Happy August! Also, happy end of Mercury Retrograde. Last week was the end of this and boy did this one affect me more than ever. There’s nothing I can do but laugh at some of the mishaps that occurred, so read on and see why I am so happy that Mercury Retrograde is Over!
I should start by saying that I am by no means an astrological guru or even know that much about it. But I do know that this past month was ridiculous and wild all at the same time. Maybe I just noticed these things more? I am not sure, but I am open to everything.
So, below is a list of everything that occurred during Retrograde
1 My Boss Got A New Job
I love my boss, he was the coolest and funniest man to work for and really made coming to work a joy. On the very first day of Retrograde he gave his notice, I was so sad and worried about almost everything. How would the work get done? Who would take his place? Where would I fit in? What would I be doing now? Since then things are still up in the air but I know he is happy and in a great new company doing great things – awesome!
2. The Pup Scratched My Boyfriends Eye
As you know that we got a new puppy in January. He’s great and has all the energy in the world. One night, he and my boyfriend were playing, his paw hit my boyfriends eye and some dirt from the paw must have gotten in to his eye. My boyfriend rubbed the eye and was complaining about how uncomfortable it was, and how it hurt. I Couldn’t see anything in the eye so I told him he was fine and he just needs to leave it alone.
At 1:30 in the morning my boyfriend wakes up saying how much his eye hurt. I said “what should we do? go to the ER?” and he said yea. So, we went. The ER Doctors said it was nothing and that we should just use a compress on it.
Oh, by the way, it was my boyfriends birthday. Fun way to ring in his birthday, huh?
So, at around 3:30 we went home. His eye still hurt and he was still in pain and discomfort. I got him a patch so that he would be less likely to itch it and hurt himself further.
It didn’t help. Nothing helped. So he made an appointment with his eye doctor that day. The doctor said that he scratched his eye super deep and if it was even a little deeper he would have lost vision in his eye. WHAT!? They were able to patch it and he had to wear this hard contact lens that was full of medicine for 3 days. When he went back for them to take it out they said the eye healed, we are so so thankful for modern medicine!
3. Getting Sick
One day I woke up and I had a tickle in my throat. I didn’t really think anything of it but I also felt like my body was aching. As the day progressed I started to feel worse and worse. I took an Advil, it helped for a little but not really so I spent the morning at home before going tot he Nordstrom Sales (priorities). I guess that was too much for me because I came home and just passed out.
The next day my throat was worse and I felt worse. I had a slight fever and couldn’t eat anything. Ugh. I took Advil to reduce my fever but nothing really helped anything else. I eventually went to the walk-in to make sure it wasn’t strep throat. It wasn’t, it was just viral which was worse because you just have to wait it out. Ugh. I am finally feeling better, thankfully!
4. Nail in my Tire
Enough said. I wouldn’t even put this on the list but when I went to Firestone they said they couldn’t fix it and I had to buy the whole new tire. Ugh.
5. Hurricane Max
Remember when I said we got a puppy? Well, we adopted him and he was born during the hurricanes in North/South Carolina. Needless to say, he is terrified of rain and storms. Last week we had a terrible rain storm with hail and winds. We had so many trees down and wires down it was nuts. Max must have freaked out because he TORE OUR COUCH TO SHREDS. Like, into pieces!
He was scared so I get it but…I was still so so upset.
Retrograde is over
Things are looking up though ! I am finding my new normal at work.
My boyfriends eye is back to normal.
I am finally feeling better.
My tire is fixed and we are able to replace the upholstery on the couch!
