{WIWW} Whoops

Having a bad week?  Need a little pick-me-up to get you over the hump?  Let me tell you about some of my "not-so-bright" or "whoops" moments over the past month.  (I'm glad its now March...time for a fresh start)  They are sure to make you feel a bit better about yourself.  I'm actually a little embarrassed to share this, but oh well.

But first to make myself feel a little bit better- this outfit was not a whoops.  I actually think it turned out pretty well.

Cardigan- Gap Clearance
Jeans- Gap Maternity
Shoes- Ecco
Necklace- ??  I think from some random shop in CA??

And now the whoops...

1.  I clean both mine and Phoebe's shower and bathroom on a weekly basis.   I especially want hers to be clean since she is sitting in the bath-tub.  I have never had a bath mat or no-slip mat in my tub, but I do have one in Phoebe's tub.  I don't know why it NEVER crossed my mind that I needed to pick up and clean underneath the bath mat.  I have just been scrubbing around and over it like it is a permanent fixture in the tub.  Well the other day I noticed something black around the edge of the bath mat.  Hmmm, interesting.  So I pulled it up and you can just imagine what it looked like underneath.  I will spare you the picture.  Needless to say that bath mat went in the trash and I got to scrubbing...  Whoops.

2.  I have had no bladder control issues while being pregnant.  No leaking when I cough, sneeze or laugh.  But not once, but TWICE I have been running to the bathroom (at home) and sat down to pee only to realize that I forgot to open the lid of the toilet.  Yes people, I made it to the toilet just not in the toilet...  Whoops.

3.  I didn't know until recently that when you clean your oven using the auto-clean feature that you have to wipe out all the ashes from the bottom of the oven.  I could not figure out why I kept "cleaning" my oven to burn everything away, but it was still smoky when I used it.  I don't know why it never crossed my mind that after you essentially burn everything in there during the auto-clean session, that you needed to go in and do a manual clean as well...  Whoops.

What are some of your bright shining moments from this past month?  Please tell me I'm not the only one who does things like this?
