I'd Lose My Head If it Wasn't Attached or so says my Mom

Photobucket

Tada...lol. This is the extent of my fall decor outside. It's located in my wildflower patch. It used to have a really neat split rail fence around it but the darned thing rotted out. I didn't get it replaced this past summer. ::sigh:: shooting for next year.

My pumpkins got rained upon, as you can tell, but I had to add an animation which distorted the pumpkins' color in the animation shop. Oh well. I was going to get a couple of mums but I always kill em, and they looked half dead already in the store.

So, my adventures into craziness this week have been driving me nuts. I took my car to Auto Zone. They run the computer scan for free to trouble shoot the service engine light. It came out with something to do with gas and vapors. Said to check the gas cap. Well, my gas cap was totally off and very neatly laying inside next to where you put your gas into the car. The ouside door thingie was closed. I got gas Thurs night, put 145 miles on the car and the light came on Saturday afternoon. Nothing makes sense. If I had driven away without putting the cap on, it would have been flying around with the door open. But for two days and that many miles. If somebody was syphoning, would they be so anally neat if someone almost caught them? Seriously doubt it. I almost feel it was done on purpose but who the heck would do it? I don't know anybody where I live. So odd....but eerie so now I obsessively check my gas cap constantly.

Then yesterday, I get off of the bus, and my keys weren't in my purse. Ugh... my BF was bringing my spare set down to me but my son had night school and the house was locked. When my BF got down there, I picked up my raincoat that I was dragging around and heard a jingle. The keys....I was relieved but thinking I'm losing it for sure.

Then I get home and could not find the shampoo I bought on Saturday anywhere. The pretty little bag with the pink tissue paper was under the sink; shampoo nowhere to be found. I tore the house apart. Then I was going to bed. LOL...it was on Megan's night stand. It was black and upside down and looked just like the remote. I swear I am sooooooo absent minded.

I'm thinking my dog needs a walk. We've had some rain, and it's chillier so we've been lazy at night again. I'm still keeping up with the walks at lunch.

Here's a Halloween snag. Where is time flying to? HUGS CHRIS

I do that dumb stuff too. I think it comes with age.

Hollie said...

I know how that is too. That's weird about the gas cap. I'm not surprised if someone did that though...with gas prices like they have been. I see so many people on the sides of the road now out of gas....

My mom used to tell me the same thing when I was growing up. Like Heather from Tightening the Corset Again said"Crazy is fun.Embrace it" LOL

Cool Halloween decoration. I want one to put in my apartment. LOL

Debbie said...

I do stuff like that too. Sounds like you've had one heck of a week. I'm really surprised your car would run at all with the gas cap off. Glad you found your problem.
Hugs

Debbie said...

Dawn said...

I do stuff like that too! I bought a pack of two really nice big emory boards, all pretty colored... and when I got home, I put them somewhere. Don't know where. ACK!

Barb said...

I'm forever losing something and it can be RIGHT IN FRONT of ME!!!!
Rich is convinced I'm a scatterbrain. I must say I can't really argue with him.
Just like sending him to the DR last week (a week early)when it was ME who had an appt. THAT day. I was 20 min. late. DUH.He says it from all the fumes I breathe getting my hair & nails done. LOL
Have a good Friday.
Luv N Hugs, Barb

Cute decoration and tag, Chris. I used to have a problem with my ABS light coming on if I parked sideways on a hill. Always had to restart the car for the light to go off. Haven't heard about the gas cap thingie, though.

Joan said...

Hi, I am always loosing things too yesterday it was the lead for my camera-PC found it in a enpty kleenex box. Oh well Love Joan.

Teresa said...

I seem to be doing that kind of thing a lot more lately too LOL ~ I ask Cindy "have you seen my head laying around somewhere? I swear I lost it" she looks at me like I'm nuts LOL. But then I'm 10 years older than her! LOL
the snag is great ! thanks for sharing* Blessings, Teresa

Chrissie said...

Honey it's called having to many things to worry about at one time. We all have days like that. I think Kait had something wrong with her car like that and it was just a part that needed to be replaced. It measures the fumes going into the ozone or blocks it something like that it was a long time ago so I don't remember what she said it was. As far as the gsscap goes I would get a locking one. We don't even fool around over here. I love your page with all those floating bats and ghosts.
Hugs, Chrissie

What are your settings in Animation Shop? There is no way to get rid of the grainy-ness 100% but certain settings can reduce it.

Everyone's blog i've read this morning seem to be talking about how crazy of a week it's been. and it has...TGIG!!

LMAO About the Shampoo!!

Brittany said...

hahaha TGIG....i meant TGIF...see i'm losing it too!

Joyce said...

I do dumb stuff all the time. We learn & laugh from it. It makes us who we are.

D said...

that gas cap thing is common.. and sometimes it takes a bit to register... just hope it was you that left it off and you don't have someone messing with you.
Have a great weekend and stay warm.. it's gonna be cold here.

Jeannette said...

You sound just like me Chris! I do things like this all the time and with the place in such a mess it's so hard to hunt for stuff! Funny but I was just writing this in an email to you, I'm too old to have to think now! Lol! Have a good weekend. Jeannette xx

This page is so cute!
I have had that same gas cap problem. What a world it has become that it takes a computer to find this out.
