I have determined that these two words do not and will not ever go hand-in-hand in this house. Absolutely impossible.
The combination of these three reasons make it impossible for me to complete any task "quick and easy" and for that I wish these words did not ever become associated with one another.
Don't believe me? An example from this evening:
I started dinner and was about to add spaghetti noodles to the pot of boiling water, and what did I find? No NOODLES! The spaghetti sauce was already ready (home made, people, so it takes time) and I was not going to change our plans. I don't have the option of asking Cody to pick some up as he is still states away. So....I tell the kiddos to find a pair of shoe and get in the van. We only need noodles - this will be "quick and easy." It truly was pretty painless until checkout. The cashier had to come to the lane and over ride the transaction not once but three times because the kids were playing with the bags and changing the weight of the bags and making the machine accuse me of basically stealing. Touchy computers!!! And, then, Kinsley had to hug Eligh so tight he had to fall into the register, bust his ear, and start screaming.
Good bye "quick and easy" please quit taunting me.
