As always, I had good intentions of writing a really lengthy blog update today, but it's not happening, courtesy of whatever illness made me lose my voice last Friday and is still kicking my @$$. I woke up and came to work completely convinced it was Thursday, but it's definitely not, if that tells you anything about my current mental state.
I DO have some exciting news in the form of being chosen to receive an award for some of my writing at the annual USDF Convention in a couple months (which most of you already know from my FB page), and I also have an exciting tack review in the pipeline for a new company, so that should be fun!
In the meantime, you can vicariously experience my pain as DH went to buy a hot tub yesterday (the one that we agreed on after weeks of deliberation), and instead came home with a significantly larger one -- apparently I'm not the only one in our household with retail impulse control issues....haha. Of course, that meant the spot we had prepared needed additional work ($$$), and there was a wiring SNAFU (that I fixed by reading the instructions). After the initial wiring issue, the internal hot tub set up programs were running a little haywire, so DH is calling the company today to see if they can walk him through it, but if not, guess we'll be getting a visit from an electrician or a repairman....or both! DH is very disappointed, but hopefully this is just a small bump in the road!
