In the last hour I've....

  • Took two loads of laundry over to my moms. (my dryer is still broken)
  • Picked up some green beans and pressure cooker from my moms.
  • Took the vacuum apart to see if it needed a new belt. (It did. Thankfully I had an extra one on hand.)
  • Took the vacuum bottom off and changed the vacuum belt.
  • Proceeded to vacuum the downstairs living room.
  • Moved computer cord out of the way so that the vacuum wouldn't suck it up.
  • Watched as the vacuum sucked up a corner of a blanket instead.
  • Saw smoke coming from the vacuum.
  • Turned it off as fast as I could. (I was too late)
  • Took the bottom off of the vacuum to remove new broken belt.
  • Drove to the local hardware store in hopes that they would have the vacuum belt. (I like to shop in town and support the little guy when I can)
  • Broke my flip flop as I was walking into said hardware store.
  • Picked up my flip flop and walked with as much dignity as one can wearing only one flip flop into said hardware store.
  • Looked for the correct belt. (they did not have it)
  • Walked back out of the store and through the parking lot with as much dignity as one can wearing only one flip flop .
  • Drove home
  • Blogged it.

Here I am, imagining you walking with dignity and your head held high while only wearing one flip flop. Priceless!

Christa said...

Of course you blogged it. I would have done the same thing.

Olivia Carter said...

Oh gosh, I totally sympathize with moments like this. REALLY! At least you got it all done in an hour.

Brooke said...

You're amazing. That's a lot to do in one hour!

Vanessa said...

You have been busy.

Emmy said...

I've broken a flip flop like that to, it is the worst. And I so would have blogged about it if that all happened to me.
Hopefully tomorrow things work out a little more for you.

I know that dignified walk must have been extra hard because, if you were at Ace Allred's like I pictured, you'd probably see at least two people you knew. That's at the very least.

Anyway, you did all that in one hour?!

Funky Kim said...

Now that's a sign that you shouldn't vacuum.

susette said...

Oh wow! Do you make dilly beans in the pressure cooker? My momma does and my kids eat them everytime they go over there. Personally, I can't eat them. You've had a very busy hour indeed. I hope you have a better evening.

Now, if you would have just cracked the whip on one of those little people living in your house, you could have simply WATCHED all of that happen...

Oh, you're good.

I have sat here and sipped a soda.

Rachel Sue said...

An hour like that deserves nothing less than the honor of becoming blog fodder. . .

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

It would have taken me WAY more than an hour to do all that. Good job!

tammy said...

Just when you thought you had nothing to blog about.

AS Amber said...

And you thought you wouldn't be busy once the kids went back to school...

Nick and Emily said...

i don't know how you could've gotten all that done in one hour but i'm pretty impressed. you should hold your head up high with dignity, broken flip flop and all.

Bonnie the Boss said...
