Balancing Act

I'm trying to cook a turkey for dinner and it's almost comical.

Apparently two days isn't long enough to defrost a turkey in the fridge, who knew? I called my dad and asked he said you can cook it frozen just longer, so our dinner will be ready only a few hours after the girl's bedtime. I had my leg up on the counter trying to get the plastic thing off of the legs. Then just said oh, well, I hope it's some freak plastic that doesn't melt at 325 degrees. I'm counting on it anyway.

I'm watching a Barbie fashion movie with Riley for about the eigth time in the past three days. There are zombie peas and they use the word "redonkulous." Someone save me.

I'm trying to learn to balance everything. A new semester has begun and I'm trying to get in the swing of things, which is especially challenging with starting a new job in the mix of it all. 

We went to my sister in law's mom's birthday last night at a roller skating rink, it was at a place in the area that I didn't even know existed. When I asked the owner how long they have been there he started this weird spiel about how Obama has destroyed our economy and is trying to bankrupt the country and built it back as a socialist society. I said uh, thanks for my skates and went on my way. Then my sister in law broke her arm while standing in skates.

It was an unusual evening.

I'm excited to blog about this really inspirational story that happened today, but it will have to wait till after I figure out dinner since my turkey isn't working out. 


  1. That's hillarious about the turkey. I would have thought that 2 days would be plenty. Thankfully my husband always does the turkey.

  2. This was a hilarious and bizarre post. My favorite part, "There are zombie peas and they use the word 'redonkulous.'" Awesome.

    Was the party at Jimmie's Rollderdome? Everytime we pass that place Mom gets all nostalgic for her younger days. Apparently she was the Rollerdome Queen!

  3. I have laughed so hard Im in tears! Hopefully today will be a better day! I cooked a ham one time and when I took it out of the oven I saw a plastic thing that said remove before cooking. OOPS! :)
