You’re Breakin’ My Heart

27 Aug

This morning, I opened the cupboard where I keep the dishes and platters I use for specialplatter occasions, pulled out the box that held a gold trimmed, 16  inch platter Local Daughter had given us for Christmas many years ago – and it slid out of the box and onto the floor!

I could have wept.

I managed to get all of the larger pieces picked up and put into box, and swept up the smaller pieces, which I dumped into the trash can. When I picked up the carton, all of the bloody pieces fell out the other end, so I had to do it all over again, which explains the duct tape, top and bottom.

To say I am distressed is an understatement.  I have no idea what I am going to use for the wedding cake.  A.C. Moore had a 25% off everything coupon in today’s email, so I called my  driver and we went off in search of something. They didn’t have any plates this large, but they had some other goodies, and I managed to spend $18.

    Oh I am so sorry that platter had to attempt flying lessons (not once but twice!) I must applaud you for making it out of AC Moore spending less than $20! That is a feat I am unable to do.

    I only got out of A.C. Moore with that tab because I had that coupon, and I was determined to only get wedding goodies. BTW, I found a sliver of glass on the stove this afternoon. Last night, I turned off all the lights and crawled around on my hands and knees with a flashlight, looking for sparkles, but never thought to look higher than the floor.
