All I Want For Christmas Is a Refill of My Migraine Rx

Ah, the annual quest to take the perfect Christmas card picture! Migraine fodder if ever there was and, this year was no exception. Thank goodness for my Imitrex inhaler as it was the only thing standing between me and a date with the master bathroom toilet.

On the other hand, whew; Christmas cards done for another year! Except, I can’t decide which design to order so, a little help here? Which card do you like better? Inquiring minds want to know.

I wish I could say the weekend was productive in ways other than wrestling my children into acceptable holiday poses but, not so much.

I did manage to get the last of the evergreen garland hung around the porch and I even found the energy to festoon it with huge red bows but, when it came time to start my holiday baking, I just wasn’t that into it and, like, I’m sorry chocolate chippers, it isn’t you, it’s me. I hope we can still be friends.

Hopefully, tonight; I will find the magic energy reserves necessary to begin properly preparing for the season. I have a recipe for chocolate mice that the children are clamoring for and I promised that we could try them this year.

Plus, chocolate is good for you and, I have no doubt, will one day be scientifically proven to prevent migraines. In the meantime, did I mention, thank goodness for Imitrex?


  1. I like the JOY one the best but they are both really cute.

    I tried to do some of my Christmas baking too but just couldn't get into it. Maybe next weekend.

  2. You're so creative! I love both of the cards.

    Isn't migraine medicine great? Except that it's SO dang expensive. I usually use Relpax, but I've found that the OTC Excedrin Migraine works just as well for me. Much less expensive.

  3. I think I like the JOY one better, but they are both really cute.

  4. Oh my gosh, that's so creative. If it were me, i'd order both and just send them randomly, like those magazines do with different covers sometimes. So cute!

  5. I like the Joy card.
    I got the picture taken (hot chocolate is great bribery), cards ordered, and cards picked up today. LOVE Costco's quickie XMAS cards. :)
    As for migraine meds, I don't have any because I haven't been officially diagnosed. Mine are mostly optical anyway. Bleh.

  6. Love both of the cards! If I had to pick, I'd go with JOY.

    And you people who actually do a thing called "holiday baking?" I am in awe of you. I consider it a good year if we manage to get the box from the Christmas tree out of sight...

  7. I'm the odd one out because I like the pout!!

  8. OMG PONIES!!!1! those are the best cards EVER. Why do I not have any cool friends? Why am I not cooler? I am TOTALLY STEALING YOUR IDEAS.

    *pant pant*

    I vote for JOY, but they are BOTH awesome. The JOY one blew out the circuitry in my brain, though.
