Recipe for Insanity

Last evening would have been the perfect evening for that whole human cloning thing to have worked out.
.
I'm not pro-cloning, mind you, but last night it seemed like a good idea.
.
Meetings, sewing projects, cake baking and food boothing do not, and should not mix. Mix in a son who needs his hunting pants hemmed NOW and a daughter who needs picked up from babysitting and it becomes a recipe for insanity.
.
Fortunately for me, my husband took on the baseball food booth and the daughter pick up. Leaving me with, well, the rest.
.
The meeting was easy breezy, the cake mixed up in a jiff, which left the sewing project. What should have been an easy little project turned into a frustrating mess. I purchased a pattern and the fabric to make it with, but apparently this pattern was from the new sewing line Vague (get it? Like Vogue, but, well, vague). The detailed instructions were lost on me, causing me to deviate from the step by step pictures and just make it up as I went along. Fun. Lots of fun. My heart ceased to be in it when the clock struck 11:00.
.
My son would like me to point out that his hunting pants are still not hemmed. Apparently there is a gobbler out there who has a date with destiny tomorrow morning. Also, I was informed that hunting is impossible with rolled up pants. Methinks the boy needs to learn to sew.
.
So, as I sit here the next morning, the required cake is in the refrigerator, the sewing project is all but completed, my kitchen looks like it has been bombed, and I am bone tired. It's Friday, though and that has to count for something!
.
Happy Friday, everyone!

All you have to do is watch Multiplicity to see that cloning is not a good idea. Really.

I hear you. Fridays can be killer days after a busy week. I usually have a little cry on Friday night, and then I'm fine.

I hope you can sit back and do nothing tomorrow. ((Hugs))
