WOW! It's been over a month since my last post!!! Not to worry, nothing tragic has happened. Thanks so much to several of you that have hinted around via Facebook and email that I was a bit behind in my posts. I know. At this point it's like digging yourself out of quicksand. To sum up; the last two weeks of Phase 3 were crazy. Along with class and finals, I was also working 30+ hours at the Club, taught a children's cooking class, and wrote articles for Patch.com. Needless to say, I ran out of time during the day to keep up on my posts. Which is sad because some pretty good stuff happened over those two weeks. Once school finished up for the Phase we broke for the Holidays.  I spent an entire TWO weeks at home in Springfield! I spent the entire time with my son at home and I actually got to live in the house I bought back in August. The few times I sat down to write I found trying to write a cohesive sentence with a three year old hyped up on cookies and presents is not an easy feat. Thus, the only computer work I did during that time was two more patch.com articles and checked my email.  Additionally, for extra cash I also washed dishes at a restaurant in town. It was fun, but humbling. The one big thing I learned is you can never take your dishwashers for granted, with out them your ship will sink like the Titanic.

Last week I returned to St. Louis for Phase 4, Baking and Pastry. However, I was without my computer, as it was on loan to my Ex for the week. So, here I am, now a full three weeks + behind in posts. I will do my best to include as much detail as I can in the posts to make them a bit more authentic. Please bear with me as I begin to bust them out...........beginning tomorrow.

Happy New Year!!!!!
