining since last night. It has been thundering and lightening quite a bit too. Now I have no reason why we are under the Winter Storm Warning tho.

I didn't know if I was going to be able to do a post or not. I started getting one of my bad headaches yesterday afternoon. When the girls got in from School, I had to go run some errands and go by the Dollar General Store to get some things. While I was there, I decided to buy me a box of Mount of Olives Treasures Tea. The flavor of it was Soothing Chamomile with Pomegranate. It was the only one that I seen was caffeine free. We got home and I sent our oldest daughter to the grocery store across the highway to get some styrophoam cups. I had boiled some water and fixed me and our youngest daughter a cup of the tea. I had to add some sugar to it, but let me tell ya, it was divine. I thought I was in Tea Heaven. LOL. It seemed to help my head a little bit as well. While we were having our Tea, I was heating up the leftover Cheeseburgers and Hot Dogs. After they had finished heating up, we ate the rest of them for our supper. By this time, I was in some severe pain. My head felt like it was fixing to just blow up. I told the girls that I had to go and lay down. I went to bed and I had our youngest daugther to bring me a couple of pain-aid pills. These are the Dollar General Store's generic to Tylenol PM. I had went off to sleep for a while and woke back up. I was still in pain. When I would turn from one side to the other, it would really hurt me. Later on, I finally went back to sleep and then woke up around 12:00a.m. I got up and called my DH to talk to him for a bit. He was in Arizona fixing to switch out so his Uncle could start driving. He finally called me back around 1:30a.m. and we talked for a while. I was up and down with my head till around 2:30a.m. I finally went off to sleep and got up around 6:10a.m. That is why I am late in posting today. My head is feeling better, but I'm just a little tired from not sleeping that good. Another thing, I never fixed me any coffee yesterday morning, so that could have something to do with my bad headache. I have me a good ole cup right now tho.

I have laundry to do today. Anyone want to come and do it for me? LOL. Just kidding. The girls have after School Tutoring today, that is if they don't cancel it because we are under a Winter Storm Warning. I'm not sure what I am going to fix for our supper. All the leftovers are gone. My DH will be home later tonight to spend the night and then leave out around noon tomorrow going up North. The last time I talked to him this morning, he said they were about 3 hours ahead of schedule.

I would like to "THANK" my dear friend, Linda@, for sending me a package. I got it in the mail yesterday. I am not going to tell you what it is now, because I want to use it for my Friday Show & Tell. I will tell you it's all so beautiful and I love everything she sent me. "THANK YOU" so much Linda. I do appreciate it very much. Don't yall just hate it when someone does this to you? LOL. I know, I should be ashamed of myself, but, I'm not. LOL.

I guess that's about it for this Tuesday. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You. I think I will start visiting now. There is coffee made, so grab yourself a cup of coffee and if I'm not here, I'll be back shortly.

Goodmorning Karen,
I hope you are feeling better to-day and your headache is gone. Not fun to be in such pain...
Sounds like your weather is still nasty..... Gosh same here, How I long for sunshine and daffodils..... Oh well I guess I have to just wait ....
I had a rotten week myself and finally to-day I am out of my PJ's and hopefully will accomplish something. I heard a lot of noise from the dust bunnies so guess I should tend to them first!!! UCK!!
Have yourself a great day my dear
trying to keep warm in the very cold temps.
PS I will be looking on Friday to see what you got!!;-}

Shelley said...

Hello Dear Karen, I pray this finds you feeling much better today. I have to do laundry just about everyday to keep on top of it. Just a part of life, I guess. Don't you just love the Doller Store? It sure has been a help to this family. They really have some great bargins and good quality items as well. Well, I can't wait to see what you recieved in your package. Have a wonderful day and God Bless,

Good morning Karen, it is laudry day for me today as well, but then everyday is laundry day for me,LOL.

I sure hope that headache is better today and you feel like your old self. I hate when I get headaches like that and believe me I get them alot.

Can't wait till Friday to see what you got in your package. You are such a sweetie you deserve nice things.

The dollar store here is our best friend especially for snacks for this big group I love it.

Stay dry and warm and have a great day. Will be saying a prayer for you that hubby gets home early so you can have more time together. take care my friend and talk to you soon.

Sandra said...

Morning Karen :)

I have to do laundry today too, well, actually finish it and put it all I'll be helping you in spirit LOL

Can't wait to find out what you got in your package, I'm excited :)

Hope you're able to stay warm and hope your hubby makes it home safe and sound :)

Hugs and love,

Hootin' Anni said... and I are kindred spirits...teasing those who visit us with "coming soon" show N tells. Yes indeedy. Can't wait to see whatcha got!!

And I'm thinking......Ya-a-a, it's probably having to do with no coffee/caffeine in your system. I found out about headaches and my intake of a lot of caffeine that was actually 'causing' the headaches for me. Once I switched to decaf [not coffee tho, soft drinks] my mind told me I was getting my caffeine fix when in all actuality I wasn't and eventually [it took months] my headaches disappeared. Have you had your blood pressure checked lately? That too will 'cause extreme pain when you lie down, stand up, sit, move a certain way. Truly, I've been there, done that.

And you know me and I'm hungry!! Is there a Whataburger close by as in RIGHT now?

Luvya bunches Karen...hope that hubby/uncle stay safe out on the roads.

See ya later alligator.

I am playing catch up on my fav. blogs. Hi Karen! I have been away covering another horse show and then had to work on 2 articles for that show...which sadly takes priority over blogging.. :0(

Anyway - so glad you are feeling better. I had a stomach flu and a really nasty headache came along with you have my sympathy!

I also - have never seen so many awards...but you are such a sweet person, you diserve every single one of them! Have a great day!

BTW - I actually started 2 new blogs. One is kind of for my daughters. It will be in book form....stories for them to keep forever about their childhood.

The other blog is for my Saddle and Bridle customers. I am using that one to post photos from the shows I cover.

Good Morning Karen,

I hope that you are feeling better today and that the weather doesn't get to bad. I didn't get around to much visiting yesterday so I'm playing catch up today. Thank you so much for the awards, that is so sweet of you :) I can't wait to see your package goodies.

Hi Karen,
I'm late for coffee here but I've already had a pot today! :o) Do you drink caffinated coffee in the morning? If so, the fact that you didn't have any could have brought on the headache. I don't have migrains or anything like that but I do get a little nagging headache if I don't have some caffine. I only drink it in the morning though. If I have some in the evening it's always decaf. At any rate, I sure hope your feeling better.

I can't wait to see your package contents! It's not fair for you to hold out on us until Friday!! Just kidding! I had never visited Linda's blog so I clicked on your link and went there. I love her blog! I'll be going back to visit her often.

We are suppose to get some of that rain later today. Right now it's sunny and a little windy at times. We still need more rain here though so I'm not complaining!

Have a good day!

Love and Hugs,

Mary Isabella said...

Oh how about some potato soup for tonght's dinner and hubby colud take some with him tommorrow. Just a thought.....Smiles... Mary

I hope your headache is totally better.

How wonderful to get a lovely package in the post.

It is still COLD up here but not as cold as the last two days. It was - 22 fahrenheit on Sunday and not much better yesterday. The brisk wind made it worse. Today we are getting snow and we are to get about 4 inches. I hope that's it. I'm ready for spring.

I'm sorry you have had a bad headache. I used to get migraines but never had another after Michelle was born. I guess the pregnancy and birth changed some of my body chemistry. I used to really suffer with those.

So DH is ahead of schedule? It's nice he will be home. I always keep him in my prayers so he and his uncle will be safe on the road.

Take care, my friend. Be sure to get some rest. I know it's hard to sleep when your hubby isn't home.


Diane J. said...

Well, it's 3:15 pm and it's 30F. We have freezing rain and icicles hanging off the clothesline and the cypress tree in our back yard. My feet are freezing so I'd like 3 cups of coffee, please - one to drink and one to put each foot in, LOL! ;o)

Your headache was probably caffeine deprivation, or it probably didn't help. Hope you're feeling much better by now.

Watch the weather and take care, Karen.

Love and hugs,


Linda said...

Hi Karen,are you feeling better, I sure hope so.
I think the Dollar Tree Stores are so fun...the tea you bought sounds yummy, I'm going to have to look for it. Take care. Hugs, Linda

PEA said...

Hello dear Karen:-)

Yes it's me..I'm alive....I think! lol Boy oh boy, I feel like a mac truck ran over me. Ugh! Just wanted to let you know that I'm ok...I so appreciate your visits to my blog to check up on me, you'll never know how much that means to me. I've been in bed the last couple of days and I think yesterday was the peak of this flu...hopefully now I'll start feeling better again. I really miss all of you!!! I hope your headache has completely gone away by now. xoxo

PEA said...

Oops, me again...shows you how muddled my brain still is! lol I forgot to thank you so very much for the awards you passed on to all of us in your previous post! It always touches my heart when someone is kind enough to pass on an award to me:-) xoxo

Betty said...

Hi Karen,

Do you have those headaches often? It seems I have heard you say before that you were having headaches. I hope you are feeling better today. Have a good night.

Denise said...

Hey sweetie, praying for those headaches to stay away. I love you.

Renie Burghardt said...

Dear Karen,

Oh, I do hope you are feeling much better by this evening. And if you're DH is now home, I'm sure you are!

I hope your weather didn't get too bad today. We had torrents of rain all night with thunder and lightening, but it was only rain, and not freezing rain, thank the Lord!

Just dropped by to say "Hi," and wish you a wonderful evening with your family.

Love and Hugs,


Dawn said...

Are you sure it's not the caffeine giving you the headaches?? Just a thought. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Cottage Contessa said...

Oh sweetie, I'm sorry you are in pain. I suffer from migraines too. That awful feeling like a sledge hammer has just hit you upside the head when you move even your eyeballs! Then the blessed relief when they finally leave. I hope yours is all gone by now. I would gladly come and do your laundry, I love washing! I'd be happy to cook you a delicious dinner too! Hope you're having a nice pain free day.
Amanda (aka Cottage Contessa) said...

Hi, Karen, I am typing with the Wii! I hope you are feeling better!Ok I have to point this deal that looks like a remote and do one letter at a time!!!! So this is it! Love and Hugs, Grams

Angela said...

Hey Karen:-)
Glad your feeling better. I do hate getting those bad headaches. And your probably right, not having the coffee just may have irritated things:-). Chamomile with Pomegranate? sounds yummy!! :-). Oh I've had my day of luandry too. I just don't get how 2 people can mess up as much as we do *giggles*.
Have a wonderful evening!!

Lisa said...

I hope you headache is all better.
The coffee and the compnay was good today. I can't wait to see what was in your package. Take care.

Chrissie said...

I'm so sorry you've been ill. My sister had a real bad migrane today, too, while I was visiting her, she was just getting over it when I left. I just praise God you're doing better! Thank you so much for the awards - I'm so honored!
God bless you, dear friend, and I pray that tomorrow will find you feeling wonderful!
Take care -

Mimi said...
