a quick word
just wanted to say that i'm back from j-town. the weekend went almost exactly how i thought it would. which of course means i'm absolutely exhausted. the cake didn't quite survive the trip up. honestly, it didn't survive the trip to the car to go up. friday was a alexander type day. you know, a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, and forget all this, i'm moving to australia. anyway, the kids could tell i was having a bad day, they always know somehow, so lumpy was trying to be helpful with loading up the car and he decided to carry the cake. it was a big cake, and the icing was still wet and hadn't hardened, and it all shifted and slipped and was a mess. it was bad, but still it was just a cake. we got up and i mostly fixed it. perfectionist that i am, i thought it was just ok but everybody else said it looked great. at least it tasted good. anyway, more tomorrow, or not if i think of something else to talk about.
