Things that make you go "owww"


My life is passing before my eyes.

Not because I'm dying and having any last minute glimpses or anything, just because the days really are passing that fast.

Geeze.

I'm getting married in a matter of double-digit days.

I should be overwhelmed at all that I have to do between now and then, especially when I figure in the cost of things that need to be done between now and then, but honestly, I'm looking forward to it for many reasons.

The forerunners of those reasons are that I'll be marrying the man of my dreams (and my best friend) and I'll get a week of peace and rest and relaxation and not worrying about money or driving here, there, and everywhere.

Heaven.

Instead I'm in a chair, smelling like sweat with potting soil under my nails, spray paint on my fingers and another pulled muscle in my side.

Yes, another.

I pulled a muscle last week from coughing.

And, after a week, it finally was healing and feeling much better.

Until I sneezed this morning and hurt the blessed thing AGAIN.

Except this time it hurts worse.

And I want to be a little wimp about it and curl up in my bed and not cough or sneeze or yawn or do anything that makes it hurt.

Because half of everything I do makes it hurt.

But I can't.

Because I have a son.

And a fiance.

And a home.

And a job.

And an insurance exam tomorrow.

Which puts me in this chair, smelling like sweat with potting soil under my nails, spray paint on my fingers and another pulled muscle in my side, about to study some more for that insurance exam.

Guess I better get to it.

But stay tuned, upcoming blogs include mine and Jason's next phones (if my house in Fordyce sells and we once again have money someday...), bathroom etiquette and my public toilet seat rant, as well as...hmmm.....well, just stick around and see!

Happy Hump Day!
