Things I've Cried About This Week

This week's edition of Humpday Confessions I present to you, inhabitants of blogland, a list of things that have made me cry this week.
  • Re-Run of 19 Kids & Counting with Joseph is reunited with the family after finishing ALERT Training.
  • Ikea commercial featuring Buddy Holly's "Everyday".
  • I got BBQ sauce on my sock.
  • A story in the newspaper about a little boy who is in remission from cancer and helping to raise money.
  • Jason Maraz singing on Live with Kelly & Michael Tuesday morning.
  • A girl I went to high school with announced her engagement on Facebook.
  • This newspaper article from B.C.
  • H. & R. are just SO. FAR. AWAY. 
  • I tried to send photos into Wal-Mart to get prints made and when I went to pick them up there was an error with the files and so only 40 (out of 100) photos printed. 
  • I decided to bake some brownies last night, and then used the wrong pan because I wasn't paying attention. Turns out if you bake brownies in a 6x6 pan instead of an 8x8 pan they will not turn out. They'll get all cake like not at all what you wanted.
  • I've been getting a lot of comments from 'no-reply' bloggers over the past few days and I feel bad because I make an effort to respond and I worry all these 'no-repliers' will think I'm a terrible person.

I don't like focusing on the negatives (or craziness as the case may be) so I'll also make note of a few things that have made me smile this week.
  • We got a Wal-Mart SuperCentre in my little corner of the world and it turns out you can buy pre-made guacamole there and it's delicious. And so cheap (compared to buying avocados) and surprisingly it isn't full of sketchy ingredients. I ate guacamole & chips twice this week for lunch.
  • I've been up past my bedtime almost every night this week because time zones are terrible and when it's 11:00 p.m. on the east coast it's supper time for R. I'm so thankful for technology but my sleep is suffering.
  • During the same ill-fated Wal-Mart trip with the photos I bought a very happy red mug that I've been drinking my coffee & tea out of to start my mornings.
  • I've been participating in the Blog-tember Challenge with Bailey Jean and I have stumbled across so many great blogs! 

What's made you laugh, cry, fill with rage this week? Share your stories and go link up with Kathy


  1. Whats made me cry this week? I have been thinking about letting go of my ford explorer to catch us up on rent. Yes, this brought tears. I have very few things in my possession that I have worked my butt off for, paid off and still have. This is one of them. I am still on the fence whether or not I will be letting it go.

  2. I cant even rem if I cried this week, but I probably did for some crazy thing or the other. Sometimes you just need to release the waterworks :)

  3. ahahaha--I've had weeks like this, believe me. Pre-made guac that actually tastes good is really worth a big smile, though, most pre-made guac is gross.

  4. My inability to get to sleep every night this week has made me want to cry. I just get so frustrated laying there knowing that I'm missing valuable minutes/hours of sleepage.

  5. i got a mug for my birthday and i HAVE to drink my coffee or tea out of it.
    i make my own guac; it's so easy and deeeelish!

    thanks for linking up!

    Vodka and Soda

  6. Good guac for a good price is a find!!!!

  7. Hmmmm I will have to find this guac at Wallyworld! I love guacamole and chips. And I cried this week because I cannot seem to get any sleep and it makes me sooooo upset. I just want to sleep 8 hours straight and when things interrupt that I am not a happy camper.

  8. Any chance you know who sang the ikea commercial's version of Buddy Holly's song "Everyday";
    or if the even released it perhaps?
