Is it possible to be over swamped? Do you have to be an alligator to qualify for that? If it is, then I am that...swamped that is, not an alligator. I have been back to a full time job for about a month now. In that short period of time I have had my work load at work increase ten fold, buried a grandpa, filled many cookie/pie orders, and somehow by the grace of God been able to exercise most nights. Needless to say by the time I reach my bed at 9:30pm I pretty much fall asleep instantly...goodbye my usual midnight bedtime!
I must admit though, I do love a full schedule. Having most of my minutes filled up for the day when I wake up keeps me going and motivates me to do more, and accomplish more. Does anyone else have that problem? The less free time you have the more you do?
I also have to admit that having a regular paycheck again is so awesome...really awesome...I missed it. : )
Now that I am busy I know that it is about to get a heck of a lot busier. Here come the Thanksgiving pie orders...the boxes are ordered, apple peeler/corer/slicer ready to go, pie pans acquired. Last year I cranked out 65 pies in 2 days, and my grandma passed away somewhere in between that chaos and madness. This year I have high hopes of being more organized and efficient...of course I know the best laid plans always go astray in my case. Thus when Friday at 5pm rolled around the making of the pie crust weekend commenced. BRING IT ON.
Add the following and mix until smooth:
