Rock, Paper, Scissors

"So what have you been doing lately, Janna?"

"Oh a little this and a little of that."
And look what a little this and a little of that can do to you:


I know.

It all started with a little innocent game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with my husband.

“Dan, should we have another baby?” I asked him sincerely.  “The window of opportunity is closing.  I feel it might be an urgent decision.”   
I had a weak moment.  

I couldn’t think about anything but shriveling, rotting eggs. 

“I don’t know, Janna,” he responded hesitantly.

"Dan, there is only one way to decide.”  I held my hand out in a fist, the other hand cupping it.  “Rock, paper, scissors.... then we will know.”

So we played.

And I lost.

So we played two out of the three.

And I won.

Then I began to realize the reality and possibilities of this dangerous game.  I said, “Dan, this is silly.  What are we thinking?”  But by this time...

Fate had decided.  

“What in the world?”  We both looked at each other, and then back at the wand, the one I just peed on.

“You should wash your hands,” I said to him as he set it down on the counter.  “You should wash the counter too.”  

So why haven’t I been blogging?  What have I been doing with my time?  

Oh, just a bit of this...

And a little of that....

And a lot of this...

Rock, Paper, Scissors can be a life altering game.

And I have more to say about this pregnancy thing....
