    I got a Target package, along with a bunch of other packages from Target, a few weeks ago with a size 6 girl's swim suit in it. I assumed that someone just though it was cute and bought it without checking the size for E. She wears a size 2T. I just put it off to the side until I could venture out to Target to return it. Before I took it out of the car, something made me look at the address label. It was my neighbor's package.

    Ugh, I forgot my embarrassment from Monday until now but HERE I AM.

    So my coworker “Jess” texted late Sunday night that her power was out and she wasn’t sure what to do since our boss was out. I saw someone was helping her Monday but wanted to offer myself and another coworker to cover Tuesday for her.

    So I call and leave a message explaining the schedule and what I could change, and mention a few other scheduling details. Hang up and see “X, PA” in the contact. Hmmmm Jess lives in Montana. Why does my comtact have a PA address for her. Oh, right. Thats my personal cell phone I am holding. Thats not my coworker. I had called my SIL Jess and left her this long rambling work VM.

    Had to call the correct Jess and start over. SIL texted and was like “are u okay???”

    Completely related I just switched to have my work phone be the same model as the personal and put then both in cases with black rims. Literally ordered a Target drive up order phone case that minute.

    Update: I wrote my neighbors an apology note, taped it to the package and put it in their mailbox since I kept on missing them yesterday. They're going to think, "Wow, she's really dumb," and to that I say, "Yes, you are correct."

    My SIL posted some copypasta on FB about the c word being so powerful...when you're alone with your doctor. For a few seconds, I was so flabbergasted that her doctor would call her a cunt then kept reading.

    I’m defending this by letting you know I have had A DAY and I had just gotten off a long session.

    So this morning my charting software crashed and deleted some charts. Fml. Enter an IT ticket and get word theyll be calling me ASAP.

    Cut to 20 min ago and I get a call from a number not in my patient region. I figure its either a pt whose a transplant or an outside lab with some outstanding testing. I answer and the person says Hi this is Matt* with It. I just sit there racking my brain trying to figure out what testing I sent to IT and what lab this is. A few awakward moments of silence and I go “...I’m sorry what lab are you calling from?” And he says...the IT department? About your computer?

    I was like ohhhh...right...of course

    I was looking for a short story and when I pulled out one of the anthologies I thought it might be in, I realized I accidentally thieved my college housemate’s copy of the book. My bad, T. It only took me 28 years to notice ... :lol:

    A spider had the audacity to show themselves near by face while I was in the bath. I managed to splash my book with a bunch of water and damn near drop my phone in the tub trying to get it. Then I had to call for J to help me find and get it out of the tub because my bath bomb was too glittery.

    A tiny moth flew at me right as I was starting to squeegee the shower and I definitely freaked out and jumped around and turned the shower back on.

    A spider fell into the bathtub while I was taking a shower and I just got out and moved on. The conditioner may still be in my hair.

    Trying to pack up the house slowly and Z just asked me, bemused, where the hell I found his 2012 AP style guide.

    In the gym bag I clearly haven’t used since our last move two years ago.

    I feel so crazy as I write this. I believe in my heart that a few of my bras have gone missing.

    A few weeks ago, I cleaned and reorganized the bedroom the same day as doing laundry. I piled up some clean clothes, including bras, to finish up for later. I distinctly remember folding up and putting away everything except my bras. I really feel like some of them should still be with my folded tshirts but nope.

    P is gently trying to convince me that enough time has passed for me to have worn all my bras. Maybe? But I was off work for a week and defo didn't wear a bra most of those days. Plus I'm doing laundry and some seem to be missing.

    Sorry this is so long y'all. I'm just feeling truly insane and like I've completely lost touch with reality. Because of bras. That I may or may not have ever owned...?

    I cleaned out my office fridge yesterday because I'm off for the next week. I brought home an unopened bag of apple slices and a salad and just now realized that I never moved them from my lunch bag to the refrigerator.

    I got hella sunburned yesterday. I was putting stuff in the bag for the garbage company and I didn’t even think about putting sunscreen on because I was coming/going to and from our apartment and not spending time outside. Our downstairs neighbor came out to talk because she was bored and apparently I stood in the sun for way longer than I realized. Ugh. I’m pissed at myself especially because my tattoo is on the part that got burned. Lots of aloe today.

    Did a mass removal on a 140 pound dog last week. It was his inner thigh so a stupid spot. Sutures pulled open. When we sedated him to clean and resuture because he’s huge we set up on the treatment room floor.

    The next morning (dog name changed for anonymity):

    Me: I think I pulled a muscle in my ass doing Wilson on the floor yesterday.

    vet tech: do you think maybe you might want to rephrase that?

    It’s been a while (over 2 months) since I chopped an onion.

    I forgot that chopping onions makes you cry.

    J was making stuffed peppers and without thinking cut both ends off the pepper like he was going to chop it. So we had 3 stuffed peppers and 1 long strip of pepper with filling on it. :lol:
