A familial visit

DH and I went north this weekend to visit family. Most of our family lives in the Dallas area, although DH's parents live on the south coast of Texas. It was a nice visit with my folks, my Bro, SisIL, nephew #1, and my SisIL's parents. We hung out and visited most of Saturday and ate a lot. Nephew #2 will be arriving in late June, so we'll be going back up to see him when he gets here.
My SisIL is the youngest of seven kids; her parents are about 8-10 years older than mine. They were missionaries/translators with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea for over 35 years (my SisIL was pretty much raised there). When they retired several years ago, they ended up in a the same neighborhood as my Bro and SisIL. They quickly became a part of our family (I don't know if that's good or bad) and we enjoy them.
But today, it's back to work on the new house for us. Besides the usual Monday laundry duties, I need to research where to sell this old Farmall tractor that was left on our property. Our realtor gave us the name of a guy who buys them for parts, and I need to get all the specifics. No, it doesn't run.

CUTE tractor...if you don't get rid of it by October push it out front and build a scarecrow to sit on it!

Hi Lisa,
Thanks so much for your comment. My sister also has migraines but, she has an aura so knows she has a certian amount of time to take her meds and can mostly fend them off. She has also had success with just taking Excedrine Migraine every morning.

I have tried some BP meds - the ones I tried didn't work - (although they weren't the ones you mentioned)I've also tried several seizure drugs that haven't worked. I'm not sure what the next option is - I know she told us at least 2 when we were there last, but I can't remember them. Thankfully hubby always goes with me (he understands way more medical stuff than I do - he is a paramedic)and between the two of us and the notes she writes we can figure it out w/o having to call back.
Like I said, my next appt is in two weeks - maybe the next drug will be the magic one!
Thanks again for stopping by - I want to come back and take time to check out your blog. Love the tractor - are you sure you don't want to just build a big flower bed around it?

Ooooooooooh, girlfriend, I have one word for you: eBay! Put that tractor on eBay and you'll get some extra remodeling money. Or, money for Ginghers. However you choose to spend it.
