I strictly told him I was not coming when he told me about it! I just KNEW I wouldn't have fun, & wanted to stay in the comfort of my own home. He begged me, gave me puppy dog eyes & said how much he wanted me to be there with him. (I think he just knew he would feel guilty having me home alone on my birthday.) So finally I gave in thinking hey it might not be THAT bad. Well it was THAT bad. All dumb things but I just hated every minute & everything went wrong that could. I will not get into details but it lead to tears, silence treatments, & angry words to Jer. (sorry buddy but you asked for it.) Anyways point of the story is I should have followed my instincts & stayed home. I often do this where I have a feeling about something, but ignore it in hopes for a different outcome. Rest assured I am determined to stop doing this & just go with my gut because there is almost always a reason for that feeling. So I am only documenting this to remind myself not to do it anymore!
Diesel was as happy as can be though.
I leave to the states tomorrow to fly out Saturday morning & could not be more excited to see my family & meet little Hawkes!!
