Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks, Snip. Yes, peppermint or ginger work well for me. It isn't quite a migraine but I am not trying to keep it that way. It has tried a couple of times but subsided to a regular headache quickly.

I use peppermint and ginger too. Ginger for the nausea and peppermint for the pain. If I don't catch mine when my flashing starts it's game over for 3 days sometimes longer.
I really do hope for your sake it gets better soon!

When I was a kid, I read "My Friend Flika" by Mary O'Hara. There is a section in there where Rob McLaughlin mentions that there is snow already on the mountains. They have to get the horses rounded up before the first snow storm comes. It is July in Wyoming. I thought that the author was making that up. It never snows before November. Or so I thought as a fifth grader.

Babetoo, I know how you feel. My oldest is 56, then 55, 50 and then 40. I am the mother of old kids.

Gearing up to clean the kitchen and dung out the refrigerator. The fridge guy is supposed to come tomorrow and fix the broken deli drawer post and replace the gasket on our 2 year old fridge, which I happily discovered is still under warrantee! Yay! DH may have to supervise as I have meetings all afternoon, unless fridge guy comes in the morning, then I can break away.

Today is a gorgeous Fall day. After yesterday's continual rain and wind we needed this. So I am hoping to mow the yard for maybe the next to last time and brush hog out back for definitely the last time of the season.

For the last 1-1/2 hours though, before I can mow, I have been busy with my nut wizard

Another 1-1/2 hours and I should be good to go
I'm glad I only have to do this every other year.
