So much to do, guys, so much to do! It bodes ill that the night before we leave for the beginning of our honeymoon I am only just now getting a chance to sit down to eat dinner at 9:30 p.m. I can tell it is going to be one of those nights after which waking up at 4 a.m. is going to be less than pleasant (but is that ever pleasant, really?).
Things I’ve learned today:
- Get your travel immunizations done WEEKS before you leave the country, not days * ahem *.
- Especially since some of those suckers HURT (my arm feels like its been hit with a baseball bat).
- Get a paper copy of the prescription for the antibiotics that the doc convinced you it would be super great to have with you while traveling because…
- The doctor will never, ever, ever, call in the prescription correctly, and then the office will close for the weekend, and all pharmacies everywhere will refuse to give you the meds without a new prescription.
- The above series of events will make the FiascoHubs lose his trademark cool a little bit, and it will be both stressful and kind of adorable to watch.
Can you tell we’re new at this whole international travel thing? Here’s hoping we don’t catch typhoid fever…
In happier news, there’s a Summer of Love Indie Swap going on in the Indie Untangled group on Ravelry! Sign ups are open until today (the 18th), but if you’re quick I bet you could still get your questionnaire in on time! The swap has a limit in the $40 – $50 range and the only requirement is that you send at least one item from an Indie Untangled artisan (like yours truly)! I’m offering a sale for swap participants on all lip balms, lotion bars, and sample-sized gift sets at Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe. You can find more details about the sale in this post.
And with that, I’m off! I’ll be in Costa Rica for the next 2 weeks and completely failed to prepare posts ahead of time so this is ta-ta for now, my lovely readers. However, if you’d like to keep up with my while I’m gone, I’ll hopefully be posting photos of my adventures over on Instagram. Volcanos, monkeys, and Caribbean sunsets — here we come!
Oh no – these are things you only learned today? I can’t imagine the level of last-minute panic going on! I hope you have an absolutely fantastic and illness-free honeymoon, and I look forward to seeing some lovely vacation photos!
Well, you’ll know better for next time! I hope you have a wonderful trip full of adventures. And remember, the best stories come from things don’t go as planned.
Oh wow, that sounds like quite the series of unfortunate events! Hope you have a great honeymoon despite all of that!
