My Past 3 Weeks
The past three weeks have been busy and stressful. Jim and I left 3 weeks from last Thursday, I have never been away that long, not even on my trip to Europe. I will never do that again, UNLESS it is to EUROPE. It was mostly spent with Jim's family. I can say luck wasn't looking our way. The first week into our trip Jim hit something while driving my car. We pulled over to make sure everything was fine and to our surprise gasoline was flowing out the bottom. To make the long story short we had punctured our gas tank. After getting our car back we made a quick trip to Biloxi, MS, which is about an hour away from Orange Beach, it's one of Jim's favorite spots since he loves to gamble. While there I got a call from my mom and the doctor had found a cyst on her ovary the size of an orange. We still don't know anything about it, she finds out what her next steps are next week. I pray it's only a cyst, I told her to go ahead and take all her girly parts out and I will go up and help her recover. I don't know what it is about the Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, I swear every time I'm there I get bad news. That's where I was last year when I got the call my grandfather had passed away. I told Jim I will never stay there again, NEVER! While driving back from Biloxi to Jim's family reunion we started hearing a sound underneath the car, by the time we were back in Orange Beach the car was shaking so badly we could only go 30 miles per hour. We took it in and the drive shaft bolts were all gone but one and it was hanging by a thread. We finally got it back and headed for home. We didn't get home until 4:00 in the morning on Saturday and all that know me I'm not a morning person and I need my sleep, and to make matters worse I have been sick, another thing that happens to me every time I go to the Beau Rivage. Now I'm laying in bed with a box of tissues blowing my nose and coughing my lungs up. Can't wait to get back to my usual self. I told Jim this traveling has took a tole on me. Now I have to get to bed so I can get up early for work.
