I'm Getting Better!

At least I think I am. But I thought that last night and this morning as well. And well, I was wrong. Sooooo wrong.

I went to work, walked as usual. I was feeling a bit weak but not near death like yesterday. Upon arrival I discovered that I did not in fact have to do a wedding cake as the flakey woman who ordered it canceled it just as quickly. But I did have about 15 orders. Okay, no biggie, typical Saturday.

By 10 am I was having horrible stomach cramps and had been to the bathroom to throw up twice. I figured it was time to go home when I couldn't stand to airbrush a cake for more then 3 minutes at time. I felt so bad I left a custom cake for my boss to finish. Gawd I can't believe I did that! That's my art work! Whatever, I had to leave, puking on cakes is unacceptable.

I actually walked home because I just didn't have the patients to wait for K to pick me up. Then I got home and slept until like 3 pm. Whined for K to make me chicken soup and ya know what, it made me feel better. I should have know a nice Jewish girl needs a nice Jewish cure. ;)

Anyway, I'm not so bad. Tomorrow I have off so I'll spend it sleeping and getting well and trying not to panic about losing a day of work. *ACK!* Too late!

Thursday = SUCK Also.

Who knew today would suck also? Not work, work was fine, I got things done pretty quickly. I ended up leaving work an hour early because I started to feel like I might just maybe have to barf on a cake or something. I thought that might not be such a good career move.

I still feel like crap. I'm going back to sleep until I need to throw up my toenails again. Enjoy the CAKE photo. Must get well, have 4 tier wedding cake to make on Saturday.

Hump Day = Suck Day

So today was my day off and even though I didn't spend 90% of my time scrubbing my kitchen and forcing my progeny into Cindrella-esque chores it still sucked. Not all of it - there was the obligatory masturbation and well that never sucks unless BOB just runs out of batteries - but the SUCK parts were so SUCKY that they overshadowed the non SUCK parts (yes it is hard to imagine that joy of really good self sex could be diminished by anything, but it does happen). All thanks to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

I'm not going to go into detail on how shitty they are, suffice to say that I owe them a hefty $1660 on two tickets that are already paid due to a change in the law a few years ago, oh yes and I can't forget the little extra $100 added in there for an accident back in 2002. And the most fun part of all of this is that I had no idea of ANY of this (the fees, I remembered the tickets and the accident) so I was caught completely off guard when I was told by the nice customer service person after my hour long wait on hold. I have to say I love that person, she didn't even get frazzled when I let lose with a few obsenity laced phrases at each and every thing NEW she told me. Then she gave me another phone number to call to find out how to take care of said fees and how they will kindly let me pay out these shitty fees. I called my sister and gave her the "You ain't gonna' believe this shit" news of the day and bitched for an hour about WTF? But I paid those tickets! Then I called the other number. And held for another hour, after which a very nice man took my call and got to listen to me and my shock and anger fueled swearing as he told me that not only did have to pay fees on the most recent of my tickets (2 years ago) but on a past one as well! Which when added to the $100 for the accident bullshit comes out to $1660 of which I have to pay $210 a month in payments to the Tx. Dept. of Public Safety. It's AWESOME, especially since I had NO clue about ANY of this shit.

I spent a good 4 hours of my day in Shock and Awe by all this. And by Shock and Awe I mean Bitching and Moaning. And then I did the dishes. Take a look at how nice and clean my kitchen is! Oh yeah and my sweetie Sarge isn't feeling well so no seeing him tonight. Damn, can't a sistah' get a break?

Okay that's all, the bitching is over. Tomorrow CAKE will be back.

Today has been an incredible day of CLEANING! And not just CLEANING, but that really fun thorough SPRING CLEANING! I've bribed the offspring to help and incredibly, it's totally working!

Okay, here are some cakes I did yesterday - which was a REALLY BUSY day! Today is also just not with CAKE, more with cleaning solvent and kitchen stuff. How EXCITING! but when I'm done, the kitchen will SPARKLE - I'll take a photo just to prove it.

Isn't this cute?!?!?!?! Two pairs of boots for twins. The top trim is actually brown, but it looks black because my stupid camera doesn't flash for some reason in the bakery.
I love these cookies! And not just because I love the Mavs.

Okay, back to cleaning before my offspring realize that bribe I've offered isn't worth all the cleaning out of cabinets and scrubbing of baseboards (oh yes I am making them do this!). If they do well, maybe I'll hire them out over their spring break as Little People Cleaning Services! It could work... I mean what the hell else am I going to do with them for Spring Break?
