    Every so often, we all do things that are really just head up our own butts stupid.... well......... :redface:

    We had seven inches of snow overnight through today. I went down to my car before so I could go out and pick up some fresh veggies and herbs for the bunny at the produce store. (the bunny was very happy, btw).

    But it turns out, when the boy and I went down to the car, I found I left the drivers' side window open.... my drivers' seat, the floorboards and the rear passenger side of the car had snow drifts....

    *sigh* I am still being laughed at... we had to use the snow brush to clean out the snow and I ran the seatwarmer to dry out the drivers' side seat.

    now THAT is buttheaduous... I don't even remember opening the car window yesterday. ;(

    I picked up the bath mat outside of my shower on Saturday, thinking I'd throw it in the wash. Then, took a shower, and left a big puddle of water. I thought to myself, "Don't slip."

    Then, left the room. When I came back in, I totally forgot about the water and promptly fell on my ass on the slick tile floor.

    I think I got it all. lol..... and hubby says that despite my buttheaduous move, no permanent damage and it's mostly dried out b/c when we did finally go out the heat was on and dried it.

    lol... I have two more years on the lease... I'm just glad I didn't blow out the electrical system. :eek:

    With that comes the power to control the weather.

    Have a family picnic coming up you don't want to attend? Leave your car windows open. It WILL rain, and rain hard. Guaranteed.

    Trust me. It works.

    I have a couple of bruises (hip, shoulder, elbow), but I'm mostly happy that NO ONE SAW ME FALL LIKE THAT.

    Was scary, too. The thought: "I could break a hip" crossed my mind.
