Glad you got the day off tomorrow so you can focus on your many orders, see what happens where you're good at something Holly ! :)

Hugs !

    I'm sorry but emoticon on your success!!! I'd come help...but you don't want me anywhere near any baked goods...neither making them....(not a very good decorator) nor after they're made....(would be shoveling them in as quick as they were done) emoticon

    Is this cake baking /decorating a business you have on the side? It sounds like it has really taken off as you are always baking.

well i didnt get called in this AM. i was happy and relieved...its getting warm out, the school is hot, and i'm miserable in heat. so i was really glad. then..6:45 the phone rings. its the sub service. i groaned..she laughed...said no not for today. Thursday. YAY!! i gladly accepted. hung up. went back to my book.
7:25 phone rings. its the sub service. we need you at the elementary. i took a deep sigh...and dd something i NEVER do. i refused. i said no. i did something for MYSELF. yikes....it was REALLY hard, too. i worry that if i dont accept they wont call again. i worry that i wont be able to pay my bills. if either of those things happen i will deal with it. but for today, i have so many cakes for the weekend, so much to get done, i'm glad i said no.

    It is okay to say "no" -- saying "yes" all the time is like an addiction, just like overeating. Good for you in taking care of yourself!

    When you're used to being super-busy, relaxing is hard to do.

    Relaxation is an art. Think inside about what you most want to do to relax and make yourself do it - baby steps at a time. For me, it was reading. I'm reading regularly again, but it was hard to allow myself to do it. When I first started trying to relax (like you, I tend to be busy, busy, busy), I spent the whole time puttering, pacing, and yes... bored. We need to learn to be kinder to ourselves! ;-)
