Update: How Did You Do?

So, how was No Whining Wednesday? You can be honest. I will.

Before I do, for those new to NWW, see last weeks post HERE to understand what it is, what it’s about and how to participate. Tomorrow is our second week of the newest feature to The PBS Blog and I’m going to try to do better because I was a mess last week. I failed miserably.

AND, I didn’t even have any quarters.

You know what, I don’t even want to talk about it.

OK, OK, I will. But only because I like you. What had happend was…

I woke up that morning to a situation that brought me to tears. Not just tears but TEARS. I was balling. Here I was balled up on the floor praying away the anguish on the first day, but that’s not all.

Eventually, I decided to be a big girl about it and clean myself up because I remembered that it was No Whining Wednesday and I wasn’t supposed to be whining, let alone crying. I decided I would make pancakes before I got to work. Usually I’d just grab a cup of coffee or maybe some fruit so I was treating myself. So I thought.

This is Tuesday so I’ll get all my complaining out the way now. I hate…OK, hate is such a strong word… I dislike very much the taste of pancakes using oil. I like to use butter instead. For the twenty-nine years I’ve been on this Earth, my pancakes have always done well using butter. Except last Wednesday. They started to stick. I changed pans, thinking it was because I wasn’t using the cast iron skillet. It started to stick again and not just a little bit but like crazy. So, I started again using oil. It started to stick again. I should mention my sister in law is visiting. My plan was to make us a nice breakfast this morning (since I admittedly let her feign for herself the first night.)

My sister-in-law, awakened by the noises coming from the kitchen, walks in.

“Don’t worry, I’ll still eat them. I don’t really know how to make pancakes myself.”

“But I do! I do know how to make pancakes! Uhhgg.”

After giving the pan (the butter and the oil) a piece of my mind I remembered this was No Whining Wednesday (something I started) and that I was definitely not winning.

At the end of it all the pans started to behave themselves and my pancakes and turkey bacon came out lovely.

The rest of the day smoothed itself out and all of my locs are still here. By the end of the day Wednesday all was well. I think I even had enough time left in the day to watch a chick flick (which turned out to be whack but I didn’t complain. I’d already done enough of that.) As I think back on it now it didn’t turn out so bad (maybe I just needed to write it out?) but I definitely had a rocky start.

So, how about you? I know you did better than me.

  1. I so sympathize with you over the whole pancake incident. I use butter, my Mum used butter etc. I have my Grandmother’s cast iron skillet pan and it is known as the pancake pan but can I make pancakes in it. Oh no, oh no, no and no. So even though it was Wednesday you are allowed to vent off steam because of the horrible morning you had. Btw, what is your recipe for pancakes?

    1. Yea, butter rocks. My recipe? Nothing special. The pancake mix, eggs, and milk. If I don’t have any milk I use water. And of course, butter, either in the spray can or sliced from the stick. I top the finished panny cakes with sliced bananas if I have some and whipped cream.

  2. I had a 6:30 a.m. pick up for a TV appearance to promote my book (a children’s picture book and Caribbean fairytale, With Grace). As a night owl who’s been trying to regulate her sleep, early mornings are torture, especially on 3 hours sleep and no coffee. But I reminded myself that I was fortunate that my national station wanted to talk to me about my book, put on my best face, showed up, and even sang the song in the book on live TV…then I came home and crashed. Which means, Project Regulate Sleep needs a reboot…but no whining.
