Neglecting the blog

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. First there was the wedding, then a super busy week, then I’ve been away.

My super busy week was great though-I got up-to-date with everything at my job, so I could leave for vacation guilt-free. I am sure I will be swamped when I get home, but for now I can pretend everything is in order. And if I am not swamped when I get back I can finally do some work on some big reorganization projects I’ve been wanting to do. Yes, I love to organize. Yes, I am a big dork-I think you had that figured out by now.

I also did some freelance work and will be getting paid for it. If I can be careful with money next month I can take that whole amount and put it in my savings, which will put me less than $1000 from my initial goal. I can’t believe how close I am so quickly, it is really motivating me to try and save even more in the next few months.

In addition to getting paid for that, I made my first paid cakes! I have turned a hobby into a money making venture! Er, sort of. I actually only charged the cost of the cakes, because they were for a friend’s birthday and they were my first hired cakes. But I can use that experience in the future to make money, and at least I didn’t lose anything. On the down side (maybe) I’ve decided that since I no longer have to practice I can’t do that many cakes for free. The big cakes really cost a lot to make. I don’t mind doing it for cost, and of course my family are still going to get free cakes, but I can’t just make them all the time for whatever anymore-it really is more expensive than you’d guess.

So that was a good, productive week. And at the end, I got to go see my boyfriend and celebrate his birthday and now I am in Hawaii! Which is the most recent reason I’ve been neglecting the blog-I’m on vacation. It is very beautiful, and way too warm for me. If you’re wondering how I managed to afford going to Hawaii, well, I am a spoiled brat. My mother paid for the trip. In my defense it is a trip to visit family and she used frequent flier miles. But yes, I know how lucky I am.

I saw big turtles today.  It was awesome.  I took a photo.  True story.

    That is a big turtle. I can’t look at turtles without thinking of them taking a jillion years to have sex.

    Ooh, I’m so jealous of you! Hope you’re having an absolute blast. I’m A-OK with your neglect of the blog because you have good excuses!
