Forexample. The things that I have been stressing about are pointless. They are things that I cannot deal with until I am in the UK, see? Schools and banking and such. Lying awake at night worrying about them is counter-productive, no? So, today, I went to Sharon's to borrow some of HER stress: Wedding Decoration Stress, a wonderfully high-on-the-scale-of-stressful-things stress. And, we solved all of the wedding decorating problems of the world, and IT WAS SO THERAPEUTIC! Things were crossed off of lists, and the fact that they weren't MY lists didn't matter one bit!
In this trend, we agreed that *I* would be in charge of making and frosting the wedding cake! Thereby giving me something tangible to stress about and specific step-by-step list items to cross off. "Get cream cheese" check! "Find large cake pan" check!
Of course, I've never made a decorated cake before... Oh wait, there was the one that was going to be a spaceship but it kinda bubbled up in the centre and cracked, and then the frosting melted and flowed down it.... but then it looked so much like a volcano that we spooned some cherry pie stuff into the cracked top, renamed it "volcano cake", and it was a HUGE success! So there you go! So far I have had 100% success with cake decorating!!! Never fear, my friend! You can rest assured that your wedding cake is in excellent hands.
