I just have a teeny little question...
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??!??
Let's review the last couple of days shall we?
Sister in law's birthday...great time to discover that we should not make ANYTHING when I feel like I am under pressure. Made a two layer strawberry cake. The top layer? Still too warm when I took it out. The cake ended up looking like a volcano, that erupted and then crumbled everywhere. It was grotesque.
Enter 1 hour later. Stephanie decides to make a smoothie with the leftover strawberries. Except apparently doesn't realize that she hasn't attached the blender on correctly, turns it on, and proceeds to break the blender. Thankfully we just needed to replace the piece that turns the blades, but my mother-in-law uses that blender EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. More than once a day. So now she is without blender. That coupled with my strawberry cake and I feel like an idiot. Thank you family for all coming to witness this momentous occasion. What? You're here for your sister's birthday? Oh, yes. Right. Carry on.
Fast Forward to the next morning. Washing Dishes. Take them out to dry. A bowl falls over the other side of the wall. BROKEN. Really? Seriously? Another broken something? So I'm thinking bad things happen in three's right? Okay, maybe that was the last of my breaking things streak.
Don't worry, it's getting better.
I spot my nephew yesterday with an egg in his hand that I am about to cook with. Except I'm washing the pan that I need. But since I didn't want to clean an egg covered nephew I run to take the egg from him. I take it and proceed to let it slip through my slippy, soapy, fingers, right onto the floor. YAY me!
Fast forward to 30 minutes later when I am washing ALL the dishes. One of the cups is sitting on a Tupperware top. I pull it forward, the glass goes backwards, over the side of the counter and SHATTERS all over the tile floor.
I swear, I am not touching anything else in this house. NOTHING. I'm the bull in the china shop here. I do not know what is the problem. BUT PLEASE. PLEASE. STOP. You are making me look like a clumsy, clumsy, American girl, who can not successfully complete anything..that is without breaking things first. You and your domestic goddess have NOT found each other. But here you will need her. Please seek her out, as your Mother-in-law's house will not survive unless she is found.
Hoping for some grace...Lovingly,
