Fate Cookies

I've been laying low. I will draw a name for the contest soon, I swear.

My husband was just away for a week and I did a major toy organizing project and I painted the living room. Dang, I forgot how hard painting is..oops, trim paint on the wall...oops, wall paint on the trim...repeat...repeat...

And now my husband is back in time to take care of everything (I sent him to work for me at school today) while I am taken down hard by an illness that is digestive in nature, and really, I realize that's already TMI, but by day three I am just trying to hold it together.

And my dear daughter is 6 today. I know, how the heck did that happen? She requested Fate Cookies (Fortune Cookies) the other day, and I can't make that happen, not this week. And I am too sick to make cake. And my sweet big girl needs me at school for a special birthday celebration in a couple of hours. Pass the Depends, I'm gonna need 'em.

Oh no! I am happy to bake a cake for you (really, I love baking). Give me specs and I'll do it and deliver it (like, what flavor, etc.). Seriously! I've done this for other gf and I am happy to do it.
