Oops Day

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I am declaring yesterday, December 14th 2009, as Oops Day!

Amy sent me a text message letting me know that Fred told her that we get in Wednesday night and that she wanted to let us know that he said that since I told her we get in Tuesday night and she didn't want us to be stranded at the airport. I reply back something to the effect of Silly Fred, I will call him and let him know. I went out to the garage to tell Brian about Amy's text. Brian then got online to check our itinerary and it turns out that we do in fact leave Wednesday and not Tuesday..... OOPS!!

I bought some white candles to finish off my Christmas decorating on our mantle above the couch. I had them all light and they looked so pretty for our "last night home". We snuggled up and watched The Biggest Loser finale while we ate our Sonic and Taco Bell because there is no food in the house because we were leaving "the next day" :). Then, Kenley woke up so I went to get her and as I turned to the couch I gasped as I saw that my pretty white pillar candle had in fact drizzled wax all over the side of our couch and left a burn mark too...... Big OOPS!!

This one is really a oops from last year's Christmas trip to Washington.
Last night Brian got our suitcases down from the attic. One came down just fine, the other came down covered in mold.... YUCK! Its totally my oops though because last year at this time I was obsessed with Amish Friendship Bread. I, for some reason, thought it would be a good idea to pack some and take it back to Washington to share with my friends there. I even packed it in a Tupperware so that it wouldn't leak. I didn't factor in the whole air expanding during flight thing or even the whole yeast expanding thing. So we finally get to Brian's parents house at like 2 in the morning and open up our suitcases and everything in my suitcase is covered in yeast-y friendship bread batter. So apparently I didn't clean the suitcase as well as I thought I had..... OOPS!

So today will be filled with scraping wax off of our couch and going to buy a new suitcase. The good news though is that Brian starts leave today since we were supposed to leave today! So I get to spend some extra time with him before we head to Washington!

Happy Oops Day to you!
