It seems that every time I unpack a box and put the contents of it carefully around the house, I discover four more boxes I didn't know about.
(ooooh, I almost trailed off there, with a metaphor about boxes and the stuff in them and baggage of the emotional variety, but I'll refrain. You're welcome.)
The thing about these boxes is that I have no time for them. There are two little guys here who need my attention and they'd prefer that I NOT constantly tell them I can't play because I have other things to do. And also, they like it if I feed them occasionally. So yeah, the boxes are slow to empty.
The other thing is, I'm preparing for a blogging retreat. Remember? Cupcake '10? It's already here (or this weekend anyway) and I'm getting SO excited. For a while there I wondered HOW IN THE WORLD I would pull off moving over the holidays WHILE planning Cupcake WITH NO INTERNET, but things are coming together thanks to Steph and a number of other lovely ladies who have been pitching in, and now I'm positive this thing is going to go off without a hitch! (Unless you consider large amounts of frosting a hitch, then YES, there's that one hitch.)
Sure, I'm happy to be getting a little vacation from this currently overly stressful life of mine, but that's not all. More than anything, I'm just plain honored to be looking forward to spending a couple of days with the amazing group of women that signed up for this thing.
Steph had an idea to feature each one of them on the Cupcake site so we could get to know a bit about each other and put some names with faces. It's been so much fun to read through the small bios and learn more about this truly amazing, talented, beautiful and hilarious group of women. Head on over there and meet them too, would you?
Maybe we should place bets on which one of them will eat the most cupcakes? Let's see, there are about 30 attendees and I ordered 72 made-from-scratch cupcakes from the Daisy cupcakery in Madison...hopefully that will be enough, ERIN. (That there was a hint for that whole "which one will eat the most cupcakes" thing.)
