Rough week-

It's just been a rough week. V is spitting up a lot and cranky. I'm covered with bruises because I am coordination challenged, my favorite mishap seems to be walking into the coffee table. Although I did walk into the end of the wood framed futon the other day, and I have a hand sized bruise on my thigh to prove it. Ugh. I also seem to enjoy hitting my elbows on the cupboards- resulting in yet more bruises! I don't know what's wrong with me.

Oh, and then we had a small electrical fire the other day. We were damn lucky I was downstairs and awake when it happened, and the cats alerted me to the issues... in case the thumping/popping/buzzing noises weren't enough to clue me in. I quickly put the fire out with a fire extinguisher, and ran to the basement to flip the breaker switch to kill the power. So then we spent the rest of the night fixing that and cleaning up the mess from it. Luckily it didn't spread anywhere except that outlet, it didn't get the floor or the curtains... it was as contained as it could be. But it was SCARY as HELL.

I don't know if I ever mentioned on here, but my biggest fear (aside from the zombie apocalypse) is having my house catch fire. My great-grandmother died in a house fire when my grandma was only six. She had ran back in because she thought the kids were still in the house, and then she died a few days later in the hospital as a result of that fire. I don't know why, but that has been a huge phobia of mine since I heard that story. So there you go... But, everything is alright. The house is okay, we're okay; I'm a little shaken, but I'm fine.

We went to a gaming convention today, hoping to get a photo with some geeky stars we love. We missed them because we were running late, and won't have a chance to try again tomorrow unfortunately... so I'm a bit bummed about that. That's really not a big deal though, considering! However, while we were there  I noticed that I developed a migraine. Now, I used to get migraines several times a week, and until today I didn't even realize that I've been migraine free for months. Like, I didn't even NOTICE. I've gotten 1-3 migraines a week since I was a child, I got used to them and I learned to function through the pain (it sucked)... and yet, I just went months without one. Now I want to know what I did to bring this one on... or rather, what was keeping them away in the first place? I mean, I got a headache here and there over the past few months, but I honestly can't remember my last migraine. I forgot how much they sucked. Ugh.

So, rumble ramble... I'm grumpy, the week hasn't been going to plan... but we're okay.
