for the love of the glo bar

17 Aug

So, today was quite chaotic!

This morning I woke up not feeling too well and got dressed to go to PiYo only to get undressed again and crawl back under the covers.  I then proceeded to “work from bed” for the next couple of hours until my stomach settled down a little bit.

I finally rolled out of bed because I had a full day of tasks and errands ahead of me!  A little while later I had just finished up some Outbox work and was packaging the Operation Beautiful book to mail to the giveaway winner, when I heard a loud ruckus coming from the office.  It sounded like the entire office was crashing in!

I raced in there, nearly squashing Olive underfoot, to find this

Our closet exploded!  Oh dear.

So, I basically stared at the mess for about 1.5 seconds, then turned tail and scampered back to my bedroom to finish wrapping my package.

A few minutes later I got everything finished up – OB book wrapped up, Modcloth dresses repackaged and addressed, bank deposit slips filled out – and was ready to head out for my errands.

But first, a snack.

I’ve been dying to try a Glo bar for ages, but the shipping cost has always deterred me.  Which is why I was pretty excited when I pulled one out of my HLS swag bag!

So, I finally decided to eat it, but in true food blogger style I stepped out on our back deck to get a picture of it first.

After getting a good shot of it, I walked to the back door, reached for the knob, turned….

and nothing.  It was locked.  Little Olive was staring back at me from inside with a look that said “well this is a new situation.”

I immediately began to evaluate my options. No hidden key.  Front door is locked.  No cell phone.  Hmmm.

Guess I’ll walk to Jon’s office. Just me, my camera and my Glo bar.  What more do I need?

Maybe a big stick, actually.  This crazy dog started barking his head off at me.   I thought he was going to try and steal my Glo bar😦

Halfway there!  And half a Glo bar down!

Finally made it!

My Glo bar and I were both a hot sweaty (melty) mess, but we made it:)

The End.

    Haha – this is too cute. So sorry about your closet explosion but glad Jon lives close enough that you could walk. I thought the Empower Glo Bar was SO DELICIOUS. Makes me tempted to order some…or try other flavors. I agree about the shipping charge – but perhaps a birthday present? Stocking stuffer for Christmas? 🙂

    Total bummer locking yourself out. Good thing you had shoes on!! I ate my GloBar instantly on the airplane on Sunday…and LOVED it! I was FULL for hours.

    Good thing his office isn’t too far huh? At least you had the GloBar in case it was an all day hike 😉 I’ve been really wanting to try those.

    Oh no! How annoying! Glad Jon’s walk is within walking distance. I have no idea what I would have done! And, I really want to try those Glo bars, they look delicious.

    not a fun situation, but I like your positive spin and funny way you tell the story… love that little pup trying to get your glo bar!! 🙂

    I recently found you and I’m enjoying the catching up of old posts! 🙂

      thanks! I just found your blog now and am so excited to read more!

      And yes, that dog was vicious!

    What a fun story. I’ve been wanting to try a glo bar too since finding her blog but the cost has deterred me. How was the taste of the empower bar?

    • candice August 18, 2010 at 9:32 pm #

      It tasted awesome, actually. The glo bar is thicker and chewier than I imagined, which I loved. The empower had a very subtle coffee taste + chocolate chips. Wish I had more…I’d send one your way. The shipping definitely makes them crazy expensive:( If one of us ever goes to Canada, we’ll have to bring a stash back to OK, lol.
