Oh Happy Day...or Monday...

Oh Monday...it's been a trying one...

But it's better now :)

So last night, we were sitting on the sofa and Hubby says, "Are you hot?"  "YES!"  I'm always hot at this point in my pregnancy.  I radiate heat.  When the nurses at the Dr. office touch my belly with the dopplar, they always comment on how hot it is.  We quickly discovered that our A/C was blowing hot air.  Oh goodness.  Our bedroom is the warmest room in the house, so we knew sleeping there was out of the question.  Hubby was a saint and volunteered to take the sofa and set me up in the guest room.  (It was entirely too warm to sleep in a full sized bed together).  He got me some fans, set them up all around the bed, and put on the cool sheets.  It was so sweet and really, really helped me get a good night's sleep.  His night however, so not so great.  Poor guy.

But, we just had the A/C company come out, and we are all fixed!  A mere $200 later (Praise God it wasn't something more serious!) and a new capiciter, and we have air!  If you live in the Houston area and need an A/C guy, email me and I'll be happy to give you their information.  The owner came out and was so kind, and took the time to explain everything to Hubby.

So...Friday night, I went to the grocery store.  Since I'm so big and slow, it's the best time of day for me to go (seriously, there were only like, 3 people there at 9PM).  I decided to get some hamburgers so Hubby could cook out for us on Sunday.  I got home, and Hubby put the groceries away for me.  I asked him, "Did you see the pretty hamburgers I got?  I bought the good ones!"  (Usually I get turkey burgers, but he doesn't really care for them).  He didn't unpack any hamburgers!  We searched my car, and my trunk, and didn't see any hamburgers.  He drove me back to the store so we could see if I had left them at the check out, or more likely, in the buggy.  My buggy was right where I left it - no hamburgers.  I went back in to talk to Morgan, the sweet young lady that checked me out (she is my favorite) and she said that I didn't leave any hamburgers, but to ask her manager if she saw any.  She said she hadn't, but to just go grab another thing of hamburgers.  So, I sheepishly did, all the time wondering where my hamburgers went!  Of course, Hubby gave me a lecture about being more observant and not talking to Morgan so much when I am checking out to make sure that I get all of my groceries, and about checking the cart before I put it away.  Okay, okay.

Fast forward to this morning.  I go out into the garage, and it smells just awful.  I ignore it, and get in my car.  Ewww!  Terrible, rotten, yuck smell.  I go through the back seat, looking for my hamburgers.  Nothing there.  Then, I open the trunk and take out the stroller.  No hamburgers.  I just KNOW they are in there.  Nothing else could be making that smell!  I open the stroller and what falls out?  The bag with the hamburgers in it.  OH.MY.GROSSNESS.  I still am not sure how I didn't get sick.  Somehow on my way home, the bag slid down into the stroller, and when Hubby picked it up looking for the hamburgers they didn't fall out, so he didn't know they were there.  I rode to work with the windows down.  Oh, and of course, my hospital bag and Jaxson's bag where in the trunk.  So, when I got home from work, Hubby had washed everything in our bags.  So sweet.  I think he feels badly because he didn't see them in there on Friday, and for the little lecture I got :)  But it's okay, it's not his fault!  I learned a very important lesson about our stroller and groceries!  So now, my car is in the driveway, windows down, trunk open.  The infamous hamburgers are in the garbage can outside of the garage, which is also currently open and airing out.  I had NO IDEA that hamburger meat left outside smelled like rotten dead things.  Ugh.

I hope your Monday was better than mine!  haha!
