Hubby started his new job this week. It's been rough, we've gotten very little sleep. This morning he asked me to meet him at work with a VOID check so they can add him to payroll. Any normal wife would have said something like the following, "Sure honey bunny, I'll take the curlers out of my hair and be right over as quick as punch".
I said something like this, "WHAT?!!!!???!?!?!?!?!?! You want me to do what? Can't you just take it in tomorrow? Can't you come here and get it during lunch?.... Do you want me to DIE?!"
I have no cell phone so I would have to write down his directions and pray they were right. I would have to take the 408 and I-4. Both of which are very large roads. Neither of which I've ever driven on before. Plus I would have to pay tolls - a million of them. S-C-A-R-Y in all caps... I suck at directions, I'm not a good driver and I'm no good at throwing coins in a basket even when I'm not trying to drive.
But it had to be done, so I sucked it up and decided to do it.
"Don't leave until I get back from lunch" he instructed. Okay. Great. More time to panic. And that's what I did. I can't do it I can't do it I can't do it, I had decided. But I must - I love him and he needs me. A couple hours later while struggling giving me detailed directions hubby says, "never mind I'll just do it tomorrow."
I haven't been so mad and relieved at the same time for as long as I can remember.
