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 use...it 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!!
