The Mountain of Mulch and the Dumb Blonde

So we have a big party coming up in a week. Each year we host a potluck (in my opinion the best kind of party, affordable and the guests feel involved and connected to it). To prepare for the event, I ordered 4 cubic yards of mulch, think about the size of a compact car and you'll get the idea of the amount. In my brilliance, I had it dumped in the driveway . . . while my cars were still in the garage! Thankfully, my husband's car was on the street so he could drop the kids off at summer school and get to work. Meanwhile, I'm spending my day digging myself out. This must be what if feels like to be snowed in!

That is hillarious! I hate it when I don't think ahead to how my decisions will play out... It happens a lot more than it should. Glad to hear I am not the only one who does it.
