Humpday Things...

This week is another week where I just can't keep up with what day it currently is. Yesterday felt like Friday to me - thankfully Friday is my EDO so I only have a 4 day workweek this week (hallelujah). After an 11 hour day yesterday because of meetings I am soooo ready for that earned day off. With my EDO coming up I have a three day weekend to look forward to and I'm really hoping I can finally cross everything off of my to do list so I can relax next weekend and not feel anxious that there's something that I should be doing. 

I had started this post last Thursday, planning for it to be a Five on Friday post, but since I never got around to finishing it I decided it would just be a brain dump of random things. You're welcome. 

ONE I found out (via Kallie's IG story last week) that I can watch episodes of Unsolved Mysteries now that I have (US) Amazon Prime and I am soooo excited! I've said for years that if the series ever came out on DVD I'd be first in line to purchase it. One of my favourite memories from my childhood is watching episodes of Unsolved Mysteries with my Mom. Mama Bear loves herself some true crime shows but Unsolved Mysteries is the only one I've ever gotten invested in. I can't wait to head to Minnesota in a few weeks and binge watch it (silly location restrictions keeping me from watching it now). 

TWO I've made $185 so far in January just from selling things I no longer use/have a need for on Facebook garage sale groups. If everything that I currently have on there would sell I would make an additional $412. And that's with some items still waiting to be posted! I just wish everything would sell as soon as I post them so I could finally get rid of all the stuff that's just sitting in one of the spare bedrooms. One of my goals for this year is to stay organized and make mindful purchases! 

THREE I purchased Pretty Baby at Wal-Mart last week and I can't wait to start reading it. They had it in the mass-market paperback version which isn't my favourite but is waaaay cheaper than most of the books I buy so I can't complain. I didn't even know this book existed until I was writing my 2017 Books post. She wrote my second favourite book of 2017 so I have high hopes for it.  I *think* I'm going to make myself wait to read it though so I have something to read on the train in a few weeks. 

FOUR Laura posted about this sheet pan dinner last week and I cannot wait to try it. I went to the grocery store the other day and *thought* that I bought all the ingredients... but I forgot the lemons soooo now I have to get back to the grocery store for lemons so I can finally try it. The grocery store (my hometown one anyways) is my least favourite place on earth so it might be awhile before I make it back there.

FIVE MN is a huge Vikings fan. Like, HUGE. We have the CFL in Canada (Go Riders!) so I never really paid any attention to the NFL before I met him.  However, I have said for years (waaay before I met MN) that if I were to choose an NFL team as 'my' team I would pick the Vikings - simply because they were Marshall Eriksen's team and HIMYM is my fav. Since we've been dating I've been 'forced' to watch some games and even though I wasn't with MN on Sunday I still watched the game, because they are now 'my' team more so than before because of MN's devotion to them (the Riders will still always be number one to me though...). Close to the end of the fourth quarter I was preparing myself for a very upset boyfriend. So imagine my surprise when the Vikings won the game with 10 seconds left. I think I was in shock for a good minute afterwards! I was excited for the outcome, don't get me wrong, but I think I was happiest that I wouldn't have a grumpy boyfriend -  I can't be the only one that ever feels this way (right?!). 

SIX I still have all of my Christmas decor up. I helped my Mom take her tree down on Saturday and that was sad enough for me, so I think my decor will stay up at least another few weeks. Last year I'm pretty sure it all came down just in time for Valentine's Day...

SEVEN Last March I had to pay over $500 for a part for my drivers side window so that it would roll up. So you can imagine how pissed I am that when I went to roll my window back up after going through the border a couple weeks ago that it wouldn't go back up. In -40 weather. I had to pull over on the side of the road and push it up with my hand - thank god that worked! So now I have to make a very angry phone call to my dealership to make an appointment to get this fixed because I did not pay $500 for it not to work. Adulting really sucks sometimes.

Happy Humpday!

  1. I understand the angst over the windows. 3 of the windows and the sun roof on my old car broke. It sucks when it's too cold (or hot) for you to not fix.
