Our Weekend Away
I had visions of sharing stories of how wonderful our weekend away was.
But, would I do it again? No, not anytime soon.
Baby MPB did not handle the drive there well. Our drive was 4 hours longer then it would have been before Baby MPB. Listening to a baby scream inconsolably is never fun.
Baby MPB did not sleep well at all. He’s pushing through another tooth which now means we are in for a string of bad nights. Which means no-one in the house slept well, I felt so bad for our friends. Again, listening to a baby scream inconsolably is never fun.
Baby MPB did not handle the drive home well. See above for the explanation.
Then today, while driving with potential client, my car got a flat tire. On a 6 lane highway. Ya, not fun. And while getting my flat tire repaired it was determined that it was time for all new tires (we knew this was coming but thought we had another month or two). Then, upon inspection, my rear breaks were at 2% – clearly not safe. So, $1300 later, my car should be in working order tomorrow.
Then, I realized I managed to forget my books at our meeting so I had to find a way to get back to get them. Not an easy feat without my own car.
And then, my computer died. As in, never going to work again, not worth the money to fix. And being self-employed we have no choice but to fix the problem immediately or lose income – another $800 bill. Needless to say the rest of my day/evening was spent trying to get the new computer up and running.
So, I fully acknowledge that the non-driving days of our weekend away were great. But, right now I seem more focused on the fact that the nights were miserable, the driving days were horrible and my return to work today went rather poorly.
I’m not saying we’ll never go away again. In fact, I suspect we’ll do it sooner then either of us expect because the good parts of this weekend will be what we remember in 6 months time.
But all this said, if there is a god out there, please, make this teething pain stop. I need sleep again. And Baby MPB could probably do without the pain!
