Hump Day

Today’s Office View…

Okay so really this was yesterday’s view. I sat there in a beach chair like it was 80 degrees instead of the 19 degrees it was. I was bundled from head to toe but there was no internet and no teenagers and it was gloriously quiet unless you count the fact that my stomach was growling because I was hungry.

But I did some plotting and it was time well spent. Then I went home and accidentally locked myself out of my email account. That takes real talent, folks. I also put a frozen lasagna in the over and forgot to turn on the oven, and fell going UP my stairs, but hey, no one’s perfect, right?

Tell me some of you, at least one of you, has done something silly lately. Don’t leave me hanging out here all alone.

  1. If it makes you feel better, I lightly sprained my ankle tripping over my own feet in clogs yesterday. All I was doing was walking across the floor and over I went ๐Ÿ˜ณ The sad thing is that this isn’t the first time I have done this !

  2. Saturday we celebrated Thanksgiving again, the turkeys were still a little frozen. So I took them to my laundry room where i have a large deep sink. I put the turkeys in the sink and started the cold water. I then proceeded to go upstairs and take care of a few other things. I forgot about the running water 45 minutes. Needless to say things were a little wet downstairs. It required the wet dry vac and mop. The best part? when I got downstairs and realized that the sink was overflowing the two turkeys were bobbing at the top of the sink because the sink was overflowing. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  3. Left my cell phone in the refrigerator and I’m not even sure how it happened. I hadn’t just come from the grocery store, my hands weren’t full that I can remember. Sad thing it took me forever to find it, I had the whole household looking. Which, you know, teenagers laughing their asses off!

  4. I put the peanut butter in the dishwasher and the jelly in the tupperware cabinet. And then the bread in the sink. I had a really bad blonde moment that day. (Last Week)

  5. This story pertains to you in a round about way. I recently got a Kindle for my birthday, so I have been reading on that. But, on Monday I bought Rescue My Heart on paperback. So I’m sitting there reading it and I go to flip the page. But, I don’t flip it, I push it… like it was a Kindle. Needless to say the page didn’t turn.

  6. This happened a while ago but it’s burned in my memory. I also put supper in the oven and forgot to turn it on. When hubby came home he he was understanding and we ordered a pizza instead. Since it was my error I went to pick it. Drove over a frost heave getting into the place. I was able to drive home but apparently the car was dripping transmission fluid. Long story short, the transmission had to be replaced. ๐Ÿ™ My boys were young then and used to draw pictures of “when mommy broke the car”.

  7. I had pre-made most of the sides for Thanksgiving, and just had to heat them on turkey day! I also make a pretzel jello salad for the day. Well, I turned the oven on and loaded it up with the things that needed to be warmed. 45 minutes later, I realized that I cooked the pretzel jello salad instead of the yams! Still embarrassed over that! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  8. I’ve locked myself out of my HOUSE. Which is sort of funny since my landlord has it dummy proofed and has spares around for me to find. But once I collected all the spares (in a variety of locking myself out incidents) and had managed to put them ALL in the house…
    And still managed to be locked OUTSIDE the house.
    Skilled. I really have mad skills.

  9. ๐Ÿ˜ณ I somehow managed to shut my arm in the automatic door at work while locking it! Thought for a minute I had broked my wrist, which would be bad, cause I was the only manager there for 12 hours! Then I hit myself in the face with a milk crate and gave myself a lovely black eye. Oh the fun you can have overnight in a Walmart….and the scary thing is I’m the fearless leader on third shift!
    Have a happy Hump Day!! ๐Ÿ˜†

  10. I became “that crazy teacher” when I fell in front of my class last week. FOR NO REASON. You know, my own feet were in the way. There’s nothing worse than 23 pairs of eleven year old eyes watching you make a fool out of yourself!

  11. I sent an e-mail to the wrong person and left the washed clothes in the washing machine for the night on Sunday and I was invited for a cup of coffee on Monday by a friend of mine and it turned out that she had run out of coffee (okay, it is not my fault, I know, I know ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  12. Ok, I thawed the turkey, washed the turkey, took out the turkey neck, looked for the gizzards & didn’t find them, brined the turkey overnight, filled the turkey cavity with fresh rosemary, cut lemons and celery, cooked the turkey,and let husband carve the turkey…. he found the gizzards in the neck area…. luckily in paper, not plastic…
    We ate the turkey..didn’t die of gizzard poisoning…

  13. Beautiful!

    Silly, yes. While doing decorative things like the holiday tree and lights outside and so on, I kept carrying things upstairs that I did not need upstairs. Then I would have to carry them down again. I do not understand this.

  14. Wow dont you know by now that we would never leave you hanging…we all do the silly things that you do..and you make us laugh about those very things everyday… ๐Ÿ™‚ have a great day

  15. I went out in my shoes in the snow to fill the landladys bird feeders.. I know it was asking for a cold, but so far I have I have been okay…
    But really if I had a view like this it would temp me to sit and enjoy it no matter what the tempature was.

  16. I was in the middle of helping a patron find books when I started coughing and couldn’t stop. My eyes started to water; the patron was looking at me strangely and asking if I was alright. I couldn’t answer, so I held up my finger and walked away to get a drink of water. When I came back, the patron asked if I was ok. It was embarassing to have to say, “Yes, I was just choking on my own spit.” Unfortunately, this happens to me way too often!

  17. Gorgeous view, Jill!

    I bought a new digital meat thermometer where the probe is connected to the temp detector that remains outside the oven while the meat cooks. We were cooking a Turducken and got it all set to go. Then we forgot to turn the probe on. Thankfully I knew about the time it should be done and checked so was able to save it before it burned, though it was a little dry.
