The Meaning of a lady bug


So as I mentioned hubs and I went away to Niagara Falls for his birthday. Well we went for dinner and had a few drinks and just like back when we were dating, we inevitably got into a fight. I had tears streaming down my face and I felt like the entire weekend was ruined. It wasn’t pretty.

Luckily we managed to patch things up and in the end it was probably good that we cleared up a few things.  As I had booked a super duper fancy suite at the Marriott we decided to give the Jacuzzi a whirl. I was trying to figure out exactly how to work it when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. “Geez,” I thought, “five star hotel and there’s a bug in our room?!?”
I looked closer and there it was, a beautiful little lady bug. I assumed it was probably dead since it made no sense for a lady bug to be up eight stories in the dead of winter in the bathroom. But when I touched it, it was alive!  I instantly felt bad because I didn’t want to kill her, but setting her free from this height in -10 degree weather couldn’t be good either.
We ended up moving her to a safer spot. After our jacuzzi time I looked and she was gone. I don’t know where she went, but I wish her the best.
Now here’s the thing. What does it mean? Of course you could argue it means nothing, but considering the remote chances of finding a live ladybug in the bathroom of a five star hotel, on the eighth floor in January seem pretty crazy to me. So, if it is a sign, then what did it mean? Now I understand why sometimes when people attempt to interpret the unknown things can get so off track.
I’d like to think it’s a good sign as I have always viewed ladybugs as lucky, but I suppose only time will tell?
It was a fun night and the falls were beautiful. I am so grateful to my wonderful sister in law and her boyfriend for babysitting (and they did a great job btw).
Tomorrow is day 5. Halfway there…ish.
Oh, also an update on the last post. I ordered this awesome magnetic responsibility chart thing by Melissa and Doug and I can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ll definitely write about it when it comes.
Best wishes to all.
