I can’t believe how many “fails” I’ve experienced this week. Okay, maybe in the last TWO days. After a frosting disaster, a paperwork overload, buying shampoo instead of conditioner and cleaning out the refrigerator for the first time in months…yeah, it’s been a pretty insane week. I won’t bother mentioning that I gathered TWO bags of garbage from the refrigerator. Ahem.
- Frosting Disaster: I borrowed my sister’s cake decorating tools to frost cupcakes for Ridley’s birthday party. The first fail was actually a discovery that no matter how much red food coloring you put into frosting it will not turn red and blue does not turn really blue, it’s more like pastel blue. Ick. Trust me. I used practically the entire bottles of food coloring and the cupcakes were pink and light blue instead of red and dark blue.
- The second fail occurred because I forgot that I was out of heavy duty ziploc baggies. I resorted to using the cheapies that I did have. I attached the tip, loaded the bag with icing and began frosting the cupcakes. Needless to say, the baggie sprung a leak, (or several) which I tried to fix with scotch tape. Ha! The disaster only got worse! I finally gave up on the pink and tried a new bag of blue, and the same thing happened. I would have taken a picture, but my hands were covered in the grossest, stickest mess ever!
- Paperwork Overload: Since it’s January and we always try to get our taxes done early, I decided that I should go through all our paperwork. Not a bad thought, right? Well, I failed to remember that I hadn’t kept everything filed all year long, so I had one massive box of stuff to go through. It was bad…really, bad. Finally after 2 days, one huge bag of garbage and many file folders later, all the paperwork, receipts and tax stuff is well organized. I’m promising myself that I will keep up with it this year to avoid another fail!
