With the exception of Ezra (who was planned only a couple of months in advance), I planned to get pregnant at least two years in advance with my other two pregnancies. This clearly shows that I am a planner, people. A planner.
So, when something comes along that was not planned for (as in, Vernon not getting accepted into the chiro training program and, thus, not knowing what we'll do next), I don't know what to do with myself. I don't like NOT knowing. Everything else in our lives has changed enough already. I would at least like to know what happens next. Remember, I have a structured mind, people. A STRUCTURED MIND!
This is especially hard when Vernon keeps putting off making the decision on what to do (open his own practice, or associate for a year). QUESTION: Does it sound like I'm being passive-aggressive, knowing full well that Vernon will be reading this? ANSWER: A resounding yes! Make a decision, Vernon!
See, Vernon is the type of person who, when looking over a menu at a restaurant, is always the last to decide what to order. He is the type of person who takes forever when it is his turn to do something (ANYTHING!) when playing board games. I've known this about him for a long time. It is just the way that he operates.
But, c'mon! Pick an item from the menu, play your card... and MAKE A FREAKING DECISION!
