This month has been so crazy that we almost forgot our wedding Anniversary! I'd love to share these exciting things with you but Im a believer of jinks, so I'd rather share the news with you after they've happend!
Our 2nd year wedding anniversary was yesterday and we didnt really plan anything because it landed in the middle of the week and lil Jack is in preK everyday now, so we know we were limited with what we could plan. So I was surprised when Jack asked me to find a babysitter so we can spend the day together!
We ended up going to Laguna Beach, which was a first for him. In the first 5 minutes of our relaxing stroll on the beach I freakin step on something! It was stuck in my foot and instead of picking it off --I freaked out and started dragging my foot on the sand to scrape it off! I was too scared to see what it was! At that moment I realized what a chicken I am!!! Pathetic -I know! Of course I had Jack look at it cuz I couldn't bare the idea of seeing a sea creature stuck too the bottom of my foot! Very Dramatic but my mind runs wild with these ideas! Jack ended up pulling out a long spikey thing! I thought maybe a creature left his picker in my foot! Anyway the pain spread throughout my whole foot and I was limping on the sand for a while! I wanted to cry but I was trying to be a tough guy! The only thing that felt better was to keep moving it in the cold water!
Was it a sting from a jelly fish?
Does Jack have to pee on my foot to stop it from burning!?! (myth here)
Will i have to get it amputated?
Omg or even worse DIE!!!
I thought I felt the pain spreading up into my leg!
Never a dull moment :) Hahah!
After what seemed like a lifetime... the pain started fading! Then Jack tells that he thinks I just stepped on a bee! What the heck! My life flashed before my eyes for a doggone Bee sting!!! I think he's wrong, but All I know is Huntington Beach never has bee problems!
At the end of the day i SURVIVED! And we had a nice dinner by the beach and came home to our little boys and picked up right where we left off! :) happy Anniversary babe! Thanks for putting up with me! I love you and I enjoy growing old with you!
