Are you sure?

setting the stage: Saturday afternoon, leaving town and have been driving about 30 minutes. We were going to get paint for E's room and we had been messing around all day and it was already 3pm.

Marie: Crap!!!

Eric: What?

Marie: We forgot to get the clomid prescription and I need to start it in the morning and the pharmacy will be closed. I knew we were going to do this.

Eric: "Well I guess I will turn around at the next exit and we will go get it".

Marie: Well it is already too late we are not going to be able to get the room painted. doing the period math in my head " What is your work schedule next week because we have to do it like 5 days to make sure we do not miss it."

Eric: I have to be at work at 7 the next two weeks.

Marie: Well you wanna just skip this month because I don't get home till about 6:30 so that will not work.

Eric: uhh its up to you honey.

Marie: Yea let's not waste it let's just wait.

Eric: Are you sure? I need to exit right up here and I don't want you to get all mad and say I don't care if I pass it.

Marie: I won't get mad.

Eric: Are you sure? (slowing down to exit)

Marie: Yea (lip starts to tremble)

Eric: We can turn around (he starts veering towards exit and slowing down more)

Marie: No really don't turn around. Your parents are coming and you are working and we have things going on. We can wait it is no big deal.

Eric: OK (speeds up and passes exit)

Marie: ....SIGHS....(turns and faces the window.)

Eric: (under his breath) Dammit I knew it. SIGH

Awwwwwe, I'm so sad. I can picture it so clearly. Why do we do this as women? *HUGS*

It's both sad and funny. It's sunny, I guess...
So did you ever get the SA stuff figured out? I still can't believe they are trying to charge $600.

Oh I'm sorry. I know that feeling that if life would just stop for a freaking second so I could do something really important, that would just be awesome.

HUGS. And thanks for visiting my blog.
