"Blonde" moment
« on: August 23, 2006, 10:01:43 PM »
You know how some people have blonde moments(no offensive to blondes). Well I had a blonde day!

The exterminator came this morning. I left all the lights on in the basement so she could see what she was doing. We have a family room, a bedroom, utility room, and another big room where we have a big freezer and store things.

I went upstairs and waited for her to arrive. She arrived and headed off to do her spraying. She done the basement first then the rest of the house.

I went downstairs and all the lights were off. I went in the family room and pulled the chains on the ceiling fans and no lights. Went in the bedroom..no lights. Had power to everything else except the overhead lights.

I checked the fuse box..flipped switches and nothing. Hubby came home and I told him. He went to Lowe's and bought a new thingy for the breaker box. Put it on...nothing..no lights.

Told me to call the electrician tomorrow.

My sis calls. I tell her about it. She said isn't there a switch on the wall that controls the lights. I go over and flip the light switch on.....WE HAVE LIGHTS!

Hubby is aggravated because "I" didn't think to flip on the light switch. I reminded him that "HE" didn't think of it either.

Thank heavens my sis called tonite. I would have have felt so stupid writting that check for the electrician!

Arent you glad you solved the problem BEFORE the electrician? Seriously.

Okay, I'll top that.

Last month, I came home, and as usual, emptied my pockets, in which is my cellphone. I take the cellphone and make a call. I'm talking. Then, while doing that, I'm looking at the dresser upon which I lay the stuff from my pockets--and I can't find my cell phone. I pat down my pants pockets--not there. I walk into the kitchen and look around the counters. Finally, I am about to say to the person on the phone that I can't find my cell phone--then realize where the phone is.

My partner called a repairman because our dishwasher had stopped working. The guy pressed the start button, flipped what looked like a light switch on the wall above the dishwasher, pressed the start button again and as the dishwasher started held out his hand and said "That will be $60". We felt like such idiots but neither of us knew that in newer homes it is code that the dishwasher is on a wall switch.

                I call mine "senior moments" having reached the ripe old age of 50.  I dare say your hubby has them blond moments too. ::)  Glad you shared this with us....  Nice to know I'm in good company :-*

Because I have had a week of blonde moments.

Friday, some idiot at work kept grabbing my blackberry.  So I put a password on it.  HAHA show you Mister.
1.  Oops, I typed it wrong.  Blackberry info deleted.
2.  No worries have it sync'd with Outlook.  Oops blackberry overwrites and deleted 200 contacts in Outlook.
3.  Found contact list in deleted files of outlook, tried to move them...oops deleted then too.

3 tries to fix it and I blew it each time.  Found an old backup, from Oct 2005.  Great.  Ok, anyone who met me since then...I lost your numbers. 

Note to self, write on PAPER.

So you didn't remember the wall switch... both of you!   ;D

When I have these moments, I claim to have Somtimers... some times I remember, sometimes I don't.   :)

Bought a cheap laptop last year. Tried for days to get the wireless internet to work -- read through the manual, called the ISP guys, asked friends. Took it back in desperation to the store where I bought it. The clerk pressed the wireless networking button -- voila, I was connected. The clerk was very nice about it, "Don't worry, this sort of stuff happens all the time" but I felt very foolish all the same.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.
