Less-Than-Graceful Moments!

Less Than Graceful Monday

Happy Labor Day to you from me and this scantily dress friend of mine! I hope you took this holiday opportunity to skip showering and dressing yourself. Labor Day is for waking up late, neglecting to change out of your pajamas, and eating a whole lot of frozen pizza. Of course, if you were forced to work today, I hope that you treat yourself to at least two donuts on your way home. No matter the time of day. You obviously deserve at least two {frosted and sprinkled} donuts.

Our weekend has been busy! There’s been work and research, shopping and birthday celebrations, and I bought two sticks of deodorant for the price of one {thanks Target}, so life’s been good over here. I’m hoping to clean our apartment today {there may or may not be at least 8 DVD cases scattered in front of our television cabinet…}, but that’s already starting to sound like a little too much labor for this girl. I wouldn’t want to ruin the holiday or anything. πŸ˜‰

Anyways, here are a few less-than-graceful moments from the past week!

  1. Whoever thought that it’d be a good idea to have one, single, skinny bathroom mirror that ran horizontally above all the restroom sinks apparently didn’tΒ account for women shorter than 5’5. While the women on either side ofΒ me applied their lipstick or fixed their hair, I had aΒ greatΒ time staring at my forehead while I washed my hands.Β There’s nothing like a mirror placed at “average height” to remind me of my lack thereof.
  2. Darrin and I {or maybe just me} neglected to go grocery shopping last week because, well,Β grocery shoppingΒ {ugh}, so we decided to order Chinese food and end our week watching episodes of The Big Bang Theory. An hour and a half later, our order finally arrived, and I wasΒ so hungryΒ that IΒ practically inhaledΒ my meal. This, of course, made me incredibly sick. The if-I-move-one-muscle-I-may-just-hurl-all-over-our-couch kind of sick. And I most definitely regretted our decision to have overpriced Chinese food for dinner. Let this be a warning to everyone who avoids going grocery shopping…
  3. You know that you watch too many crime shows when you assume that the necklace your sweet husband left for you on your desk is actually a creepy gift left by someone who has been following you for weeks and broke into your apartment just to leave you aΒ present. I sent messages to both of my sisters and to Darrin, telling them that somebody broke into our home and left me a creepy gift…Darrin responded, “The necklace was from me…I thought you’d like it…”…….sorry Darebear. No more CSI and Criminal Minds for this girl.
  4. My bathroom stall door popped open twice while I was taking care of business. TWICE. The world is filled with scientists and engineers building robots and skyscrapers, but apparently the mechanics behind the bathroom stall door has yet to be mastered.

Make sure you check out a few of my favorite Labor Day Sales that end today! The best kind of shopping, according to Darrin, is shopping that can be done from your computer while you sit in your pajamas watching Batman cartoons and drinking Mountain Dew. So if you’re a fan of discounts, pajamas, and lounging on your living room couch, then celebrate this Labor Day with a little online shopping. πŸ˜‰

Happy Monday!
