I’m back from the ‘Oh-my-God-life-is-hectic” break that I put myself on. Between packing, car appointement, gettting a rental (stupid car), going back for the car an hour before the bachelorette party, wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, hair appointment, wedding, reception, gift opening, Brad’s parent’s anniversary dinner (who I adore and was asked to come celebrate with my now adopted family the day after the wedding) wedding week was rough. So many things went on I could barely sleep, or even think.
And now, it is over. Currently the only things I have to do is wait for condo things to finalize, then begin bringing stuff over. The car, with it’s “cry for an hour” price tag to get fixed is finally fixed, and hopefully won’t have to have anything like it did for a while. We had some crazy storms the other day, three tornadoes touched down here in Louisville! I have a mini liveblogging session on my tumblr. I was stuck at Heather and Brad’s for a while with the tornado sirens going off for about three hours straight. It went from severe thunderstorm, to rain, to sirens, to warning on TV in literally 30 seconds. Caught everyone off guard. Thankfully, none hit near enough to me that I had to go hide in a closet. Most know this, but tornadoes are one of my greatest fears of all time, so it was stressful. The closest hit was Churchill Downs (where the Kentucky Derby is run). It’s about 3-4 miles away from downtown. The barns suffered the most damage, but none of the horses-who were scheduled for races-were hurt or escaped for long nor did anyone else in the living quarters. It was a little more hectic than the last time we had tornado warnings. Besides the fact that we didn’t get any tornadoes to touch down, this time it was four separate storms that brought torrential rain and by the time I left Heather and Brad’s, I basically had to swim home. Fun times. Crazy storm was crazy.
So that’s my life so far. No weigh-ins to report, but I do know that I’ve gained weight. Booze and carbs and being extremely lazy this week is to account for that fact. Obviously last Sunday was too busy for me to focus on anything but wedding stuff so this coming Sunday will be the first one in two (?) weeks. I will say it might be skewed because of the fact that tomorrow is Rebecca’s big move things into the van day so I’ll be non stop moving furniture and other heavy pieces most of the day (with the promise of beer and pizza…so maybe it’ll all balance out).
p.s. Huzzah for post number 42!
