As most of you know, this is an all encompassing word for me.
And really, it sums up everything I'm feeling at the moment.
I am incredibly overwhelmed, frustrated, emotional, and exhausted.
This week is proving to be tough.

I have my second interview tomorrow. I have my lesson plan typed out, ready to be given to the principal. I have my notes typed and ready for me to go through, except I'm nervous as hell about being in front of little kids. Crazy right?
I need to make sure that today, Tuesday, is ALL about my interview for the next day.

Then the rest of the week, I can focus on making the cake that I need to have finished by Saturday afternoon.
Cakes baked- check.
Simple syrup made- check.

Still need to:
Make buttercream (choclate frosting, plus colors- red, yellow, orange)
Make filling
Fill and carve cake
Crumb Coat cake
Dot transfer
Pipe decorations

I see sleepless nights beginning Wednesday night. Oh wait, that started already.
I thought I'd get a head start and bake the cakes early. Didn't work out so well.
Cakes crumbled quick.
I'm on my 3rd batch. I'm hoping they hold.

Oh, and yes, here's the icing on the cake (no pun intended), it's period week.
I am an emotional wreck. Lucky the hubby's working a 24 tonight.

Life is GRAND- just a little too full sometimes!
