Today is my husband’s birthday, so I’ll be baking him a cake. I baked him a completely last-minute cake from a mix on Saturday for his birthday party (how the hell did I forget a cake?), and I think he would be happy to skip it today, but we’ll be having dinner tonight with the kids so this cake is really for them.
I wanted to make a homemade cake and homemade frosting, since this one won’t be last-minute. He said that a homemade cake is fine, but that the store-bought frosting is non-negotiable. And I hate to admit it, but no frosting I’ve ever made tasted as good as Duncan Hines’ chocolate frosting. If you have any recipes that taste like that, please send them my way!
Next up is trying to straighten the shoe shelf. Apparently I’m trying to set a record for the number of Container Store shelves stacked on top of each other, and it’s leaning pretty badly. My husband says the solution is to have less shoes. Isn’t he adorable?
The rest of the day will be spent trying to get a handle on the laundry situation. It’s bad. All of those bins are dirty laundry, plus everything on the floor, plus on the floor in the next room!
And even the stuff that’s clean isn’t put away.
Plus, you know, actual work. Sigh. Monday. Busy. Nothing exciting. You?
