What a week...

...I'm exhausted, seriously just tired and stressed! Work has been crazy...When my dad asks what my dream job is, I always tell him, something where I don't have responsibility and don't have to supervise anyone. He responds with, Lyss, that's everyone's dream job. Then everyone with my sorority daughter...I know if I'm exhausted just picture her...then here's the real kicker.

DISCLAIMER: I know nothing at all about anything mechanical. So Wednesday afternoon, I open the deep freeze and I notice the light's not on. So I unscrew the lightbulb and shake it...nope, no noise, must be good. Matt doesn't get home until about 10pm that night and I ask him to look at it. He "says" he looked and it was fine and working. I get up Thursday morning, check on it again and its still cold and Matt said it was fine so okay. I go to Home Depot to get a new bulb, the clerk and the new bulb confirmed that the old one is NOT broken. GRRRReat...I get home about 11:30am, deep freeze thawed, water everywhere...awesome!!! So I call his sister and meet her over lunch to give her the deer meat we'd been freezing then I come up and start with the mess. We ended up having to throw about half of the stuff away and I was afraid we might be celebrating our six months and so-many days anniversary with our wedding cake but it was saved along with all the good meat. You just have to be careful when you open the teeny, tiny freezer upstairs.

Turns out the deep freeze is fine...the outlet was bad! So Matt and I get the deep freeze up and working and start cleaning it out. Me, being the super intelligent person that I am, decide to put the light bulb back in only to SHOCK myself...yes, shock. I think with everything going on this week PLUS it really, REALLY scared me, I just broke out in tears and ran upstairs. Does my loving husband come check on me? Nah...so 15 minutes later when he comes upstairs THEN goes to the bathroom THEN comes to check on me, I tried to act like I was passed out...didn't work so well because I can't keep a straight face. This just goes to show that even when I don't know what I'm talking about, he should still listen to me!!! So now that I got to sit down for like 10 minutes, I am about to go get ready and head to Jeff City for the memorial tonight then head back and I'm TOTALLY sleeping in tomorrow! Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Our freezer is so stuffed I think I would cry if that happened! Good news that is doesn't have to be replaced. Have a good weekend.

Holy crap! What a week! You need a spa day...or maybe a whole vacation. Glad you (and the deer meat and wedding cake) made it out okay!

I am so sorry! Just when you think you've had enough..... I would have cried too. And punched my hubby. Violence makes me feel better. :) I hope you have a better weekend.
