Every year you hear about someone doing it. It delays everything. It can cause bad moods and hungry guests. And this year I finally am taking my turn.
This morning, an hour before I plan on getting up and about 4 hours after going to bed, I get a text from my niece. Ok, well I'm awake now so I might as well get a jump start on the turkey. Yay! I'll be ahead of schedule for once. (Insert happy dance here.) Preheated the oven right away to warm up the kitchen, got the stuffing made, the turkey all prepped / stuffed, I'm ready to go. When I open the oven, it had just kicked back on and a blast of hot air pushes at me. Down goes the temperature before putting the turkey in so that it isn't blarring at me the entire time. In goes the turkey. I'm thinking going back to bed sounds like a great idea. Yup, forgot to turn the oven back on. It's my turn this year, hopefully my hand is the only one up in the air claiming that mistake this year.
