What a Thanksgiving Break! I can't believe it has come and gone, and I have so much and so LITTLE to show for it. *sigh* (Meaning, I still have an 8" stack of papers that I didn't touch...)
For the break, I had a major list of things I needed to take care of, so I spent much of Wednesday running errands and going to doctor appointments. I only mention it because it has been something I've shared here before. I went to see my doctor again about these crazy migraines I fight on a continued basis. I started taking a new medication called Topomax that has had a pretty negative impact on my memory. Listen, I don't have brain cells to sacrifice! As far as headaches and migraines go, it's a miracle drug, but I find myself forgetting basic language, which is NOT okay. I'm an English teacher, so not having access to basic language can be a huge issue. It's not really forgetting things, it's having this strange lack of access to certain language. Ugh. Not a fun trade off. I'm going to lower the dose a bit and see if that helps the big "dope" factor (as I call it), but hope that the crippling migraines don't come back. I know that many of you who blog and are big readers also suffer from migraines. Have any of you had this issue?
Although my list of reading accomplished over the break was pretty small, I'm happy with what I got through. Here's what I read:
What books or movies did you get through over the Thanksgiving Break? Or, what are you finishing up that you got started?
