Hi guys!! This is Cat, back with day #2 of my Social Media Challenge! For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about check out this link:
That is the intro post for my challenge….or just keep reading… here are the basics…
Basically, I decided I wanted to remember everyday what I was thankful for and not so much about all the crappy things that had happened that day or that I had seen on the news… So I created #365smc – that is the official hashtag for my challenge! Here are the rules of the game: I challenge you to post 365 days in a row what you are thankful for and why on the social media platform of your choice. When you post, make sure you use the hashtag #365smc so I can find all of your posts, videos, etc and give you a shout out!! 😀 I will be posting mine on Youtube and WordPress every single day and will be posting from time to time on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. I will also be searching various sites for my hashtag to see who is playing along!! :o)
So on day #2 of my challenge I am thankful for… #MistersThatArentButtholes and #NeosporinWithPainRelief.
Here is why… On Thanksgiving Day – we had a FULL schedule. I wanted to get up early and drive 45 minutes South to visit with my family at my aunts house and then drive about an hour Northeast of there to spend the rest of our holiday with the Mister’s dad and his wife. They will be going on a 22 day trip to Cape Cod during Christmas, so we were celebrating both holidays on this day. After we piled the 3 year old (in his car seat), the 12 (almost 13 year old diva) Mini Me and the 14 (almost 15 year old) big kid in the back seat, locked the front door and had all of the things we needed for the day in the trunk, I thought it would be a really awesome idea to put the keys to the car in my jacket pocket and then lock it in the trunk!!
NO joke. #ImABigDummy So we unloaded all of the children, put them in the house to (fight and argue and drive me crazy-er) hang out and then dismantled – broke in – figured out a way to get the keys back. We looked for a “how to (not be a dummy) get into your locked trunk without the keys” video on Youtube. However the one we found, basically said we would need to saw a hole into the side panel of the car…that isn’t really an option. A locksmith on Thanksgiving day would have been astronomical…assuming we could find one willing. So I finally got the #bright idea to stick my arm in between the seats with a long wire and pull my jacket to me to get the keys out. It actually worked…after about an hour…and lots of scratches…and bruising….sigh.
I was mostly worried about the Mister giving me a hard time or making feel like a big idiot for not being more careful. I’ve had that car for 5 or 6 years and I’ve always been super careful with my key because I only have one! Because it has some kind of special chip in it, it would cost like $85 for a new one!! However, he was really sweet about the whole thing. Once it was all said and done the scratches on my arm were burning like crazy!! The Neosporin with Pain Relief worked like magic and soon my arm was only irritated when I touched it against something. So I’m definitely thankful for those 2 things!
Thanksgiving Day was a great day though. I didn’t get to see my parents or family, we had to nix that because of time restraints. However it was a great day! I got to visit with the Mister’s family and we had Thanksgiving dinner and exchanged gifts with his family.
If you’d like to see my video on the story, check out the clip of my little man giggling like crazy in a giant jingle bells hat, and check out the scratches on my arm (honestly I’m being a big baby) you can hope over to my YouTube channel, Obliviously Awesome and check out the video with the same name as the post. The video is about 10 minutes long so it would be a fun little break for ya. – Here is the YouTube Video that goes with this post.
I look forward to your comments and questions below and on my YouTube video. Remember if you want to play along with my social medial challenge, use the hashtag: #365smc. See you guys tomorrow!
