So What Wednesday

Oh yes it’s that time again, time to say SO WHAT!! As usual I’m linking up with Shannon over at "Life After I "Dew" and…

This week I'm saying:

So what if…  While running errands this week I was in line behind every single unorganized, completely oblivious person in our town? From the lady returning a Keurig in a Publix bag to Kohl’s with no receipt or box, to the couple returning a used lawn mower at Home Depot – also with no receipt – having a 10-minute conversation about when they bought it.  Yes. What started out as I’ll-just-be-a-few-minutes turned into What-planet-am-I-on?

So what if…  For the first time in my entire life I spent a holiday completely alone? Yes this Easter was the first time in my history that I was not with family on a holiday. I wasn’t able to go home so instead I stayed home alone and completely focused on Project Prepare for Baby 2012. I got so much done!! And yes I missed my family. But in my life as a military spouse I can check off another “first”. Many military spouses spend holidays alone…  It just comes with the territory!

So what if…  I totally want a doula for our baby’s birth but I haven’t even started interviewing anyone yet? I’ve only got 10 weeks left in this pregnancy – yikes, I better get on it!!

So what if…  I am making a return for something I purchased in 2008? Um, yes that would be four years ago. It’s a doggy life jacket I got for Daphne Doodle thinking she would need it as she entered her geriatric years. But that dog is like a fishing bobber in the water! She’s weightless and she just swims and swims and swims. No life jacket for her! Thank you LL Bean for having a remarkable return policy!!

Are you saying SO WHAT to anything this week?

  3. That is ONE incredible return policy! And I thought Nordstrom's was lenient ; ) I recently read on someone's blog to check into a doula who is finishing up training, they are significantly less expensive (and perhaps more available since they have to get so many hours in) than a fully certified one. Of course, if cost isn't an issue for ya, go with the pro. I've never had one myself but have only heard good things! PS: I nominated you for a blog award ; )

    1. That is a GREAT idea - I will definitely see about a doula-in-training. And while I continue to believe that I will one day will the lottery and money won't be an issue, for now I'm always looking for a good deal! :) WHAT?! You nominated ME?? Tammy, this absolutely made my day!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I am so touched :)
