Good grief this day is just CRAWLING by. And yet the week ahead is likely to be a big BLUR... so I'll give you the lowdown on the schedule ahead in case I fall off the face of the internet...
Next weekend I have two brides stopping by for cake tasting, one on Saturday @ 3, the other on Sunday at 1:30. The Saturday bride has no qualms about my talent, but wants to taste stuff because she and her groom can't decide what flavors to get, so I made seven different flavors of cake today to fill tomorrow and chill until Saturday. The Sunday bride knows she wants red velvet, but wants to know I can pull off the fondant and gumpaste work from a picture, so I spent the entire afternoon making bases for succulent plants and roses and calla lilies and freesia.
It feels like it should be 11pm, not 7! I'm ready to make some tuna for lunch tomorrow, figure out my first day outfit, and GO TO BED!
Tomorrow I'm working from 8:30-5, first day orientation full of paperwork and pictures and payroll stuff (gotta take a checkbook!). I've got a chiro appt at 6:15pm, we've got low carb pizza premade and ready to bake up when we get home, and I'm making the frosting/fillings for the cakes I baked today so I can get them wrapped up and properly chilled.
Tues through Fri my schedule changes to what will be the "normal" hours of 10-7. Tues will be what it will be. I'm not planning ANYTHING else for Tues. Wed after work I need to finish assembling the gumpaste flowers so they can be completely dry by Saturday. Thursday will be ONE LOOOOONG DAY. Massage Therapy @ 7am, followed by chiro @ 8:15, the weight loss doctor at 8:40, then work from 10-7. Come home, fall over, work as usual Friday.
Friday evening we have to make sure the house is ready for guests, lucky for me my hubby will be working from home that day and my daughter is off school so she can handle the cleaning. I'll get the petal dust on the gumpaste flowers and let them rest overnight.
Saturday I'm steaming the flowers (final step), and starting the Bakery Channel Weekend in my house. Sunday morning I have another massage appt @ 10, and my other bride and groom (and MOB) arrive @ 1:30.
And then I make a bunch of lunches for the week and then I CRASH.
I suppose I should boil some eggs or something before I go to bed.
