Well, I had my first migraine this morning. On the way to work, I started seeing "stars" in the left eye. I didn't think much about it since everyone had their headlights on. However, it went on for about an hour. Reading the computer screen became very difficult. I didn't know what it was and started freaking out. I had trauma to my brain from my wreck 7 years ago and that was the first thing that came to mind. So I called the doctor. The nurse said it was probably a migraine but to come in and see the doctor anyway. The "stars" went away and turned into a severe headache. I went down the street to my doctor. He gave me a shot and a prescription. He said it would start to work in 30 min. to an hour. Unfortunately, that meant I had to come back to work. So now it's gone away but I wonder why it happened.....

Some people say it can be caused by sinus trouble. My sinuses have been acting up a little. Or it could be caused by stress. Stressed? I'm not stressed. My friend reminded me that I am working 2 jobs (JDA and Mary Kay), in charge of the family finances (very difficult), and we are trying to have a baby (going to the fertility doc tomorrow). I guess I had forgotten about all of this somewhere during my headache. Yes, I guess subconsciously I am pretty stressed. I put on a good front though. We cooked dinner and watched a movie last night. I just started a new Bible study too. And we're going to the beach this weekend. I'm sure hoping the beach trip eases my stress a little. Just pray for me and all that is going on in my life. :)

Wedding Pictures

Check out the wedding pictures I posted on my old blog (to the right). I just got the cd of all of my pictures from the photographer. I love looking through them remembering the happiest day of my life! I hope you can tell how happy that I truly am in all my pictures. Everything about the day was absolutely perfect! I wouldn't change anything (except maybe the air conditioner going out during pictures). I prayed about it and God made my day perfect! :) Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do. God bless!

Marriage and Babies

Ok. I don't know how good I'm going to be at this but I'm going to try. I don't even know who will read it but here it goes....

I've been married for about 14 months now. It's so much fun. It's like living and spending lots of time with your very best friend. It's difficult at times but for the most part, it is wonderful. Right after we got married, I read The Power of a Praying Wife. I HIGHLY recommend that book for anyone who is married or getting married. It taught me to pick my battles and pray about things when I get mad and frustrated. This has saved a lot of fighting. Due to this... we hardly ever fight. Most of the time, it's just not worth it. We are enjoying life right now. We watch lots of movies, travel, experiment cooking and just spend quality time together. We have, however, been trying to get pregnant for about a year now. Most of you know that Doug is going to turn 38 at the end of this month. We're ready for kids. I know it is all in God's control and I have faith that he will give me the desires of my heart. Since nothing has happened yet, I have an appointment with the fertility doctor next week. I'm very nervous. Just pray for me and us. It is very hard to understand how so many people get pregnant accidentally. It's amazing how many people have gone through this that you didn't know about. Our bible study at church has shown me that I'm not that different and there is hope. Seems like no matter what happens in this situation, there is someone to talk to who has been through it. God provides and is ALWAYS in control! I will let you know how it goes!
