Ya know it's gonna be a baaad week when...


Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Actually I thought the week would start out great! Sunday was bright and sunny and warm (no more snow!!!). Monday though, Monday made it all change.

Woke up Monday feeling energetic. I don't like to exercise, but thought, "maybe today I will." Started to brew a pot of go juice (coffee) and decided to start cleaning out some of the lower cupboards while I waited. Cupboard straightened, coffee done, I go to stand up. Lost my balance (born klutz) and beat my knee - with most of my weight on it - on the drawer handle. Now the drawers here don't have 'normal' handles (nor do the cupboards). They have a metal rod that is about 1/2" in diameter from one end of the drawer to the other that sticks out about 1 1/2". Imagine that rod jamming in between your kneecap and femur (thigh bone). emoticon There went any exercising for the week. Oh, but that's not all, oh, no!

Tuesday (today) I limp down the stairs to start my morning coffee. This time I decide I'll clean out the fridge a little while it's brewing. I grabbed my homemade mint-chocolate (low-fat made with agave, but could be made with a no-cal sweetener) that I know I'll need for my coffee and see the other container that I had put what wouldn't fit into the creamer container after I made it. There was plenty of room in the actual creamer container now, so I figured I'd put the extra creamer in with the rest. Only, it was NOT mint-chocolate creamer. I didn't even realize what I had done until the last of the 'creamer' was dripping into the real creamer that there were little bits in the extra 'creamer'. I stopped and sniffed the 'creamer' and realized it was some extra red wine vinaigrette that wouldn't fit into the bottle I have for it. emoticon Never really noticed before today that when I'm not 100% awake the color of my creamer and the color of my homemade (only good fats and no sugar) red wine vinaigrette look an awful lot alike. I had even poured some of the cream-aigrette (new made-up word for the situation) into my coffee thinking, maybe I could use it and just deal. Um, no! The herbs and vinegar were too strong - not to mention the extra oily taste - I couldn't even swallow the first sip.

So, almost 4 cups of mint-chocolate creamer with red wine vinaigrette are now swimming their way to the local sewage treatment plant to be turned into fresh drinking water.
Murphy's Law states that bad things happen in 3's.

Boy, oh, boy, I can't weight (pun intended) to see what tomorrow is going to turn out like! Oh, and I'm cooking dinner for before AWANA tomorrow night. Kinda scared for them now! emoticon

    Third "bad" thing to happen was I forgot to tell DH to buy the meat for the dinner I was cooking for AWANA Wednesday. Thankfully the store is only a few blocks from the church.

    What a comedy of errors! I hope that's it for the follies and the rest of the week will be perfect.
