If I get this job, I will get a company car. So excited.

Well...

Still nothing. This week they did a nerve conduction test and another MRI. Waiting on the results for both, although I’m not really sure either will do any good. They’ve already done an MRI and that didn’t show anything, so I don’t know why another one would make a difference. But I guess we’ll see what they say at my next appointment. At this point I’m just really frustrated and disappointed. It seems like I’m just spinning my wheels. I don’t know if they will ever figure out what’s wrong with me, and if they do, it may be too late to fix it.

He’s not positive yet, but Robert might spend Easter with us. Love that he’s comfortable enough to spend holidays with us. Our relationship has moved so slowly, so little things like that seem like huge milestones for us.

Both Nikki and I have interviews this week. Fingers crossed that we both get what we want.

Had a blast at the rodeo. Realized that Nadia has never been to one before. Time to start doing those thing with her before it’s too late.

We went to the rodeo and had a blast. I didn’t know if we would get to go. His grandfather had a heart attack the night before, and he needed to go to the hospital to see him. But he decided we needed to go since the tickets were already bought. I think it was good for him. He’s been so stressed out lately, and I think he needed to get away and just have fun for a little while.
We had some interesting conversations afterwards. I miss that. We’ve been so busy lately, that we haven’t had time to just sit and talk.

Robert is taking Nadia and I to the rodeo tomorrow night. I’m so excited. I didn’t think we were going to get to go because he has been so busy lately. But he said he would leave work early so that we could go. I can’t wait.

Natasha asked if Robert would go to her Senior breakfast with us and he said he would. She is so excited. I’m glad she likes him. It’s important to me that my kids like him.

This one is for my daughter’s 18th birthday. She’s always loved the book The Rainbow Fish. Even now when she’s officially an adult, it’s still her favorite book. She even painted it for her final project in her art class this year. So I thought I would surprise her with a Rainbow Fish cake.

Got a potentially great job offer today. I will find out more about it later this week. Fingers crossed.

This one was also a week early. Which is too bad, because I think this is my favorite one so far. I loved it. But it found a good home. I gave it to some friend’s who are moving away and they loved it.

Another customer order. Funny story about this one. (and the next one, which was for the same customer) I thought it was for a certain weekend, and it was actually the next weekend. So this end up being a practice cake. (which is ok, because I wanted to improve some things) I did show it to her though and she loved it. My kids loved it because I let them eat it since I had to remake it.

This order turned out great. It was meant to be a gag gift. The customer went nuts over it. She thought the person she bought it for would be less than thrilled since, you know, it was a gag. But she actually loved it so much she gave me a thank you card.

Another cake order. I hated this one. I had such great plans when I started it, and it all fell apart. Fondant is great on cakes. Doesn’t work so well when trying to cover cake figurines. Well, not for me anyway. I decided next time I will use colored almond bark instead. Customer loved it though. She said her son went nuts over it.

A going away cake for a friend that moved away. While I loved the cake, I decided if I ever try this one again, I’m going to have to do the USA differently. While it was obvious to me what it was supposed to be, nobody else could tell. My mountains and trees were a bit too much texture and it just confused everyone.

Robert’s cake impressed everyone so much that I got a request to do another ICP cake by one of my friend’s daughter. This was his cake.

Made this one for Robert’s birthday. This was the most complicated cake I had done up to this point. He loved it, which of course made me happy. Nothing better in the world than to see that man smile.

Bigger pan this time. This one was requested from my co-workers. This was my first attempt and brush embroidery. It turned out ok. They loved it. It is a skill that is hard to conquer though. I will need much more practice on this one.

Another practice cake. Killed two birds with one stone here. I perfected laying fondant on a cake that isn’t perfectly round. That was interesting, but it turned out so well. I also learned to make ribbon roll roses out of fondant. They aren’t perfect, but I had tried this once before and they were disastrous. So it could’ve been worse.
