As of riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight now…no, wait…NOW!
I am a FREEEEEEEEEE woman!
I have just finished working 3,180 minutes in the last five days. For all you mathematically challenged folks out there, that would be 53 hours. I have the next four and a HALF days off and I have absolutely nothing to do…no plans, no chores, NOTHING!
Now normally, working 10-11 hour shifts five days in a row would leave me with a mountain of laundry, dirty dishes, and an empty fridge, but not this time! While my fridge may still be more populated by condiments (and wine) than actual FOOD, you and I both know I could live for years out of my pantry…and really, I’ve been living off of cereal lately anyhow. But no, what I’m really yammering on about is the fact that I was able to knock out ALL of my chores, hit up TWO grocery stores, ran to Target, bought a step-ladder, found a dead mouse, AND still managed to get a solid EIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP every
Oh wait, what was that about the dead mouse…? 😯
Long story short, many many months ago, the light in my pantry quit working. It’s the kind of attic-type light with a pulley down chain thingy (I told you to call me Super Woman, not an electrician). It felt like something was wrong/caught in the chain, but since I still have no kitchen table (with chairs that I could climb up on), I had no way to get up there. So I came home the other day with my little step-ladder ready to do a little DIY-ing…
I removed the bulb, unscrewed the fixture from the ceiling, and reached up
WITH MY BARE HANDS to find…
Remember when I had problems with mice last winter? Well, after I had the pest control people come out, I haven’t had any problems. I guess this poor little loser got lost on the way out…and got electrocuted in the process. 😯
Now, while I’d LOVE to say I put on my big girl pants and did what needed to be done, in actuality, I screamed a lot, washed my hands five times, ran around the house repeating, “oh ma god, oh ma god, oh ma gahhhhhhhd!” Then I proceeded to Snapchat it to everyone I know, call my dad, and whine/text to my sister…who I will confess actually had to be the one to get rid of the little vermin.
But back to MY super human abilities! Because while Tori does deserve a medal for sister of the year, I’d like to see her…
Wash AND FOLD two never-ending loads of laundry.
Empty the dishwasher AND reload it.
Sweep the kitchen.
Clean the ENTIRE bathroom including the shower of doom.
And STILL have time to…
Spend 15 minutes picking out one freakin’ carton of milk…
For an experiment that will later be revealed.
Hunt down ALL THE FALL THINGS at Target
And collect eight cans of her favorite Pringles all for a BUCKeach.
While also catching up on emails.
Responding to blog comments from the last 3 weeks (whoops!).
Painting her nails.
AND scheduling a massage for this coming Saturday!
And that, my friends, is why I get the cape! 😀
But I could never claim to conquer all my feats with a scrub brush and a debit card alone. Oh no…I have to take a minute to thank my faithful sidekicks…
Who have asked to be referred to as the Pink Ladies!
In yo’ FACE, insomnia!
And now, to enjoy my four and a half day weekend! 😀
What has been your super power this week?
If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?
Wait…are you a surgeon?
Also, I always tend to go for the milks on sale. 🙂
Haha, no! I’m a CT technologist. We just sometimes have to gown up for some of our patients…in this case, I was just being silly! 😉
ALL THAT MILK??!! I would be SO overwhelmed!! I remember when I was in a Stop and Go in Boston and walked through an aisle with ONLY oats. Considering that we have TWO versions of oats (white and wholegrain), I was in shock. I took about 76 pictures of this wall of oatmeal fame.
My Superpower currently are 2 jobs! I picked up the position of the Social Media/PR-chick at my CrossFit box besides my real job. I went with them to a competition all last weekend and this weekend I am hosting an event for my real job. And I blog, and I absolve my CrossFit workouts and I comment on other blogs and I never reply to my comments, aaaah! Need to catch up! Also, my IG account is kind of dead. Ugh.
Oh honey! You DO have your hands full! Don’t feel bad…here I am AGAIN two weeks late on responding to comments! Man, time really does fly ya know!
I don’t generally have a problem with mice, but that’s when they’re ALIVE. If I was tasked with the removal of a dead one, you better believe I’d be screaming like a little girl. Euuugh. Major props on that one, lady. And my superpower of choice would definitely be teleportation. That way I could visit all my favourite people, avoid traffic, travel anywhere I wanted, and still be able to come home and sleep in my own bed at night 😉
“And sleep in my own bed at night” <- I like the way you think woman! If you ever stumble upon those powers, you better come and see me first! 😉
Oh goshhhhhh, here I was thinking I was a badass killing a spider last week! haha. Enjoy your days off, girl — sounds like you deserve them! 🙂
I showed your snap to steve as soon as you sent it! ewwwwwwww!!!
And you have no idea how happy I was to get blog comments from you. Love you! Enjoy your time off! I’m off to a NEW yoga class and scared as heayalllllll
Oh my Goodness that mouse story! Ha! Reminded me of one of my apartments when I was at university, we caught a mouse in the trap and my roommate just put a bowl of top of it and left it there for days as she couldn’t bear to get rid of it. Super Jen to the rescue!
My superpower for this week so far though has to be everything I am doing at CrossFit, jeez I feel like I need a cape to get me through some of the heavy WOD’s at the moment! 🙂
Dannnng girl!! So jealous of all your accomplished tasks. Although- not the mouse one!! lol I woulda been running and screaming too! Have a great 4 1/2 days!!!
I’ll take your mouse and raise you cockroaches, centipedes and small lizards in my house…such is life in Southeast Asia! I’d like to say I freak out slightly less about those kinds of things now but that’s not really true.
Enjoy your week off- you definitely deserve it! 🙂
Oh ma GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWD!!! I would have a heart attack! 😯
omg.. i would have died. literally. you are super woman! Now, we need your super powers for us to schedule a meet up… mkay?
I know! If it makes you feel any better, I just saw my mama this weekend…after TWO MONTHS! And we live 20 minutes apart! 😯
Four days with nothing to do. That sounds like sweet, sweet bliss. Enjoy it my friend, and think of me, toiling away at work. 🙂 You deserve it.
P.S. Eat a pringle for me, and I do mean a can.
Wow how did you squeeze in so much while still working 53 hours? Give me your secrets woman!
Also, eww about the dead mouse! I found a dead one on my driveway a few months ago and gave it a funeral in my backyard lol.
Enjoy your 4.5 day weekend!
Actually, when I look back, I have NO FRIGGIN’ CLUE! Lol! Aww, you’re such a better person than me…I opted out of a funeral procession and just had my sister throw him in the back of the backyard! 😯
Geebuz you need to tell me your methods, buddy- epic doesn’t even describe it.
I’m in shock at the various types of almond milk and the PRICE!!!! Here…let’s not start. Keen to hear about this experiment you have going on…is the kitchen princess back? As for the mouse, you should have made jerky.
Mouse jerky?! Ewwwww! Hahaha! No, actually, I’m experimenting with trying to reverse my lactose intolerance. I figured I developed it somewhere over the last few years after I started drinking almond milk, maybe I can ween myself back on the real deal!
