Photos and Bullet Points

The headaches have eased up which may or may not be related to me adding gatorade back to my daily diet. Alls I know is it's working so I'm going to stick with it. Yesterday was the first headache free day in awhile.

Of course the crazy gut pain made another appearance at 1am this morning and I've been up since. It took the full arsenal of pain meds to get comfortable. So. Tired. Of. It.

And then when I put on a little makeup - modified glam routine - I poked myself in the eye with the mascara wand. At least now I have the red eyes to match the lack of sleep.

Honestly, I slept really well from around 8pm to 1am so I did have some quality shut eye.

Today I'm taking Austin and Tasha food shopping since they will be pet sitting for us while we're out of town. Her mom and dad both cook and Austin cooks at their house some as well but they'll be here around the clock so we have to make sure they have stuff that they can cook and will eat.

I'm also finishing Oliver's shower gift today, hopefully, time and troubles permitting.

Tomorrow my parents will leave to go down to Riverdale to check out the old homestead. They're selling the house I grew up in to the family that lives across the street. We need to be on the South side of town on Saturday for Oliver's shower and for my mom's oldest brother's birthday party. Saturday will be crazy busy so we thought driving down the day before would at least save on our wear and tear.

I might not be able to go down until Saturday, though, because Cosette has a doctors appointment tomorrow. It's just a weight check - and she appears to be gaining well because she's getting little chubby rolls on her arms. We're going to try to postpone the appointment so that I can go ahead and go down to Riverdale with my parents. We shall see.

If I can't go down until Saturday I'll ride with my brother and sister-in-law and the redheads so I'm still not going to have to drive. I'm nervous to get that far from home and have to drive back because of the whole headache/dizziness thing.

We'll be back home late Saturday evening and then will have Sunday and Monday to rest and pack for our trip.

We leave for New York Tuesday morning. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights we're staying at the Bride's parents' New York house in Pelham, NY. It's sort of North East of New York City, the same place we stayed when we went up for the shower.

Wednesday me, Pop, Jim, Angie, Sarabeth and Jamie are going to see Wicked.

Thursday we'll travel to Old Lyme, Connecticut. I think there's a manicure and pizza party on the agenda.

Our family is staying together on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in Old Lyme.

Friday we have the rehearsal.

Saturday we're going to the Chapel.

Sunday morning we have brunch at the Bride's parents' house in Connecticut and then head home.

I'm excited but a bit anxious. Thats a lot of stuff in the next week. We've tried to build in "recovery time" every day but it's also a really rare opportunity to see a lot of people and things and I don't want to miss a thing!

I'll try to keep things updated. You've survived four years of pretty boring blogging so I owe you a few exciting posts! Have a great weekend. Love and hugs, y'all!
