so it's 3 a.m. ....
why can't i sleep?
wish i knew. i've been having trouble sleeping lately; my head hurts, so it's hard to sleep (makes sense, right?) anyways, this is the end-all, be-all of can't sleep nights. usually it just takes me an hour or so to fall asleep, and then i wake up every 2 or 3 hours. not great, but liveable, especially because it's not like i have to go to school or work in the morning. however, just not being able to sleep? lame.
i will tell you a story or three about emily in the kitchen.
#1 - the angel food cake: i promise, i followed ALL the directions on the box. i still don't know what went wrong. what i DO know is that it overflowed while cooking. this means that dinner (aka disaster #2) just helped to burn on the remains of the angel food cake. b/c was i feeling up to scrubbing the oven? um, no.
#2 - dinner saturday night was pizza; we made it freezer cooking, and it should have taken 15 minutes to cook. HA~! hahahaha. no. it took about an hour. this was (of course) at a time when my husband was needing to leave. we made it in the nick of time, him shoveling pizza in at the last possible minute.
which brings us to kitchen disaster #3 (please remember, this is only from the past weekend)
#3 - tonight, while making pad thai (don't get too excited, it was a boxed mix) i had done everything right. i was pretty impressed with myself. the last thing to do was put the sauce in. soooo clever me, i use a knife to open the plastic pouch, cutting my index finger at the same time. can you say OUCH? it was unpleasant. i had spencer come in and finish dinner while i applied pressure and put a band-aid on it. (don't you like how 'applied pressure' makes it seem like a legitimate wound? yeah, it's not) -- it felt a lot worse than it was.
in any case.......when does it get better? whew. this cooking stuff. not only hard work, but dangerous too. ;)
