Oh Those Friday Night Blues

I now know tonight what John Conlee was singing about in his song! Being a big fan of country music and especially classic country, songs like this one have a big impact on my life. If you don't know how the song goes here's the chorus...

And the Friday night blues they get in your shoes and they work to get you down
Oh and there ain't a lady that I ever knew who didn't need her a night on the town
But the hills and the bills and a week's worth of deals has got him feeling more than used
Oh, he's kicking his shoes off she's putting hers on she's got the Friday night blues

I'm more focused on the part "there ain't a lady that I ever knew who didn't need her a night on the town." Yes, my Quade did go home and go to bed but he has to be up at 2 AM so I TOTALLY understand that! This is just my last weekend before my ankle replacement next Thursday (November 4th) and I was really hoping for a fun weekend to "send me off!" Not exactly my idea of a fun night being at home with the parents tonight and tomorrow night going to my church's fall festival! It's not like I expected a big party, but just me not have to be the one to ask or go out of my way. I think I'm a pretty good friend, but when my gestures aren't returned I start to feel otherwise. I think I've just been having a pity party way too long and I need to get some sleep. Who knows, maybe while I'm in recovery this time I will get visitors.

Hope y'all have a Happy Halloween!!

"How Would You Rate Your Pain On the Pain Scale?"

So I've had this question asked a lot at therapy and I always pick a number that is better than it actually is because I HATE people knowing that I am in pain. It's been a tough couple of days mainly because I am having pain drug withdrawals as I come off of them more and more!! It's good because I need to get off of them as bad as they are for me to be on as long as I have. My moods have been so up and down and I know my family is ready for me to be completely off of them!! I feel bad for them, but sadly I've been feeling more sorry for myself. :( As selfish as I know that sounds it is the's just that nobody actually knows.

On a better note...we are almost halfway paid for our Carnival cruise honeymoon!!! We were going to downgrade from the huge suite that is a lot more than we should be paying for, but Quade went on ahead and booked the one that exceeded our desires. Besides, you only have one least that's the way I am going to keep it! We will be going to Montego Bay, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico; and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands on the Carnival Conquest!! We leave the day after the wedding and we only have to drive to Galveston that morning which is nothing for us. :D I actually went on this same exact cruise with my family 2 years ago and it was awesome!! I'm even more excited not just because it is my honeymoon ;) but because it will be Quade's first cruise! Plus, we will finally get to do the Mayan ruin excursion that I have been dying to go on every one of the 3 times I have been on a cruise to Cozumel with my family.

Have you been on a cruise before and if so where did you go?
