Cake anyone?

I woke up at 6:30, which, of course, felt like 5:30. I have been dragging ever since. All I want to do is crawl back in bed, but I have work to do. On top of that, I hadn't really looked through my email until this morning. There was a contract for a home sale waiting to be signed by Kenny and I. It needed to be done by this morning. Awesome.

And you know when you are trying to rush around to get something done what inevitably happens is the forms manager won't open, then Adobe won't be loaded on the computer that is connected to printer that, by the way, picks this morning to NOT print, so you will have to find another copy of the form and white out the old information. Except you won't have any white out, because who uses white out anymore? So after you get white out and need to scan the form back into the computer, the scanner won't work. And since you already know that kicking things like the fax machine with a work boot does not actually fix electronic equipment (Kenny, I am talking to you), you won't try kicking the scanner. Instead you will curse and scream and jiggle the cord around until it finally scans just in time for my Internet connection to go out, rendering it impossible to attach the scanned files for over an hour.

But you don't cry in frustration. Oh no. You just cut yourself a big 'ole slice of left over birthday cake, and tell yourself that it is perfectly acceptable to have cake for brunch.

Mmmmmmmm.....cake.

And just so you know, I've also found that throwing a cell phone at a wall doesn't improve the reception either.

Allie, throwing phones also doesn't make the person on the other end of the line less of an idiot. This, I have sadly learned the hard way. More than once.

I went to pick up Emmi's cake, and they had baked the wrong size. We had the biggest freaking cake I have ever seen! Seriously. With over thirty people, we still had over half left. Aimee, you should live closer to me. You too, could have had cake for brunch.

Cake for breakfast...this is definately a perk of being a mom....just don't let the girls catch you......then you have to give them some....reminds me of a book, "If you give a mom a piece of cake for breakfast...then she'll want a personal trainer"

I think we'd make the best IRL friends...Starbucks for breakfast, cake for brunch, cupcakes for mid afternoon snack, and then we could sit around and watch our husbands cook dinner....while I children run around like untamed animals. =)

As long as you like to take your mid afternoon cupcake snack break by the pool...I am working on my tan!

Aimee' said...

Oh, this white girl really needs to work on her tan! We have a pool in the backyard that I never go near...but I'm going to change that this summer...I'm tired of being pastey!

I don't actually get in our pool...I just sit by it everyday!

Now the kids? They have been swimming since the temp went above 70 degrees.
