A Series of Unfortunate Events

Oh hi!

Remember me!

So back in October I decided to do the 31 in 31 and I did alright until I failed and I blamed it on my kidney stone. (an excuse, but a valid one, I think)

Then came November when I signed up for NaBloPoMo. For those first nine days I was going strong.

I made it to Hawaii! I was excited to show you all pictures so you could live vicariously through me.

I was going to make it through the month of posting more and then this happened....

That would be me at Hana Health in Hawaii getting a splint on my ankle because it was broken.

You want to know what will put a damper on your tropical vacation faster than anything else?

A broken limb. and crutches.

Luckily I have Garrett! He rented me a wheel chair and proceeded to spend the rest of the week pushing me wherever I wanted to go!

Garrett is wonderful and was mostly patient with me (and has continued to be since we got home) but let's be honest it put a HUGE damper on my ability to shop in Hawaii. He just wasn't willing to do that. The man has his limits!

I did spend lots of time at the edge of the sand looking at the water. And if you have to be injured I guess paradise is an awesome place to do it!

There was still plenty of time to enjoy drinks by the water, just not with my toes in the sand. (and who needs pain pills when you have pink drinks by the beach??)

When I got home I got a boot instead of a cast. (which was overall disappointing at first but turned out to be a blessing because you can take that thing off when you're foot needs some air!)

And had the flu and strep throat at the same time! (I got those as a little gift in Hawaii too, I guess the ankle wasn't enough of a souvenir for the islands)

Then as a special bonus gift I got to have surgery to remove the kidney stone that was hell bent on staying inside of my body. 

Oh did I mention I got this scooter to ride around on until I was able to put weight on my leg, it's not nearly as exciting as it sounds, but it's like a million times better than crutches so I won't complain!

My 9 year old cousin rode around on it at Thanksgiving and said "You're so lucky!" I wasn't really feeling very lucky, or at least not the good kind of lucky....

I hope I got all the sickness, accidents, and medical misfortunes out of my system for awhile because I am really just ready to be health and whole!

So other than going to see doctors at least twice a week I spent the remainder of November trying to not fall too far behind at school.

I also learned a very valuable lesson, do NOT commit to blog every day! Kidney stones, broken bones you win universe! I'm not meant to be an every day blogger!

In other just as important news...

Last night I took my last final EVER!

and now comes the fun part of applying, studying, and PASSING the CPA exam!

I'll be back soon with real camera pictures of Hawaii (soon could mean January, no commitments from me!!)
