Eight Is Enough…

Eight is enough! No, I’m not talking about the television show from the 1970s called Eight Is Enough and, yes, I’m aware that many of my readers are too young to even know what show I’m talking about.

When I say “eight is enough”, in this case, I’m referring to the number of consecutive days I’ve had a migraine. Eight is really enough. I had a few migraine-free days before that and another 8-day migraine prior to that. I’m hoping to wake up tomorrow and find that 8 was the “magic” number this time too.

Of course, given what’s happening with my hormones combined with the fact that I have an abscessed tooth, I may be engaging in wishful thinking. Hopefully the tooth extraction this Thursday will help regarding migraine triggers. In the meantime, my blood pressure is spiking every time I have a migraine.

I just wanted to take a moment to check in here. Other than those who have seen me pop up occasionally on Facebook, most of you haven’t heard much from me in awhile. (Popping up on Facebook simply takes less time and energy than writing blog posts). Thank you for your continued patience.

By the way, yes I know the number 8 on that golf course sign above is upside down. Everything seems upside down lately. (We’re working on that last one). So, I thought this photo was perfect for now.

Until you mentioned the being upside down I never saw it.

Two more days until your surgery — be over before you know it.

I DO remember that show, very very well. I remember when Elizabeth did a wild dance for a contest. When David divorced his wife. And when the Dad hooked up with the singer. Sacramento it was set it.

Happiness to you.

The 8, that should be.

And set IN, duh.

Indeed I hope that maybe by today the migraine has lifted and you are feeling better Jeanne.

I watched that video you sent, it was beautiful. Thanks!

I sure hope you’re doing better and on the road to recovery. Your poor head! Sending all my healing vibes your way. 🙂

Jeanne, what’s your favorite flower to look at? And please specify color, if that applies.

Wow, it has taken me over a week to reply to blog comments on this post. That’s actually rather pathetic! In fact, I think that’s a new record for me on slow response time. Hopefully people don’t think I’ve abandoned my blog! (Pssst… Please keep those comments coming, everyone. I will get to them eventually. I promise)!

Thank you for being one of the people to leave blog comments while I’ve been very distracted from all things blog-related.

Yes, the 8 was upside-down. Easy to miss.

It really was over before I knew it. I am thankful I was referred to such a great oral surgeon. It went very well.

I thought you might remember that show. Your recollection seems to be more vivid than mine.

Happiness to you too!


Is that you again? Look at you… leaving a double comment. Twice as nice!



The migraines have been on and off lately – but overall it has been less of an issue since I had my tooth extracted. So, I’m thankful that tooth has been addressed. I hope that you’re doing as well as can be expected and I’m sending healing thoughts your way! Thank you too for being one of the people to leave blog comments while I’ve been sidelined.


I’m glad you liked the video. I have been online very little but came across that at random and immediately thought of you.

It has been challenging lately. I am thankful that it may be getting better… little bit by little bit… from where it was a couple of weeks ago. The on and off migraines have really been sapping my energy. We just had our house inspected yesterday (for trying to refinance it to get a lower interest rate). I’m trying to get some energy back. Thank you for being one of the people to leave blog comments while I’ve been away. Thank you for the healing vibes and I hope that you are feeling as well as you can be!


Cool… a triple comment on one post. You’re so sweet! Always up to something thoughtful!! I just sent you an email back regarding your thoughtful inquiry. Your cheerful (gravatar) eye seemingly watching over things on my blog while I have been so sidetracked is reassuring and comforting.

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxxo to the nth power!

Hope you are feeling better. 8 days with a migraine doesn’t sound fun.


8 JeanneNo Gravatar { 11.13.11 at 8:02 pm }


Well, I have other issues going on now (like a very sore tooth). No, 8 days with a migraine is no fun at all. It’s nice to hear from you.
