Cake Dreams or Diaper Nightmares!

I have volunteered to make a diaper cake for my Sister-in-law's baby shower. I'm pretty stoked about it and have told numerous people that I'll either hate making it when it's done or start my own business!

Most people that know me well know that I have some of the craziest dreams ever! I honestly don't know how I get any rest at night. My dreams are always so stressful. Last night's dream was about the diaper cake. Instead of a baby shower the in-law siblings of mine were getting married. I was at the ceremony and I thought I had hours to get the diaper cake ready for the reception. When the ceremony ended my mother reminded me that the reception was in an hour and that she was leaving to get on a plane back to Tucson. I FREAKED the "F" out and begged and pleaded with her to stay and help me finish the cake. She of course stayed, she's my mom after all.

We ran to the local HEB and went directly to the wedding cake section (all grocery stores have wedding cake sections, right?) There was a group of gay men who I somehow knew really well, they resembled the mice on the movie Ratatouille, and were very eager to help me out. I had already formed the three layers of the cake, which I was carrying with me, with rolled diapers and just basically needed decorations. BUT it was now a wedding reception and I decided the diapers needed to be wrapped in cake, wedding type cake! Luckily HEB sold layers of wedding cakes by the bag, there were ten sizes in it and fairly inexpensive (HEB might want to look into something like this...just saying). My mom and I started to form the cake around the diapers and it was working out really well. I went to get some icing and decorations (we were doing this in the grocery store) when it hit me that this is a diaper cake, not a wedding cake. Surely my Sister-in-law had ordered some extravagant cake for her wedding. You're supposed to see the diapers on diaper cakes, duh! I ran back to my mom and explained my realization but she wasn't convinced. She said I should leave it with the cake on there because she tried the whole diaper thing with some hash browns and it just didn't work out very well.
Umm... ok, makes sense I guess.

That was it. I woke up because I had to pee really bad and was so relieved that my non-existent diaper cake wasn't covered in wedding type cake and that I had a week to get it done.. phew!

The Jackie Show!

I've always thought it would be fun to be a morning DJ on a radio show. They always seem to have so much fun and who wouldn't love to listen to me ramble out my opinions on everything or share some of my crazy views on life? I do know, from the days of having to wake up at 4:30am to open a gym, that working that early in the morning makes you kind of crazy and you feel like you're not really involved with the "normal" world. Your schedule is just different, anyone who works the night shift totally understands that.

I have entered the crazy early morning world again by going to the gym nice and early, 5:15-ish early. That means on my way home I have a huge variety of morning radio shows to choose from. Of course there's the Kid Kraddick Show but sometimes they just annoy the crap out of me. Aren't Al & Kelly supposed to be gone by now? Yeah, yeah, Al's a man whore and Kelly is a whiny bitch and Shannon is a mean dike.. *yawn*. The one I've enjoyed the most so far is the Bob & Tom Show that's locally broadcasted on 101.25. They can get somewhat raunchy but to be honest, I don't even really pay attention to what they're saying, it's the way they laugh. There's a guy on there (have no idea which one he is) that has the best laugh ever. It's a loud, manly & kind of scratchy, "Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaa!" When he's laughing you know this man thinks it's hilarious and he feels it through his whole body, it's great! Every time he laughs I can't help but laugh and really hard, feels so good!

So I guess I need to work on my laugh and brush up on my opinions... oh and I guess I need to actually find a show that would even consider hiring little ol' me.

The Scoop! (Chocolate or Vanilla?)

Alrighty, it's been a month since I posted... what the heck has been going on??

I'll tell ya!

We had a contract on our house that fell through after I had mostly packed everything up and had the house off the market for a month..LOVELY!

The Hubster was out of town for 3 weeks and my beloved laptop joined him. Of course his computer was here but given my experience with destroying computers I didn't spend much time on it.

Our beautiful daughter turned 2 and now I have a wanna be teenager on my hands!

Said daughter and I were cursed with a brutal stomach virus that kept us really close to the house for a week. I lost a couple of pounds though.. there's a always a silver lining!

That about sums up the last month of absence in the blog world!
