Seriously no more vacations for me.

So for the last 4 years every time I take vacation for work, something bad happens.  The first vacation was when we first moved into our house.  We were having the electric updated, and somehow the electrician cracked the water main coming into our house.  Luckily it was before the meter, but the entire week was spent with plumbers and electricians in the house.  The next vacation, we had a death in the family.  The following vacation, another death, the one after that my 32 year old cousin had a stroke, the following vacation another death, this time in DH's fam.  Last vacation, was actually good, so I was like OMG, the curse is broken!  YAY!


Then today happened.  I had twisted my knee late last week, no big deal, after a couple days it was fine, but then today, I was walking upstairs and twisted around for something, and I felt this POP in my knee.  I can't straighten it out all the way, and it is pretty swollen.  I'm icing it for 10-20 min. every 4 hours but I don't want to take anything because I should be O-ing very soon.   So seriously, come on!!!  I was so close to two good ones in a row!  Why do I have lousy vacations?

Jessica,


I hear you!


For years we didn't take a real vacation because we used all our time to visit my husband's sister who was very ill.
