The butter problem didn't matter too much though because 1) my phone rang, 2) I multi tasked and tried to peel potatoes while baking and talking and the peeler slipped - ouch! and then 3) we got involved looking at the potato that looked like a butt.
The smoke reminded me that I forgot to set the oven timer.
*Know what makes me sad? People who say, "Of course we budgeted for Christmas. Didn't you?"
*Know what makes me sadder? The dad who told me that he has $100,000 in his daughter's college fund. She just began high school.
*Know what makes me saddest? That Weight Watchers works better than any diet pill. That one really could make me cry.
*Do any of you know where I safely stored the decal I bought for Christmas decorating that says something about such a big miracle in such a small baby?? I'm hoping to find it before we take the decorations down.
*My youngest son's teacher is doing something quite lovely in class. Each child has a secret pal this month. They are to look for positive ways to enhance the other child's day and then next week, each child will write a letter of affirmation to his or her secret pal. Wouldn't you like to be in that class?
*On a similar note, my extremely strong-will child was destroying my day this week. Everything was an argument and he wasn't about to give in at all on anything. A very nice woman watched my child assert his will aggressively, and then the woman turned to me and said, "You know, don't you, that this doesn't mean you're a bad mom?" My heart was warmed by her spontaneous affirmation.
Has anyone warmed your heart this week ?
