We are having a birthday dinner party for my DS who is 2 tomorrow. We are doing a shabbat dinner with 33-40 people mostly adults, but 9 kids/babies. I am making all the food. DH has a list of things that are his responsibility of which he has completed 1. Although he has done some of his other household stuff (garbage, etc.)
This weekend I made 2 loaves of Fine Cooking's Challah from last years holiday baking issue. The kids really wanted some, so I said we could eat one loaf and I would make another before the party.
I started the dough yesterday evening and stayed up till 11:30 to get it baked. I left it on the counter, lightly covered, to cool and put the baby gate on the stairs to keep the dog away. Our dog loves Challah and eats it if it is left out. I told DH last night and this morning that the dog could not go downstairs (and why).
Needless to say, he didn't put the baby gate back up when he left and I was in the shower. The dog ate the entire loaf (which I am sure will make him sick, he has a very sensitive stomach and can only have a certain kind of food)
So now I have to make another loaf today, which is totally not on my time schedule.
I just needed to vent, I am feeling completely overwhelmed with everything that I need to do for this party, and some of the people still have not decided if they are coming (why can't people RSVP?). I have called everyone and several said "I'll let you know soon". The party is tomorrow night. I have 8 that are not decided about coming or not.
Thanks for letting me get this out, now off to start a new Challah!!
