Domestic Goddess Fail

So, Hubs did not get home til almost nine, at which point I was comfortably ensconced on the couch  in a very big texting convo with one of my best friends, A.S.S. (those are real initials).

Me:  Tell your husband I am so impressed that he and Johnny Mercer went to the same high school! (Woodberry Forest for the curious)

A.S.S.: Who on earth is Johnny Mercer?

Me:  What!  Google him!  I can't believe you are from Georgia and don't know who Johnny Mercer is!  Moon River, Zip Dee Doo Dah, One for my Baby and One More for the Road?

A.S.S.:  OH NO WAY! he went to Woodberry & (her husband) didn't know that?  I'm shocked & feel. . .let down? 


Me: Watching his bio on Turner Classics right now, and wearing a UGA snuggie.  I am eighty years old.

A.S.S.:  O

A.S.S.:  M

A.S.S.:  G

A.S.S.:  And now we're watching it. 

So, due to a funny tummy and the ensuing inability to leave the couch, I had zero desire for dinner.  I made my self some scrambled eggs and toast- pitiful.  However, I made everything else, and all Hubs had to do was throw the marinaded pork chop on the grill.  The grill which was out of gas. He ordered pizza.  I am apparently not a domestic diva.  However, the Johnny Mercer bio is really interesting- it's produced by Clint Eastwood.  It makes me long for the era of big musical numbers, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  Except for the whole Great Depression thing.


  1. Woodberry is such a lovely school.
    You can get college themed snuggies??

  2. Oh the best laid plans! I completely ruined a baking adventure the other day and my poor husband was beside himself as I threw away a huge batch of choc chip cookies... sometimes we just can't win 'em all...

  3. Let's be honest, you're still a domestic diva. Most of us (i.e. me) would have left Hubs to fend for himself at the first sign of illness!

  4. Aw that's the one it goes sometimes!! I don't have a snuggie... do you?

  5. Yes- Hubs got me a Georgia snuggie! It is so cosy- I have to admit I love it!

  6. OMG. I can totally relate to the domestic fail!

    It's the thought that counts! :)

  7. I hope you're feeling better! What a great picture - that dress is so over-the-top (I want one)!

  8. Your blog seriously is just too cute. I LOVE IT! I love your recipes, too! I'm officially following (maybe stalking) now!

  9. I babysit a family who all goes to Woodberry Forest (except the girls, of course). It's gorgeous up there!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
