I hope some of you reading have noticed that I haven't been posting updates here for a few days. The truth is - I'm busy getting ready for the Big Day. My father's funeral benefit is around the corner and will likely take until Monday for me to recover. I've been busy with planning over the weekend, and starting yesterday, BAKING. We're having a cake bingo and a sweets sale, among other things. I tell ya, the whole benefit experience definitely has the potential to become a very intense, albeit brief, blog. We've been through an entire prism of emotions during the process and dealt with some tough businesses and some even tougher people.
