do-gooder turned jackass

It was baseball weekend with husband's family, and we stayed with his brother for the weekend. Today dad and younger brother headed back to Oregon, older brother and his wife headed off to work.

I took it upon myself to clean the kitchen, arrange the dishwasher so that everything fit and get it started. Easier on my pregnant sister-in-law who was such a good hostess.

Then I thought, why not go the extra mile and wash the carafe to the coffee pot.

AND THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED! This do-gooder turned jackass. I effing broke the carafe while rinsing it in the sink. Damn it all to the coffee pot graveyard.

So we headed out and bought a new one. And I left this note.

And this coffee pot with new filters (since their old ones won't work, and we tried to make that happen). I hope they like it.

Dear M&M,
I'm really sorry. I feel like an ass. But thank you for having us. It was great to see you.

Oh no! Accidents happen!

Maybe they're happy with the new coffee maker and they're actually glad you broke the other one!

Either way, you're family so they have to invite you back! :)

They were actually very happy with the new coffee maker, which made me feel so much better!

I'm glad they'd have to invite us back either way! Hahaha :D
