Roadtrip Aftermath

Now that the Blogging A to Z in April Challenge is over, I figured I would give you a follow-up post to our roadtrip to Iowa for my graduation.
  1. Rather than staying over in a hotel on Sunday night, we decided to drive on home. We got home around 2:45 a.m. Monday morning.
  2. Our puppy (whom my mom had been coming over to feed and tend to) was insanely happy to see us. She went a little mad when we got here. It was funny.
  3. I had to go back to work today. It was not my favourite part of coming home.
  4. I have developed an unhealthy addiction to Skittles while we've been gone. I had to have Skittles fairly constantly while we were driving. It's insane and not at all healthy.
  5. Our trip home was not a complete rush to get home. We did take a little time to have fun. In fact, we stopped in Metropolis, IL to see their giant Superman statue. The Hubs took a photo of me posing with the giant Superman.

  6. My ankle has decided to swell up again. It's hideously painful at the moment. I've resorted to the heavy painkillers and it still isn't reducing the pain.
  7. My mom is having surgery to repair a hiatal hernia on Thursday. I'm taking the day off from work to go with her. Please say a prayer or send up a thought for her that day. Thanks!

I think that's all for now! I'll give you another update later!

That's a cute picture :)

I'm sorry to hear about your ankle. I occasionally have ankle problems as well so I feel your pain.

I hope your mom's surgery went well :)
