So, here it is, 12:36 a.m., and I am so bummed out.
My Mom and Stepdad were over tonight for dinner, and we watched the Bears beat the Packers in overtime. It was a good game. However, I kept looking at the clock, wondering when they would leave. And why, you might ask, was I so rudely itching to get them out my door?? Because I’ve been sewing a present — an apron — for my Mom, and I so wanted to get back to work on it!
Well, I put in two hours of productive work on it (and the one I’m making for my mother-in-law, too), and decided that I’d check e-mail, look at my blog admin page, etc. before I wake Fiala up and nurse her before I go to bed. I did that for 20 minutes, happily reading several incoming links where folks used my GFCF gingerbread recipe to make houses of their own… Then it dawned on me:
WE WERE SUPPOSED TO PICK UP OUR GINGERBREAD HOUSE FROM CITY HALL BY FRIDAY LAST WEEK!!!! ACK!!!!!
I am SO BUMMED. I’m going to call the city in the morning… I don’t know how I’m going to break it to my kids that the house was “disposed of,” if, indeed, they kept to their word that all houses not picked up by the end of the work day on the 19th would be done away with.
I so hope they still have it.
