The twin's violin concert was rescheduled for tonite. From the last snowday we celebrated. Unfortunately, now there's a giant ice storm knocking down our door, so the concert has been cancelled for good. Not before I'd made a giant batch of red velvet cupcakes for our family to enjoy at the pre-concert dinner, though. What do you do with an entire batch of gorgeous red velvet cupcakes when company is suddenly not coming? When you don't want to really, really have to run every morning of your life...?
You meet your best friend at the bus stop with a box of 6 wrapped in a pretty polkadot ribbon. And when your neighbor shows up to pick up his son after the playdate, you load him up with a box of 4 also. And that leaves 4. None for you. Cuz the family ate them all after dinner. Didn't even leave you one.
'Tis totally OK, cuz I ate something like 3 or 4 of them this afternoon before the early dismissal call even came. I was planning to run in the morning anyway.

I'm a mother of 4 sweet kids who is constantly trying to improve or reinvent myself to be better than I was yesterday...or even earlier today. God's Grace gets me through the challenges facing me in this season of my life as I live my days as a stay-at-home mom supporting my husband in all his endeavors (even learning to pick up his dry cleaning) while trying not to overindulge in the common icee mocha.
