One of those days...

Ever have one of those days.
You know, the one where your three year old doesn't fall asleep during her nap time so instead she falls asleep at 5pm while eating her dinner....then sleeps for THREE hours so now who knows when her bedtime will be...

The kind of day that you see a bowl of mashed potatoes sitting in your fridge and decided to try your hand at frying potato pancakes, only to fill the house with smokey haze.
The kind of day that you are both thankful the smoke detector didn't go off and concerned that the smoke detector didn't go off.
Then when you take the hot pan off of the stove and put it on a wooden trivet....the pan burns the trivet, damaging it.

The baby wakes up...either because of the noise of your frantic "Ooh! Ooh!'s" or because of the smell of smoke.
You put the baby back to bed.
You light some scented candles. You scrub at everything with a greasy film...which is everything!

The baby wakes up and discovers a slippery area on the kitchen floor and laughs as she slips across it successfully, then cries when she falls down, then laughs, then cries.
You wash the slippery floor.
Baby discovers the wet area on the floor and laughs as she slips across it successfully, then cries when she falls down, then laughs, then cries.

You finish washing everything up, make a cup of tea in the microwave. Think about making a grilled cheese but today is not a good day to go near the evil stove. Opt instead for a muffin with jelly.

Yep, those kinds of days are bad.
Even worse would be, being married to a chef who can and will tell you exactly what you did wrong.

But then at least you'll find another use for the frying pan...
