Goodbye Ice

Well the ice is melting and Luke and I have both headed back to work.

I could possibly label the last 3 days of my life the most unproductive days I have ever lived.

But that might not be true, considering my summer days as a high schooler were spent either laying by a pool or watching TV.

But I was pretty lazy these past couple of days. I think I even lost a little coloring in my face, due to lack of contact with the sun.

Monday I had an excuse because I was sick.

By Tuesday mid-afternoon I was no longer sick – but I continued to live as if I was. (thank you all for your kind words by the way)

I finished my bag of Sour Patch Kids before the end of the day.

Wednesday Luke had to go back to work, but I was still at home so I decided to hang some pictures on the wall.

One wall and 20 holes later I didn’t have one picture hanging on my wall.

Apparently I have no idea how to hang pictures.

How the heck do you get those things straight?

I had one of those level things and everything.

When Luke got home I just pointed to the wall and said “I think I messed up” He truly let out one of the biggest laughs I have ever heard.

Our wall looks like somebody shot it with a nail gun.

Thank goodness it’s just an apartment wall.

And I don’t feel bad since their idea of a heater is something that BLOWS COLD AIR.

I have an unhealthy relationship with our heater and I am working on it.

So this morning I woke up and showered for the first time in a couple of days.

I have never been a big fan of showers, if one isn't required for the day I opt out. (this might be one of those things my mom tells me is TMI)

I was all geared up and ready to go back to work when I heard this news on the radio this morning:

Girl Scout cookies will now offer fewer cookies in a box due to high baking costs.”

Is there any point in continuing on with life? I live for those cookies.

Well yes, of course there is a point in living, but I am seriously sad about it, I can already put away a box of those things in about 20 minutes, now it will probably only take me 10.

So I am back at work and I must say it is nice to be back out in society.

I love my job and I am thankful that I don't have to hang pictures to earn a living.

Heather said...

I am SOO with you about "opting out" if there is a choice about the shower! Oh, preach it sister! And WHAT?!?!? about the cookies? What is the world coming to?

Girl scout cookies are my life. Ahhhhh.... :)

THE Stephanie said...

Seriously funny stuff. And the SPKs??? OMG. Love.Them. Even more than Girl Scout Cookies. :)

Glad you're feeling better!

Rachel H. said...

That is so sad about the Girl Scout cookies!! Terrible! And I can totally relate I hate taking a shower unless I have to! I know that it's something I have to do, but I hate having to get ready and taking all that time afterwards.

Trina said...

The nail gun bit was hilarious!

Girl if you are that thin and can get away with eating an entire bag of Sour Patch Kids and Girl Scout Cookies, I am so jealous.

Candice said...

Haha! I can only imagine what your wall looks like. You are so funny!

I just had my first Girl Scout Cookie a couple of weeks ago. I don't think I'm hooked yet, but I'm so sorry for your loss!!

Oh, and I left you another little something on my blog!

i heard about the reduced number of GS cookies on the radio...it is a sad sad day! and I have no idea how to hang a straight picture! neither does my husband!

Shannon said...

GS cookies - I heard about that on the news the other day. Makes me sad, but still, I ordered 10 boxes. Ha!!

Alex and Jill said...

I haven't seen one stinkin' girl scout anywhere. I want some. Even if there are only 5 in a box now.
I don't know if you've noticed, but the cheese dip at Chili's is smaller now. We asked why and the waiter told us, 'because of the cost of gas to get it there'. Good grief.

Have a happy day, girl! As always, love the post! :)

SassyEngineer said...

You crack me up! I'm sad about the cookies too, but I guess you won't feel so bad when you eat a whole box because there are less in there, right? Oh, and the picture hanging thing made me laugh! That sometimes happens to me, too.

Emily said...

you and me are soo much alike:)
I showered for the first time since monday last night:)
My husband said my skin smelled like it needed to be washed.. ha!
back to reality.. boo:)

Rebecca Jo said...

What a good husband you have - laughing at the wall? My husband gives me ONE SHOT to get it right when hanging a picture - makes me want to take the hammer to his face :-) (JOKING! - kinda!)

Sweet Simplicity said...

HAHA! My husband would have killed me for making all those holes. I'm glad Luke just laughed about it! We have a couple of boxes of girl scout cookies in our conference room. I already ate 5 (cookies, not boxes) this morning. I am trying my hardest to restrain from walking in there again--until this afternoon. :)

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Ha you make me laugh!! Is it sad that the main thing I got from this is the Girl Scout Cookies?? I heard about that yesterday and was SO sad!! I love thin mints and I can eat the whole box in minutes. Oh well, I guess this is good for my diet :)

The Mrs. said...

What? I ordered girl scout cookies this morning and the price was the same, so i assumed the quantity was, too! BOOOOOO!

Everybody is cutting back on quantity and jacking prices. Gotta love the economy!

I just moved in to my new office this week, so my job did entail hanging some pictures and hopefully some curtains by the end of the week!

Lindsey said...

Soooo sad to hear about the girl scout cookies!!!

Julie said...

Sorry you've been sick. Not a fun way to spend when you're not working.

I can't hang pictures either. I always get the engineer of the house.

And lastly, I LOVE sour patch kids!!! I could eat the whole package in almost one setting.

Lauren Kelly said...

So glad you are feeling better! I'm with you girl, I love girl scout cookies to, it's a sad, sad day in the girl scout world, haha!!! What were they thinking :)

valerie said...

Yum....the thin mint Girl Scout cookies are the best!

I'm home again today! I haven't been out of the house since Mon. afternoon. I have showered though. ;)

About my blog background....if I can do it, ANYONE can. I mean it. It wasn't hard except trying to find that one template. I just can't wait until my friend helps me get a cute header.

Be careful out there. Kristen said your parking lot is still pretty bad.

amy (metz) walker said...

Very funny post...GS cookie recession means things are really bad! Hope you feel completely better soon!

Juliane said...

Okay - you are seriously one of the funniest people I know. I can just read your blog for a little pick me up.
