wonderfully weekend :: fail filled

7 Jul

Another weekend come and gone. Mondays after long, wonderful weekends are always hard. I hope you had a great Independence Day. I know I did!

The actual weekend was a little more subdued. Thankfully.

Saturday was my cousin Amy’s graduation party at the farm. It was hot. And nice to see everyone. Here is the only picture I managed to take.

Saturday night was pretty awful. Avery sucks at bedtime on a good night. And this was not a good night. Three hours and lots of screaming at the top of her little lungs. It was bad, people. We finally got silence at 11 freaking 30. ::fail 1::

Sunday started out pretty lazy. Then I got the bright idea that we should go pick strawberries. You know, stand in a field on a 90+ degree day. With a girl who won’t walk by herself. Memories, people. So I got a recommendation, looked up directions and off we go. Drive the 40ish minutes to the farm. And there is a sign “CLOSED TODAY.” W.T.F! Why are you closed on a weekend? Don’t you want my money?! ::fail 2::

Alright. We regroup. Go to REI for some tri supplies for Jeremy. Go home and have dinner.

After dinner my contact lens decided to try to kill me. I went to try and retrieve it and when I got it out, I saw it had ripped a chunk off. I have no idea if it is still in my eye or not. ::fail 3:: All I know is I started researching LASIK. And will be getting it done ASAP. New eyes before I turn 30!!

Then we thought it might be nice to go for a bike ride around Cleary Lake. It looks cloudy and getting darkish. But it was only 7pm, so we went for it.

Look at us all prepared!

ready to ride!

We get to the lake. And look at the radar. A big blob was basically a block away from where we were. ::fail 4::

We head home. Stop at Culver’s. Because this is frustration only a Concrete Mixer can fix. ::win!::

We get home and it seems like no rain was to be had in the area. ::fail 5::

Even with all that, I still had a nice weekend. Warm weather, time spent with my family, and frozen custard.

ranty rant

22 May

May 22: Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)

I like this topic. There are many things I could rant about. I have a lot of pet peeves. And, not to brag, but I’m a pretty accomplished complainer.

Today I choose: bad drivers.

I know, a topic we can all get on board with. I’ll start off by saying that I’m not the world’s greatest driver. But I don’t suck either.

What pisses me off (a shortened list):

  • When someone fails to use their blinker. It’s not there for decoration. USE IT!
  • When someone hangs out in the far left lane going below the speed limit. I want to punch you in the head.
  • People who don’t merge every other car. It’s common curtsey, people. Don’t be a dick.
  • When someone is in the far left lane, then they decide they want to make a right turn. What? Why?
  • People who honk at me when I have the right of way! (Usually men)

I could go on and on. What is your big pet peeve while driving?



a loaded question

6 May

May 6: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?

What I get paid to do:

  • answer phones
  • fight with said phones (the phone has it out to get me)
  • try to figure out what the person on the other line is asking (language barriers)
  • things that are not in my department
  • things that someone else should really be doing themselves
  • I am the Office Bitch

The things I do for free:

  • play with the most adorable 12 month old this world has ever seen
  • raise that adorable kid with my wonderful husband
  • balance work, home, life so that I get quality time with my wonderful husband
  • do everything on minimal sleep 🙂

Can you tell which I’d rather be doing? I like the free stuff better.

May 3: Things that make you uncomfortable.

I think this is one of my least favorite prompts of the month. My guess is because I like writing about fun or cute things. Like Avery. I know there are things that make me uncomfortable.  But can I think of them? Nope.

Oh, wait!

I have a co-worker that I don’t like very much. I like him the least amount you can before it crosses over to hate. But I am a big girl, so I try not to show when I get irritated at him. He makes me uncomfortable. He was talking on his cell phone while walking past my desk yesterday. As he was walking by he gave me the most creeptastic look. Ugh. I felt so skeeved out that I had to tell my Good Co-Worker. She was skeeved out on my behalf.

The End.

Sorry. I will have a better/more interesting post tomorrow. I hope. Hey, 31 topics in 31 days. I can’t make them all gems.

P.S. I hit 100 views for the first time yesterday. Maybe I should make 3 posts per day all the time! Haha.

auctions

27 Feb

Do people not understand how auctions work?

I’ve become a titch obsessed with bidding for handmade things on Facebook auctions. I bid on something for $1 (heck yeah!) and the bids are supposed to go up by $1 increments.  Five minutes after my bid someone bids $1. Uh, no. That’s not how it works, Dummy.

I’m tempted to bid $1 again.

public service

19 Feb

A couple of months ago, while I was checking in at the gym, there was this wet girl in her swimming suit yelling at one of the gym employees.  The gist of the yelling was the girl didn’t lock up her stuff and someone stole all of it. Which completely sucks. But I couldn’t feel too bad for her. There are signs all over telling you to lock your stuff up. Plus, you know, common sense. And what did she expect the gym employee to do about it?

So yesterday I went to workout with a friend. In the locker room we each opened at least 2 lockers full of stuff. Just there for the taking. I came up with a public service idea. I’m going to print out a bunch of sticky notes saying something like, “If I was a huge jerk, all your stuff would be gone. You’re welcome I’m not. Go buy a $4 lock!!” But then I figured if they aren’t going to lock up their valuables, maybe they wouldn’t pay any notice to my super helpful note. New idea: I’m going to leave this note, “Since you didn’t bother locking up your stuff, you won’t miss the item(s) I have hidden in the gym. Happy Hunting!! P.S. Go buy a lock!!” You’re welcome, gym patrons!!

P.S. I had to delete my one Facebook “fan” for spammy comments. So could one of you “Like” my page? I just need one.
