No good deed goes unpunished

From September 19

So, today I surprised Grandmother with a trip to Mayfield. She has been pitching a major fit to come for the 20 days she been back in Nashville. You can’t tell her these things ahead of time because she will wear, you, out about it. Worse than a 3 year old ever thought about being….. So literally, I told her to get in the car we were headed to Mayfield.
We get to town around 11:30. I dropped the kids off at my stepdads house and took grandmother to the graveyard to put flowers on mom’s grave and my grandfather’s grave. The premade arrangements didn’t fit the vase, so I got the bright idea to cut the styrofoam down with the butcher knife I had in my truck….. As a result, I’ve been sitting in the ER for 3 hours. I left the kids with my stepdad, and grandmother with her sisters. So much for the fun day I had planned in my head. But, I’ve come to find out that my plans don’t generally work out.
I’ve finally seen a NP and now just waiting on my tetanus shot and sutures. But let me just tell you, this place is a freaking train wreck! I don’t like to be judgemental, but holy cow… This hospital is a mess and the people waiting in the ER are an even bigger mess.
The lady at the desk said, m’am, you look uncomfortable do you feel okay? So many things I wanted to say. But, I just stuck with the last time I was here my mom died….
And the funniest part of all is that grandmother already wants to leave her sisters to go see the kids. While I’m bleeding all over the place, I’m having to talk her off the ledge.
Moral of the story, I should have just stayed home.
