The Sunday Confessional here at Home Ec 101 is a chance to quit hiding our imperfections. No one is perfect, no matter what the media wants us to believe. I have a few this week.
I went to bed early last night, determined to catch up on sleep. Yes, I know you can’t actually catch up, but I’ve been running on too little for a few weeks now. I completely forgot about setting the clocks back until I noticed people fussing on Twitter this morning.
Nice. Actually, it was REALLY nice.
I completely forgot to do Retro Saturday. Oops. Also, I didn’t even think about it until I was halfway through this post.
If you didn’t change your smoke alarm batteries in October, please do so today. Or you can spend the next few weeks wandering from room to room trying to figure out which one is chirping every so often. -This is not the recommended method.-
Did you know you’re supposed to vacuum smoke alarms monthly?
Did you know that smoke alarms are happy hiding places for small spiders?
Did you know that spiders can set off smoke alarms?
Yeah, I missed the small print on the underside of our smoke alarms, too.
Finally, there is a giant stock pot of potato salad in my garage refrigerator that is going to be thrown out. I was told to make enough potato salad for 60 people. Just as an FYI if you’re ever asked to bring potato salad for sixty, that’s tripling the potato salad recipe) It was pretty chilly so turnout was light and most of the people at the event were kids, who as a rule don’t touch potato salad. So two-thirds of it was left untouched. I like potato salad, but there is no way I’m going to eat twelve pounds of it over the next few days. Someone help me not feel guilty.
How about you? What do you have to get off your chest?
