oh my life kills me sometimes

I'm back to drinking coffee from a straw today.
I still can't raise my arms high enough to get the mug to my mouth. I also had to take this picture from waist-level. You should have seen me trying to get the viewfinder to my eye, or my eye down to the viewfinder. Impossible. And hilarious.

You want to know what else is hilarious?
Husband trying to put my hair in a ponytail. I had no idea he didn't know how to do ponytails. You think you really know someone.
It took 17 tries. I'm not kidding. At one point I said, "aren't you supposed to be an engineer?" Five more attempts later he said, "can't we just use a zip tie?"
Yep, he's still an engineer.

So what is wrong with me, you might ask?
How much time do you have?
Honestly though, nothing too major. Just a little something called Subluxation, or "partial dislocation" of some bone in my body.
Fun!

Husband thought I had lyme disease. Husband is not a doctor.
So, I'll be hanging out on my laptop today if anyone needs me.
And telling Sherman to stop licking my face.
I also spent about four hours looking through some old photos yesterday of my super sexy husband (that would be the pain meds talking again).
Honestly, I really just wanted to see more pictures of myself as a blonde, since I'll be going back to blonde again very soon. This is thanks to the 50+ people who wrote "BLONDE!!" in response to my post yesterday.
And to this husband said, "So would you jump off a bridge if 50+ people told you to?"
And to this I said, "Yes. Yes I would."
The End.

  3. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
    I think after 5 attempts at my hair, I'd tell my husband to just leave it. You both have some patience! Ha ha.

  6. I happen to love drinking coffee from a straw, so I'm definitely supporting you with that decision :) What is it with these men? It's like they can't use their fingers, because hair tying is not that difficult. I hope you feel much better soon!!

  7. Get better soon! I'm wondering now if my boyfriend would be able to put my hair in a pony tail....

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hope you feel better! My "boyfriend" in 5th grade could braid my hair, now he's gay. It's probably for the best that he couldn't put your hair into a ponytail ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Feel better soon! Nothing worse then having to stay in bed, or is there nothing better??? I kid, I know you are in pain. Get better soon!

  13. I hope you are feeling better today. You should just let Sherman lick you. Those kisses are magical, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hope you feel better! Next time ask Sherm to put your hair up!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. I hope you start feeling better soon! And yay for going back to blonde! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. This seems like one of those " you know your a blogger when" intros with your husband. He doesnt think its weird your in pain and still taking photos, and he now realizes the power of your bloggy bffs lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hope you feel better soon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ahhh, I hope you feel better soon. I'm 95% sure that I'm going to go blonde soon... I'm scared!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the blonde color on you!! Hope you get to feeling better SOON!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, ow! Feel better soon; rest up and hopefully you're able to actually not do anything so you can just heal! Also, I learned how to braid my own hair at the tender age of 2.5, since it was my Dad's job to take me to preschool in the mornings... enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hope you are back to yourself in no time!! :) I just did some blonde highlights again and I love them!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Okay, the ponytail thing just cracked me up!!

    Biofreeze is my best friend. I KEEP it on my nightstand. I have a bad back and it's the only thing I've found that gives me relief!

    Hope you feel better, pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  24. the ponytail thing is killing me. however, i have attempted multiple times to teach my husband how to braid my hair because you never know when it may come in handy. you know?

    also, i hope you feel better soon. i love these old pictures and i definitely agree with blonde. blondes really do have more fun.

    get better :)

  25. Yuck...Lymes disease is my biggest fear - I hate ticks. I need to send you a photo of my college roomie. As a blonde, you and her could be TWINS! Feel better soon!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh gosh! So sorry to hear you're under the weather. I'm pretty sore myself today (thanks to 4 unavoidable workouts yesterday withing 24 hours - that's what happens when you're a fitness instructor sometimes). But nothing a good IB and a bath won't help. Hope you are able to rest up and find some relief! I'm sure your pup will take good care of you.- Loving the old blond photos...yes, I think you made the right decision :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yikes! No fun!! Get to feeling better asap! My husband is an engineer too, and while most of the time I have been super impressed with his ability to figure things out and fix them, there have definitely been some moments I'm shocked that he is one.

    ReplyDelete
  28. uhhh...stop breaking.
    also, i could have SWORN i started following you weeks ago. stupid technology. there's so much of your life i have to stalk-up on.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You two are adorable! I hope you feel better soon!! :)

  32. "Super sexy husband" (that's the pain meds talking...) Haha! I love that!

    I love that your husband can't put your hair in a ponytail! My hubby is supposed to be a smarty pants with computers and a lot of people would count on him to fix some very complicated IT problems at his job...but he can't remember where we keep the spatula. C'mon!!! :D

  33. Look at us. I went to the doc this am for my hyena (hernia) the great thing is situs aren't in my future. The bad thing is situps should be in my future. I hope you feel better if not pour some whiskey in that coffee. It cures what ailes ya

    ReplyDelete
  34. my hubby wouldn't be able to put my hair in a ponytail either, lol...hope you feel better soon!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hope you start feeling better :\ You know Clay asked me the other day the same thing about 50+ bloggers...and I said the same thing. :) Y'all's opinions and input do matter to me too. hugs & kisses! & Feel Better!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh boy! I hope you feel better soon! And just for the record, I don't think my husband could do a pony tail either!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I say blonde only because you are brunette now and I support the need for change. If you were blonde I would have picked brunette. You pull both off so well!

    ReplyDelete
  38. OH my gosh! How did you do that? I hope you're getting plenty of rest today.

    When I was in the hospital having Charlie, it seriously took Noel 17 times to get my hair in a ponytail...is it really that difficult??

    ReplyDelete
  39. i'm so excited to see your hair! :)

    feel better! and soon. i don't think you can stand to handle hubby attempting to put your hair in a ponytail ... although, when i think of it, it is so sweet that he even attempted.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh no!!! :( hope you feel better very, very soon. At least you get to lay around and take it easy and do nothing today (there's me trying to look at the bright side of things). That's so funny about your husband trying to tie your hair! And speaking of hair, loving all the blonde photos! xo

  41. I love the picture of the two of you dancing! How precious! I also vote for blonde :) how exciting! I hope you feel better asap!

    ReplyDelete
  42. When I grow up, I want to live out loud like you, dear Tiff. Sherman...stop licking her face!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh man... I hope you feel better. I love the idea that engineers are supposed to be able to figure out everything. It makes me feel like a total failure when I can't (which, of course, is never).

    I didn't comment yesterday (I got shy), but definitely agree with the blonde.

    I had Lyme Disease. So I feel your pain. And I am super glad you don't have Lyme Disease.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the pictures! I hope your neck feels better soon! In the meantime, enjoy browsing old pictures, hanging out with Sherman and playing on the internet.

  45. Hope you get to feeling better!

  46. OUCH! Hope you heal soon that sounds horribly painful!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I hope your delocated whatever relocates soon - that souns miserable! And for the record, I like your hair both ways and I'm totally jealous that you can pull the blonde and the brunette off perfectly. Now go jump off a bridge, I'll be waiting.

    P.S. Blonde is a good choice! :)

  49. Poor you, sounds terrible- although you are sounding quite cheery! Funny about your husband & the pony tail attempts.

    ReplyDelete
  50. ok-let me be at least ONE person who says, "dont jump of a bridge!!!"

    lands.

    second of all-dude, i'm so so sorry. that sounds miserable. keep us updated on the healing process. k?

    ReplyDelete
  51. A blonde is a blonde is a blonde. I don't know what that means, but I agree with the 50 others. And thank you for the picture editing advice. I will get right on that... soon.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sorry to hear that you're slightly immobilized at the moment! Feel better soon, okay? You have made me want to teach my boyfriend how to put my hair in a ponytail JUST IN CASE. Give sherman a head scratch for me!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Are you a natural blonde? I am...and the closest I've ever come to coloring my hair is low lights. The camera I now have is the Cannon T3...so excited-already taking some pictures before I actually have time to sit down and watch the manual on DVD.
    Feel better soon!

  54. I hope you feel better! I wish I could take pictures from my point of view. Currently working on that (:

  55. If you jump, I jump after you. So we best stay alive.

    I could have SWORN i commented. epic fail on my part, because it was the first blog I read today. (i get it now)

    Tiff. your neck. I just hate that you hurt it. but i want to know what you were dreaming about when you hurt it, clearly you whipped your head really fast in your dream, you probably saw a mess somewhere.. regardless, I hate that you hurt it, but i hate it even more that you aren't wearing a cone. (still saying it) (still funny) (still laughing) (still love me?)

    I've concluded that I should send you an air duster thing-a-ma-bob. you can still clean. TIFF DUDE, YOU COULD STILL CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg. omg. omg.

    tell sherman i love him, and I'll be dog napping him this week, because you won't be able to run after me in your fragile state.

    can you believe this comment?

  61. I hope you are feeling better!! I love that it took your husband 17 times to put your hair into a ponytail! My boyfriend would do the same thing!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I hope you feel better soon.That's no fun.
    OMG, I believe you about ponytail.Sometimes I'm amazed of things what boyfriend can't do and those are simple ones.
    Imagine what would they do with make-up...
    Have a wonderful day!
    Take care!

  63. I'm late, but although you look pretty as both a blonde and a brunette, I'd have to go with blonde. I drink my coffee with a straw sometimes just because (ok actually it's because I'm afraid it'll stain my teeth because I drink so much of it). And lastly I hope you feel better soon...whatever is wrong sounds like NO FUN. I'll include you in my prayer tonight! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hope you're up to doing your own ponytail soon! :) Love the pics of you two!

    ReplyDelete
  65. A ziptie! Men hah! Once you're back up and running you definitely need to do some light yoga. You will be shocked at how your body will respond. I've been to physical therapy twice, and it's almost all yoga. After going to a few one on one classes (which is totally unnecessary and happened only by chance) I was pain free, which hadn't happened in years. Best of luck!

  66. Awe, I really hope you feel better really soon!

  68. Not that you need my two cents along with the five billion other people who said it but definitely blonde. =)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oooh ouch! Hope you feel better soon! I had to laugh out loud at your husband's 17 attempts at putting your hair in a ponytail! My guy can braid but he can't ponytail! Not sure what that says about him! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Feel better soon! <3 My man also can't tie my hair up, an amazing discovery! He still loves to try though.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Such an adorable couple. I once had my husband put my hair up in a pony tail, and he had no idea and it's also kind of hard to explain to. It's like we just have always known how to do it. Anyway hope your bone finds it's way back :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm going to ask my husband do my hair because of this post!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yikes, hope you get too feeling better soon! Good thing Sherman is there to take care of you!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hahaha I don't know how you manage to make me laugh at every single post you have on this thing! It happens. And I didn't get a chance to comment in time, but make that 51 votes for blonde! And I'm fully aware that you're already blonde when you read this. So glad to be catching up on your life this week! Hope you're feeling better!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. oh my goodness, I hope you feel better soon. It was pretty funny reading about your hubby trying to do your hair. Actually really really funny:)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Is this your husband in all these pictures? Oh my gosh he looks so much like Ed from the Jillian's season of the bachelor it freaks me out completely. Does he get that alot? I had to do like five double takes just to make sure that it wasn't him. If you don't know what I'm talking about google jillian and ed and it'll blow your mind!
