in quotes.

My week.
Here are a few of my favorite moments. Please note subtle sarcasm.

Tuesday at Work
On the phone
Me, "Hi, we're planning an Easter sunrise service and I just wanted to confirm...oops! I called the wrong people. Sorry!"
quickly hang-up phone
Daynes, "Who'd you call?"
Me, "The cremator"

Thursday Night, 2/24
At the gym at approximately 9:00 p.m. at night; I go running to the worker and say:
"Ohmygosh I've been so busy today that I forgot to go online and cancel this Amazon thing and if I don't I'm going to be charged and I don't really need that and is there any computer here with internet that I can use to get one really quick before I forget?"
Gym guy-"Um, yeah sure."

Friday Afternoon
While making small talk at work:
Me, "Yeah, I'm going to have my directory picture taken today.
Coworker, "Why didn't you dress-up?"
Me, "I thought I did."

Saturday Afternoon
Me, "&*!%" when I hit the emergency stop button on the treadmill at the 20 minute mark at a running pace and consequently slammed into the machine.

Saturday Evening
Miss Epic pageant.
When a student band came onto the stage and said, "for our first song," my friend (who asked me to go with her because she was supporting someone in it and needed somebody to record it) and I simultaneously looked at one another and whispered incredulously, "first?!"

Sunday Morning
Customer service rep Jordan-"Thank you for calling Amazon, how can I help you this morning?"
Me-"Hi, I'm an idiot. I thought I cancelled my prime membership but I just found out that I did not and I don't buy that many books online and I really don't need it and again I thought I cancelled it but I didn't and I'm now charged for something I'm not going to use and"
Customer service rep Jordan-"Ma'am we can get your money refunded."
Me-"THANK YOU so much!"

10-minutes later Sunday Morning
I open up iCal to add a few things to my do list and discover I've missed a few birthdays:
Me, "darn-it." But the stronger version.

And a few for real favorite moments...
A program at work is over. A Treasure Hunt. Knocking two items off my "things I don't want to do but I have to do" list. Precious family. Community Group. Good runs. Board games and trampoline time with some of my favorite children I babysit for. Sweet friends. Writing a training guide for a new girl at work (which means a new person is coming IN at work which gets me one step closer to getting into my new job). Wednesday Night Prayer.
And a 74 degree Sunday with a borrowed camera lens and no obligations until 4:45 p.m.

  1. HAHAHA, love these quotes. Especially any that are gym-related. Maybe we should start a support group for People Who SHOULD NOT Go To The Gym But Do Anyway.
