I have recently posted a few of my homemaking blunders as funny homemaking tips on my Facebook status updates. I was attempting to be humorous, but was pleasantly surprised when I received comments from my friends admitting the same has happened to them.
This got me thinking, and so I'm starting a new series or random chain of posts with my homemaking blunders. I am hoping to help the poor perfectionists relax and take a deep breath and laugh at their mistakes. I have a feeling we all do the same silly things. Now we can all sit back and laugh together.
Instead of going around and bragging about how much we get done and well we do it, let's open the secret, dark, throw it in there and never mention it closet of our homemaking errors. Be brave, we can do this.
I'll take one for the team and confess mine, starting with 2 that I have from the last few days.
Kimmie's Homemaking Tips
Tip #149: Be sure to turn on the correct burner while waiting for your water to boil.
Blunder: I placed my sauce pan with water on the stove to boil. I turned the burner on high, covered the pot and left to go fold some laundry. 10 minutes later I remembered the pot I put on the stove. I darted for the kitchen expecting to find all the water gone. Instead I saw a gleaming red circle without a pot on it. Of course, right next to the crimson ring was my pot, full of cold water. This gives a whole new outlook to "a watched pot never boils".
