A Weekend Gone Bad

Have you ever had a day, or a weekend in our case, that just takes a turn for the worse and goes WAY off the beaten path? Unfortunately, that's what happened to us this weekend.

Friday night we decided to go grab some dinner, run by TJ Maxx, then pick up groceries on the way home. After we ate a quick dinner and spent about 20 minutes in TJ Maxx we decided to just head home for the night. Well...that never happened! EVERY interstate, overpass, and pretty much every road that took us home was closed! Apparently the roads were starting to ice over. I do understand this action was only to protect the lives of Birmingham, but some warning would have been nice! We watched the news until it was over (BEFORE we left the house), and there was NO mention of ANY future plans to close the roads...even though they knew it was snowing and below freezing! It was still never mentioned on the radio...EVER that night! UGH!

Needless to say we spent a good chunk of money in a hotel room only a few minutes from our house : ( We had no clothes, toothbrushes, NOTHING! So, I thought well at least I will go to bed fairly early and get a good nights' rest...NOPE! I slept 3 hours...that's IT! And laid awake from 2:30 a.m. until I could wake Mikey about 6:00 to get some breakfast. We got home about 8:00 a.m. when we crashed! We were both totally exhausted! (Although, this was very unfortunate, however I am very thankful we were safe!)

Pictures of us hanging out in the hotel room...





Of course we only had our phones, so no good quality pictures here

I had planned for us to shop around for some things for the house together Saturday, and then have our Valentine's Day dinner Saturday night. Since we didn't really get to bed until 8:00 that morning we of course slept most of the day away : ( We did grab a few groceries and get a casual dinner but nothing like what I had wanted to do : (

And this brings us to today...Aunt Flo decided to come visit a day early and wake me up with excrutiating cramps, ugh! So...We missed church because I couldn't get myself out of bed cause I was hurting so bad : ( That's not an excuse for missing church, but it is my sad reason. Since I didn't sleep well due to being woken up VERY early with pain, and I had to work tonight I stayed in bed until about 1:30 p.m...and wasted the day yet AGAIN : ( However, I DID get two loads of laundry clean, folded and put away...counts for something, right!?

So, like I said...weekend totally went off the deep end : ( But that's okay, life happens. On the other hamd, I am VERY grateful to have a WONDERFUL husband that I was able to spend most of Valentine's Day with : ) He MADE me a super sweet card (he is SO sentimental ; ) and bought us a new lens for our camera : ) I took pictures of my sweet card, but forgot to upload them. I will do that tomorrow...maybe. Anywho, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY MIKEY!!!!!!!!!! I love you with ALL my heart!!!!!!!
