What’s Up Wednesday vol. 3
What I loved about the past week – Having a full weekend to reconnect with Dustin! It was the first weekend we had off together in a couple of months, so we took advantage of it. We had a beautiful Valentine’s Day filled with a couples’ massage, a walk with Rosie, a late lunch, book shopping and a movie! On Sunday, we did a massive spring clean out of our room, our second bedroom, bathroom and closets. We ended up donating 7 trash bags of stuff to the local DI and throwing away another 4 trash bags of junk! Hooray!
What I’m looking forward to – Right now, I am looking forward to finishing out the last few weeks at my job and working on packing up our home. I’m excited for our next chapter in our lives starting in April!
What I’m nervous about – Dustin and I bought a little trailer this last weekend so we can take the motorcycle with us to California. I am already nervous about towing it all the way there! My grandparents were in a terrible accident a few years back while towing their camper and it just makes me nervous!
What I’ve been daydreaming about – Magical places coated in fall colors
What I ate for dinner last night – We had slow cooker BBQ chicken shredded over baked sweet potatoes and honey butter biscuits! YUM!
What I’m craving – Barq’s Rootbeer. What else is new? Three weeks without it! I can’t believe I have made it this far.
What else is new – We sold my car on Monday and I can’t tell you how bittersweet it was. When I got sick, my dad promised me if I beat my cancer he would buy me a car. I wasn’t going to hold him to it because it was a very emotional time. We ended up striking a deal a year later that I would get his 2001 Elantra when he bought a new car. I was heartbroken when it broke down the day before we were supposed to leave for our epic cross country road trip to come to school. Imagine my surprise when my dad showed up in Idaho a month later with keys to a totally different and new car! He is a man of his word and my little Hyundai Sonata has been my safe place for the last five years. It has taken me across the country three times, to California twice and has seen both Oceans and everything in between. It has listened to my confessions and my tears and was the place where Dustin and I decided we were going to get married.
I am so grateful for my dad and for the symbol my car was to me; an every day reminder of the trials I have overcome and the love a father has for his daughter. But, Cazz was getting up there in miles and Dustin and I decided it would make more sense for us to sell him in Idaho then try to get another huge trip out of him. Bittersweet, indeed.
What is up with you this Wednesday?
