We’re going to London! This will be a celebration of our 10 year wedding anniversary which is in October (2013) but we’re not going until February 2014 so I have a whole year to plan! I’m so excited. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to London (and Europe) and when I started talking about it late last year it was only wishful thinking. But unless something hugely unforeseen occurs, I’ll be in the Motherland a year from now! And since my brother-in-law is a Delta pilot, he’ll be flying us over first class all the way baby! One little problem….I’m terrified of flying! I have to take a prescribed medication to even get on the plane but my sister has assured me that the time will pass rather quickly with Champagne and a long nap!
She brought these books to me to check out…looks like a lot of reading will be in my future!
So many places I want to see over there. Now I’m going to ask anyone who has been to England for your input on places to go, things to see, where to eat, etc. We will have a little itinerary but it never hurts to have lots of good ideas.
Now for a little situation I’m having which is waaay off the subject of my trip. We went on vacation last week to Vicksburg, MS. We took this same trip a few years ago and loved it and just wanted to get away for a few days. I’d been having trouble with my left knee and last Tuesday night while coming out of a restaurant, my left knee “popped” and I couldn’t walk. I had to be put in a wheelchair to be taken to our car! Scary, I tell ya. But strangely enough, earlier that day I was on Facebook and my friend Kat had posted she had just been diagnosed with a Bakers Cyst. Just out of curiosity I looked it up and it sounded exactly like what I was experiencing. So when the knee “popped” on me I checked into it further when we got back to our room and sure enough, I was experiencing most of the symptoms it talked about. So we had to cut our vacation short and come home. I went to the doctor on Friday and had an ultrasound which confirmed the cyst. Now I’m going to an orthopedic on Monday for further treatment. I’m hoping they will drain it or whatever because it’s pretty uncomfortable to walk on for any length of time and since I’m my mom’s caregiver, I still have to get out and take care of her needs. Have any of you experienced a Bakers Cyst? I’d love to know how things turned out for you if you did.
I’ll be posting a few pictures from our trip later this week. We visited the hauntingly beautiful Windsor Ruins in Port Gibson, a town that Gen. Grant said was “too beautiful to burn”.
And since we were soooo close (wink) we also drove over to Monroe, LA to visit the Duck Commander….any Duck Dynasty fans out there? I can’t believe I’m admitting it here for the world to see, but we LOVE it!
Happy, happy, happy!
