Happy Hump Day! We’re supposed to have a whopper of a “Santa Ana Wind Event” Tuesday night and Wednesday. We already have two major fires burning in So Cal (not close to me), and we don’t need anymore breaking out with the predicted wild winds and extremely dry conditions.
I’m also cleaning because we’re having overnight guests for the wedding this weekend, and stuff like that triggers my mostly dormant clean freak But at least I’m spacing it out over several days, and once I do it, it’s off my mind and I won’t worry about it when people are here. What’s hilarious, though, is we’re going to be too busy for anyone to notice, things will be chaotic and messy, and the house will end up a disaster zone. But tell that to my dormant clean freak–that chick is a little crazy, which is why I try to keep her locked in a dark closet and drugged her with wine, LOL.
Now for the other news. You know how many girls dream about their “walk down the aisle” to marry the man they love? My almost daughter-in-law had that dream too.
It did NOT include a broken foot.
Yep, she broke her foot one week before the wedding. She was with her sister and friends on a pre-wedding trip when her heel in the crack of the sidewalk, her foot rolled to the side, and she heard the snap of the bone on the top of her foot. The next day–after she tried to walk it off, LOL, proving that she’s definitely not a wimp–my son took her to Urgent Care and they confirmed the break in her foot. It was just a freak accident that earned her a big boot accessory to her wedding dress, and a different kind of walk (hobble!) down the aisle than she had planned.
And let me just add here, her attitude has been amazing. Of course she’s bummed and had her moments of upset, and her foot is very sore, but she’s dealing with this like a champ! Seriously, she’s able to laugh at the situation, is working on last-minute details and also resting her foot because she’s smart and practical as well as beautiful and talented. I’m proud of both her and Youngest Son, who took care of her as soon as she got home from the trip. Accidents happen, but we don’t let them ruin the important moments in our lives.
Attitude is everything!
Happy Wednesday! And feel free to share any similar stories you might have about freak accidents, or things that happened before big events in your lives.
P.S. I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!
