Our “Let’s blow this Turkey Joint and get out of town”/Post-deployment/Pre-deployment/whatever-the-heck-it-is leave trip ended last week. The Yank and I spent 8 days exploring California’s Coastal Highway in our (mostly) open-air jeep and Northern CA’s quaint Russian River Valley/Santa Rosa. It was brilliant – one of the best trips ever, and we both enjoyed ourselves and our together time tremendously. It’s been a long long LONG time since we had a vacation together – this one was even more special, because we have a lot to be thankful for.
I was meaning to post a few pictures, but Tuesday of this last week – at 11:45 pm – this was my unfortunate view:
An intolerance to a new medication left me sick for hours. After the third round of dry heaves, I had had enough. I couldn’t stop throwing up, even though it was CLEAR that nothing remained in my system. So N took me to the ER. The shot of Benadryl +anti-nausea medication helped, but it took a bit longer to recover.
God, I hate lupus – and its fucking complications.
Long story short, I’ve been meaning to write OR post some pictures, but up until this moment, just haven’t felt like doing so. But this morning – before heading out to watch the Packers – I did. Nothing special or earth shattering…just a few pictures from a great trip. Enjoy!
Usually I try to limit my pictures, sometimes photos are more interesting when there are fewer of them. But all of the pictures above mean something to me – and aren’t exactly run-of-the-mill. Anyway…. Keeping my fingers crossed that my new medication works the way we want it to, AND that the Packers have a great game. And above all – hug your family and tell your friends you love them….It’s all about that icing.
