Here's a good quote to sum it all up for you...
"i am having a bad day! the worst damn day of my whole damn life! if it is not too much to ask will you all just back the **** off!"
So the whole weekend wasnt that bad but it certainly progressed to something that I could have lived without! Rewind....
Saturday morning I slept in then went for a long-ish run with Kevin. We felt great & enjoyed the weather. I get my stuff ready to go then head out but not before checking my oil. Glad I checked...it needed attention. Jiffy Lube to the rescue.
Head down the road & realize that I forgot to print directions from the hotel to the show venue (I was going the Fitness America Midwest show.) So Kevin agrees to get me where I need to be.
Traffic got pretty heavy in the city with marathon weekend on top of typical Chicago weekend traffic. No biggie...I take a detour (self-directed) & eventually end up at the hotel. At that time it was around 3ish & I'd not had a meal all days...just a few HG fudge pieces.
I shower, Kevin gets me situated & I'm off to find some food. Nothing seems appealing when you are that hungry. A nagging headache tells me to EAT NOW! So I finally settle on Culver's after driving around a while.
Head to the show, visit with friends I've not seen in a while. It was nice. EXCEPT the DJ was a tool & had the music blaring. After about 2 hours, I realized a migraine was setting in. I skip out after they announce the bikini short class winners (congrats Jill on a 2nd place!) She & Carrie worked it & did fantastic. So glad to cheer them on!
Anyway, there are not Walgreen's on every corner in Schaumburg like there are here in NW Indiana. I was about 5 minutes from finding an emergency room. Head was like someone was hitting me with a sledgehammer. Sight was not good & I was starting to feel like I was going to throw up.
I find the Meijer's I passed on the way in & finally got some Excedrin migraine. Downed 2 before I ever walk out of the store. Make my way back to the hotel, cry myself to sleep (which didnt help the head btw.)
Wake to find that my head still hurts, shower & hit the road.
Truck doesnt want to start. Great right? I finally get it going, get gas & get on the road. I had two planned stops (Whole Foods & Trader Joe's.) Successfully make those although feared the truck wasnt going to start. It was iffy so I decide not to make any potty stops (brutal!)
Oh wait, I forgot to tell you about the stop at TJ's. I get my cart & head in the door. Being the klutz that I am, I stub my toe on the cart. Thinking nothing of it until I look down & see blood along with my toenail hanging off. YIKES! Super sweet girl...Jess at the Downer's Grove store does her first aid magic & fixes me up.
Finally get home & call Dad to diagnose the truck. Sounds like the battery so off to Walmart I go. Bad cell in the battery they tell me so now I'm fixed up there too.
I decided I needed to escape the world so I headed to Planet Beach for a 20 min hydromassage, 30 min hydrostation treatment & HP tanning. Trying to nap but it's not working...head is still throbbing.
So yep, not such a great weekend after all. It's unfortunate it ended this way but I think that it'll make me appreciate vacation so much more. We leave just 2 weeks from Tuesday.
Calgon take me away!
