I should be in my kitchen finishing up the last 3 batches of truffles, but I need a mental break at the moment.? I am behind.? Sitting here doesn’t help me catch up at all.? At the start of last week I was all too excited that I had a bit of a jump on the process.? I thought I’d be done in record time.? However, circumstances beyond my control have prevented me from sticking to my carefully planned schedule.? If you don’t believe I had a schedule ask anyone who has been to my house in the last week and they will confirm.? I had the whole thing written out on my refrigerator white board.? But, we had to hunt a tree.? Then we had to go to hand bell rehearsal Saturday morning.? Then the child showed up in our room at 3:30 Sunday morning robbing me of 2 precious hours of sleep.? Then the child wouldn’t leave church yesterday morning so we stayed to watch the children’s Christmas program.? Then I forgot to add in that I had a second batch of Candy Cane Truffles to make.? Then the FedEx ground truck won’t be delivering the Roseberry bars until sometime today.? My mom has to go to the doctor today so can’t come to help.? Neal’s little boy got sick today so he can’t come to help.? (totally ok with that)
To top off all of that I’m in the middle of sending out a proposal for some graphic design work and Word screwed with my document when I saved it and now it is unreadable.? Now I have to retype the whole thing.? And I can’t for the life of me remember what was on it.? I just remember the final number.? Helluva how do you do.
The good news is that I’ve finally found the “quick way” to finish up all of these chocolates.? 45 minutes for about 80 is much better than the previous 60 minutes.? Now if that FedEx guy would ever show up I’d be in business.
