DId I Mention I Dropped the Damn Pie?

Sorry for the Dan Snyder post...but, alas, I digress....

Things I did today:

1. Made Thanksgiving Dinner. Now my whole house smells like turkey. Yum
2. I just dropped a whole pumpkin pie out of the 'fridge...dangit. Well, we have cherry. [In my defense I was trying to arrange leftovers and well...splat.]
3. Champange is a good thing. Especially now.

because....

4. I completely [how the hell do you spell that?] lost my patience with my my lil' sister friend and that wasn't right.
5. And I dropped the pie.

and....

6. I miss Rich and Amy. And I am mad about that. Are you allowed to be mad because someone dies? Well I am.

sometimes....

7. Dropping a pie is okay. Today it just sucked. But I guess I have the cherry :)

then again....

8. I have more leftovers than should be allowed [how come I cook in quantities of 12? There are 4 of us now] and where the heck are all of you? Don't you LIKE turkey, oyster dressing, gravy etc?

still....

9. I promised the kids pumpkin pie for breakfast. Hey! That is a damn good breakfast, think about it. With apple cider. Cherry isn't going to work.

I guess I will have to make them oatmeal. With cherry pie topping :) hee.

finally.....

10. Thanks for the kind thoughts and words. I am at a loss right now and I guess dropping a pie should be the least of my worries, but it seems to be a metaphor for my life right now.

And y'know what? Can the whole world just go ahead and F%^& head cheese now?

1. I wish I could have come for Turkey. We had eggs and French Toast sticks - from a bag. I took a nap and woke up at 6, dinner needed to be a quick fix.

2. As for dropping a pie. I would be pissed because pumpkin pie for breakfast is awesome. I don't even use a fork or plate, I just eat it like it is a piece of pizza.

3. Life sucks sometimes. Sorry your getting crap thrown at you right now. Hang in there.

Amy BREAKFAST for DINNER ROCKS the World. [Ask my kids - and frozen waffles - oh yeah!]

Ask me about cold hot dog night. A very proud moment in my Mom skillz night.

Thanks for the kindness. I am running around lost right now and the pie? Just arghhhh.

If Denny had come for dinner, there would have been no leftovers. Except for the oyster dressing; oysters are his one and only food allergy.

Saw pumpkin pie at the grocery store yesterday so now I'm jonesing for one. Maybe I can sweet talk Denny into making his third pie in as many weeks, since the others got left at someone else's house. Hmmm.....

P.S. the word verification is "squili", which is precisely how I've been feeling lately.

I would have picked it up and ate it the way I have been lately.

Marni said...

Don't like dressing but I would've eaten the rest of it... fo sho...

Hugs.

I had to burst out laughing at the last miniature text.

I want Thanksgiving now. And someone else to clean and cook it all for me. Is that selfish? It's how I feel though.

You are totally allowed to be mad when someone dies. If you're not "allowed" well whoever is denying you that should be slapped. Hard. I've spent much of my life angry over unfair deaths. It looks like I'll continue that way for a long, long time. Tough to anyone who says I can't, because I am.

I completely get the whole "this should be the least of my worries, but it's what I'm focusing on" because you know what? A lot of times it's easier/better to focus on the pie instead of the pain. It just is. I have flipped out over minor issues when all the major ones are going wrong. Why? Because it's easier to get angry when there are no eggs left and fix it, than it is to get angry that someone close to you is gone just like that, because there's no fixing it. I prefer to maintain some semablance of control over my life.

Hugs to you. And we all lose patience with people, sometimes they deserve it and sometimes they don't, but it happens either way.

1. I'm sorry you dropped the pie. Even though there are more important things, when you drop an actual pie, it is the MOST IMPORTANT thing in the world right that minute.
2. I have quickly picked up dropped food, pushed it back into a rough facsimile of the shape it used to be and served it.
3. Thank the good lord you had champagne.
4. You used "than" correctly. You rock.

That sucks about the pie. Well, that sucks about your friend too.

Thanksgiving in September? and then again in November? Too much effort for me I'm afraid.

Thanks for joining up with me on my journey.
