Today Was Better Than The Epic Suckage Of Yesterday.

YAY!  I’m basically completely recovered from yesterday.  Junior’s doing just fine too.  YAY!

No Halloween costume for Junior this year now that he’s almost a big 16 year old.  Plus, he’s oblivious to being dressed up for Halloween anyway, so I figured, why waste the energy. 🙂

But Mini Mock and Mockdog dressed up:

And I HANDCRAFTED this t-shirt to wear to work today:

I WAS THE INTERNET for Halloween.  🙂

The handcrafting thing was a big deal, because you know how NOT domestic I am, and this required IRONING.  I am kind of in a perpetual state of amazement that I even own an iron, frankly.  So this was a big deal.

But wait.  It gets even better.  When I got to work, we were having a Halloween pitch-in, and I was asked to help out, which I was glad to do, but then I was put on pancake making duty – the part where you have to scoop pancake goo and put it on a griddle and then turn them over at the right time and then know when they’re done.  I was absolutely mortified, because I have never made pancakes in my entire life.  So one of the nice ladies I work with showed me what to do, and you guys, I MADE A CRAPLOAD OF PANCAKES.  And they were good and everything!

My co-workers seemed to be both puzzled and amused that I had such pride about this.  But it was a BIG DEAL for me to be that domestic.

I can’t wait for Mr. Mock to read this, because I guarantee you when he does, he will look at me and say, “You made pancakes?  I don’t even know you anymore.”

Anyway, now I’m home with trick or treat door opening duty, and Mr. Mock and Mini Mock and MockDog are out trick or treating in Bunny’s neighborhood.  And you know what?  It’s been a perfectly normal, nice, not sucky day today.

    Good show on a better day. Does this mean the next Meet ‘n’ Greet will have a pancake breakfast instead of being catered?

    Let’s not get crazy, Formerly Jim. I liked the novelty of it all, but don’t want to make it a habit. 😉

    Happy Halloween and I really like your costumes.

  • Mr. Mock

    This is a trick for Halloween. There is no way she had anything to do with making pancakes.

    Wait, what? You’ve NEVER made pancakes? As in EVER? Do you have some sort of pancake-related trauma in your past? Because that might explain it. Otherwise, that strikes me as a little odd.

    I’m so glad Junior is out of the hospital and doing well!

    And I totally get it on the pancakes … I didn’t learn to make them until I was about 35. My dad was a chef in a very prestigious restaurant, too …

    We are kindred spirits Mock. I too, am not domestic, but I keep trying. I don’t know why. My husband said Tuesday night I should just face it and not be in the kitchen! But I recently made a pancake and it was edible, and also a quesadilla, which I posted on Facebook!

    I am so happy that yesterday was better for both you and Jr.

    Tickled for all of you that Junior is doing well, and LOVE the shirt!
