Murphy Mess

I didn't sleep much last night, didn't even lie down until after 3:30, lay awake for long time, and was awake again before 7:30.

For breakfast, I made myself a pancake which I intended to serve with apricot syrup. It was a new bottle and the top was tight; I couldn't get it off by hand so I used a nut-cracker to loosen it and set it aside. After the pancake was on the dish, I grabbed the syrup, and since it was new, I gave it a shake. I'd neglected to retighten the top and it exploded all over and made a huge mess.

These things happen to me much more frequently when I haven't slept, and I am also more easily upset when I haven't slept--double jeopardy! Darn Murphy.

Uh oh. I hate things like that.

Me too! I had JUST put on a bran span clean apron (good thing) and it pooled in the pockets and ran down the front and got in my hair etc. Took a lot of washing up.

You poor dear! Good thing Biker Buddy made dinner tonight, I doubt you feel like spending much time in the kitchen immediately after that.
