So just as a little update, I'm not freaking out anymore about my fluid issue. I was a little scared at first, but now I'm thinking rationally. You know how it is...your doctor tells you something is not normal or routine, and you start to go down the worst-case-scenario list and consulting Dr. Google. So anyway, I'm trusting my normal doctor and waiting and seeing what the sonogram says in two weeks. On the other hand, we are preparing ourselves for the idea of possibly having the baby a month early. It just seems like the practical thing to do so that we're not caught blindside, especially with Michael's project at work.
Okay, so my OMG moment of the month...Michael and I had marriage counseling today, and we stopped at the Starbucks in Southlake afterward for a drink and a bite to eat. So we both ordered drinks and sandwiches, and I ordered a piece of low-fat banana cake. The total was $20 and change. I give her my debit card...denied. "Let's try that again," she says. Denied again! OMG! What?? There were like 7 people in line after us. I had like $3 cash and no other cards to call upon.
They graciously gave us the drinks for free since they already started making mine, and we embarrassingly left the two sandwiches and cake on the counter. We had to stand there and wait for them to finish making Michael's drink for what felt like an eternity while we made eye contact with no one.
While we were talking to the cashier we remembered that our bank was switching from Mastercard to Visa debit cards and that they had sent us the new cards in the mail telling us that the old ones would no longer work as of yesterday. Well, yeah, we forgot. And we hadn't activated our new cards yet or put them in our wallets yet. We went straight from there to home to get our cards and then to the bank to activate them. (We didn't do it over the phone because we wanted to change our pins, in case you were wondering.)
The three things that made it better were knowing that we had the money in the bank, getting the drinks for free, AND knowing that it would have been WAY worse if the kids were with us and we made them put back their chocolate milks that they usually get there. That would NOT have been pretty.
