Batteries In The Trash

Last week during a mad rush to get my house clean for Christmas, I managed to drop our cordless phone in a bucket of mop water. For Christmas, one of the presents my husband bought for me was a new cordless phone with two handsets. He knew I hated being stuck only having the corded phone to was a very nice gift.

Well yesterday I finally got around to getting it all plugged in to charge. After setting it up I moved on to gathering up all of the Christmas trash since today is our trash day. I added the phone box to that huge pile.

This morning, I went to get the cordless phone off the charger to see how it worked, and to my surprise, nothing happened when I pushed the buttons. I was totally confused until I realized I hadn't put the batteries into either of the handsets. The trash was gone, along with the batteries.

Although, I'm not even 5 weeks along yet in this pregnancy, my hormones are running at full force and I started freaking out about telling Will what I had done. I got all shaky and sick to my stomach. I just wanted to get it out of the way as quickly as possible. So I called him and coudln't get ahold of him. That made things worse, I had time to dwell on how mad I imagined he'd be.

He finally called me back after getting my message and when I told him what had happened I burst into tears. Full out sobbing is what I was doing. It was embarrassing, but I couldn't stop. I just kept telling him how mad he should be at me and how awful and worthless I was. (yeah, I know, it was only batteries...but that's not how I felt at the time!)

He of course said he'd just go buy some new ones and told me to calm down. I know he had to have been kicking himself for agreeing to get me pregnant and putting himself through this a 3rd time...but it's too late now!!

Emotional, evil, psychotic Jen has returned. Waaaaaahhhhhhhaha!!!!!!!!!

I will relate my cordless phone story to you so that you can know that you aren't alone **oh yeah I wasn't even pregnant so I can't blame it on pregnancy brain.

We were out side in the summer and I had been talking on the phone and when finished I put the cordless phone on the hood of hubby's truck. Not sure why I did it but it must have been the closest thing within my reach.
Okay so fast forward to hubby and Little Man heading down the road to pick up the pizza we ordered. Yep you guessed it what was still on his hood...our phone that was until he rounded the corner and it fell off and crashed to the road in a million pieces.

Needless to say we went out that night and purchased a new cordless phone cause I like you can't be without one.
