I had this brilliant idea to bake a Red Velvet cake just because we don’t have anything sweet around the house. I didn’t want to go through the hassle of making the whole thing from scratch so I actually went out and got a Better Crocker mix- better be safe than sorry, I thought.
Except I was oh so very sorry when the cake stuck to the pan and I had to throw almost half of it away as it crumbled into tiny cake pieces. And of course, it completely spread around the whole kitchen leaving little flecks of red cake everywhere.
So I cleaned it, like any normal person would do.
At least what was left of the cake tasted semi-good.
I did not expect another mishap coming my way when it was time for lunch. I thought I’d do something healthy and filling for a change and make some marinated chicken and a side of qunioa. Should be easy, I thought.
I was (half) wrong again!
While the chicken was absolutely easy to do, I ended up spilling tiny seeds all over as I tried to undo the packaging that contained the qunioa. And if you have ever dealth with it you know how tiny it is and how impossible it can be to clean it up.
Thankfully, I managed to salvage what I could from what was spilled and brought in the vaccuum cleaner to take care of the mess. At that point, the headache kicked in badly and I just wanted to cry.
It’s been a tough few weeks for no apparent reason and today just made it all worse.
But at least I did not go hungry and the end product was good and delicious. Still, I can’t help but feel like I’ve failed at trying to manage a house at the same time as being a full time employee.
