A Woohoo moment, and a D’oh moment 6


The woohoo moment? I opened my email this morning and found a confirmation from Chapters telling me my order has been shipped. Which order is that? JR Ward’s latest, Phury’s story. Woohoo!!!! I should be getting it tomorrow or so – my Black Dagger Brotherhood fix is almost here!

The D’oh moment for today? Gizmo Guy usually goes to bed earlier than I do, so when I head to bed, I try not to disturb him; I creep into our pitch-black bedroom, and undress in total darkness. I have perfected determining whether whatever I’m putting on for the night is inside-out or backwards by feel. At some point in that routine I take off my glasses and put them on the night table beside my bed. By feel. Most times I manage to put them squarely in the middle, but occasionally I misjudge and they end up right on the edge and at some point during the night they slide off. So I get up this morning, and start looking for my glasses. Hmm, they’re not on the night table. Oh oh. I check the usual spots – the floor between the night table and my side of the bed. Behind the night table. In front of … well, you get the idea. No glasses. So I drag out a flashlight I keep in the drawer and get on my hands and knees, shining it under the bed, under the night table. No glasses.

Image from ImageChef.comOnce Gizmo Guy returns from the bathroom, I enlist Gizmo Guy’s help … who looks at me and tells me … Yup, you guessed it. I’m wearing them. I have no memory of putting them on. But the tip off should have been that I could actually see the floor instead of it all being a blur. So yeah, I had to chuckle and shake my head at my own … idiocy? Talk about one of those classic “you’re getting older” moments.

    That is exactly my routine at night -except for the nightie! LMAO. You needed to climb back into bed!

    BTW you’re tagged.

  • Leah Braemel

    Amy – yay! That means we can talk about it when we get to read it ahead of everyone else!

    Marley – in Canada, it’s too cold six months of the year not to have the nightie.

    Wylie – neener neener neener! Didn’t you learn last time?

    Julia – thank you! It makes me feel better to know I’m not the only one!

    Thank you for the link, Leah. At least now I don't feel like the Lone Ranger! Mini, of course, thinks I'm mildly insane – tearing the house apart looking for my glasses this morning. "But Mimi, they're on your face!" ~_~'
