I’ve Created a Monster
Since making the ducky cupcakes the other day, I seriously cannot stop thinking about making more cute cupcake creations! I had some free-time during lunch today and purchased a mini-cupcake tin, a serving tower (can be used for things other than cupcakes), and a cute apron (also can be used while making things other than cupcakes). I guess everyone likes to have a hobby and for the time being, cupcake making will be mine. I’ll probably calm down when it gets too stressful/expensive, haha. The sad news about the duckies is they didn’t win the contest. We lost to the Philly Phanatic which is somewhat bittersweet, but Scott thinks ours were better (I don’t think the Phanatic ones were well-decorated from his description, but he could be bitter, lol). He blames the fact most of the voting was done before he got into work yesterday. He had an appointment and didn’t get there until 10am, and he saw most of the cupcakes were almost gone meaning votes were already cast. There’s always next year. The good news is the cupcake bake sale raised over $700 to the children’s charity his company sponsors, and the company is matching every dollar from the sale.
This weekend is pretty much shot for running and I’m a bit bummed about that. Scott volunteered us to help his mom move in with his grandparents (they need someone around to help out and she needs to save $$). I hate moving and that includes my own stuff. It just seems to take way more effort than it should, everyone gets stressed out and angry, and by the end of it you don’t want to go anywhere or talk to anyone. At least, that’s how I am at the end of it. We’re heading up there tonight so we can get started early in the morning and have time to visit his other grandpa (on his dad’s side) in the hospital before the visiting hours are up. With all of this running around, there’s little room for me to find 80 min to run 8 miles (let alone a place). They’re calling for snow on Sunday, too. It looks like I may have to just suck it up and push the run back to Monday. Not the end of the world.
So, that’s my plan for the weekend. Any fun plans out there for you all, internet friends? Also, I’d like to take the time to wish a happy birthday (and engagement!!!) to Hope! Have a good weekends, kids.
