Stupid Stuff #1 - Snow. After a 70-degree Friday and 60-degree Saturday, I woke up this morning and looked out the window, only to find a few of inches of snow on the ground. I thought Mother Nature was over this kind of behavior for the season.
Stupid Stuff #2 - This check, received from AT&T on Saturday, whose services we haven't used for about three years. It's for some kind of surcharge refund. I'm sure they had to send it to us by law, but it literally isn't worth the (amount of) paper it's printed on, especially after they tacked on postage to send it. Would I drive to the bank to cash it? Of course not. Will I give it Shane to deposit with his paycheck on Friday? Probably...just for a laugh. Or I may just toss it. Wouldn't it be fun to know that AT&T's bank account was off by 3¢ from now on?
Stupid Stuff #3 - Gravity. I was with Kat at the park on Saturday and was sitting on the seat portion of a picnic table. I was sitting sideways, with my side toward the table and my back toward the end of the bench. It was a little chilly, so I was sliding backward to find a nice slice of sunshine and slid myself off the end of the seat. My inner dialog went something like this:
"OMG, don't fall. You're going to look stupid and everyone will see you."
"Geez, it seems like I've been backpedaling forever. How long is this going to take?"
"Oh, for goodness sake! Isn't it obvious by now that you aren't going to "spring forward" far enough to regain your balance? Just freakin' fall already."
So I did. And oddly enough, only one person saw me. I still felt really stupid, until I looked at the picnic table. The seat portion was a good 8-10 inches shorter than the table on each end. No wonder my elbow was still on solid ground while my booty was hanging in the air.
And yes I do have butt abrasions. Thanks for asking.
The rest of my weekend went better. We got a few things marked off our to-do list, watched a movie or two, ate some pretty good food, and just chilled.
The week ahead looks pretty full. Kat is on spring break all week, so we're looking for something fun to do at least one day this week. I'm thinking PowerPlay, but I'm not sure yet. Shane may have jury duty this week; it's one of those call-in-every-evening-to-find out scenarios. No jury duty today, but also no work today because of the snow.
What's going on in your world this week?
