I don't know what it is....

Spring is kicking me in the arse. (Ooops, can I say that? I suppose... it's my blog) Anyway, I cannot get my act together to get anything done, other than the things that HAVE to get done.

Which... at this moment, is preparations for Trouble #1's birthday party on Friday. The theme is "Come with me to NY" and my wonderful friend Nat Kalbach agreed to teach her Canvas Class (it's the second film down). So there we will be, with 11 eager (hopefully... but I know Trouble #1 is) little girls... oops, young ladies... creating to our hearts content. Preparations for that part are pretty much done. All the supplies are bought.

Which leads me to the second part, the cake! Trouble #1 asked for a Topsy Turvy cake.... examples can be seen here. I have never made a Topsy Turvy Cake. Oye! What did I get myself into? And to make matters worse, my "black box" AKA power converter for my small kitchen appliances, stopped working. HORROR! I am completely helpless without my big KitchenAid! Or my blender! Or my heatgun! Actually, I don't really need the heatgun, but still.... for cake, I need the KitchenAid. No KitchenAid, no buttercream. Hopefully my dad will be able to figure out what is wrong with the "black box", so I can start baking cakes.

Anyway, long story short, despite the long weekend, where I really could have gotten loads of things done, nothing got done. And once the kids went back to school, still nothing got done. Hopefully today will be better.

And since I have no pictures to post.... here's a picture of Sunny, my mom's new dog. Trouble #3, who was supposed to be my mom's dog, really grew into a pretty big and strong dog, and he did grow super attached to us, so he stayed with us. Into the picture comes Sunny, because my mom just cannot be without a dog. He is a cute little guy, a bit hyper for my taste, and definitely too small for my taste, but he gets along well with Trouble #3, so that's what counts. And, I realize he is a "he", but he can be a real Diva!




Nothing else to say.... so have a good one.
