I won't slap you. I know you can do it! I will send a pat on the back though.

We all take on more than we should at one time or another..... just chalk it up to an easier "no" next time. You'll get thru it.

Keep in mind, it's all perspective. Someone like you, Leah_s, who does huge orders all the time doesn't think 100 cookies is a big deal. Someone like me, who works full time elsewhere (in an office) and only has a small kitchen to work from when I do get an cake/cookie order, 100 cookies is huge!

Don't spend that $1300 all in one place ... unless you're buying something for me! icon_wink.gif
