AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! Disaster at home

[ Edited ]

I WAS going to make split pea soup for dinner tonight so I started it in my slow-cooker this morning. When it was done I decided to put it in my downstairs refrigerator since there wasn't room for it in the upstairs one.

 

Yes, you guessed it: just as I was about 6" from the 'fridge, the pot slipped out of my hands and my DH and I are taking turns cleaning up the mess (thank God for paper towels, ragged old dish towels, and old jeans).

 

Guess we'll have leftovers instead...Woman MadPS: I just found some soup in my HAIR!!!

Oh no @FuzzyFace  I'm sorry that the ingredients and the love you put into your soup landed on the floor.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Oh No! I thought you were going to say that fridge died. Well I guess it could have been worse ( dead fridge, fall on the stairs, etc.)

After the clean up, go treat yourselves to a nice dinner at a favorite place.

Glad you are ok.

I have had days like that too!! Sorry the dinner took a dive..................Years back my husband and i were celebrating our Anniversary but i had just had a medical procedure so couldn't go out.....we ordered a beautiful Italian dinner for delivery....they delivered it.....i went to the kitchen to set up and ready the food and dropped the main course all over the kitchen floor.....it wasn't pretty...but something we laugh about today!!

Oh no,  I know how you feel.  I have done that myself a few times.  My dogs come running over to help themselves and usually tramp in it and walk all over the floor before I get my bearings.  

 

I end up washing the floor and giving the dogs dogs a bath.

 

There is a reason, we own a shop vac.

Don't you just hate that?

All that work just to make more work. I've been there so many times myself.
