A Week in the Life of.. You Might Need a “Drank” Edition

This week was pretty decent but for lack of better words I was just plain out ditzy. I’m not sure what was going on. But I found it to be rather hilarious.

The keyfob to unlock my door has been needing a new battery for quite some time. Well the other day the battery died and the doors wouldn’t unlock. I had a fit, started looking for the AAA card to have someone come unlock the door for me when I realized…uhhhh there is a key hole on the door that is used to manually stick the key in and turn. Gosh darnit and wouldn’t you know its main  purpose in life is to unlock the door. Technology has surely made the obvious invisible. 

 I go to Marshall’s and take the Mr.’s car. I come out out of the store and my heart starts racing. I’m looking up and down the parking lot, I’m walking around in circles in the middle of the street until it dawns on me that I didn’t drive my car, I drove his…and yes the children were with me.

I’m cooking a recipe and it called for 1/8 tsp of Nutmeg. Well I only had the 1/4 measuring spoon. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out if 1/8 was smaller or larger than 1/4… As I type this I still don’t know. But lets just say the dish seemed extra nutmeg”y”. For all intensive purposes fractions have never been my thing.

I went to wash my hair and couldn’t find the shampoo. Looked high and low, never washed my hair only to realize it was hiding between the shower curtain and the liner.

Having yet to learn my lesson, I go to the store without a list and purchase a third bottle of bleach.

In other news:

Baby starting standing this week. *wahhhhhhhhhhh* I don’t want her to grow up. However it is so much fun to see her discover new things…most of which go in her mouth.

I got some major things accomplished with Divinitee. I am still in major need of capital so I’mma get real creative. I’m about to sell all of this baby “stuff” around her and with the proceeds standing as business capital I hope to start a small amount of inventory. The response has been growing and although my initial plan was not to keep inventory it seems there is no way around it. Who needs an investor when you have a daycare center worth of baby swings, Bumbos, bouncey seats…..laying around.

The weather here has been the PITS. Raining and cold not to mention the hail and awful thunderstorms we had for like three days straight. AWFUL. Messed up my running schedule but I did manage to get in 3 days. I got my number to run in the annual Peachtree Road Race which will take place on July 4. I am one of 60K and nearly 2K were not taken..I feel speeeeecial about that. Now I really have good reason to get out and run. I start the Couch to 10K training program TODAY.

Enough of my madness. How was your week? Do share your ditzy moments from the past week…please!

    Everyone gets ditzy weeks. I know the car thing happens to me all the time. And I always buy more of one item because I think I need it. Congrats on your company look for grants that you can get for start up capital also their are small investors around that will give you money just to invest in your business. My friend found an investor for her new shop and they gave her a good bit of money to start off. Also don’t forget small business loans if you have good credit they will give you a loan. Well you made it through another week and thats all that matters.

    My week started out with the longest visit to my OB ever. We were there for three hours!!! Then Tuesday was a day of baby shopping. My lesson learned from our shopping adventure was to not get rid of baby stuff unless you have your tubes tied and are absolutely not having any more kids because we had to rebuy some stuff over. However, the highlight of shopping was finding a double stroller that didn’t break the bank. Wednesday and yesterday sucked because it’s been raining. Tired of this crazy weather!!

    LOL Girl, you had me laughing. I don’t know how many times I’ve lost the car, almost reported it stolen or something only to realize that I drove the hub’s truck. And my kids, although they are all teenagers, don’t even help a sista out.

    Congrats on being selected to run in the race. Y’all runners are making me feel lazy. 🙂

    See you don’t want your baby girl to grow up either! Lol

    I have a ditzy moment at least 2 times a week with my car keys. I sit them down in the backseat to put jas in her carseat and then I get in the drivers seat searching for those darn keys. I don’t know why I haven’t learned my lesson yet lol
