Andy and I planned to spend this past weekend doing wedding prep, but we found out last week that his Grandma is really sick, so we decided to drop everything and visit Grandma. I had met his grandparents only once before, back in November, so I was still a little nervous, but not as much as before.
We had both had a very long week, so Andy and I decided to sleep in Saturday morning and take our time arriving there. The late start was much needed as our bodies were so worn out from working hard all week. By the time we left Owensboro, it was 11 am and we had a 4 hour drive (plus a time change) ahead of us.
We grabbed two audiobooks for the road and for some weird reason, they both skipped repeatedly. In a last-ditch effort to salvage an 8 hour car ride, I found “48 Days to the Work You Love” by Dan Miller stashed in the passenger door pocket. I’m actually really thankful we listened to this CD, because it sparked a great discussion between Andy and I about what we want our careers to look like. I’ll post about my career goals in the future, but for now, we’ll just say that we’re both excited and are finding ways that we can both achieve our goals.
After visiting for a few hours, Andy and I headed to Grandma and Uncle Louie’s house to spend the night. We spent time talking with Andy’s dad, his dad’s girlfriend, and Uncle Louie before I went to bed. Andy stayed up late talking to his dad, and I’m really glad he got to spend some one-on-one time with him. Before Andy went to bed, he came into my room and we laid on my bed and talked for a while.
On Sunday morning, I woke up with a horrible headache. It was a combination of allergies and not sleeping well the night before. I skipped breakfast because I felt so sick from the migraine. I knew any light and sound would make it worse, so I laid in bed until the Aleve kicked in. After I started feeling better, we packed up our things to head back to town and see Grandma one last time.
