So this week I forgot about my sales meeting at 8:00am on Tuesday. It hit me when I was driving up the interstate and the clock said 8:16...my heart dropped...literally. It was a simple mistake - but not one that I had made before.
Twice I have tried to plan showers on, 1 - Easter and 2 - Father's day. It's like my brain just isn't tracking!
Last night was really the "icing" on the cake. Aaron and I attended the Hoover High Graduation in downtown Bham. We parked a block or 2 away from the arena, went inside - watched 1.5 million little graduates recieve their diplomas (one even did a kart-wheel across the stage.) It was a happy and fun evening. UNTIL we left the arena and headed towards our car - which neither of us could find. OK - 5 minutes of searching was not too bad - 8 minutes was bad - and 10 minutes I was ready to choke someone! Not to mention that I was in non-comfy work shoes, had a major cramp in my side and it was dark as can be. We took a "short-cut" through a little mulched area and that's when it went WAY south...I stepped in a hole, twisted my ankle, and slowly went crashing to the ground. I laugh as I type this because what happened next must have been quite a spectacle! I proceeded to take off both my shoes and throw them as far into the air as I could while screaming about JUST HOW MAD I WAS! And there was no way in (well you know) that I was going to put those shoes back on. I would just suffer through the tender foot walking through the streets syndrome.
So now - 15 minutes into the - 2 grown adults that can't find their own car that they parked themselves incident - it dawns on us that we exited the building and turned left instead of turning right...NICE - so we were on the COMPLETE opposite side of where the car was! So finally - we found the car - headed home - with one ill - angry - fussy - pouty - not nice pregnant girl in the car - and one sweet - never loses his temper - doesn't have an angry bone in his body - everything's gonna be fine - can I get anything for you husband. WHEW! I just kept pointing out - "Well - thank God we don't have a child with us - how will we ever have a child if we can't even find our own car" I was a monster!
So - as I try to keep track of my sanity and not fly off the handle too much...I will remind myself - it's gonna be ok...I'm Pregnant!
