Did you ever just have ONE OF THOSE DAYS?
You know, despite the best of efforts things just seem to go wrong?
That was my yesterday. I had been scheduled to give a cookie decorating presentation to a new comers club, and I had a grand time prepared. On a typical Monday evening, I have not too much going on - maybe watching The Mob Doctor at nine. But wouldn't you know it - my son's football game last Friday was cancelled due to power outages at the opponents school and was rescheduled for Monday evening. Both events were slated for 7 pm. Missing the game was not an option because it was Alec's senior year last game (sniff), but the presentation was a commitment I made over a month ago and I didn't feel right about ditching at the last minute.
My solution? Do a top of the club mini presentation and get to the football game late. So here is how the presentation went; I ran out of ink in my printer so the cute tutorial I had written was a no go, my photo album of cookies was accidentally left behind at my daughter's orthodontists office (don't ask), I loaded my cookie presentation in the car about an hour before leaving and the cold made my icing colors mottle, and my presentation was a 15 minutes brain dump.
The moral of the story is:
Check the ink cartridge.
Don't lose your photo book.
Never place cookies in a cold car (or a hot one for that matter).
On a happier note, the Blue Devils won 62 - 7.
Very bittersweet watching my baby boy play his last game.
Love you Pooh Bear!
Sorry about that new comers...
