Some FML Moments of the Week


Since Jerry remains to be engaged on a particular undertaking at work (it is robust, however a terrific alternative for him–he’s having fun with it) I made a decision to not even ask him about writing his “deep ideas” put up in the present day. He likes writing these, however it often takes him endlessly as a result of he varieties with two fingers.

I keep in mind taking typing class within the seventh grade, and I am fairly quick at typing (on an precise keyboard–I am the slowest ever at typing on my cellphone!). Jerry mentioned they by no means had typing class at his college, so he by no means realized. Now, I am certain there are 1,000,000 applications on-line to assist train somebody to kind, however he would not care sufficient to do it 😉

Is typing class not a factor anymore? Like how faculties do not train cursive? (I attempted writing in cursive not too long ago and holy cow, it was so onerous! I hadn’t written in cursive since I used to be a minimum of in highschool, in all probability youthful.) Anyway…

I believed I would write just a few “humorous” issues that occurred this week. I put that in quotes as a result of on the time, a few of them weren’t so humorous for me! Sadly, I haven’t got pictures–if I would have identified I would giggle about these later, I would have taken photos. As an alternative, right here is an outdated photograph of a not-so-funny second that occurred a 12 months in the past. I used to be brushing my enamel within the automotive (which sounds bizarre, I do know; I will need to have been in a rush). It gave the impression of a good suggestion till I spotted I wanted to spit out the toothpaste after I was executed. There was no approach I used to be going to swallow it.

I opened my window (ensuring there wasn’t a automotive behind me) and spit onerous out the window. Then I bought house and noticed my automotive. BAHAHAHA. Evidently, I by no means tried that once more.

It was a lot more durable to get off than you’ll assume!

1) Yesterday morning, I woke as much as the noise of the rubbish truck on the road over from ours. Jerry often places the rubbish out to the curb however he was at work. I would utterly forgotten that I needed to do it. I used to be carrying a t-shirt and underwear (and naturally, no bra) however I jumped away from bed and ran towards the facet door.

For some motive on this specific week, our rubbish bin was ridiculously heavy. It had additionally rained and there have been little sticks right here and there as I ran in my naked toes, pulling the heaviest rubbish bin ever. As quickly as I bought to the curb, I might see that the neighbors’ trash had already been collected, so I would missed it! I needed to drag the rubbish again to the home. (I used to be curious if our safety cameras caught it as a result of I needed to indicate Jerry, however for some motive, it wasn’t picked up.)


2) Once I got here inside, I began the morning routine–let Joey outdoors to go to the lavatory, feed him breakfast, deliver peanuts out to the squirrel lunch field, and so on. I spotted Noah had forgotten to select up extra peanuts from the animal feed retailer (we purchase 50 kilos at a time–unroasted, unsalted, in-shell peanuts).

Effectively, when our home/cat sitter was right here whereas we have been up north, she’d run out of peanuts. I would meant to purchase extra earlier than we left and I completely forgot. Fortunately, I left her some more money in case she wanted it. Lengthy story quick, she’d requested her mother to purchase peanuts (only a small bag to carry them over till we bought house), and her mother purchased peanuts which can be meant for birds (principally they’re unsalted, chopped nuts).

Our sitter then purchased the common form, so the bag of chopped nuts was nonetheless within the pantry. (I am attending to the purpose, I promise.) Once I realized Noah had forgotten to purchase peanuts, I figured I would have to make use of the chopped ones till the feed retailer opened. The bag was in all probability concerning the dimension of a regular paper grocery bag (besides it was plastic). I lower open the highest and went outdoors to fill the lunch field.

I used to be struggling to carry the lid of the field open and pour the chopped nuts inside–they have been barely sprinkling out–and then impulsively, 3/4 of the bag simply whooshed proper out, lacking the within of the field, and flying all over the place. I had been awake all of 10 minutes at that time and simply threw my palms up in defeat.


3) A short time later, I used to be cleansing up the home and I went to go put a guide on the highest shelf in my closet. I would not too long ago hung up two of these tall material dividers (I feel they’re meant for shoes–there are six compartments, one on high of the opposite, and the entire thing simply hangs up.) I used to be utilizing them for my denims (I’ve approach too many denims, and I am certain the burden was far an excessive amount of for the rack that I would held on the wall.) I would screwed the rack into the stud on one facet and I used anchors within the drywall on the opposite facet.

I barely touched it whereas I jumped as much as put the guide on the highest shelf subsequent to it, and out of the blue, the anchors tore proper out of the drywall and your entire rack fell, even breaking the braces that had been connected to the stud. I used to be left with two giant holes within the wall and 1,000,000 pairs of denims with nowhere to place them. I then spent a few hours reorganizing the clothes on my cabinets to attempt to match the denims.


4) I would been making an attempt to give you an answer to retailer all of my craft stuff–I positively want a complete room for it, however since we do not have a spare room, I considered different options. I made a decision to color a big cupboard that I would purchased a very long time in the past on Fb Market (with the intention of refinishing it). I ended up utilizing it for instruments as an alternative and it was within the storage.

It appeared excellent for my craft stuff and after determining the place to place it in the home, I eliminated the instruments and I bought it set as much as paint contained in the storage. There’s a LOT of {hardware} on it (10,000 tiny screws, 2 million hinges, drawer pulls, and so on.). I used a bit plastic field with dividers (type of like a sort out field) to separate the elements as I took them off. I figured it will be a lot simpler to place them again on later.

I spent a number of hours prepping the cupboard (eradicating {hardware}, washing your entire factor with TSP, priming, and even placing the primary coat of paint on a few of the items. I used to be exhausted and able to go inside, so I put the paint away to make use of the subsequent day.

As I used to be strolling out of the storage, I completely caught the facet of that little field of {hardware} with my foot and punted it throughout the room. The items went EVERYWHERE. A lot for making it simple to place again collectively! (I have never gotten to that time but, so let’s hope I’ve all of the items.)


5) One of many blinds in our front room was driving me loopy as a result of the little plastic stick that you just twist to open and shut the blinds broke off. It did not simply come unhooked; the piece holding it in truly broke. After a few days couple of months of standing on the sofa to succeed in to the highest and twist a bit nub so as to shut the blinds, I made a decision I’d lastly take the 2 minutes wanted to simply superglue the rattling factor again collectively.

The superglue labored great–so nice, actually, that I spotted I would truly glued it within the unsuitable spot and it utterly stopped turning altogether. Which meant the blinds have been caught within the open place. I could not consider I made such a silly mistake!

Fortunately, I had two spare blinds within the storage from when Jerry and I reworked the bed room. We purchased totally different blinds for the bed room, however I saved the outdated ones for no matter motive. So, I grabbed a kind of and changed your entire thing–all as a result of I superglued the plastic stick within the unsuitable spot.


And at last, for the sprinkles on the icing on the crappy cake of the week…

6) I opened one thing that I would ordered on Amazon–I do not keep in mind what it was–but the handbook for it was inside a plastic bag and held in place with a lot of packing tape. To get the handbook, I needed to simply pull the tape off of the bag. Effectively, the genius that packaged it additionally taped two of these little silica gel packets (you realize, those that say “DO NOT EAT”) in simply the fitting spot–when I attempted to softly pull off the tape, the packets tore open and the silica gel balls flew all around the front room.

This attracted the cats, so I used to be making an attempt to yell at them to get away whereas I rushed to wash them up–I used to be apprehensive to go away and seize the vacuum as a result of then the cats would absolutely eat them (or Duck would, a minimum of). When eaten, they will trigger intestinal blockage–and everyone knows how costly that surgical procedure is, do not we, Duckling? 😉


So, it has been fairly the “C’MON! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” type of week. A number of classes have been realized the onerous approach, hahaha.
