I know what you are thinking. “Heather, where have you been??!” It’s either that or, “Hey…who are you?” What ever works for you.
So here is the run down of the past week and why I have not been able to post all week.
First of all, I have been super lazy and have not sat at my computer to write a blog post for every day of the week like I had planned. Also, I have been so super busy!
Monday night, when I would usually post a new blog to come up on Tuesday, I was up late baking cakes. I basically baked five cakes…that’s five store bought cake mixes. One of them I messed up terribly. Two was for my cake decorating class. The last two was for a cake I was testing for a friend who wanted a John Deere cake for her grandson.
Tuesday I had my cake decorating class.
After class Tuesday I ended up back at home to make a test run of a John Deere cake with checkerboard cake on the inside!
My first run turned out pretty good, but everything was a bit of a mess. So, I had to bake two more cakes and let them cool over night.
Wednesday I had to get up and decorate the final cake.
It turned out so awesomely! I was super stoked about it. And the checkered board was so easy! I may post a blog on how I did it this coming week.
After the cake was done I had to hurry and get all my research together because I was leading a small group discussion at church that night. I was talking to Middle school girls about depression. I was running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.
Then I crashed and burned Wednesday night, but sadly I had to get up and go to work the next day. My wrist was killing me from all the cake stuff (I have carpal tunnel) and I was just wore slap out. I kept messing things up at work, but lucky for me it wasn’t anything terrible.
Then Friday, good ole Friday. I had a day off and no plans. My cousin wanted to go to the mall, so that is exactly where I ended up. At the mall for Starbucks and pretzels and a little window shopping.
Of course, it wasn’t resting at home and being lazy. But for some reason I actually felt relaxed at the end of the day.
This morning I woke up and was ready to go again. I have to work all weekend, plus Monday. Then cake class and a church thing Tuesday and youth group Wednesday. Here is to hoping I get a break Thursday, but if not…I guess this is my life now.
Busy, busy, busy. And I can’t really complain too much. I kind of like all the running.
