Last night, I came back from music practice at church, set my folders down in the corner of the living room, hung up my sweater, then made my way back to the kitchen in order to make dinner.
Salmon was on the menu. Baked with soy sauce and brown sugar, then served with frozen peas and fresh butternut squash, it promised to be a hearty meal that came together quickly. And at the end of a long day, that’s my kind of entrée! 🙂
So I spun around my Lazy Susan to pull out a few pots and pans…. and instead found eggs.
“Hmmm, Nate,” I called to my husband who was working on the computer. I laughed, grabbed the eggs, and poked my head into the living room. “You put the eggs in the Lazy Susan! And now they’ve all gone bad!”
Nate looked puzzled, shook his head and said, “I didn’t think I did that. I think you might have.”
“You know,” I replied, staring at the eggs in my hand. “This does seem like something I’d do.”
Then we both burst into laughter at how quickly I had taken the blame… or at least how quickly I had realized that I tend to do absent-minded things like this a little too frequently. (What can I say, I have a lot on my mind these days).
But you know, this really is the dilemma a girl such as myself faces on a daily basis. Because it’s just me and Nate right now. So if he didn’t do it, we’re pretty sure that I did. After all, you can only blame so many things on your cats.
Oh, well, I guess I’ll have to be more careful in the future. 😉
Any fun weekend plans? I’m going to Whole Foods and Trader Joes with my sister tomorrow. Can’t wait!!
