Oh the Glamour

Today was a day in retrospect I should have spent in bed, cats sleeping all around, reading O or more, or even People. Everything -- I mean every friggen' thing, was a disaster. Bleach on a new shirt. Water turning brown and staining white towels. Deciding to turn to the kitchen since laundry was such a disaster, I started to make a frittata for dinner. Somehow the zucchini meant to be julienned into it did not make it from the check-out counter into my grocery bag. So I improvise. We'll see how that turns out. Okay, I need chocolate. LOTS of it. Sleuthing through the pantry I spy enough ingredients for a chocolate meringue pie. The chocolate pudding part of it doesn't thicken much, but I pour it in anyway and try to get to chill in the refrigerator (what I really need to do is chill myself). The meringue never rises to peaks but it's halfway there so it gets spread on the pie. Bad judgment all around. It browns and the pie is still as jiggly as jello. Maybe it's the monsoon that never seems to end. Maybe the coons will enjoy it, though I now remember they aren't supposed to eat chocolate, so into the trash it goes.......I should have pulled out a pizza and be done with it. There's always ice cream.....

Bad day. Sounds like you need to pamper yourself.

Ice cream is the answer to so many questions.

Poor dear, I dislike days like this so much and just as often as I have them, wish for a mulligan to try again.

Icecream. Food of the Gods. Yes, lots of chocolate and pizza always fixes things. Tomorrow is another day as my nanna used to say

I say...close your eyes and eat the pie. We've all had these days. Climb back in bed, watch a great movie, go to sleep and wake up tomorrow to the perfect day. I can feel it comin'. Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com

Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed; you're right!
