This headache just won't quit. It's been better or worse, but hasn't fully gone away. I'm not sure if it is stress-related, diet-related, weather-related, or what, but I want it to GO AWAY.
Aside from the headache, my weekend was good. The play Friday night was okay - some good acting, some bad acting, nothing spectacular. My friend's performance was the best of the bunch, and it was great to see her perform outside of acting class.
Saturday we went to the Queen Mary and some other locations to see about getting married onboard ths ship or at some other locations near there. The ship was clearly fantastic in its day, but is faded glory now, and just didn't feel like the kind of place we want to get married. Some of the other places we looked at look very promising, though. My head was aching something fierce Saturday, and when we got home I napped for over 2 hours to try to get rid of my headache so that I would be functional for Gordon's mom's party that night. Fortunately, it worked, and I was relatively bright-eyed for the party. That was a very good thing since Gordon and I were in the spotlight all evening - his mom announced our engagement at the party. All her friends were so kind - one couple offered to let us have our wedding at their home in Malibu (ocean view, and apparently a gorgeous home), another offered to give me her necklace when I admired it and said that it would go with my wedding dress (I told her perhaps it could be my 'something borrowed'). Everyone said what a great guy I am getting. It was a great party, and lots of fun. We got home about 1:30, and were asleep by 2am.
Sunday we had to get up by 9 or so to go to Anne's father's house for brunch. Traffic was light, so we got there in no time, and had a lovely time, but the three of us were so tired that we sat around the table and yawned most of the time. Anne's dad was laughing at us 'young ones' being so tired. After brunch, we ran a couple of errands, and then went home so I could do some paperwork. I HAD to take another nap, though - my head was aching again, and I just couldn't tackle that paperwork without some rest. After my nap, Gordon made some dinner - rice pasta with vegetables and chicken. Yum. I worked on my papers for about 4 hours total, and finally got it all done about 10:30 last night and was plum tuckered out.
This will be a busy few days - a movie at UCLA tonight, Anne tomorrow night, and my last acting class on Wednesday. Somewhere in there I need to get some groceries to make garlic mashed sweet potatoes, wheat-free stuffing, and chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving Day with Gordon's family.
I just hope my headache goes away so I can enjoy it all.
