Friday Evening in the Superhero Household

Dh (freaking out about taking the GRE Saturday morning): Our date tomorrow might not happen.

Anth looks up with panic in her eyes as she has been looking forward to said date all freaking week.

Dh: If I don't get at least 1000 on the GRE, I'm going to Mexico. I will be in no state to be around other people.

Anth: Well, that's true. I'll just go on the date by myself then. (No sense in wasting a perfectly good babysitter.)

Five minutes later...

Dh: Crap! I don't have a valid passport. (Pause.) I guess I'll fly to El Paso and smuggle myself into Mexico.

Anth: Just make sure you call me before you go.

Dh: No, then you'll try to follow me.

Anth: No I won't. I don't want to be around you if you do badly on the test. You'll be psycho.

Dh: Once I'm drunk, I'll be fine.*


Now it's Saturday afternoon and I am pleased to report that Dh does not have to smuggle himself into Mexico in order to avoid anyone he knows and get himself into a drunken stupor. He got well above the minimum requirement! Woo-hoo! I am really proud of him. He has been sooooo stressed all week, and freaking out about all the vocabulary words he didn't know. But he did a great job! (And we can go on our date tonight and have FUN!)

Pregnancy update (31 weeks, doctor's appointment on Valentine's Day):
  • I've gained 24 pounds. I'm okay with that.
  • Despite consistently measuring 4 cm big in December & January, I am only measuring 1 cm big now. (So why are the stretch marks getting worse???)
  • Apparently I really am supposed to take the blasted iron pills.
  • The NP recommended I befriend someone with an indoor pool. Not her most helpful advice.

*This is only funny if you know that we never drink.

Thanks to your DH being so stinkin smart the double date was so much fun. And I am relieved I didn't have to send my DH after him.

Dang iron pills. I bet I'd have more energy if I took mine more than...once a week or so.

Congrats to your husband. That is a BIG accomplishment and I know he is thrilled (you both are) to have that behind you! Yeah for date night!
