Miracle of the egg

I'll post pictures from Anna's B-day party later, but I just wanted to share with you a little miracle that happened this week. I am a little crazy, and I have an order that I get eggs out of the carton. I get the ones in the corner first, and work my way inward. Don't know why, but that's the way that I do it, and I do it every time. Well, I baked 3 cakes, and used all my eggs. I remember looking in the carton on Sunday and grabbing the last 3 eggs, and telling Anna, "Oops, it looks like we're out of eggs, can you help remind me about that when we go to the store?" I was in a hurry, and the trash can was full, so I just left the carton in the fridge. Early Monday morning, Anna's birthday, Anna hops onto my bed and announces that she wants pancakes for breakfast. I groggily told her that I would make them while she was at the pool with Danny and Tommy. They left for the pool, and I went to start the pancakes. I was in the middle of putting all the ingredients together when I got to the part that says "1 egg." Crap. I totally forgot that we were out of eggs! Danny was gone, I had no one to run to the store for me, and my daughter was expecting pancakes when she got home. I went to the fridge, knowing full and well that there were no eggs left in the carton and looked, just to be sure. Well, there was one lone egg in the corner of the carton! Are you kidding me? Those are the eggs that I use FIRST, not last! How could that happen? Well, I have no idea how it happened, but that egg was there and I was able to make pancakes for Anna's birthday.

Hmmm. It sounds more like the "miracle of old age" to me.

Hmmm, I'm thinking it's a good thing CJ's deciding to become a psychiatrist--you know there's medication that can help you! Seriously, I'm happy that you had a nice little mommy/tithing blessing to make Anna's day nice.
