I don't wanna be here

So, is it wrong of me to wish I had a migraine right now so I could leave work and go home? 

Yes, yes it is.  No, I really don't want a migraine.  I just wish I weren't at work.

But I am so here I'll stay until 5:00.  Blech

Actually, I'm quite glad I don't have a migraine and quite surprised too.  It's that time of the month and it's all rainy/stormyish outside.  My two main triggers so really it's quite amazing I don't have one. 

I certainly hope I'm not jinxing myself either, because I really don't want one no matter how much I'd like to go home.

Whales and the Rest of the Menagerie

So not much has been happening with me, as usual, since the last post. 

Had the first two week follow up appointment after putting on the bottom braces.  As promised he upped the pushing together of the teeth.  The tooth to the left of the space has a much larger gap now between it and the next tooth.  The tooth to the right is moving as well just not as accelerated, I guess he wants the ones to the left to move in more than the ones on the right. 

It's a pain in the ass to eat just about everything.  But does that stop me?  Nope.  

A couple weeks ago I went to do my grocery shopping and as I'm walking into the store I look up into the sky and see a whale there.  Yep, you read that right, a whale.  Look see for yourself.....

Don't know where it was going though.  Maybe to Lake Michigan as it's headed east.  I believe if you click on the picture you'll get a larger version.

So, the following picture is what I put up with most nights, or some version thereof.

My head is that tiny brown spot in the bottom left corner of the picture.  In order from my head up is Merry, Pogo, Pippin and Banderling.  Merry and Pippin are the kittens who are brothers and Pogo and Banderling are 13 year old brothers.

Normally Pogo is the first on the pillow, there sometimes before my own head hits it.  He doesn't quite do what my beloved Tody would do which was race me to bed.  Somehow that cat knew when I was going to bed as opposed to just going to the bedroom for something. He'd actually take off running and jump up and settle on the pillow before I had a chance to climb in.  No, Pogo follows me in and sometimes even waits for me to settle before jumping up.  And other times he's there already.  I guess it just depends on his mood.

So anyway, he settles in and sometimes that's it all night but most of the time at least one of the kittens if not both will follow.  Usually it's Pippin first and he always goes above like he is now, between Pogo and the headboard.   

Merry always plops down in between Pogo and my head/face.  Usually my face.  Just puts his belly right in my face so I can barely breath.  Which is what he did this night.  He was the second one in.

That's usually it because Bander prefers to either be in my face and if he can't because of Merry he'll go to his second favorite spot which is nestled against my stomach.  I'm a side sleeper with my legs bent.  So he's in the lap spot usually.  But for whatever reason this night he decided he wanted up where Pippin usually goes and settled in between Pogo and the headboard.

Then next thing I know up comes Pippin stomping up the side of the bed and with no hesitation plops down on top of Pogo and Bander and slowing because of being so heavy squished them to the sides.  Which of course made Pogo squish Merry just a little more against my face. 

I knew this had to be quite a sight so I reached over to the table and grabbed my phone to take a picture.  It's not the best as Pippin's face is cut off a bit but it's still pretty darn good and definitely represents how I end up with just a tiny patch of pillow for myself.

And this picture of Poydras was one morning after I woke up.  He was all snuggled in against my side where Bander usually goes looking all adorable.

The red comforter just swallows him up.  Ah the joys of having animals.

This morning I woke up to Bander being the only one on the pillow above my head, Pogo stretched out along my back and the kittens at my feet.  One of them was sort of on top of them.  And Poydras was in between me and HDT with his head resting on my arm.  Too bad I couldn't get a picture of that.

No media quote today.  Can't think of anything off the top of my head and don't feel like researching anything that would go with.
