On the eve of what is shaping up to be the biggest single-day event I’ve ever seen at Skydive Perris, Nick and I both had very rough days. His pain was completely out of control today. I hate that! I know his back is broken, and he has been through a lot recently, but why is all the pain concentrating right on his tailbone? That really makes it impossible for him to get comfortable doing anything, even lying down. But I guess one good thing happened for him today. He finally got that pesky, elusive nap he’s been chasing for three days. That’s cause for celebration, especially seeing how exhausted he has been. I’m telling you, the excitement is never ending around here.
And for me? Well I’m not sure anything went my way today. That is so not like me. Usually things run smooth in my world. I rarely encounter burdensome hiccups to my day. Or at least I don’t normally notice them like I did today. But I’m not exaggerating when I say that every little thing I did today was harder than it needed to be, or took several tries to get right, or just completely fell through. And don’t even get me started on the giant headache I’ve been dealing with regarding Nick’s numerous prescriptions. I just hope his neurosurgeon is better at fixing vertebrae than he is at prescribing medication. He consulted his handy dandy drug guidebook, and STILL got his prescription wrong. TWICE! And guess who had to drive around Southern California freeway hell getting these wrongly written prescriptions? I chased down a new prescription today because the one they gave us on Wednesday was incorrect. Then I find out that this one is wrong too. These pain meds are strictly regulated by law, so if anything is not exactly perfect on the prescription, the pharmacy cannot fill it, and they need a new one written. There can be no corrections, and it can’t be called or faxed in. This is not the first time I’ve dealt with this either. What is wrong with these people?!?!
“Feet for Fener” is tomorrow. I really like that name. It’s catchy. I don’t think I could be more excited about this event. It appears as if the auction/raffle has really taken on it’s own life form. There are over 100 items in the silent auction alone. That’s JUST the silent auction. Those items will likely end kind of early in order to save time for the numerous live auction items and raffle prizes. This information is, of course, being relayed to me by the handful of beautiful people working day and night to organize and coordinate such a gigantic event. Day and night. No joke. We have amazing friends! Shazza Kindsvater, Hannah Betts, Linda Witte, Melanie Conatser, Mike & Jen Nootbaar, Candi & J’sun Arguello, Paul Rodriguez & Amanda Burgess!!! THANK YOU!!!
And now I feel bad. I feel bad that I’m not able to thank every single person who is helping us. You know we are humbled with gratitude. But I really wanted to say thanks to a few people who are really going above and beyond to make this party happen. I love you guys! Tomorrow is going to be an absurd amount of fun.
