That slippery slope.

I have reached a new low.  Not only did I forget to brush my teeth this morning (TMI??), but I am sitting at my desk in the office in my .... slippers.


Sigh.


Just sent a text to my middle sister, alerting her that she had better brace for the future.  Let's hope it's not the near future.


SIGH.


Longer post with pictures coming.  We managed to not blow away on Monday, although the pine trees in my little forest took on a domino effect.  No sheep blew by my front window.  The quail survived, yet again, but are actively petitioning their hatchery in California to be rescued from their daily dose of Fresh Hell.  I hope they take me with them.

  1. Oh, dear. Need we readers band together and hire a personal assistant for you? A full-time, live-in companion? A hand maiden? You made me laugh out loud.

    I, too, have left home on at least one occasion (or two) before realizing I hadn't brushed my toofies. Also got halfway to town once with my inside slippers on. The lack of applied toothpaste was remedied with a Mento, but I turned around to go back home to put on appropriate footwear. (Do you think your middle sister would be able to take care of both of us? You and I could entertain each other while she took short breaks.)

  2. I'm sure Connie wouldn't mind at all - as long as her short breaks involved adult beverages... I've made it to my car in my slippers, but never all the way to the office! No wonder my feet were so comfortable. Pfft.

  3. bricks blew off of my neighbors house into my driveway. i might point out that, though the wind was very strong, i could probably blow them off myself.

  4. I take it that your neighbor does not put 'house maintenance' high on his/her/their list?

  8. I did that once, in the dark ages when I was gainfully employed. I picked the brown and the blue of an otherwise identical pair of heels. My staff noticed! That part was funny. Sad was the backache at the end of the day, proving that an identical pair was not identical!

  12. You must have some sturdy slippers not to notice the different surfaces. Hugs for your slide into comfort.

  13. I've had two different shades of brown boots on at work. I have walked out of the house with slippers on, but never got as far as driving away in the car. But I do understand. Glad no livestock flew through the air. -jenn

  14. Definitely circuit overload, you are a very busy woman!

    I thought I had developed a severe dose of halitosis the other morning. I had swooped in to give my granddaughter a kiss, and she recoiled. Horror! Shock! It turns out that she hates the smell of mint, in any form, including toothpaste, and I had just cleaned my teeth.

  17. Went to an 'end of the school year party' one year and noticed I had my slippers on from the short stop at home. What the heck, the school year was over I was on summer time, but it was funny.

  18. Susan,

    I say stay in your slippers!!! The wind, snow, ice, and rain is terrible and I hear there's more to come this weekend!!! Be safe, keep warm, and have a glass of wine or two for me :-)

    Hugs, and Love to you and your furbies!!!
