Busy Weekends

It's been a busy weekend, starting with Mr. T's Confirmation on Friday night.

He chose his older brother as his Sponsor.

Damian. Why did he choose Damian? He spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to choose. He went through family names, random names, rolling them off his tongue, seeing how they would feel with HIM.

Then he started researching what Saints were associated with various things he might want to do as a life career. He stumbled on Damian and Medicine since he's been thinking about Medical school. I never said a word, but when he chose it, I finally said, 'I have a picture of Joe's of St. Cosmas and Damian... the twins. It is odd you chose St. Damian when Joe's home was full of pictures of him and we have one in the guest room."

Mr. T had no idea.

The picture is now in his bedroom.

Here's a picture of the three boys... yes, they have the same father, why do you ask? ;-)

You can see that Bones is starting to lean out into his man-frame. His shoulders and neck are starting to change as his face thins.

I spent yesterday afternoon laid up in bed with the mother of all migraines. It was caused by a couple things, one of them being dehydration due to an Eagle Scout project I assisted with at one of the local VFW's. I think I finally shook the migraine today. I felt it as a shadow most of the day, which made me nervous.

Pix of the project tomorrow. It came out really nice. I'm still speckled with rustoleum black paint. That's attractive...

I have to say I see a strong resemblance between them in that pic... which is odd as I'm the person who doesn't "do" faces well.

On the migraine, since I've had so many I can tell you that mostly the day after is just bleh. Even though I had to function with them on a regular basis, it was like slogging through molasses the day after. I'm very happy they seem to have mostly departed (although I recently had one so they haven't gone completely *sigh*). Hope you feel much better tomorrow.

Maybe in younger pictures it was harder to tell they were 'full' brothers...but you can sure see that they are here. All of them good-looking kids, too.

Congratulations to Mr. T on his confirmation.

And may you have a quick recovery, too.

I think as they get older and look more like their father, morphing into man-mode, they look more alike. It's been... three or four years since I had three people ask in the same week, "Same father?" Crazy. There are similarities now.

Yesterday and last night was when I got brain fog. That's what I call the day after a migraine. As Teresa put it, it's 'bleh'. This was the worst one I'd had in a long long time, although I didn't lose my vision in this one.

This losing the vision thing is new and a bit unnerving. I'd almost rather be vomiting and wanting to bash my head in with a hammer than lose my vision. I get concerned it's not going to come back. Fortunately, I have warning signs I can readily pick up on and now that there are other drivers in the family, I know I won't be stranded if I'm out and about and it happens.
