I've been suffering with a lot of headaches lately. Its something I've struggled with my whole life, but the last two years they have grown immensely in intensity and frequency, as many as 3 weeks out of the month. It's been a trying time, as the medication I've tried hasn't worked very well and I've tried to manage the side effects. Once I get a headache, nothing works to get rid of it. I'm currently taking hormone replacements not only for my thyroid but now my progesterone as well. One of my good friends gave me a pill organizer for my birthday for all the medication I'm on, which is sort of a joke between us but really it is handy. The progesterone is only knocking out about half of my headaches, which means I still get about 3 a week. This day that Aspen made me the parfait I was laying in bed trying to get rid of one. My next step is to see a headache specialist, which I didn't even know existed! I'm praying and hoping that he can help me. It's been hard giving up some of the things I love because of this, and to fulfill all of my responsibilities in the way I want.
Our condo was through the snowy trail and to the right.

Part of the gift Leslie and I received from Eric and Matt was a day at the spa. Actually we each booked a massage at Zenergy Spa, which we found out was part of Zenergy Health Club. Included with any 50 minute service at the spa was full access to the health club, which included fitness classes, a pool and hot tub, sauna, and gym. It was an amazing deal. We were in heaven!!! Les and I started the day with a pilates class, then headed to the gym for a few hours. After that we spent some time chatting in the sauna, then showered and headed to the spa for our massages. We ended our day there by showering again and getting ready for the day (although it was 4:30 by then ;).
The view from the pool, which we didn't have time to play in. Next time.
