Hey Thursday-- Quit acting like Monday!

What a day.

I had my Mobile Meals route this morning with my mom.   The direction sheet had five (yes 5!) navigational errors. By the grace of GPS we managed to get through the route...only about 30 minutes later than normal.
The instruction sheet had other errors, too--not just with directions.  They told me one client was blind.  Okay.  So I take him his food...carefully describe his meal and everything being delivered only for him to blankly stare at me and LOUDLY yell that he was partially deaf and didn't hear a thing I said.  It was then that I noticed he was NOT blind. Awkward-- but at least he didn't hear me babble on and on.....

A few houses later I was told the client was hard of hearing and I needed to speak loudly.  So I go to the door and boom in my loudest voice....only to be asked to keep my voice down that I was scaring his cats. Yeah... I think they got that note attached to the wrong address.

So..after Mobile Meals, I make my way through work.  At 5:00 I put on the batch of chicken and dumplings I made last night.  While it started to heat I went to get the swiffer...and the phone rang...all hell broke loose on a project at work.  About 20 minutes later I get off the call and smell this:
Scorched my dadburn chicken and dumplings!  All that work slow cooking the chicken -- cleaned , cooked, cubed...even made my own chicken stock and damn if I didn't burn it while reheating it.  I may have ruined my pan, too.  And the burned smell...ughh!

I think it is time to call it a day.....and have sandwiches for dinner....and break out a Lush bath bomb and a glass of wine.
