Note to Self: Stop Doing Anything
So, I spent hours trying to clean my laptop only to discover upon rebooting that I can no longer log in to XP. At. All. No Normal mode, not even any type of Safe mode. I was super excited about this revelation. In fact, I was so happy I almost started crying right there. Ahhh but everything is ok. Sort of. I used another computer to try and find a solution to this problem and found that this has happened to numerous people before me and there are fixes out there. If only I could find that XP cd... Recovery Console - Here I come!
On to the evening. I was opening a package of ridiculously bright eyeshadow for Lauren to play with. I used scissors to cut open the plastic packaging and when I tried to put them away, I managed to stick my middle right finger between the blades and snip! Yeah, felt awesome. Good thing we have a large stock of bandaids...
So I decided to do something a bit more domestic and clean out our deacons bench where all the hats, mitts and scarves are. Damn there is a lot of stuff crammed into that tiny little box. So I'm sorting away and I happen across this little Ariel figurine. I toss it on the floor and keep on organizing my bench. Lauren called me over to help her with something and don't I step on that damn Ariel figurine and do a face plant right on the floor between Lauren's chair and the rocking chair. I'm talking full on limbs-flailing-not-sure-if-you're-gonna-fall-but-then-yup-you-fell type of eating dirt. At least I didn't break a bone and Jon wasn't home so he couldn't laugh at my dumb ass.
I was going to go to the gym but thought today would probably be the day that I get distracted and fly off the treadmill. I was also going to go to Erica's but driving seemed a bit too risky what with the other people on the road.
So I decided that I should just stop doing anything and plunk myself on the nice cushy couch where it was safe.
