This is how my night has gone:
1) Got home
2) started dinner
3) the garbage disposal jammed so I fiddled with that for a while
4) kept making dinner to give the disposal time to reset
5) went to put the delicious pasta dish (link to recipe to follow) in the toaster oven and it was cold
6) plugged different appliances into different plugs to find out I'd blow a fuse
7) had to figure out how to change these weird glass fuses I'd never seen until I'd moved in
8) realized I didn't have any of the 20 amp fuses in the tool box
9) grabbed my purse and keys to run to Lowe's
10) went into the garage to find that the garage door opener runs off the same fuse that's blown
11) had to figure out how to get the garage door open in the dark
12) ran to Lowe's and got the fuse
13) came home and put the fuse in
14) started the toaster oven preheating again
15) went out to the garage to figure out how to close the door
16) spent 20 minutes trying to get the chain to latch in the door's track again
17) disposal was working again so that's good but it's rattling so I'll take a look at it later when I'm not plum out of patience 
18) took some Excedrin migraine for the headache that had formed
19) sat down to eat a delicious dinner that took way too much effort to make after all this nonsense
20) am now writing this instead of doing my homework and it's almost 9pm

21) decided to be proud of myself for figuring out all this jazz instead of getting overwhelmed by all of it

As promised, here's the recipe of that delicious dinner I made!  
Rotel Chicken Spaghetti
This website has a ton of yummy recipes.  I've tried a few, but this one is one of my favorites.

Now, I suppose I should get on that homework, right?  Wait, maybe I need to check Facebook first.  Can you tell I don't want to do my finance homework?
