Ten thousand spoons

It's been one of those weeks folks. You know the kind.
No I didn't murder someone in the garage. I guess that is something to be thankful for! I invited some friends over last minute for dinner. I had to run to the store to get spaghetti sauce (running to the store with my three kids takes about an hour minimum). As I was opening the door to unload the groceries...I don't know, the fates just frowned upon me.


A few days later I planned a giant playdate. You know the kind, where you send out an email to everyone you've ever known and tell them about the awesome fountains to play in downtown? You know the ones that are worth the thirty minute ride in the sweltering heat?

The best part of all is that last time I planned a giant playdate I had no carseats so wound up not showing up myself.

I'm glad some people still show up when I plan things!

I must be missing something. What about the 10,000 spoons?

a reference to the song Ironic

"It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife..."

The irony of going to the store specifically for spaghetti sauce only to have it break...

and that of planning an entire outing on a sprinkler park that was closed for repairs.

A little too ironic.

How much sadder life would be without a camera to record the disasters and laugh about them!
