People Say the Funniest Things...

We had a wonderful trip to Disney. I have almost uploaded all the pictures and just need to organize and fix a few. I sat down today and made a list of my next 5 posts. I like it when I can plan ahead like that.

Right now though? I am hiding.

My dad and grandfather are cutting holes in the walls. Literally. We had a wet bar downstairs that we are getting rid of in order to move the computer down there to make room for the crib in the guest room. Follow all that?

Getting rid of a wet bar requires plumbing work. (I never thought work done on my house would come with the statement , "Just like we saw on This Old House!")

It also requires getting into the closet under the stairs. (Why yes! That is a Christmas tree currently residing in my living room!)

For the last two hours my water and possibly the water for three of my closest neighbors has been turned off while they cut they get rid of the pipes.

My job was to make lunches. It is now after lunch. So I am hiding.

Anyway...that is not the point of this post.

The Irishman went back to work today after two weeks off. In typical fashion, he lost his keys. We'd given the spare house key to my father, so I had to wait for Morgan to leave before heading to water aerobics. I got to class about 10 minutes late. Thankfully it was the fill-in teacher I do not like as much, so I didn't mind too much.

When I got into the pool though these two ladies were looking at me. I thought I heard a "Did you tell her?" I was afraid they were going to comment on my tardiness. The one spoke up...

"I hate to tell you this, but this isn't working for you."

(I am sure the look on my face was priceless...)

"You keep coming but you are still gaining weight!"

They were really sweet and asked if it was a boy of a girl and so on. We talked about their grandkids and all.

Then, after class I was getting changed in the locker room when I noticed this older woman walking in. She looked a bit weak and like she may have been a cancer patient. I saw her looking my way and as I was walking out she stopped me. I was expecting her to say something about my belly or to ask about the baby.

"You have the prettiest, straight toes."

People say the funniest things!
