One exciting/awful morning!

My morning started out like any other... woke up at 8:30, showered, ate breakfast, took the dishes out of the dishwasher, and folded some laundry before I headed to work. I had some extra time on my hands so I figured I would run to Roberts to get some Envelopes for a friends baby shower. If I went between 9:00-10:00 am I could get them for 50% off. So off to Roberts I went! As I pulled up to Roberts there was NO parking... that place was completely packed! I guess everyone was taking the opportunity to get 50% off like I was. Finally, I found a parking spot in the Chucky Cheese parking lot and headed for Roberts. I went in feeling a little overwhelmed with all the people there but couldn't resist looking at the cricut cartridges. They were half off and that is a dang good deal. I found two cartridges that I loved and got the envelopes that I needed and stood in line. I got to the line at 9:40, which means I still had 20 minutes before the sale ended. I knew I would make it, even though the line was almost near the back of the store. 15 minutes pass and I am STILL in line... I only have 5 more minutes to buy this before the 50% off ends. There were 2 people in front of me so I was feeling pretty confident until.... I started getting really hott.... and claustrophobic... and then I started getting worried... because I knew that if I left the line I would loose out on the deal but at this point I just didn't know if I could make it... something was deff wrong. A couple seconds went by as I was fanning my face with my hand and then I felt it. "Crap, I am about to throw up." (The joys of being pregnant). I was forced to leave the line and I was headed straight for the bathroom. I wasn't sure where it was, but I figured it was somewhere in the back of the store. I got half way there and by that time I started sweating profusely and had a hard time walking. I couldn't believe this was happening... in Roberts of all places! I finally make it to the bathroom and my worst nightmare comes true... IT IS A ONE PERSON BATHROOM AND IT IS LOCKED! I had no idea what to do... by this point I was down on all fours panicking because I knew this was not going to be good. A lady saw me and said, "Honey, is everything alright? Can I help you?" I couldn't even look at her.. all I said was, "I need a trashcan... I am about to throw up!" Before I knew it... i started throwing up... all over the floor in Roberts... and I didn't even care because I had no other choice. Then the embarrassment came as people gathered around trying to figure out what was going on. I felt sooo bad! The worker came to the back and I just kept apologizing... and she was so nice and told me not to worry about a thing and that they will take care of it. The saddest part was I didn't get my 50% off those amazing cricut cartridges when I was so close to being the next in line. What a bummer...
I have been pretty lucky because I haven't been very sick while being pregnant... but then there a few moments like that that just seem to top it all off. ;) I left that store wanting to ball my eyes out, I was so embarrassed. I called my Mom and told her what happened and like always she makes everything better. We just laughed together... after all laughter is the best medicine.

Hope you all enjoyed my eventful and embarrassing morning... :) I am ready to relax and take a little nap!


  1. Oh Jen!! I'm so sorry!!!! It's not embaressing!!!! I love you!!!!

  2. That story is hilarious!! I know it must have been terrible at the time, and so sad that they didn't give you the 50% off.

    I don't know if I have a story to top that although I threw up plenty with my kids. I did throw up in a Cessna plane and in the BYU bookstore, but I think your story might top both those.
