Never-ending Headache

Happy Sunday to y’all! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and of course, staying safe. I found out some slightly upsetting information the other day. The mother of a friend of mine from high school has COVID. Unfortunately, so many people are under the impression that COVID is something from the past and is long gone now, but the hard truth is, that COVID is still lingering around and invading the lives of too many. My husband and I have done everything possible to stay safe and I think we are the only two people in our circle of friends and family that have not gotten COVID.

I have been unable to do a post for several days now because I have been battling with an evil headache/migraine/sinuses. Over the past several days, this pain has eased up and came back full force numerous times. Considering I have been used to pain for over 20 years, I can normally ignore the pain, but head pain is something I have not learned to ignore. This typically puts me in the bed or on the couch with the cats in misery. If I had to guess, I think this is coming from the weather changes and stress. We are just now in June and the temperatures where I live have already been too close to 100 degrees. I am dreading the next several months of summertime heat!!!!

Regardless of any stress or pain, I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am for June 10th when I get to meet my literary idol, James Patterson. I know this meet and greet will only be a few minutes to tell him how honored I am to meet him, shake his hand, and hopefully get a picture with him, but those few minutes will be amazing! Many people dream to meet a celebrity or rock star, but this man is a rock star in my eyes. I am in complete awe of his writing abilities and only wish I had his talent. I do not think I have ever looked forward to something so much in my life. I am excited and a little nervous because I do not want to become tongue tide and not be able to tell him how much I appreciate his work and enjoyable books!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and that you might have some advice for when you meet your idol! Today is the last day of the weekend, so I hope you enjoy it to the fullest. Tomorrow is another Monday when the new week starts, so rest up and get prepared. I am only working four days because I am off on Friday to go meet James Patterson. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. There is a big Covid outbreak going on right now in my community and I was so grateful to see that the majority of the shopping in the grocery store with me were wearing masks. I am getting my Evusheld injections next week and I can’t wait because the booster that I got in January is surely no longer effective. I’m so sorry that you have a headache going; I don’t do very well with headaches either. I envy you meeting James Patterson!

    • I have heard there has been a spike in COVID cases around the country. Unfortunately, people in my state probably still think it is not that serious. I hardly leave the house anymore, but when I do I wear a mask. I should have gotten another booster before we go to meet James Patterson, but we will wear a mask.

      • I had planned to get another booster, but now I am going to look into Evusheld. I am going to hate wearing a mask to meet James Patterson, especially if he agrees to a picture. I might have to remove the mask for a minute!!

      • I was told that there is a diminishing return on getting more boosters (I’ve already boosted twice and would need the third this month) and that the Evusheld is better protection. I got the shots (there are two) Tuesday and I didn’t even notice a bump in my symptoms the next day, not even soreness at the injection site. I was told to get an updated booster/vaccine as soon as they become available.

  2. I would be excited to meet James Patterson too ! Cool! I hear you on the headaches -sinuses-migraines issue- ongoing – if I go more than a week it is a bonus!
    Had a great Music Festival outdoor weekend!

    • I am probably a little too excited to meet James Patterson, but he is my favorite author and I never thought this would happen. I am extremely sick and tired of these headaches, migraines, and sinus issues, but I guess it could be worst.
      That is exciting you were able to go to an outdoor Music Festival. I cannot remember the last time we saw live music. I hope you enjoyed it!! What kind of music was it?


      • A variety of bands – the hip hop was probably under appreciated-but he had a good voice! I have noticed less headaches with less red meat, wine and good indoor hepa filter – but maybe is placebo effect lol
