I hate winter. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful and is home to some of my favorite holidays. However, it’s also incredibly cold, which is not a good climate for those of us with fibromyalgia. Plus as beautiful as the snow and icicles are, they are Hell on the roads. Especially when there is currently a salt shortage which leads our “fearless leader” Governor Strickland to issue a statement saying that Ohioians simply need to learn to drive in the snow. {Jerk.} For his information, most of us know how to drive in the snow because we’ve lived here our entire lives. It’s merely a matter of a little thing called “Public Safety” that we prefer to have the roads plowed and salted down. Silly Ohioians, wanting safe roads. {Pfth.} Looks like those of us without 4×4 vehicles are S.O.L. (Sorry Out of Luck) {That includes us, by the way.}

Anywho, back to the temperature and it’s reeking havoc on my body. I am hurting. Big time. I slept horribly last night for two reasons. First, I was having some seriously bizarre dreams. The kind of dreams where you wake up, say “what the…” and then go back to sleep only to pick-up right where you left off. {I hate that.} Second, I kept waking up in excruciating pain. It was next to impossible to find a comfortable position and believe me when I say I tried. Lucky for me, I have about the best husband in the world. When Elliott Richard woke up at 4:00am but Emmett John didn’t, Rob got up with Elliott Richard and left us to sleep in! {Woo who!} Granted, I’m not sure that 7:30am classifies as “sleeping in” but I’ll take what I can get at this point. {lol} I had hoped the extra sleep would help to ease the pain. Unfortunately, it didn’t. I still woke up in excruciating pain and with a migraine to top it off. Even after taking two extra strength Tylenol and a 3 hour nap with Elliott Richard and Emmett John; I still feel as if someone beat me with a baseball bat while I slept. Needless to say, I’m a tad grumpy today.

Today is my little sister, Jenn’s 18th birthday. {Okay, technically she’s Rob’s little sister and my little sister-in-law. We choose not to use the in-law part though.} We are heading over to Mom and Dad G’s for a birthday dinner to celebrate. First, we have to go shopping though. While I can’t partake in the dinner {We are bringing Emmett John approved food from Burger King for me. Yum.} I’m still really looking forward to hanging out with the whole family. I just love these family dinners. {Although between you and me blogosphere, I wish people weren’t freaked out by my nursing Emmett John. But that’s another post, for another time.}

Well, we’re off to party. Emmett John has been fed. And I hear a family debate brewing. 🙂 I’ll be back later with updates on the family.

{Ever notice how when you start a blog, get a rhythm going and then have to stop you can’t quite get that groove back later? I hate that.}
