Murphy's law

I proved it..

As mentioned in my last post, yesterday was my hubby's birthday.
He wanted to forget about his birthday and I was all about celebrating it.
Maybe I should have taken his advice.
The birthday bash didn't turn out to what I had planned all day long in my mind.

I planned taco's for dinner (which he requested) and an apple pie.

So, there was lots to prepare to make sure we could eat at a decent time.

I started with the pie crust.
Thinking we could have this cooking while we ate.
Well 2 hours later I was still on the PIE CRUST!!
What?!?!
This was not in my plan!
I was so frustrated.
I wanted it to be perfect.
During all of this I realized that I need to cook the meat and chop some items of food.
Well I had to call in back up and needless to say my husband had to cook his birthday dinner.
So the pie is just not cooperating.
I needed more back up..
This time it was from over the phone from my mother-in-law.

My ever so patient mil, explained some things to try and then before we hung up said "take a deep breath and the crust will work out." (Good thinking, cause I pretty much think I was holding my breath.)

So my plan of eating at a decent time did not happen.

But thanks to my optimistic husband we still had taco's and apple pie.
Which turned out to look like a 2 year old prepared it all by themselves, but was edible.

On days like these where everything seems to fall apart I am grateful for my bed to end the day and for new days to start over.

hang in there! I go through this weekly--except i don't try to make pies weekly. :) We were just talking last night how dinner takes twice as long when i make it. I just think you're sweet for being willing to do all that, and I'm sure if you asked Scott, he'd say it was a great birthday.

Apple pie is delicious no matter what it looks like - you made me hungry just thinking about it!

I say that it doesn't matter what it looks like, as long as it tastes good, right? I mean, you're just going to chew it up anyway. ;) I'm sure Scott appreciated the love and effort!

I love apple pie! That kind of pie's not an easy, quick dessert to make either. Way to go! I bet Scott appreciated it.

Forget the presentation...what did it taste like?
That is what counts.
You are so sweet to remember your hubby's birthday in such a special way!
