Wow, a wedding is so much work!!
Add to that the fact that an old knee injury of mine has flared up so badly that I can’t walk around for more than an hour without severe pain. UGH. Ah well, I went to the chiropractor yesterday and he moved my shin bone back into place (as it had been pulled crooked by my IT Band) and informed me that I have ITB Syndrome, which comes from running. Hmmmm, given that I already have a weak knee, he didn’t seem to think that running should be my cardio of choice. He suggested I take up cycling instead. That could be a fun addition to my workouts, I think, but I also think I may have to get an elliptical machine so I can run with low impact.
Lovely timing for all of this right??
But, as if that wasn’t enough…Last Monday (not yesterday) Lindsey sliced the tip off her right index finger. Yep. It’s healing though! And I think she may be able to go without a bandaid on our wedding day! Also, Lindsey got a huge promotion, which sometimes seems to be leaving her mind somewhere in work world a great majority of the time. I finished my job nannying for the coolest little guy ever to begin working from home full time on my writing and art. AND we decided we needed a bigger place, found said bigger place (it’s a miracle!! can’t wait to show you all pictures!), and are busy de-clutter our current place so it can be shown for the next renter. Whaaaaat?
I’m serious; this really has all happened in the last 3 weeks.
It couldn’t be crazier right now, but I’m incredibly excited about everything wonderful going on. I really really really do think, though, that this honeymoon coming up is going to mean more to the two of us than anyone can imagine. :D
On Saturday we actually managed to spend some time relaxing by going with some sweet friends (really more like family) of ours to a Rockies Baseball game. Unfortunately the Rockies kinda (ok, totally) suck this year, but it sure was fun to get some non-wedding (or other stress) related time in!
It was so good to laugh! And I laughed a lot. :)
Some people might think we’re crazy for going to a ball game the weekend before our wedding (with all the other stuff going on in our lives as well), but we’ve got to keep the quality flowing in our lives, people! Even when it’s hard! Even when life tries to take those restful moments away from us. Quality time can still happen!!
In other news, I just CAN’T WAIT to show all of you the exciting new changes coming to A Better Story in October!! It’s gonna be some stellar fun!
I’m off to keep going on today’s to-do list. People start arriving tomorrow for the first day of our wedding week…tomorrow!!! Tomorrow people, tomorrow the festivities begin! It’s gonna be a crazy fun wonderful week, and I’m so glad it’s finally here. :)
