So it's been a crazy crazy month. Not only in the baking world, but in my family life, as well. It all started...Ok, you don't need all of the details. So fast forward: this month we've spent as much time in Dr.'s offices as we have in our own home.
Croup x2 (7 yr old and 4 yr old)
Broken foot/cast (my 4 yr old)
Torn Achilles and surgical repair/cast (my husband)
Dog bite requiring stitches (my 7 yr old)
2 casts, some bandages, lots of antibiotics and pain meds later, we are a family on the mend.
Oh, and mommy? Mommy is just fine. Mommy is Wonderwoman. Mommy takes care of all of this and still manages to keep everyone fed, bathed, keep the fridge stocked and the washer and dryer spinning, repair pool screens, clean gutters, clean the pool, blah, blah, blah. No rain, no rainbows, right? Besides, it's not about kudo's or awards. It's about taking care of your people. Fixing their ills and seeing them smile. This is all just temporary. But let's hope we are on the upswing.
Enough of all of this negative stuff, did I mention all the baking I did this month? Over a dozen BIG orders! Cookie cakes, cake pops, muffins, cupcakes, custom cakes, cookies and even granola!!! I am so thankful for each and every order I had, and for having the strength to be able to complete them all under less than ideal circumstances. It meant being challenged in new ways, lots of off-the-cuff problem solving and even an all-nighter! In the end? I am incredibly proud of myself and all that I have been able to accomplish. My techniques have improved and my confidence is high.
I'm looking forward to a fun summer and lots of great new clients to work with. And I can't imagine I will have any trouble keeping busy... :)
