Throwing Sperm

OK, OK, so everyone thinks their husband is great. I mean that's why we married them.

If you will indulge me for a minute I'd like to tell you three wonderful things my husband has done this week...

1. On Monday he cooked dinner. This is no big deal. He cooks dinner pretty much every night. But on Monday he made a frozen pasta carbonara thing and picked all the peas out of mine before I got home from work. I really can't believe that someone loves me enough to pick the peas out of my dinner. He missed three peas, but I forgave him.

2. On Tuesday he brought home a bunch of ergonomic computer stuff, because I have been experiencing some seriously annoying carpal tunnel symptoms lately. (In fact, he is yelling at me to get off the laptop right now.)

3. This weekend we got a letter from the old RE's office. Apparently hubby has some frozen sperm at the lab and we have to decide what to do with it. I gave the letter to hubby and told him to check the "destroy" box and send it back. Hubby's response was, "Is there a box to check if I want it thawed and thrown in the doctor's face?" Happiness is a marriage where you have the same sick sense of humor.

That's hilarious!

I am amazed that he would pick peas out of your dinner though. But, that's from the perspective of someone whose husband is always nagging at her to eat more (er, some) vegetables!

Picking out the peas out of pasta dishes is pretty impressive. Mine expects my olives but I have to pick them out and throw them on his plate for him.

You guys crack me up :) And what an adorable hubby - for all those reasons! (and more I'm sure :))

Your husband is awesome.

I love that you noted his oversight of the three peas.

And I hope that you actually wrote next to the destroy box that you'd rather have it thrown in RE's face.

That's just plain awesome!

I think I'm in love with your husband:)

I love that he picked out your peas. That is just great. And his comment about throwing the sperm is hilarious. I'd love to throw something at someone right now...(who and what I'm not sure)

infertilityrocks said...

Quite a catch! I think I'm feeling a little like throwing sperm in my RE's face lately. Is your husband for hire, and does he provide his own sperm or need a separate sample?

Jenn said...

Hi from ICLW. Laughed my butt off about the sperm. Thanks for the cheery moment. Good luck on your cycle, I'm starting my first this summer. Sure hope we have a good doc on the first try.
