A Bright Side and a Down Side


There are always two sides to every story:

Example 1: Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken

Bright side: I walked in the front door to a house that smelled deliciously of roast chicken.  

I put onions and carrots at the bottom instead of foil.  In my opinion, you absolutely cannot waste an opportunity to cook carrots in chicken drippings.  

Downside: I messed up the slow cooker settings before I left and the chicken was slightly undercooked. 

Bright side: My slow cooker insert did not explode in the oven at 400*

Downside: When Ina saw our dinner she asked what it was and I told her it was a chicken.  She looked at it for a little bit and then I swear I could see the dots connecting and she had a look of horror on her face.  Needless to say, Ina did not eat any chicken for dinner.

Example 2: Teaching Ina to pump lotion into her hands

Bright side: Free back massage

Down side: After my body, her body, and Dan’s feet (ew) were completely saturated with lotion, Ina did not want to stop pumping lotion into her hands

Example 3: Pregnancy Workout Motivation Chart

Bright side: I walked 3 miles on the treadmill yesterday

Downside: My legs hurt the rest of the day.  Time to shop for compression leggings!

Have a great day! <3

  1. Definite downside that Ina wouldn't eat the chicken, however, I couldn't help but laugh at loud when reading about her connecting the dots. Oh my!
