fun facts friday

August 31, 2012

1. This week has been a doozy. School for me on Tuesday night followed by our annual Curriculum Night for parents last night. I can say with no regrets — TGIF.

2. With that being said, I’ve been a weeee bit on the edge at home this week. I had to send this e-card to the husband last night. Anyone else?

Funny Apology Ecard: I'm sorry for the unkind words I spoke out of hunger.

3. This might be crass, but one of the funniest things ever to me is watching Charlie when he passes gas. He looks behind him with this horrified look on his face wondering what the heck is going on. HILARIOUS.

4. Can I just take a moment to tell you how much Sprint (the phone service) sucks? Like seriously. The Husband and I were loyal customers for years until a few months ago when their service WAS NOT WORKING AT ALL. We basically had to text whenever we wanted to get ahold of each other because calling wasn’t working. When we canceled our service because the service our contract said they were providing WAS NOT WORKING, they told us we still had to pay the charges. The Husband spent HOURS talking to them, and they were nothing but rude. $600 down the drain. Stupid Sprint. Spread the word.

5. Let’s all take a minute to congratulate one of my very bests, Ashley, on her new bundle of joy that will be arriving in April!!!! This has been the hardest secret I’ve ever had to keep since she told me the day she tested. ::sigh:: It feels good to get it out. She is going to be the best mama — love you Ash!

6. Playdate with Katie this weekend? Oh yes.

7. Laundry and house cleaning this weekend? Gag me.

8. That’s all I’ve got. This lady is beat. Happy Friday!

I need to do laundry (like 54893 loads) but now that it’s almost time for Fall clothes, I’m putting it off. :)

good to know! we have T-Mobile and don’t have ANY service in our house- we have to stand outside to talk on the phone! we’re hoping to switch providers soon, so I’m glad to know about this!

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 7:48 pm

That stinks! We switched to AT&T and LOVE it!

Chelsie @ Balance, Not Scale August 31, 2012 at 6:23 am

I was feeling the hAngry at some points this week too. I was a total grumpy bear!!
Ditto on the housework blahs … Our dog has fall allergies and is scratching (and by extension shedding) like CRAZY. Our carpets are now only 25% carpet and 75% dog hair. So daunting!!
Have a great weekend!! Enjoy your down-time — sounds like you’ve earned it!

Yeah that’s no fun! I haven’t vacuumed for like two weeks. It’s gross.

Let the laundry begin. I just started a load now so that I’ll have less to do Sat & Sun… but thank goodness we also get Mon! :D

I know – we’ve been on this journey together for the past six months, and I’m so happy for her!

Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy August 31, 2012 at 7:13 am

Oh no! I won’t be using Sprint! I’ve had Verizon for years, and I love it.

Becky (have turtle will travel) August 31, 2012 at 7:18 am

LOL at Charlie! My mutt does the same thing! It looks like he is trying to blame it on someone else.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 7:59 pm

haha agreed – it’s hilarious!

Tessa @ Amazing Asset August 31, 2012 at 7:31 am

Haha awww Charlie, I have seen dogs make a similar expression :) Yay for meeting up with Katie! I met her for the first time at the HLS and she was just wonderful, I can’t wait to see her again! I hope you two have a nice time together!

I 2nd that: TGIF!!!! :)

Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots August 31, 2012 at 7:40 am

haha at least Charlie feels guilt or confused, my dog just gas blasts us and then acts like nothing happened! Seriously TGIF! I think I need to save that ecard to send to my boyfriend on the regular.

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:00 pm

haha Charlie does that too – it’s only when they make noise when he’s like WTF?

Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles August 31, 2012 at 7:56 am

TGIF!…… YAY for Ashley! :) That is amazing!

CONGRATS to you for Jackson!! He is adorable! How long are you taking maternity leave for?

Reply

Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles September 1, 2012 at 10:31 am

Thank you! I am so stinking blessed- he is truly a gift from God; our little miracle! ……I will take at least 8 weeks. I haven’t decided how long for sure. I’m quickly realizing how hard it’s going to be to drop him off with someone else for the school day- pretty sure it will be the definition of torture!!!!!!

Kim @ Baby Steps to Balance August 31, 2012 at 8:18 am

I love the Ecard! That is so me. My husband always says I rip his face off when I am hungry! Haha!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:01 pm

haha I apologized and he looked at me and said “you’re so mean”. Psh, I know.

Beks August 31, 2012 at 8:48 am

I actually do quality asurance for Sprint (I don’t work for the company, but an outside company). I don’t have Sprint because we live under a tower and STILL you have to stand outside in the most outrageous Yoga pose to get a signal at my house. Ridonk. We have Verizon because my cousin is a store manager, and got a good deal for 3/4 of the family, so we jumped on the bandwagon. I don’t MIND Sprint, having worked with them for almost two years, but they’re still not my first choice.

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:02 pm

So many of my family members/friends have Verizon and they love it!

Ugh that is so frustrating about your cell phone!

And yay for Ashley!

Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries August 31, 2012 at 10:17 am

Hahaha I die laughing every time our dogs pass gas too. They do the same thing that you’re describing about Charlie. It’s SO hilarious!

You are so sweet Chels! Thank you for your congrats and love! I wouldn’t be here without you – seriously! Love you!

Lisa August 31, 2012 at 10:34 am

That e-card is basically me on a daily basis. And the worst is when I work because we don’t get breaks, I swear by the end of my shift I am just one hot mess of a human being.
I was so happy when I heard Ashley’s news!
Have fun with Katie, she’s a sweetie!

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:03 pm

She sure is!

Averie @ Averie Cooks August 31, 2012 at 11:11 am

Your experience with Sprint sums up pretty much EXACTLY what the hubs and I went thru with them in the year 1999 when we left Chicago…nothing’s changed apparently. Hopefully you can get a new carrier, asap!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Ugh, apparently they have not changed in 13 years!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. August 31, 2012 at 11:29 am

Happy Friday! Enjoy the long weekend, and only do laundry/cleaning if you’ve absolutely run out of things to wear and walking through your house feels like navigating through a minefield :D

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:04 pm

It’s already looking that way – I didn’t have time to clean last weekend!!!

Reply

christina August 31, 2012 at 11:31 am

love that e-card. if the weather is nice, you better save that laundry for sunday night!!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey August 31, 2012 at 8:04 pm

I already started it tonight because I had to do homework. Barf.

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles August 31, 2012 at 11:37 am

That ecard describes me to a tee. So unpleasant when i’m hungry.

Definitely excited for Ashley – that’s amazing news!

Reply

Amber K August 31, 2012 at 12:16 pm

I used to work in customer service at Sprint. Nothing made me so grateful for Verizon Wireless more than constantly dealing with their upset customers.

Have a great weekend!

Diane @ Life of Di August 31, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I need to send that e-card to my husband. It perfectly describes me when I’m hungry. :)

Enjoy your weekend Chelsey – it sounds like you need it! :)

Thanks! I finished my homework tonight so now I have the entire weekend to just relax!

Heather August 31, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I am so with you, TGIF! I too started masters program this week and M adjusting. Oh and I totally saves that picture cuz the BF knows there is only a small window of time before I turn crazy once I’m hungry. Good luck with your new school year, those kids sound great!

Congrats! What are you doing your masters for?

i would kill for a play date with Katie! (and you!)

Reply

Christine @ BookishlyB August 31, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Do you still have Sprint? My husband gets no reception at our house (I have AT&T) so they sent him a free tower that has solved the problem. I seriously think there’s not such thing as a good wireless provider.

Reply

Kristen @ notsodomesticated August 31, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Um, yeah, I needed that card for my husband tonight. And last night. And the night before …

OK, maybe I just need to carry a copy of it in my purse at all times! ;)

Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets August 31, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Laundry and cleaning are weekend staples. Why does everything have to get so crazy dirty!!
I get “hangry” too. The Hubby always says, “Maybe it’s time for you to eat something.”
