Well, we're home. We had such a wonderful vacation out in Minnesota. As scary as snow can be to drive in, I sure loved playing in it. I also loved looking out the windows and seeing the ideal white Christmas.
We had so much fun playing games (kicked Nolan's trash in seven's! Mwahaha!), visiting extended family, getting together with friends, cooking, reading, sitting by the fire place, playing with our adorable niece, Kherington. It was sooooooo nice. Trav and I were discussing how quickly the time went. It honestly felt like we blinked a couple of times and BAM! It was time for us to leave. :(
Since being home we haven't done a lot. Our flights were delayed, our luggage was lost, and on our way home from the airport, the car in front of us fishtailed, spun in a few circles, and hit the barriers on one side of the bridge we were on - then spun and hit the barriers on the other side of the bridge. It was terrifying to witness. I was pretty shook up. For a few seconds we thought we were going to hit them. After we realized we were safe, we pulled over to check on the people in the SUV. I couldn't tell how bad the injuries were or how many people were in the car because the windows were tinted. Thank goodness they were okay. In shock, but okay. Needless to say, we didn't get home until 10:30 or 11:00 on New Years Eve.
We also didn't do a whole lot of celebrating because I started vomiting shortly after the clock struck 12:00 midnight. I celebrated New Years with my head in the toilet. Not joking either. I looked at the clock, 12:03, and wished Trav a happy New Years as I made a mad dash for the bathroom. It's was awful. I wasn't able to keep anything down. And I was so dizzy I was even DREAMING things were spinning. I woke up dizzy. It was bizarre.
I'm starting to feel better now, but I'm terrified to eat anything solid. That'll hurt coming back up. Gross, I know. But I have to think about these things. :s
Trav goes back to school tomorrow and I start my next semester this Wednesday, January 5th. Neither of us are quite ready to get back in the groove of things, but what can we do about it? Not much. So, we're trying to be strong. We're keeping our chins up. :)
Anyway, we hope you had a better New Years celebration than we did! We hope this year brings a lot of goodness and growth.
