We've had a little streak of bad luck this week (or is it this decade?). I was supposed to have my first appointment with the o.b. on Thursday, but upon arriving at the office was informed that the doc was stuck at the hospital for an emergency c-section. Furthermore, the soonest she can re-schedule is May 21st. Are you kidding? Three more weeks? She's a popular "gyn-ee" but c'mon! I'm 12 weeks now, so that puts my first visit at 15 weeks - nice! I believe it was the same day that our washing machine decided to stop functioning BEFORE the drain cycle, leaving nasty water to fester in the machine. For some reason it was very difficult to unhook it from the wall and when we finally did get it out and put it on the dolly, it had a flat tire, making water slosh out all over the laundry room and garage. Needless to say, our house smelled like the bog of eternal stench for a few days during this process. (Aren't we glad we have The Labyrinth in our pool of knowledge? Amy recently compared her son to the worm in that movie). We went to look at new washers, and picked one out, only to discover it was on back order and couldn't be delivered until the 16th. AWESOME! We never reach the bottom of the laundry baskets WITH a functioning washing machine, so I'd hate to see the results of waiting another few weeks! After wasting all that time in the store (while all three kids touched every appliance and at least one of them rolled around on the ground), we made it out to discover a flat tire on the van! The whole fam then got to sit at the auto place while they extracted the top of some fingernail clippers from the tire and repaired it, thus making us embarrassingly late for our "Rock Band" party that night.
