~careful driving~

We've had a significant amount of rain in the past couple days.

~Let me's been RAIN, not SNOW, not SLEET, not ICE...just rain.

~Both O and my mom have called me to warn me that the roads were wet.

~Gee...I must be a rocket scientist because I was already aware of the fact that when it rains, the roads get wet.

~They then proceeded to tell me to be very careful driving.

~That could be interpreted as a thoughtful & caring thing to do.

~You know that I don't interpret it that way...why you ask?

~Neither of them have EVER CALLED ME BEFORE to warn me of road conditions when I was not pregnant.

~Clearly, my life is significantly less valuable w/o a baby inside...

~THANKS! Makes me feel *SO* loved...sarcasm intended.

~And before you all go defending them...I know they mean well and all, but when you really think about it - the fact that they've never bothered to call me with this concern before being pregnant really makes me feel of little worth. Sometimes it what a person DOESN'T say that speaks volumes. Also, my driving skills have not changed since being what's the point really?

It's one of those things you need to say to them - "You're really just concerned about the baby, you never cautioned me before." - watch their silly denials, and laugh at the fact that they're silly.

Hopefully you go into labor when it's raining, then you can yell at O the whole way there - "I'm having a baby dude, you're not driving carefully!"

I know, if you're home checking e-mail you need to do a real update, not just a twitter! Did the hospital tell you to come in at 5:45? Is 5:45 when you go to work? Twitter sucks right now!
