Turkey day disaster
My oven broke about two hours before my family and guests arrived. Thankfully, my mother-in-law was cooking the turkey and I had only the side dishes to prepare or warm. I found a neighbor who was going out to eat and asked to borrow her oven. From there, things only got worse. After putting my side dishes in her oven, I returned to take them out but discovered I had locked myself out of her home. I had to ask my guests to help me break through her garage door. But the day got worse. I dropped the hot green bean casserole on her floor and managed to slip on it as I wiped it up.
By the time I put whatever food I had left on the dinner table, my family was starved and most of the food was cold. What I realized from the fiasco is I am no Martha Stewart but the truth is, it doesn't matter. I am thankful I have a job I love, a family I love and a sense of humor.
