I had my first daughter on a Friday the 13th. She was born at 3:13 in the morning and weighed 8.13 oz. I am 5.2 and was about 105 when I got pregnant, needless to say not a good delivery.
I got up this morning and went down to read blogs before starting my day. Then I remembered that I needed to put eye drops in so I stopped my comment on Mysti's blog and ran upstairs to do this. The drops have to be administered 5 minutes apart, so why not start a sink full of hot water for the dishes, okay that is done now I should put those two full chickens on to boil for the chicken salad I need for Sunday, oh yeah I also need to make an orange lemon cake (three layer) for the same party on Sunday, turn on stove and throw batter together, go put eye drop in. Gee, I had better at least finish the cake and get it into the oven so the batter does not release all of its gas, okay since it take 3 batches I now have enough batter left for 12 cupcakes, where are those darling daisy cupcake wrappers I bought for a quarter? dug those out, filled tins put in oven. Chickens are boiling away, now there is only 15 minutes left on first cake , I don't want to burn cake so I mix up my favorite sugar cookie dough to make daisy cookies to match cake, put those in the fridge to cool , pull out first cake, finish dishes, pull out other two layers, clean counter tops, put away baking supplies, pull out cupcakes, Now I have spent 1 hour and 15 minutes on a 5 minute errand. Do you see why I am crazy?
Came back and commented on Mysti's blog, it is a fun short questionnaire go there!
Out My Window: It is supposed to cool down today by about 10 degrees, so 90 sounds wonderful!
It is just one day at a time here financially. Hubby was with me at the store last night and asked why I wasn't paying in cash. He just doesn't get it. The shop has been very slow this month, we just went on vacation, we have plumbers to pay. I use all my sewing money this week to finish paying the house payment. We have to be able to pay it without the cleaning check, so we have a lot less money. But when you never have to earn the money for anything extra you don't see this. I have to earn any extra money coming in. If there is a disaster, ei. surgery, repairs, vacations ME! I wanted to slap him.....
Have a great and productive day!
