|Me 24 years ago at my High School graduation|
24 years ago, about this time of year, I was a newlywed and newly pregnant. I grew up in Maryland but had never had the pleasure of having crabs, until after I was married.
Bo had to teach me the skill of picking crabs and getting my hands all messy (Never a fan of messy hands). We ate crabs until we were full and then headed home to our tiny 1 bedroom apartment.
We watched TV until we fell asleep on our pull out couch. Yes, our bedroom was only big enough for a bed OR dressers so we had to make a choice. We chose a pull out couch. It was comfy for the most part. Never bothered me until like the 8th month of pregnancy.
Back to the story…
About 2:00 AM, I wake up sick as a dog!
I almost had to crawl to the bathroom.
I was disposing of the crabs from my first crab feast.
Laying on the bathroom floor, I hear someone coming into the kitchen and the door opens…
He's going to wipe my head and get me a drink and do all the things that my mom would do if I were still at home, right?
My wonderful husband steps over me and pees in the toilet, turns around, steps back over me and goes back to bed!!!!!
I am an 18 year old, pregnant, sick, red headed ball of anger by this time. My only thought was, How could he do this to me? Doesn't he even care that I am so sick. I am pregnant with his baby and he doesn't even ask me if I am OK?
Okay, maybe more than one thought…
I finish with my sickness, clean up the bathroom, get my own drink and go back to bed…ANGRY!!
He gets up in the morning all chipper and of course, I am not. I watch him get up and my mind is racing 100 miles an hour. I had so much to say to him but the only thing that came out was,
"You could have peed on my head!!!"
Isn't life funny!! I am sick today and this story came to my mind as I was laying in my bed, feeling horrible. I guess it could be worse…lol
I hope you all have a great day and that you are all well.
