Problem with the Deleting Todo Items Step

EDIT: Apparently it fixed itself. I went back to the browser later and things worked perfectly.

Seems I can't get very far without running into another problem tonight. This time my code is passing with rspec but when I go into my browser and try to delete a todo item this error message is displayed on my screen.
"The action 'destroy' could not be found for TodoItemsController"

Here is my todo_items_controller code that I added in this lesson

def destroy
    @todo_item = @todo_list.todo_items.find(params[:id])
    if @todo_item.destroy
      flash[:success] = "Todo List item was deleted."
      flash[:error] = "Todo list item could not be deleted."
    redirect_to todo_list_todo_items_path

Thanks for the help, I'm really trying to understand what's going on here
