So much for a mental health day.
Every trip has three snags. I think right now, we're up to five and I haven't even packed yet.
I thought it so annoying that I had some camera issues and don't even get me started on what Dell has done to me this week and when I hurt my foot last week and had to get the x-ray, I thought that was it. That was plenty. I'd had enough shit to deal with to make me stressed out up until that point and was glad when I made it through last week with my foot not being broken. Then today happened.
My husband was in the back yard loading a bunch of shit into the van so we could take it to the dump. I had gotten Owen dressed already and was back in River's room getting her dressed. Her room is all the way in the back of the house so that explains why I didn't hear the screams.
I had a large bag of clothes sitting on my front porch waiting for someone from FreeCycle to come and pick them up so when I heard a man say, "Hi, is your mom home? Could you go get her?" I freaked out and ran into the kitchen. I didn't see a stranger leaning into my house but my neighbor who had apparently heard Chris scream. Turns out Chris stepped into a hole in the backyard that I've been complaining about since we've been here. It's a fucking death trap. He said he heard a pop so I assumed it was broken. Yay, just in time for our trip!
Anyhoo, I loaded the family up and we drove him to the hospital. Turns out it is a bad sprain with a possible chip in his bone. The "pop" he heard was the ligament pulling away from the bone and taking some bone with it. He's in a lot of pain and they gave him Percocet which he's yet to take.
It's going to be a long week. There is a chance that I may have to make this Twilight trip without him which I really don't want to do but if he's on crutches, all that walking is out. At least his parents are set to come so me going isn't an issue. I can't reschedule because it's a one time thing or I probably would.
We're taking this week slow and I'm pretty much gonna be his bitch. He needs to keep it up and ice it every two hours. So, I now have three children instead of two. It will be a miracle if all the shit that went wrong this week is righted before Friday. God help Dell if they fuck me over again.
I guess my mental health day will have to wait.
