Good morning ladies!
Thanks for all the people who were so kind as to give me their opinion about the cake business. I think I'll do everything you said, basically. I won't necessarily advertise her web site on my web site. But I'll tell her I'll direct people to her if they ask for cupcakes or if I can't take an order for some reason. And suggest her to direct them to me if she has an overload or if someone asks for a regular dessert. And I'll ask her how she became so successful (thanks purple, hadn't thought about that). I found that I have a Wilton distributor very close from home, this is very exciting. I'll be able to go there ASAP and purchase a nice set of fondant cutters to make all kinds of flowers. It comes with a book, too and other tools so I'll be very well equipped. My realtor ordered a cake for his fishing trip and he gave me carte blanche. I'll try to make a koi fish, orange and white. I'm still figuring out how I'll shape the cake itself, but the decorating part should be fun.
One more thing... I yielded this morning. I had to buy milk at the train station mall, so I thought I should buy my HPT at the same time. And, checking the brands, I saw that the First Response tests were on sale. So I bought one. And I know I could test right now if I wanted to... but I'll wait. If you test 2 days before AF is due, you have 98% accuracy. So I figured my test should be on Friday, that means I could test on Wednesday morning with 98% accuracy. If I tested today, I would only have 78% accuracy... 87% tomorrow... *sigh* I almost regret buying that stupid thing, it's tempting!
See... Yesterday, DS threw up in his bed. And while cleaning, I gagged 3 times. I did the exact same thing while DH was picking after our dogs during a walk a few days before we had our BFP last time. I'm so convinced I'm pregnant, that's why it's so tempting to just confirm it with a test!
It's so good hearing from you sweetie. I'm glad you feel okay now, or at least that you have good moments. DH seems very supportive and sweet!
Take care, okay, and you know we're there for you.
It's ER TIME!!!!!! Gosh, it's way done by now, silly me, you're in Australia, there's almost a 24h difference with me! How did it go sweetie? Do you have lost of happy big plump follies? Looks like you'll need the yoga pose I talked about to relieve some of that soreness in your pelvis and lower back. Want me to explain it again just in case? Tylenol really helps big time too.
you didn't say anything about you sweetie, how are you doing?? How was your weekend?
oooooh wet dreams! LOL strangely enough, I didn't get them this time. I'm mostly dreaming of cakes, it's not that sexy, lol! Seriously, I'm sorry you had those horrible cramps. But hey, most people have sex after they conceive, and they become pregnant just fine. When I worry about things like that, I think about all those women in third-world countries, who still become pregnant despite malnutrition, though climate, daily tough physical work, and so on. It puts things in perspective. Okay, that BBQ sounded like HELL! POOR THING! Ack, I do want to respect people's space, but I don't understand why some people make such a huge fuss about dogs. I have two dogs and my father and his wife aren't dog friendly. They like them when they come visit me, but they don't want them in their house. So each time we visit, we have to put the dogs in a kennel (they live 3 hrs away). It's a lot of fuss. So I completely understand. The situation with your DH's ex, and their daughter, seems very emotional and complicated. Usually, situations like that do not solve by themselves. I feel sympathy for your stepdaughter, because she must be very unhappy to behave the way she does. I also feel sympathy because I know I was deeply unhappy when I was her age and I didn't at all get along with my father's wife. No spying involved, but I was still caught between a lot of people... my family on my mother's side, my family on my father's side, my father's wife everyone venting to ME behind each other's back... anyway. All this to say, I think if the situation is this bad, you should really consider family therapy. It took the birth of my son to make things better between me, my father and his wife, because we had accumulated such a huge pile of bad experiences together that our barriers were way up and sometimes it went super well, but it always ended exploding in our faces and making a huge mess. I suffered a lot through all this, and they did too. Don't suffer for that long sweetie, address the problem right now with a neutral mediator who is trained to handle such messes. And most of all, I give you a big hug, because I feel sympathy for you too. I wish things were more harmonious for you; those kinds of relationships can really take a toll on a household...
Hi! Congrats on your transfer and frosties! Happy bedrest!
And lots of baby dust to you!
Okay, gotta stop babbling and start working! I have to see three hospitalized patients this morning.. so let's get to it!
