I gave it up then and headed downstairs to get busy on the small cupcake order I have for today, which required three trips to the car to get all the stuff I accidentally left in the car yesterday. After I got the cupcakes into the oven, I got a call from Not-So-Ex warning me that his work isn't looking too great and a layoff may be coming. Now we've been through the warnings and the fear several times this year alone, but it makes it even more alarming since I'm no longer working. We'll see what happens, but I'm definitely scared.
But, to end on a good note, tomorrow is Hunt's birthday! We're all excited although, in my case, I'm mostly excited for the cookie cake.
