"What happens if you snort a bunch of Midol?"

Your nasal passages would feel like they're on fire. And after all of that, you won't get high and then you'll feel really stupid. Try shoving it up your ass, it might be more effective that way! Jeez. Don't people grow pot anymore?

This answer is to the handful of people this week who actually typed that question into Google and found my blog. /waves! Ahh the joys of the keyword analysis. I guess I should check it out more often, because some of the things people type into search engines that bring them here, to my boring blog, make me laugh. It truly takes all sorts to run the world. I guess if everyone were the same, this world would be one boring place.

I'm having kind of a lazy, unmotivated week. Yes, there's plenty that needs to be going on, and yes, I have a lot of work to do for class which I *am* getting done, but I don't really want to do it. Honestly, although I really enjoy my instructor this block and the information is somewhat interesting, I'm pretty burned out and I'm anxious to start a new class. As much as I want to keep up with my class there is a small part of me that regrets changing my schedule to get rid of the break I had originally planned. Maybe a break would do me some good. Maybe though I just need to push through this burn out I'm facing, suck it up and go on. Perhaps the new block I start next week will help motivate me.

It feels like all of my friends are experiencing extremely rough patches in life, and all at the same time. It's like there is something in the drinking water and it's very frustrating for me because there's really nothing I can do to make anything better for them. I like to fix things, and to me, just "being there" for someone when they need to talk just doesn't seem effective enough during times like this. It's hard to sit back and watch people go through hard things and not have a brilliant idea or solution that will help. It sucks. I think about them though, I wish good things for them, and hope that eventually everything will work out for the best. And with the friends who are going through hard times is the friend who showed their true colors and turned out to be capable of things I never expected, especially at this point in life. Which is okay in the end, I guess. I'm just glad that communication with other people helped everyone understand what was really going on, because I think in the end it prevented things from being worse.

And, for every bad thing there are good things that come from the situation, as I've met new people, reconnected with friends from my past and I'm getting to know people I've hung out with that I didn't really get a chance to know before, so that's pretty dang cool too. The first picture up top is from a BBQ this weekend with friends. My hubby and I hung out with my friend Annie, who I've known for 21 years. In the back with the hat is Daniul, whom I've known for about 23 years and even dated back in high school, and Thomas is a new friend that I've totally clicked with The second picture is Thomas (in Dan's hat), me, and Dan (with the middle finger that has a mind of its own). Made for a really nice day and I hope that we all get the chance to do it again soon.

In other news, my blog is finally getting a much needed face-lift. I think I've been at this blog for over 4 years now without ever having the ability to personalize it and put a bit of me on it aside from my words and photographs. Everything has always been somewhat generic and I've not really had a sense of true "ownership", but thanks to a new internet friend, that will be changing here in the next week or so. If you're interested in seeking help with sprucing up your own blog, feel free to contact her-you can find her link here on my blog as my follower, and in tomorrow's post I will put up a link and maybe snag a button from her site for people to visit if there's one available.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week--remember...tomorrow is Friday!!!

I just found this page because I was wondering if snorting Midol would cause the effects (pain relief) to occur faster. I have severe PMDD and autoimmune conditions, and every type of prescription and over-the-counter medication seems to fail.

So maybe you should provide links to other pain relief sites and rehab locations because your site is so popular for this? :)

This is a knitting blog. I'm not in the business of conducting or providing medical research, nor am I going to Google rehab facilities for you.
There are many rehab facilities that you can come up with all by yourself (I mean, you made it here, right?) or with the assistance of your doctor.
