Today. absolutely nothing. no moving. no daily 5 mile walk. no work. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zippo. Zilch. Bupkiss. Squat. Diddly. no. no. no.

I blame yesterday for m spending today doing my best impersonation of road kill today. Yesterday, I made dozens and dozens of sugar cookies and we decorated them for a baby shower, I made my ever popular apple pie cookies (i'd give the recipe, but DW threatened me permanant couch life...serious money makers, can't make em fast enough) I made brownies for another client, and a double fudge chocolate cake with dark choco frfosting for another one. Spent the last 36 hours baking like a wild man, and stopped only to go to a boy scout meeting. lol. So..yeah...today is bump day. When you're driving, if you hit a bump, think of me. It might be me. 210 pound flour soaked bump.
Cookies = Love

I INTEND to finish altering a prom gown I've been working on. I'd like to get it done today, but I don't think that's realistic. It's extremely puffy. One outer skirt and 4 underneath. The fullest underskirt has a 16-yard hem. I've done 3 of the 5. It took me abut 2 hours to do the 16-yard one.

The mother is going to choke when I give her the bill. Besides all the shortening, there is work to the bodice and halter. Expensive prom. The gown was over $400. I can hardly believe it! I think my prom dress was about $75, but that was just after the Earth was formed.

Have to finish cleaning the kitchen
Got to work from now until midnight, then I have to plan my weekend so I can get everything in I need to do.

Have a buddy coming in from out of town I'm going to try and hook up with as well as keeping the kids entertained and of course try something new to cook as I like to do each weekend if I can at all.

And church on sunday more than likely.
