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 :oops: 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. :oops:

  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 went to buy some milk the other day. In my slippers… Not my proudest moment ;)

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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. :( My boys were young then and used to draw pictures of “when mommy broke the car”.

  8. 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! :oops:

  9. I washed the same load of laundry twice the other day. Today my ten year old brought two left shoes to school. You’re definitely not alone.

  10. 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.

  11. :oops: 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!! :lol:

  12. 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!

  13. 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 :) )

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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… :smile: have a great day

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. Thinking I was faster than my 3 year old, I fell in divit spraining my ankle, and my son kept running!

  20. 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.

  21. Love the view.

    Just yesterday I had wrote out a check for Market Day at my nieces school. Double checked on the way over to the school that I had the check. Get inside school and no check to be found. Sigh

  22. Nice view!

    I did something similar a couple weeks ago. Put a pot of water with a chicken breast on to cook to make soup–except I turned on the wrong burner and did not realize it for more than half an hour. Oops. At least I didn’t set the building on fire, or set off the smoke detectors. :???:

  23. Beautiful view. :smile: Nice to see as yesterday was gloomy & overcast due to incoming storm. The storm has arrived! It has been raining since I got up around 8:30 am which is late for me! It was so dark I just did not wake up! At times it poured buckets! It is a great day to stay inside read, maybe start decorating for Christmas. Not a day to be outside. I don’t mind the rain. Wish I was reading Rescue Me but I have library books with due dates!! The one I am trying to get through now is due tomorrow & there is a hold on it so I can not renew!! Such is life!! :grin:

    I have done many silly things in my life but can’t think of one recently. That said, I’m sure I have forgotten some dumb thing I did!! :shock:

  24. I put dinner in the oven, then proceeded to sit down and read a book. Forgetting to set any kind of timer to remind me that I should check on it…..uh…..dinner was burned…..beyond reasonable recognition or eating. *sigh* Hubby refused to eat out….had to start all over again…..he hid my Kindle. *sigh*

  25. Went out to my friends bachelorette party wearing new heals that were too tall for my ungraceful self. I did alright all night until we got to the mall. FELL right in front of the huge doors, onto hands and knees even. It was glorious. Luckily, my friends were right next to me to pick me up (and laugh).

  26. fell down on one knee yesterday at my sisters house when I was walking down the stairs

  27. Well, at my niece’s wedding last Christmas she had these beautiful center pieces of greenery. So we took some of them home and the next day I proceeded to water them because they felt very dry. My daughter walks into the kitchen and proceeds to say “Mom, what are you doing?” I said, “Watering the center pieces because they are very, very dry, and she said, “That’s because they are FAKE!” Oops! They looked so real. :oops:

  28. I stepped outside into the frigid air the other morning to wrangle my dogs. I didn’t really realize how cold it was so I called them and went to step inside. Unfortunately my stinkin slipper got caught on the small step up before I got to the door. Wham! I went down. Luckily I caught myself about an inch before my nose planted itself in the concrete.

    I am thoroughly enjoying Rescue My Heart! Feel better now?

  29. My cell phone quit back in the summer and my son was checking it out and ask when I had gotten it wet. Then it dawned on me I had been sticking it in my bra when I went for a walk because I didn’t have pockets in my pants. Believe me when I say that sweat will fry a cell phone.

  30. I seperated the clothes. Three them on the washer, added detergent, set the washer, and then I walked away. Later I wondered why the clothes were so dry as I threw them in the dryer. After drying them for two minutes I yelped and ran back to the laundry room to throw them into the washer and actually wash them first. Doh!

  31. Oh, dude. In 15 minutes after getting home my cat knocked over an antique pitcher in the bathroom that’s part of a set, I broke 2 china coasters in the kitchen, and then fell off the sofa. Yes. I fell off the sofa. Fully awake and sober. No, I have no idea how.

  32. You sound like me! I put a roast in the crock pot and forgot to turn it on. Four hours later I couldn’t understand why I didn’t smell anything cooking….duh! The following day, the power went out and I couldn’t get in my house – the garage door wouldn’t go up and all of my storm doors were locked; so I went shopping! :) I just finished all of the Lucky Harbor books and LOVED them! I feel like I am personal friends with all of the characters!

  33. We moved into our new house on November 9th which is awesome. Only problem is I can’t seem to remember that and have driven to the old house 3 times in the last 2 weeks. I know I will eventually get it right. ha ha

  34. Hey,I’m glad to hear someone else has put something in the oven and forgot to turn it on! :razz:

  35. Hopped in the van to run to the store, put seatbelt on but it was way too tight across my chest. Unhooked seatbelt and pulled it as far as it would go. Still tight, decided to heck with it and just drove to the store while leaning forward the entire time trying to get the seatbelt to give up some slack as it really was tight. Pull up at tge store and open the door to find I had my seatbelt shut in the door, that’s why it wouldn’t give.
    And I’ve done this twice now.
