postheadericon What i know

I know that there are some people that have too many irons in the fire and handle it just perfectly and gracefully. I know there must be something terribly off with folks like that!

I know...I have too many irons in the fire.
  1. I have a full-time job in the medical transcription field working 40+ hours a week.
  2. I have a small business, Sugar Beez, making custom cookies that takes up 20+ hours a week.
  3. I have 5 daughters that take up every moment of time I can give them.
  4. I have a 22-year marriage to a man who lives and works in CA that we see 4 times a year if we are really fortunate.
  5. I live with my 5 daughters in IL.
  6. I have an irrational desire to become a full-time cake artist when I know damn good and well I make much more money in medical transcription.
  7. I volunteer at my daughters' schools.
  8. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I have 1-1/2 grandchildren...Riley who is 4 months old and Ruby who is due 9/19/09 (explains the 1/2 a grandchild, right?).

I do very well at the medical transcription part of my life, and I do a dern good job at the childrearing part of my life, so someone please explain to me my totally irration drive to do something with cakes and cookies and pies and gelatins and all that sweet stuff? I drive my 21-year-old daughter crazy because she thinks I should just focus on cookies. I am good at them, but I want to be good a cakes and cupcakes and gelatins I wrong? Or am I just nuts?

The jury is still out.
