It's 5 o'clock somewhere.
I just received the link to my revised wedding album - which I would approve so it could be printed. I've waited a month for this! I'm so excited!!
So I open it up, and IT'S NOT US! I was so so happy, and then *bam* slap in the face!! So I'm depressed.
This week has brought a number of things that I haven't shared because there just wasn't the right thread and I didn't feel like spamming Chit Chat. So now I'm going to spew them here because everything's built up - both good and bad.
1. My grandmother passed away - most of yall know that. My dad just got home yesterday and surprised me with my grandmother's fur coat. I cried. She wore it all the time, and it's beautiful, and I feel like I have a part of her back with me. It fits pretty perfectly. I put my hands in the pockets and discovered her satin white gloves that she would wear to the yacht club parties in the winter. More tears. I love to have this in my possession, and I'm so glad my dad thought to give it to me.
2. Work has been a bitch this week. I've been made to feel like shit by some administrators over documentation of something, and then I didn't think quickly enough about a patient's condition before giving all this medication to "fix" a problem (but discovered too late why the problem occurred and was a non-medication fix) and thought I had almost killed her. So I'm sitting there freaking out for the next 4 hours watching her vital signs. Thankfully, she remained stable and nothing bad happened. But I felt like a terrible nurse. So emotionally taxing.
3. DH is still on the spree about buying this Mercedes. I feel so bad, seeing him sad when I don't get all excited with him. It just makes me sad. I want him to be happy, I want him to have this car. But it's not financially feasible with the debts we owe. Maybe in a year and a half. But he wants the car now. Poor baby. But it makes me sad to see him sad.
4. Our house is framed, insulated, and dry-walled, and brick and stone are going up this week! I was so excited to see the color of the brick and the stone. I'm pretty happy with it. It looks good! I also discovered that the column post outside our front door is not the brick square column that I expected it to be. Instead, its the much desired wooden post with a ledge sitting on the brick column below it. So it's like half and half. Wooden post up top, brick column on the bottom. And I'm SO excited to wrap the post in Christmas lights and set little pumpkins on the ledge - yay decorating! (Not all at once though, not that crazy).
Sorry I had to explode. What little things have been going on that you wished to share but haven't??
