It is snowed here, and no work today. I just realized that I have been on this website for over 3 hours!!! looking at post, cakes, recipes.

I propose a time out button.. after a certain amount of time a box pops up that reads: HEY !!! have you done the laundry yet? fed the dog? (or kids). Did you check the cake in the oven?

Just something to remind me that i have gotten lost in this site again. icon_lol.gif

I'm at work and spend most of my day on and off cake central. Good thing I have a cool boss. icon_smile.gif

LOL! yeah that would slap me back to reality. Though I must say i have managed to get ten loads of laundry done, folded, hung and put away in two days time on top of grocery shopping and managing lunch and dinner and the emotional well being of my family and play on here at large. Gotta have my CC fix.. oops I smell and hear dinner crackling.... BRB

My night job at the hotel is doing the nightly audit and some prep work to set up breakfast for the next morning. Shhhhhh!...... it only takes about 4, maybe 4.5 hours to do all of that! What the heck ... it's 3:00 a.m., no guests need me, the phone's not ringing, no one's checking in .... I'm cruising CC!!!

So if you see a post from me that's REALLY early in the morning, you can bet I'm at work!

Shhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! icon_wink.gif

so it seems im not the only one.. past few nights i havnt been able tpo drag myself away from CC until 2am.. not good considering my 14 month old usually has me up at 7am. hahaha. oh well, its oh-so worth it.

i only think that the "highly addictive" warning should be much larger... MUCH MUCH larger!

and sadsmile.. i bow to you.. i have managed to hand out 3 loads of washing.. but not yet fold them =S oh dear....mount everest is yet again forming..

Oh Mike that was wrong! So wrong! I hope she catches you. HeHe.

I don't have internet at home, so unless I go visit my mom's I just get online during the day. Of course know I have to figure out why I never do laundry until I'm about out of clothes. Hmmmm....

I work in a family business, so my boss isn't going to get angry at me being online, as long as I do everything I am asked to do.

Ok, I wasn't going to confess, but I did it AGAIN just about 3 days ago! icon_redface.gif Since then, I *DO* double check the spouts before starting the brewer! icon_lol.gif

LOL I am glad I drink tea- one cup at a time... I bet the aroma was enough to wake anyone up.
