I am that little ole ant - just watch me push my rubber tree plant.

It's my own fault, but I still believe I will get it all done. Knowing I am flying to New Mexico at 7:30 am, Wed. - I took on 4 cakes. All birthdays - completely different. I have a two tier order for a "Paris" birthday, a 3D Cheeta Girl Purse, Mickey Mouse Jumbo cupcakes each with a gumpaste mickey hat to accompany a fancy smash cake and the final cake is a 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 white American Idol.

I didn't think I was nuts at the time of taking the orders, because I'm building my new business. (This time last week I was pming another CCer about not having any business, so I am grateful, although nuts!) I know if I'm not available when someone needs an order, I'll never have business. That is why I took them on.

My reward in New Mexico is a trip to the spa - hair, facial, pedi. (On my husbands company!!!! Yeah!!!)

Please keep me in your prayers tonight. I CAN do this! Besides, surely I'm not the only crazy cake lady hanging out at CC.

Thanks for your time - I've got to get back to work.

Welcome to the elite club LOL

You can do it! May be with no sleep but if you got sleep, you couldn't join the club.

Thank you for the encouragement! It is now more than 24 hrs. later and I stayed up until three last night, up at 7:30 and I'm still up at 2:00 am. I am on my last cake and I saved the easiest for last.

It seems like forever because I home school my 2 girls.


Don't worry - still have high hopes! Then off to packing my bags!

Hey, your not nuts!! I was thinking the same thing when I was getting ready to go on my trip this week too! I had 2 birthday cakes and a 3 tier wedding cake for Saturday and was leaving way to early sunday morning for a trip - I honestly think we do our best work under stress! Either that or we are NUTS! Who knows? Hope you got it all done and are enjoying your spa treatment!!!

I finished!!!

I was up all night! Thank you for wishing the cake fairy and her luster dust - it worked. I caught a 20 min nap on one flight, but I slept the afternoon away. Just got back from dinner and tomorrow is SPA DAY!!! I am soooo ready!

Kmoores - I do feel for you having so much to do with your trip. I certainly among many others know what you are feeling. Don't worry, by about 4:30 you'll get your second wind and finish.

Remember - keep your eye on the PRIZE! and enjoy your trip.

Have a great rest of the week.
