Migraine. Woke up at 3:30 hurting and took tylenol. Asleep it doesn't hurt. Up at 6:30 to sit in recliner and sleep. It hurts less sitting up. Can't focus very well. Weepy eye on the left, aching side. Classic migraine. Whole left side aches, neck too. Centered behind my eye and temple. Nausea comes in waves. I ate two buttered toast and kept it down, then took 800mg Ibuprophen. Usually that does the trick. Not this time. Slept upright until 10AM and ate a beef sandwich. Kept it down and took two more acetaminophen. Pain is more tolerable, but still there. Any movement intensifies the pain.

Can't concentrate well, or follow a story in the paper. Eyes keep closing, and mind skitters away from complexity or light. Listening to NPR is OK, but more like background chatter.

It's a beautiful day outside. I have to get organized for the splits to start the new queens. I have to get ready for the trip to DC. We're out of almost everything. A Walmart trip is needed.

Everything will have to wait until I am able.
