Today, I had a very weird experience with a Totinos pizza, in that, it somehow managed to "rack jump" as I was extracting it from a very hot oven. That very round pizza, placed on my middle rack, ended up shimmy-ing it's way to the bottom rack, between the rather narrow rack grates, as I wrestled it with a spatula. I haven't seen those kind of moves from a flat, inanimate object before, so it was kind of impressive and less annoying. But alas, it had to be ripped apart and pulled out in three separate pieces.
It did not end well for the pizza.
And that just says to me that contorting into rather awkward spaces ends in dismemberment. I love it when food speaks real, practical and applicable truths.
Pizza, you are not the dumbest of the foods.
And then, once Big J & L left on the magic school bus, Little J and I embarked on the LONGEST game of Hi-Ho-Cheerio, in history. I'm not kidding, it took at least 10 minutes for me to keep any of my cheeries off the tree, and the cruel cherry-fate-God made me spill them, continuously. And then I learned that lifeless, children's board games can have a spiteful temperament.
Which maybe I should have known, if you'll recall my Candyland debacle.
All this to say, that it has been one of the most and least productive days I can remember. Because the house is a D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R with no signs of recovery, and I am juggling at least 5 major projects. But they will be done by bedtime tonight, or by 8 a.m. tomorrow morning. Whichever comes first.
I am not a good multi-tasker. Not because I can't get it done, but because it FREAKS me out to have a lot of different balls in the air. I am paranoid about forgetting something. This paranoia came to a head tonight, when I couldn't locate G's homework. Sidenote: We get spelling homework sent home every week on Monday, due on Friday. Bad, BAD plan for me. We are constantly searching for that stinkin' paper, and it is always returned with some sort of food stain.
Anyway. Homework found. Sanity in check.
By the end of this day I will finish a freelance writing project, bake two loaves of bread, cut a crap load of monster parts out, figure out how to decorate a teacher snack bar, potentially paint some pumpkins for a teacher snack bar, finish my bible study (okay, I haven't started this one). At some point, I also need to find Big Bird (L's Halloween costume) some form of orange leggings.
Oh, and I blogged.
Peace out. Tomorrow evening will greet me with a fat glass of wine.
