Ladies (and gents), it has been a weird effing week in my world. If you’ve had a weird day or week, share it here. I’m sure we could all use some humor!
Monday: (Back story: My husband and I have shitty well water so we wash our clothes at my parents’ house. My mom will flip our laundry for us when she’s home.) My mom called my cell while I was at work. I didn’t answer so she immediately called my office phone twice. Thinking someone had died, I answered the phone. She breathlessly goes, “Do you have time to answer a question?! I was flipping laundry and a Trojan Magnum condom fell out of Shawn’s pants! Is that supposed to be there?!?!” I sheepishly told her yes, that is supposed to be there. My husband apparently has bad aim and hit the laundry basket rather than the trash can. Later that day, I went pee and there was a dollar bill stuck to my lower back. I have not been doing anything that would end with a dollar bill on my lower back.
Tuesday: Got pulled over on my way home from Zumba class. The trooper said I was going 60 in a 45. I assured him my speedometer read 50 mph. He runs my license, comes back to my car, tells me to have a nice night, fist bumps me, and leaves.
Wednesday: My husband and I search three different Wal Marts for a specific Christmas tree. Never thought I would go to three different Wal Marts in the same day.
Thursday: Well, Thursday was relatively normal in comparison.
Friday: Hasn’t gotten weird yet but I’m just waiting for the insanity to begin.
Anyone else have anything to share?

s2bmrscook: too funny!
We’ve just had a week of ups and downs. Tuesday I got great news at work then DH got all crabby about doing dishes. Wednesday we had a ‘snowstorm’ so it took almsot 2 hours to get home = both of us cranky. Yesterday started crappy, the garage refused to put our winter tires on (thread about that) then I got given hockey tickets at work – really really good ones so Darling Husband and I got to go to the game, Darling Husband literally bumped into one of his hockey heroes in the platinum club at the game, got pictures, got his jersey signed – great day after all.
Let’s see what happens today.

MsGinkgo: I bet that hockey game was fun!
Last night I went to the gym and asked the trainer one simple question (What weight should I start at with dumbbells to transition my chest and triceps routine from machines to all free weights?) and he decided that instead of just telling me the answer, he would put me through HIS ENTIRE CHEST ROUTINE. I could barely get my own shirt off when I got home!

Weird? No. Frustrating as hell? YES! Amazon screwed up my order FOUR times. The good news is, they gave me so many promo codes for the hassel, my items are free. The bad news is, I hate waiting for UPS! You feel like a prisoner just waiting for the doorbell to ring. I don’t want to miss them because their pick up facility is way way out of town!

s2bmrscook: Hockey game was AMAZING. I think it might be a bigger highlight in his year than our wedding (not really, but you know what I mean…)
Hopefully you’re not hurting too bad today! Mean trainers!!!

s2bmrscook: Oh my gosh, the story with your mother made me crack up. “Is that supposed to be there?!?” Sounds like something mine would do.

Yesterday I waited 7 hours for the heat pump repairman to show up. During which time, my daughter threw up and I cut the palm of my hand with a knife. Today is a much better day.

Yes! I have had THE most frustrating week at work. I mean, it has probably been the most stressful week since I’ve atarted working here, basically everyone was being the worst.
My dog got sick Wednesday night and went to the bathroom twice during the night (never happens)
An order I placed didn’t ship as it was supposed to and now I won’t get it until a week after I was supposed to.
My stepdad had surgery yesterday (long, stressful story)
My stepmom told me Monday that she wants to fly my fiancee and I down to visit them for Christmas. Sounds great but she is super unreliable and we have no idea if it’ll actually happen.
On the plus side, I finally picked which linens i want.

Our furnace in our apartment died Sunday – “fixed” Monday – melted itself Tuesday @ 3am (smoke in the apartment is super scary) – they didn’t get it fixed until late Wednesday night. back to back potlucks for Darling Husband and then my office. Super busy!
So many crazy things going on.
Yesterday was also my parents anniversary, my grandmother’s birthday, and my little brother’s birthday. Woot!
s2bmrscook: I do want to know where the dollar bill came from. I get the random wrapper in the laundry thing but maybe she was surprised about the magnum, not the wrapper itself – hahaha.

Nothing weird has happened this week. But there is a girls night in/sleepover that I’m going to tomorrow between me and my coworkers.

I made two people cry this week because they thought I was mad at them. I felt so bad I started crying with them! It was just a super busy but apparently they noticed a shift in my attitude and took it personal. Felt bad 🙁

I was told by a male coworker yesterday that I’ve been really nice the past two days…so apparently I’m a bitch most of the time? He said I’m usually “very abrasive”. I’m the only female in a group of 30 males, of course I’m “abrasive”…whatever the hell that means. lol
I ordered a few things from a 31 Gifts party, and my consultant told me my stuff would be here Monday. It didn’t show. Then she told me “no later than Wednesday”. It still didn’t show. I called corporate, they say she never placed my order, or anyone else’s order from the party. My consultant is still trying to tell me it’ll be here this weekend. The bad thing is she’s my friend…so needless to say I’m pissed.
