well it has been quite the morning.
these last few weeks have been a little rough.
ryan has been stressed about work, elliot has been cutting to be what seems like 200 teeth and i have had to deal with a lot of silly little things.
we've run into pretty much every problem possible when planning our trip to nashville for next week - almost having to cancel it once and choosing to cancel it like 5 other times.
just seems like nothing is lining up right, or how we'd hoped.
we aren't able to spend as much time there as we had hoped because of work.
my old employers were nice enough to open their home for us to stay in when we realized we wouldn't be able to afford a hotel for a week.
because of that, we aren't able to have a babysitter for elliot (hello, how rude for us to do that to the people we're staying with)...
and of course, really looking forward to things - things we need - and them falling through.
and really at this point, i just have to chalk it up to satan.
we have been so homesick -
for our city and especially our friends.
and plans have fallen through, feelings have been hurt.
this trip has been something we have looked forward to since we moved...
"we just have to make it to may when we go to nashville again"
something that has kept us going when things have been really rough and really lonely out here.
i spent the entirety of elliot's first nap crying in my room.
just so broken down over this process and of course disappointed in that this trip is finally here and yet the light at the end of the tunnel has vanished.
so after i gave myself my moment,
the only real thing to do, was to pack elliot up and pick ryan up and go to in n out for lunch...
if you all could send up a little prayer for next week and my family, we could really use a break over here.
