I can’t even begin to fill y’all in on the hellish week that was our last week. I mean, really: I can’t. I can’t because there are two things I don’t talk about on here, and the one that is NOT my employment spiraled into something unexpected last week and MAN, there were lots of sleepless nights and stress headaches and many, many “dress rehearsals” for dialogue that no one wants to have.
I often complain that I have no friends or whatever I say and I am gobsmacked by how wrong that statement truly is. All it took was one text message on Tuesday night for a full-on expedition to take place, and I have to say that I’m extremely grateful. Even when we had to have a sudden and unexpected “adults only” meeting on Saturday night, we were blessed to find that we are always surrounded by amazing people. Some family by blood, others by love. We are blessed.
After last week, we decided to take a little getaway. Bryan had to do some work in Chattanooga and I love that city and Tony could be easily swayed by the word “hotel”, so off we went.
While we did live lavishly by doing touristy things like the Creative Discovery Children’s Museum (which coincidentally, Bryan and I visited by ourselves about five years ago to almost the day), we also did things that were normal, just with different air. We saw Beauty & The Beast in 3D. We went to a mall where Tony exhausted himself in the kids’ playyard. We spent entirely too much time playing hide & seek in our hotel room. We ate hot Krispy Kreme donuts in our pajamas.
Bryan had a few meetings set up during the day on Friday, so Tony and I were left to our own devices, where we entertained eachother. Saturday was entirely at our discretion, and although it was a nasty rainy day, a gift shop umbrella gave us the freedom to wander around downtown on a whim.
It was exactly the break we needed, since everything started back up the minute we came home.
But because our lungs were now refreshed with new air, we felt ready to start tackling it all again.
