20 days ago I knew I was flying out to Texas on March 30th but apart from that that's all I had figured out. Very quickly after that the plans all had to change after some sad news from my bestie who I was meant to be staying with in Texas.
Thankfully I have parents who "fix things", especially when I have problems. So they quickly started debates with the wedding hotel to find me a room, organised transport from the hotel (which is about 50 miles away from the hotel) and basically patched the trip back together.
I then successfully applied for visa's for both the States and Canada. All by myself, cha-ching.
Fast-forward to now, I'm recovering from a viral infection that raised it's ugly head 8 days ago and has held on with a grim determination, leaving me with fluid in my middle ear (who knows), dizziness, nausea and a general lack of energy which means going out and moving is a gargantuan effort (that leaves me feeling even worse). So I'm facing down my departure date with some trepidation.
I'm concerned that when I fly out my history of sinusitis will raise it's ugly head and irritate my already blocked ears to the point that they block further down causing disgustingly painful stabs down my neck (been there, not fun). So the doctor prescribed a nose spray... nose sprays are weird things and I'm certain I don't like them. I would have preferred an ear spray, I figured that would have worked better seeing as my ear is blocked... but doctor knows best?
Unsurprisingly all the bits I ordered (Mum paid for - thank god for Mum's) from ASOS for the trip, I've pretty much sent everything back now apart from one dress and the jeggings I have yet to try on. I know, don't judge me, I didn't want to buy leggings or exercise leggings as they give a lot more bumps out than I want to show... So I figured jeggings would have more structural support to keep all the lumps and bumps at bay. Who knows till I try them on though right - they may be part of the return pile!
The dresses I ordered from ASOS to wear for the wedding were a disaster, so we opted instead (thanks Mum) to go back to Carolyn Baxter who once made me a dress before (for Opa's 80th birthday celebrations). So she has the happy/unhappy job of making me a dress for this wedding, and one on back order for when I get back for the wedding in September.
Anyways Sean has turned on "The Mist" after my epic description of the first 15 minutes and why I'd turned it off after 15 minutes... It will no doubt live up to my epic description and be turned off again.
