Sheesh, I feel like an idiot! This isn't really a vent (as it had good consequences), so I decided to start this thread for anyone who has one of those minor "Boy what an idiot I am" moments. I just had one a few minutes ago.
Several days ago, a friend gave me the starter for an Amish Friendship Cake. I have been squishing the bag every day, as it says to do, and on the 7th, I added flour, milk, and sugar, as it said. When I woke up today, I looked at the clock (which has the date on it) and said, "Oh no, it's the 10th. I have to make the cake today." I wasn't quite prepared to do that yet, but you are supposed to bake it on the 10th day.
I kept putting it off, but I finally got everything done that needed to be done first, and I just went in to make the cake. I picked up the bag, and noticed right away that it said to bake it on the 12th. Sheesh! I got 10th day and the 10th of October mixed up in my mind.
The good thing is that I actually got quite a bit done today, and at least I missed it by being two days ahead and not two days behind.
So, have you had any of those "D'oh" moments? Let us know!
