The State I'm In Tonight (and it ain't Ohio...)



Well, if last Wednesday was a guacamole day, this one is a Bowl-of-cereal-at 11 p.m. kind of night.

Perish the thought of life without cereal.

I might cry a little if I think about it too hard.

But the point is, I'm up to my eyeballs in paper scraps and my lids are drooping and I have miles to go before I sleep.

And miles to go before I slee-ee-eep.

Also? Have you ever done that thing where you fire off an email so quickly that you don't notice that while you think you're emailing your best gal, you're actually emailing the wife of your husband's ex-boss?

You have?

Well, when you did it, did your email contain a naughty word that you have probably never typed out in all of your days, but you had no choice but to type it out this time because you were quoting Anne Lamotte?

Yep. That's the kind of night I'm having.

But lemme tell you, it was good for a laugh.

Sincereally yours,
Flower Patch Flusteredgirl

  2. hahahah. I've done something quite similar. Isn't tonight writing night? How'd it go? I sooo wish I could eat cereal!! I miss it almost as much as I miss yogurt. I'm still working, but it's only 9 here. :) Have fun with Becky tomorrow!!! I'm super duper jealous!!

  5. haha my sister did something like this once and we still laugh over it. Do you eat your cereal in a Jethro sized bowl? It's how I roll, so it is why I get no carbs. Poor me.

  7. Ha! At least it wasn't a 'vent' email to your mother in law that you never ment to send, but rather draft. You can imagine my panik when I awoke in the night and realized my mistake. As for the cereal...don't even joke like that! I'd die w/out my Honey Nut Cheerios. :D

  11. Or like when you are ignoring a call, and realize the caller is standing nearby looking at you...uh-huh! I understand. And pop tarts are my drug of choice.

  14. "land sakes alive", I'd be all a flustered too. Look at that Running Word Count on the side. E-mails sent to here and there, late-night bowls of cereal. It's all good, It's all good.
    ~G~

  15. haha Gotta love those kind of moments! And this is why I am always weary of Wednesday. It often is weird and wacky!

    Hope your cereal helps calm your flustered state of mind!

  16. Well, this will cure what ails you, Farmgirl. One week from yesterday, so, basically six days from now, or since it's tomorrow where you are, in five days, (are you still with me?), season five, (the final season)(moment of silence), of FNL is out on DVD.
    Please excuse the grammatical carnage and blatant overuse of commas in the above sentence.
    Oh, and here's to good friends, livin large in Texas.

  17. Don't know if Cheerios help the problem but they can't make it worse!

  18. Just so you know...I have found...here on this island...

    Frosted Flakes
    Rice & Coco Krispies {Snap!}
    Cookie Crisp
    Well, and granola.

    All in somewhat different packaging, but alas still American cereal.
    Hope that helps you sleep.

  19. No I haven't done the email thing, but I did have a slip of the tongue moment on the phone which was as bad if not worse. I can't share due to atty-client confidentiality but Oh, it was bad. Pass the milk.

  20. You ARE going to tell us what she emails back, right?

    ReplyDelete
  21. If it makes you feel any better...one time, in a flurry of calls as a receptionist, I told a gentlemen on the phone (who happened to be the director of the Juvenile Department).... "Thank you for helping, can I hold you?" I won't tell you his response. It might make ye readers a bit uncomfortable. ha! Hope you got the rest you needed!

  22. ...or maybe have you sent a text to your sister-in-law saying you're selling the hideous jewelry box she gave you for your birthday when you actually thought you were texting your cousin. Yes, I said hideous. No, I could not take it back. It was done. And the jewelry box was hideous.

  23. I love Anne Lamott! What quote were you sharing? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh my! yikes! :) well, that's a very pretty cereal bowl all the same!

    ReplyDelete
  25. woopsie!! just plead temporary insanity, due to lack of sleep? :)

  26. Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird has to be one of my favorite books of all time. And I'm with you on the cereal thing - I think I've had it for dinner twice this week (it's what happens when Hubby's working late all the time).

    ReplyDelete
  27. Uh, oh. I always fear that one of my emails over facebook will accidental post as a status update. Computer glitches happen like that.

    At least you laughed. ;-)

  28. Ah, quoting Anne Lamotte huh? lol. Whatever helps you sleep nights. ;)

    I once mistakenly e-mailed my boss a catty e-mail complaining about her (I thought I was sending it to a co-worker). Thank God for the "recall" feature in Outlook. If she ever read it, to her credit, she didn't mention it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh dear. I'm impressed that after a mishap like that, you turned to Cheerios for comfort. I may have opted for something a little more... fermented. ;)

    I've pulled the "hit reply instead of forward" with a very un-helpful bit of my own commentary a time or two too many, so you're surely not alone!

  30. i made sour cream coffee cake last night. baking therapy. However, I do love a bowl of cereal when times get tough. Feel better. Once I emailed my boss on accident instead of my friend. The email may have contained a clip art squirrel. I caught my mistake and deleted it, but he insisted on me sending it again when he noticed that I had deleted it. Humiliating.

  31. If I could live my life eating Lucky Charms and Fruity Pebbles, I would be a happy girl!

    As usual, you made me LOL.

    I just sent an email to the wrong person 2 days ago. I was horrified, but luckily there were no curse words or anything bad. It was FOR my husband regarding easter. What I received back was "I think this was meant for someone else. You really love the person you sent this to. He also knows Richard."

    LOL.

    Hope you had the sleep of the angels!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my-I have done that. I have a client that does that to me all the time. She sends texts that are meant for her husband. I dread reading them because I fear it will be something naughty!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, Flower Patch Farmgirl, you make me laugh. I've loved ya since I started reading awhile back but now that I know you like cereal before bed...that just seals the deal :) Happy Thursday!

    XOXO,
    Angie from Ohio

  34. Ugg about the email!! Golly.
    Yes....Cereal is a little bit of heaven... in a bowl... or a coffee cup.

  35. ~you NEVER fail to make me chuckle!!

    ~Thank you for that:0)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That looks to me like multi-grain cheerios--my personal favorite form of cheerios! Alas, the pantry is currently waiting for a cereal sale. Boo-hoo.

    ReplyDelete
  37. P'shaw. Look at the bright side; it could have been e-mailed to the wife of your husband's CURRENT boss!

    ReplyDelete
  38. P.S.- I eat my cereal out of a tall cup with a tall iced tea spoon.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey! I am in Ohio, and I'd rather be in your state. :)

  41. This made me laugh - and Anne Lamotte quotes can get you in trouble!

    ReplyDelete
  42. any sane person would know you were incapable of anything horrible and naughty...lol. No worries my friend, we have all felt in need of a redo, if nothing else at least you can laugh about it.
