Well, let me tell you...the last 2 days have been a blur.
Wanting to do something to make the evacuees smile (if even just for a few minutes)...I thought "Hey, why don't I see if any of the shelters have kids that are celebrating a birthday while they are here. I will offer to make them a cake for free". Got this wild idea Thursday...called 4 of the churches and made my offer.

The first place must have been stressed..."Ma'am we have 120 evacuees and birthdate wasn't required when they came in". icon_eek.gif "Uh, OK, thank you!" The other 3 were very much interested. So 2 of the churches called that same day and wanted a cake to serve all of the evacuees and volunteers "Just write 'Happy Birthday or God Bless' on them". One place had 150 total and the other had 80 total--for Friday.

Last night, I baked 4 half sheet cakes and 50 cupcakes until 1:30 am. Frosted cakes and cuppies this AM and delivered. This, in addition to doing my regular job of home health P.T. with 7 patients.

Well, it was worth it...it really hurts my heart to see so many people that just looked--oh, I don't know, lost or bored. Many were sitting outside visiting with each other. And the guys were all wanting to help get the cakes in. Sorry this is so long but I needed a break from the 3 LARGE cakes that I am working on tonite.
