- Wedding: October 2010
I’m so upset Bees. A few months ago, we were planning a 5 day trip for our 1st anniversary to Santa Fe and to see the Balloon Festival. But it had to be cancelled because my Darling Husband broke his wrist and all the money that we were going to use for the trip went to physical therapy. Well, I was super bummed out, but I eventually got over it.
So, we ended up planning to use some points that Darling Husband has to get a room for free at a nearby resort for this weekend. Which was fine with me. At least we were going to be able to go away for 1 night. It was great because we have no extra money right now, so being free is always a good thing!
Also a sidenote: My birthday was a month ago and it totally sucked. There were wildfires in TX and the family party I was at ended up having to be evacuated, my cake sucked, and it was basically ruined. I am grateful that my family’s house was fine though.
Fast forward to this week… Darling Husband and I are taking care of my 2 nieces for the whole week while my brother and sister-in-law take a trip to Cabo San Lucas (I’m not going to even get started on how jealous I am and the pity party I threw for myself once I heard). Well, it’s been crazy stressful becoming insta-parents of 2 little girls, which made me so glad to have this weekend. Well…. we got our first big rain in *months* and I was walking across a parking lot, slipped and twisted my ankle really badly, fell on my other knee and got road rash, all while holding my little niece who ended up bumping her head too.
So now, I’m laid up on the couch with my foot propped up and iced, while trying to take care of my nieces for the past few days. Thankfully, my Darling Husband was able to stay home from work and my sister and Mom came over to help.
So here I am, Limpy McLimperson… We were still going to go to the resort, but just request a room close to the elevators. Still go to dinner… I’d just limp around. I can handle that…. Well…! I just found out that I have lice!! Needless to say, I’m sitting here crying because we have to cancel our hotel and lose our one free night. I’m just so upset because everthing seems to be going wrong.
The only good thing is we get a free mini-cake from the baker that made our wedding cake. Darling Husband is going to have to fight me for it, because I’m pretty sure I’m going to want to eat the whole thing.
Sorry for the novel. If you made it this far, thanks for listening.
