How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

I went to the gym tonight for the first time in, I don't know, forever. It was just one of those things that I did not got for a few days because I was super tired. Then it was hard with Vin being in school 2 nights a week so the only time I could really go meant that we never saw each other. Then I had toe nail surgery. Then I sprained my ankle.
