Murphy's Law: love, friday edition

If you spend your son's entire naptime preparing a nutritious meal for your family because the meals have been crap this week, and even venture to actually *clean* the oven before using it for the millionth stinky time, said oven WILL crap out on you.

The vegetable pie WILL sit in the oven for almost a half hour and remain cold.

The repair people WILL tell you that they can't come until Monday.

The only silver lining is my lovely neighbor, Noreen, who is now baking our vegetable pie, an hour and a half later than Jackson's normal dinnertime. She is a saintly neighbor and we feel very lucky to live across the street from her and her husband, Mike.

Other than that, Murphy sucks.

Gah, that Murphy. What a ..... well, shall we say "not a nice man" (in the interests of propriety). Nice neighbors are the best though.

yep, sure does. At least you will still be able to eat your dinner. It is good to have nice neighbors.

i miss nice neighbors. Sorry about the oven, it's never fun when big apliances poop out.

Chris said...

Well, I hope it was tasty when it finally returned from your neighbor!

Can someti8mes use electric frypan as oven - but neighbours are better! Remember it's not just Murphy's Law (anything that can go wrong will go wrong) but it's Finagle's Corollary that really gets you - At the worst possible time under the worst possible circumstances - hence the oven going just after you'd sung its praises! (love the pie - will cook this week!)
