Mundane Mondays

This morning I had my first prenatal doctor’s appointment and it ended up taking much longer than expected, so I took the rest of the day off work.  It was a pretty mundane day, but sometimes I think you learn the most about people in the mundane details.  So, here are a few things that I saw throughout my mundane day:

– My desk calendar which told me that my doctor’s appointment was TODAY and not TOMORROW.  Oh, crap.

–  Two husbands sitting with their wives in the OB/GYN’s office, looking horrified and pretending to read Marie Claire magazines.  I almost gave them one of my Preggie Pops.

–  An old woman in the CVS where I was picking up my prescription.  She stopped a young man in a Marines uniform, took his hand, kissed his cheek, and told him thank you.

–  My dog with her two paws up on the counter, trying to reach a head of lettuce.  Really?  Lettuce?  You’re going to risk a butt beating for a head of lettuce?  Really?

–  My doctor tell me that chocolate milk is a great source of calcium.  Score!

–  My baby’s heartbeat.  Coolest part of my day.

–  My debit card at the gas station.  And that was the last time I saw it.  Damn.

–  A redheaded 2-year-old with big blue eyes in the grocery store.  If I have a boy, it will look like that little boy.  I think I stopped and stared for about 2 full minutes.  And then his mom gave me a disgusted look and wheeled him away.  Goodbye, Pretend Son.

–  A girl with a bumper sticker that said, “I brake for weiners.”  I’m assuming she meant hot dog weiners.  Cause I brake for those, too.

–  In about 4 minutes, I will spend my afternoon with my friend Oprah while I make lasagna for dinner.

I love mundane Mondays.
