My cousin's funeral was absolutely gut-wrenching, and I started bawling my heart-out the second I was driving home.

However, it was also really, really beautiful. The church was absolutely stuffed with people...standing room only.There were 600 people there. The Dean from his prep school spoke, and the fact that he remembered so much about him since he graduated 20 years ago, says it all.

I think if you have a turn-out at your funeral like that because SO many people loved you and you touched that many people, that even if you only had 38 years, then that means you lived them so right.

I was reading through a bunch of emails from him the other night, and so many times he'd comment on something I wrote about or observation I made and say how much it made him laugh. The fact that I made him smile or laugh over the past several years means a lot to me right now.

(((CIBC))), I am so sorry for your loss.

You are right. It is a beautiful and touching thing to see so many at a funeral. It does mean that person did something right.

I hate it when it does the snow-rain-snow. Makes it a super slushy, gross, slippery mess on the roads.

It's snowing here, but it's not awful.

I'm having so much fun with my commissions, it makes me wonder why I ever stopped painting in the first place!

Either I just had a case of the STOOPID or somebody effed up the elliptical I used to use at the gym. It would not let me turn down the resistance.

Spring, love the purse! The studs make me cross-eyed, something's going on there and it confuses me.

I think it's because there are three different types of studs all mixed up. If it had silver metal studs that were all the same it wouldn't be so bad, it's weird as is for sure.

I don't get it about ruffles.

Jeepy, I am talking to you, too.

Deenie, I use to hate ruffles. A lot. A whole lot.

Now I love them, go figure.

This Dudette, she can't abide ruffles (although I remember I loved the ruffles on my underpants when I was about five years old).

I understand about changing tastes. I used to love heels. Now they just slow me down.

Yes, that is a slushy mess. I am not happy at the moment. Forecasters completely missed the mark. NOAA was the only source I trusted, and they were still saying no accumulation today and a high of 44 when we had 2 inches on the ground. It stopped at 3 but we will have another round tonight, and in the morning. I expect 6 or 7 inches by the time it's done.

I hope they are just trying a new meteorologist out. It's tricky to forecast in my area anyway. The mountains make their own weather. When someone does a good job, I like them to stay around.

I do heat to the side of my face for 1 minute, massage inside and out for about 30 seconds then ice for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times total.

I hope you're able to get some relief.
Thanks. I have been looking up exercises but they seem to irritate it further. I have been applying some gentle massage along the temples and jaw which soothes it for the time being. I just applied ice which actually was great. I may to the ice/heat switcheroo today along with applying some Oragel to that weird tendon thing in my mouth.

I am having flashbacks to thelio's ball thingy post
Sounds like you have knots in the temporalis muscle. I have success with massaging a spot just above and to the front of the temple (toward the eye) and just above and to the back of the temple (on my hair). When I massage these spots, it relieves any eye and ear pressure I may also have.

Typically, massaging the knots in your face is supposed to hurt more at first. It sucks, but it means you are using enough pressure to actually work it out.

Yay! I'm so happy to hear this! I totally believe in the healing powers of massage

I don't know what it is with the ruffle, claudine. I just love them for some reason. I got a little purple ruffle bag at a Ladie's Day event today. : )

murrrcat, any and all alcohol give me migraines. I'm having a rum and coke right now, with a Maxalt chaser.
And too many drinks will definitely make me throw up every time
Great fun.
And yes, I refuse to give up booze all together. I just drink super light beer and make my mixed drinks very weak.

One day I will make it to the grocery store. I don't know when, but it will happen. Until then it's me and the stuff in the back of the pantry.
