Change of Plan

Posted by Jamie

Yesterday I was so disappointed. I mixed up the batter to make Nathan some cup cakes only to discover I had no muffin liners.  I couldn't find my wallet but I thought that's no big deal I can grab cash from our stash.  Then I got both boys ready for our trip only to realize that my keys and wallet were in the diaper bag which we left in High river.  I was so upset that I had no way to buy the things I needed to make Nathan's birthday special. After I got over my emotions I got up got to work made a nice supper and planned to run my errands when Nathan got home.  I was unable to buy him the gift I had planned on getting him but I was able to make him a cup cake cake, a lunch prepared with love and breakfast with his favourite kind of orange juice.  I even bought him Fresca which he loves but I think is a very unhealthy drink so he hardly ever gets it. We're going to spend a quite evening in and I'll prepare him a big piece of steak and sometime this week I'll surprise him with a gift.  I always get so upset when things don't work out according to the perfect little plan in my head but I'm starting to learn that when my plans fall through it doesn't ruin things, it just allows me to become more creative. I love my husband and I hope he has a wonderful birthday!
