Aubrey Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 So dh was going to preach his 1st sermon at his parents' church tonight. I really wanted to go, but hadn't decided for sure because it's an hr away, there's no nursery for the dc, & I'd have to get dressed. In clothes that fit. And are not pj's. Then dh pointed out that today was supposed to be the hottest day so far this summer. He had to leave at 3PM, right around the time our apt becomes unbearable. So that decided it. I put on my one decent outfit that still covers everything, a big, fake smile, & went. (I've noticed that if you clench your teeth hard enough while fake smiling, things start to look pretty funny, & people seem friendlier, so I was holding that face at least until the car cooled off. The fact that we were on empty & immediately had to kill the a/c was fine.) Anyway, we get to the church, & guess what? Since we're the first ones there, there's no air. His parents met us there, though, & turned it on in the sanctuary, so it was...at least as cool as our apt while the band was rehearsing. (Dh was also playing w/ them.) But once dh started preaching, & baby started screaming, "Dada!!!!" I was out in the foyer. :lol: The irony of having escaped our barely a/c'd apt to stand in a totally UNa/c'd foyer w/ an active baby & unentertained dc did not escape me. By the time we left, my ankles were the size of my knees. Now, I'd gone on the condition that when it was over, we. go. home. IMMEDIATELY. Before anyone has a chance to say anything untoward, etc. W/out going to a restaurant together, where the chairs are like torture devices, created to make ankles swell. But the dc had had to be quiet & good for 2hrs. They'd seen their grparents but not gotten to play w/ them, really. And dh was glowing w/ excitement & pride. So...I suggested we stay. Meet his parents for dinner. We were headed to their house when they called back to change the plans. They got home to find that THEY HAD NO AIR!!!!!!!!!! :smilielol5::smilielol5::smilielol5::smilielol5: Do you think I"m being followed? Anyway, thr a series of changes in plans (to which I applied aforementioned gritty-teeth smile), we ended up at his aunt & uncle's house w/ the WHOLE fam. Which is fine. I like his fam. So we're sitting around the table chatting, & it's dwindled to just dh, mil, aunt, & me, & mil is going on & on about how men think, & dh is cracking me up w/ his patience, & we're joking. Anyway, dh misunderstands something I say, & retorts (jokingly): "Are you calling me fat?" Aunt pipes up, "No, Aubrey can't call ANYBODY fat right now!" The table went DEAD silent. I burst out laughing until I cried. Aunt started stuttering & back-tracking as fast as she could while dh started doing damage control, but I hafta tell ya. It was just funny. I don't know what it is. Pg just brings it out in people. :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
