>”We need to talk about those vacations you were planning,” my mom said on the phone today.
“What vacations?” I asked.
“You said that you and Hubs wanted to take two short weekend trips in the year after the baby is born, rather than your annual weeklong trip together. Since you’ll be nursing.”
“Oh, yeah,” I said. “I haven’t even thought about the details of that yet.” I had, after all, just told her the sad story of how the insurance company had decided today that our car, involved in a small wreck on Friday night that injured no one and wasn’t our fault, was totalled.
“Good,” she said, “because I just don’t think I’m up to watching the babies for you anymore. My back could go out at any minute.”
It’s been one of those weeks.
