~careful driving~

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

~Let me repeat...it'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 PG...so 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!
