Clearing the air

The storm has passed. Finally, I am able to act like a normal person again. I often go through phases where I feel a little melancholy, which is normal I suppose. No-one can be happy all the time. But for the last week, I was in the WORST mood. Everything seemed too complicated, and I felt overwhelmed, angry, and bitter.

Just in the nick of time, my Sookie Stackhouse book arrived. I retreated from the world and spent two days largely reading my novel. And when I reemerged, I felt a little better. And then I called my cousin in Kentucky, and I vented about all of my problems. She just listened, and I felt even better. And finally, I decided to just start communicating with my husband again. And suddenly, peace and harmony were restored in Cakerwakerville.

Now I have new (slightly less stressful) things to stress over - like Porgie's upcoming 4th birthday (can you believe my baby girl is almost 4?). I have already purchased her gift. I think she is going to LOVE it, however I also thought Izzy would LOVE his train table. But nobody plays with that damn train table. At this point, it is just taking up room in my house. Grrrr. Porgie has decided that she wants a Puff The Magic Dragon themed birthday. Hmmmm... I am pretty sure no one sells Puff The Magic Dragon party supplies. And I have no idea how I am going to make a dragon cake. My daughter likes to make things as difficult as possible. Little stinker.

And last, but certainly not least, here is a link to my new favorite website. You're welcome.

Glad its getting better! And comp understood on how reading like that can help. I can't wait to get my 2 books I've been promised lol. I guess its good its waiting because one of the ones I want doesn't come out until the end of the month and if we went now I'd get something else and then have to wait on it. lol. The dragon cake sounds like a fun challenge :-)

we did a dragon theme for Oscar's 4th last month, if by theme you accept that we stuck some dragon stickers on green paper cups and sang Puff the Magic Dragon and made this awesome cake: http://www.flickr.com/photos/opoe/4549054123/in/set-72157623924851584/

it's actually just one cake mix. and a bunch of icing and candy. it was easier than i thought - instructions at instructables.com. just google dragon cake and it shows up in the first few options (theirs has yellow icing). good luck!
