A Day Gone Bad

February 6, 2009

I should have known. Some days you just wake up and you know you should have just stayed in bed all day.

It wasn’t so much the things that went wrong; not all that much went terribly wrong. Just a series of lots of little frustrations and setbacks and inconveniences and mildly annoying surprises, all adding up into a super-grumpy afternoon.

Now I’m making dinner — our new favorite, bean burgers and coleslaw. The burgers are not turning out very well — I don’t know what I did differently but they are very moist and not holding together very well. I’m still holding out hope that cooking them well over a low heat will do the trick. Thankfully the coleslaw didn’t let me down — I forgot to add carrot, so it’s just pure, unadulterated green cabbage and delicious dressing. It’s so satisfying.

I’m reading Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping. It’s both incredibly annoying and somewhat interesting. I’m going to finish it, probably tonight, just because I want to see her conclusions at the end. It’s not what I thought it would be, and I’m finding it sort of tedious, irritating, and condescending. But, we’ll see once I get to the end how I ultimately feel about it.

Also, my new owl painting is not the right color (that’s what I get for painting in the bright sun), so it will have to be fixed this weekend. Not a big deal, but annoying nevertheless.

And now, there are some mushy bean burgers waiting to be saved.
