Do you ever have those "Oooh! I'm an idiot!" moments?
In the past 2 weeks I've had several.
The first is when hubby & I submitted our tax filing stuff to our accountant... I forgot almost $700 in medical expenses and a charitable donation receipt for $50....I remembered them a few days later so we called him and dropped them off. Crisis averted. No joke, the next day I decided to re-organize our financial documents so this wouldn't happen again and lo and behold, don't I find a dental receipt for for over $300!! I guess we'll have to see about adding it in next year.
Next, remember not to long ago I bought new shoes? I wear them to work often and with this winter weather I've just been leaving them at work while coming and going in my winter boots. The other day I decided to bring them home, along with a few other personal items so I just put everything in a generic plastic bag.
Fast forward to 2 days later and I'm rushing to get to work, running late and I can't find my shoes! I go to put on my flats instead but there are no footbeds in them as I've ripped them out to make room for my orthotic insoles....and I can't find the insoles because they are in my missing shoes! Fast forward another 2 days and I still can't find my shoes! Can you guess where I found them? No, of course not. Because there is no logical way to figure out where I put these shoes...normal people do not do things like this!
I found them in the garbage! In a cleaning spurt I grabbed what I thought where a few bags of garbage hubby brought in from the car and threw them in a big garbage bag! How did I discover this? I kept walking by the garbage bag and noticing it, like really noticing it. I thought to myself...is it possible? When I opened the garbage bag there was the bag the shoes were in right on top! In the little bag with the shoes was a crumpled McDonald's bag containing half a muffin (from the day I brought home the shoes). I must have seen the crumpled bag and thought the whole bag contained garbage!
And now, my epic fail. As you may have read a few weeks ago I was under the weather. In my congested misery I took the advice of a friend and bought a saline and aloe spray to help clear my nasal passages. It did help a little.
Yesterday I was feeling a little stuffy and thought "Hey, I should use that spray again".
Insert Epic Fail Here.
I think I re-infected myself with the stupid cold!!!
This morning I was tired and stuffy, my eyes watered and my nose was congested and I was sneezing more than usual. I am often stuff in the morning and put if off to allergies or the wood stove being too smokey...by 3pm at work I was miserable! My face is in that perma-squint of about to sneeze, my eyes keep running like I'm crying, I'm multi-sneezing, my nose is running....I'm a mess.
So, make me feel better....got any "I'm an Idiot" or "Epic Fail" stories?
