Spring Break – The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

That title was originally, “the worst spring break of my life” but I decided that that was a little much. I did do some fun things during spring break even with all the bad and ugly that happened.

So, I thought I would re-cap my “lovely” week for y’all.


The Good –

*We hired a maid and they came and did a huge scrub down of the house on Tuesday morning

*My mom, sister and Grannie came in town Tuesday morning and stayed till Wednesday evening

*We hunted for Wedding dresses all day Tuesday and Wednesday


*I said Yes to a dress

*We picked a new bridesmaid dress and all 3 girls agreed and ordered

*We went to the rodeo Tuesday night and saw Miranda Lambert


*I got to meet some girlfriends for lunch on Thursday


*I played Bingo Thursday night with friends


The bad –

*John got his wisdom teeth out Wednesday

*I was sick ALL week (and still am). Strep throat turned bronchitis is NOT fun

*I didn’t get anything done that I needed to (like get my oil changed)

*Cotton had to go to the vet Friday for an ulcer on his lip

*I tried to go to the Redi-clinic at HEB on Friday night because I was still feeling like crap and the NP was a bitch and wouldn’t see me



The ugly –

My sweet boy Cotton went to Heaven on Sunday morning


I'm not ready to write about what happened yet. It'll be a long post with lots and lots of tears from me. I'm devastated. John is devastated. It was so unexpected. It still doesn't seem real. I know I need to write the post for my own memories so hopefully soon I can sit down and make it through it.

But alot of you have already texted, emailed and tweeted me and I just want to say thank you SO much. It's really amazing the impact your internet (turned in real life) friends can have.

So, even though I did have some fabulous things happen during Spring Break (LIKE FINDING MY WEDDING DRESS!!!!) it's just hard to look past the last morning... I know it'll all be ok in the end, but it's hard to see it that way right now.

Oh my goodness, Savanah, I am so sorry to hear about your precious kitty! I lost my childhood cat back in December and I'm still not over that yet. Animals, and especially cats, have such a special place in your heart and are family! I'll be thinking about you!

Cori H. said...

First of all, congrats on finding your dress! That is so exciting! I'm glad you were able to have some fun moments during your spring break. Hope you're starting to feel better though. Being sick is no fun! Again, I am so sorry about Cotton. As you know, we unexpectedly lost a member of our family this week also. It's so hard! Writing about it on my blog was definitely sad, but I tried to make it a positive by remembering the good times we had with him. It will be nice to look back on the good times later on. Take your time with it. I know it's difficult and it hurts! I'm hear if ya need me, girlie!

I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty-baby. Please take solace in the fact that he knew he was greatly loved by you and he enjoyed his time with you.
My thoughts are with you.
