Are you kidding me?

Today I called a good friend from my high school days to get her address so I could send her an invitation to our jewelry party next month. I have always forgotten to get it from her after she got married. I asked her for it and you'll never guess what she said in return. Or maybe you will guess.

"Are you sending me a baby shower invitation?"

Are you freaking kidding me? Is that really something you ask someone you know has been struggling with infertility for two years? I said "No, I wish" and something else and she replied again with something else completely insensitive and I pretty much stopped that conversation and changed the subject.

Some days I feel like the only sane person left in this world.

Yuck. I'm a little surprised she could talk so clearly with the foot in her mouth....

((Crystal)) People are so insensitive. But you get pregnant you just have to learn to relax...thats all...when you least expect it....:-P (Erin ducks and runs for cover as Crystal tries to find something to throw at her...)

I want to comment but you already know what my rant will be.

If she comes to the party, make sure to have a rubber mallet nearby that you can conk her on the head with.
