one of those days...sigh
Monday, March 24, 2014
These past few days I have been doing very well on my plan. This morning I just want to bake, which I will not be doing!
So much going on in my life, but I will be strong.
I need to find a job and have not really worked outside of the home much for the last 30 years.
We have some kind of animal living in our wall and we need to call someone to get it out...big expense...
Our water is not working so I am unable to drink my water. Water main break on the next street. ugh...
Husband can't find a job...
I am trying so hard to stay focused and positive, but man, it sure is tough. I know there are many who are so much worse off than me. I have much to be thankful for. I am going to try and dwell on those things.

It's all well and good to tell yourself that there are many others worse off than us when things seem to be going wrong one after another. It's another thing to actually accept it though.
Whenever I have the urge to bake something I know I shouldn't even think of eating, I call a friend who is trying to cope with enough problems to drive anyone else crazy, to ask if she could help me out by accepting a cake/cakes/cookies, because I have an uncontrollable need to bake. She has recently taken on short term care of a 12 year old foster child with special needs, as well as trying to pack up her life's belongings to move to a smaller house in ten days' time. She is more than willing, and very grateful, to accept anything I bake, because her foster child has a stomach like a bottomless pit, and only now is he being given healthy, home cooked meals.
He was so overwhelmed the first day he came home from school and was asked if he would like a warm drink and some freshly baked cake that both of us ended up with tears in our eyes at his gratitude.
Is there a farmer's market where you live? Here, so many people bake cakes, slices, etc. to sell at our monthly farmer's market, for just the cost of the site. Tables, etc. are provided, and I know of a lot of people who make enough money from selling their home baked goods/home made craft work to pay for their annual family holidays. Just an idea for a way to enable you to do something you enjoy and make a little profit at the same time... oh, and also helping you avoid the temptation of sampling what you've made, lol.
