After the self inflicted madness of the weekend, I was pretty wiped out. So, yesterday morning when The DQ told me her stomach hurt, I didn't even blink an eye. I declared that we were staying home. I called in to work and then her and I went back to sleep until 9 a.m.
I should probably feel guilty, but alas, I don't. I got the five loads of laundry done. I got the sinkful of dishes done, I took care of some secret Christmas stuff via the internet. I made phone calls......to every.....single.....person.....in...my.......family. Some I may have even called twice. I did not get out of my pajamas ALL.DAY.LONG. Do I feel any shame? No way. I didn't take a shower either. It was the most wonderful lazy, yet-got-some-stuff-done-days, I have had in a while. I felt refreshed and ready to go back to work this morning. I am the type of person that too many days at home is a bad thing. One extra day....is bliss I tell you!
A Ringtology update:
My sister D is pregnant. I went with her to her first ultrasound last week. The ultrasound technician said he thought it was probably a boy. Yet, he wouldn't say 100% that it's a boy. I had bought girl clothes (see ringtology blog) but I was still hesitant to take them back. Now keep in mind that all the ring tests that my sister has performed THUS FAR, have been accurate. So my ringtologist sister went over to D's house and performed the ringtology test again. This time it showed boy. Which means I will have to take back the girl stuff I bought, and exchange it for boy stuff.
It's a good thing I don't care what people think about me. Otherwise, it MIGHT would upset me to have to go to Kohl's and walk up to the customer service counter and say the following: "Excuse me, I need to exchange these girl clothes for boy clothes. The reason I need to exchange them is because my sister and I performed a ritual over my pregnant sister's belly, and we thought the baby was a girl. The ultrasound has proven the baby to be a boy, and we have performed a re-test of the ritual, which gave us a boy result".
It really is a good thing that I feel no shame about my nutty self. Yessirreee... Otherwise I MIGHT need a disguise and some dark sunglasses to make said trip to return baby clothes.
The theory on the original Ringtology test, is that we performed it too soon, giving us the incorrect girl result. Of course....as I have said all along....you got a 50/50 shot!
