What a day!

Actually my day started last night.  First of all I was exhausted.  Stressed out, and just plain tired.  So I put a pizza in the oven thinking it was gonna be good.  The only thing good about was nothing AND Tiah loved it!  So I decided to make my famous oatmeal cake for work the next day.  So I started creaming the butter and sugar and Tiah came apart and started barking at my mixer.  That shows how much I use it. :))  Anyway, I turned the oven  to 350 degrees and left the batter in the pan on the counter.  I left the room for a moment and when I came back Tiah was lapping at the cake batter.  OH MY GOSH!  Tiah really?  I looked at the batter for a minute and thought well, the heat in the oven will kill any germs.  Shrugging I put it in the oven.  Then before I went to bed, I frosted it.  I started to walk away then thought I should cover the cake so the cats don't lap at the frosting during the night.  So, I took out a clean towel and covered it.  NEXT MORNING:  The alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. as usual and I turned it off.  Woke up at 6:30 a.m. WHEN I'M SUPPOSED TO BE LEAVING!  I threw on clothes, brushed my hair and rushed out to the kitchen.  Let Tiah out of her crate, and fixed her food.  Ready to go I went to pick up the cake and noticed two paw prints across the cake.  I looked to the heavens and just sighed.  When I took off the towel the frosting stuck to the towel.  So I scraped it off and re-frosted the cake.  It was sunken in the middle  from whatever cat walked across it and the frosting looked majorly crappy!  Oh well, I took it to work anyway.  While I was driving I thought to myself, now Susan drive carefully because you never know what else is coming your way.  Made it safely there, and the cake was a success, course I didn't tell anyone that Tiah had lapped at it.  Later, when I had lunch I dripped my burrito all over my blouse.  Ok, why not!  I looked like hell all day and felt like it too.  To the point that I started crying and couldn't stop.  I DON'T CRY, ever.   I think I don't cry because of the medicine I take, but today I did.  I cried so bad that the other secretary, which thankfully is still there until the middle of April, cried with me, with us hugging each other.  Oh boy, what a day!

Oh Susan! You sound super stressed. Sometimes unfortunate happenings do pile up and occur within a very short time. Let's hope all will be normal for a while now!

It'll be ok tomorrow. Tears help to clear the cobwebs of the heart.

The tears have a way of finding a way out. Hope your day brings some sunshine your way.

Oh, Susan! I was first tickled at Tiah--she reminded me of another friend's dog. So glad she didn't get diarrhea or anything like my friend's dog did. What a day...if I was there I would have cried with you, too.
