It’s been a rough week for the Koslicki household. Between Nigel being sick and having to not go on a celebratory trip we’ve been planning forever, which has subsequently revealed to us who we will no longer be inviting on future trips, it’s been an emotional week. Thank you to everyone for their sweet words and kind thoughts! By Friday, Nigel seemed normal and I was having serious second doubts about whether or not we were making the right decision to go on the trip or not, and Dan and I went back and forth about it all weekend. Even though we had some of our best friends (who had had no interest in partying for a week in CO with our other younger friends), over to break in my consolation present to myself of a new patio dining set, and we went to a super fun BBQ with some other friends who we realized we don’t see enough, by Sunday, Nigel seemed to be doing great and we seriously considered just packing the car and taking off. Then our consciences would get to us and we knew it was an irrational and irresponsible choice to make. Then my studly husband said let’s go somewhere else then, closer. Where was someplace we hadn’t been together as a family yet that would be fun and exciting for us as a family trip that was close enough that if Nigel’s health suddenly took a turn for the worse, we could be home in a couple of hours instead of 20. Seattle. Of course. Then we realized the Red Sox were in town this week and I swooned.
