Just a Little of My Cray Cray

Confession time. I am a closet crier. I like to talk through problems and work them out, but every few weeks/months I need a good cry. This happened Tuesday night when I got home. Things have been a little all over the place for me--- we are 5 months away from our own wedding and finalizing things for that, I am in a May 2nd wedding and helping plan her bridal shower, my knee is busted (thanks, Tigger) and whatever can go wrong is going wrong with our house. I generally take most things in stride and keep my crazy contained, but sometimes I just need a good cry.

I have to go get an MRI on my knee, but to do that I have to go throught the process of getting a referral. Which is stupid. Even my doctor said so Tuesday, as she sent me to get x-rays that in her words won't show anything wrong. Well, why in the world am I paying a co-pay and my 20% of the x-rays if you know they aren't helpful?! Because it is the process. Fine. Just let me wear my old man knee brace and be cool for a few more days.

And our house that we just bought feels like a money pit. I understand we didn't buy a new home, but I didn't realize the heater would go out and a few weeks later the windows in THREE ROOMS would leak the first big snow. Now, we have to do some wall exploration to make sure the insulation and dry-wall isn't going to mold and rot. Do they not understand I need to buy cupcakes and booze for my wedding?! I need my money for that, not a stupid deductible!

So, when I walk in and see all the big tornado fans in the house after spending the afternoon at the doctor in a gown that doesn't tie closed and having a lot of other BS going on, I just started bawling like a baby. Gabriel handled it really well and offered me an ice pack for my gimpy knee and got out my pajamas for me to put on. Such a good guy. After, I was totally fine and went to bed. But, sometimes I just need a good cry. I admit it. I feel like I shouldn’t, but it’s the ugly truth. And I am totally an ugly crier.

I’ll keep you updated on what’s going on with the house and my knee. I gotta be able to wear some hells for my wedding! Oh, and we gotta make sure the house doesn’t fall down on us in our sleep.




  1. Ugh! Hope some good things start happening soon!

  3. Knee pain is no fun. I hope you feel better soon. Congratulations on all the good time ahead.

  4. I am so sorry! (I'm doing my blog reading/catch up tonight, can ya tell?) First of all - I've heard knee injuries are the WORST and really hard recovery wise, so I hope goes smoothly for you and heals quickly! A good cry is so healthy sometimes! I actually love this post (not because things are crazy and stressful) but because our car recently died and it is like WHAT.THE.CRAP. Whyyyy is life so stupid sometimes?! I related it (our car needing major repairs) to your house, and I hate that we don't ever know the future. I guess we have to take the good with the bad, right? Also - I am an ugly crier as well... I kind of think everyone is so you aren't alone. YouTube famous ugly cries for a good laugh! :) xoxo


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
