OK, I've been sweet and thankful long enough. It's time for a good rant!
How come I can never do a dinner where everything turns out right? It seems I always have to apologize for something that isn't as good as it should have been. This time, it was the pumpkin pies; I confused the one-cup measure for the half-cup measure and added twice as much sugar as I should have. The pies still tasted OK, but I made a mistake and it bugs me.
And then, how come some things will spill no matter how careful you are? Every time I put sugar in the sugar bowl, I scoop it out ever so carefully but still have to wipe up spilled sugar on the cupboard. It's the same when I scoop coffee from the can into the cannister. There's always some that spills and has to be wiped up.
Maybe it's the frustration of having inanimate objects defy me, or I'm just petty. Maybe I'm complaining about trivial things to avoid bigger things.
Or maybe, I'm simply crabby today.
