After something like, oh, THREE HOURS (no joke here, people - whew!), it turned into this:
I TOLD you he wanted a PUMPKIN CAKE. Totally not joking on that, either.
And he LOVED it. Even though the writing icing SUCKED (next time, I will just suffer through mixing and piping my OWN, thankyouverymuch) and the hole in the middle of my bundt pans is abnormally large (I had to use *2* pumpkin muffins to try and create that misshapen attempt at a stem)... I guess it turned out cute. LOL
I must say, though, that any appearance flaws? They were soooo forgotten once bites were taken.
If you ever have a hankering for making pumpkin cake? Add butterscotch pudding mix to the batter. SO. DAMN. GOOD.
Now, after fifty MILLION years of cooking (I also decided that tonight was the night to make from-scratch Mushroom Chicken Alfredo... I think I'm legally insane), I am SO ready for a TIME OUT.
Too bad Ralph is literally falling asleep sitting up "watching" a WWE Pay-per-View on his computer. Yeah. I'm thinking I'm gonna veg in the tub ANYWAYS, damnit. It's MY time. LOL

"I try to make it through my life, in my way - there's you, I try to make it through these lies, and that's all I do... I try to make you see my side, I always try to stay in line, But your eyes see right through - that's all they do, I'm getting buried in this place, I got no room - you're in my face, Don't say anything, just go away..." ~Apocalyptica, "I Don't Care"
"Half the time the world is ending, Truth is I am done pretending... I never thought that I had any more to give, You're pushing me so far - Here I am without you...

I'm a musician by heart, a mother by nature, and crazy by design. Wrap that all in a wedding ring, throw in some seriously dysfunctional relatives, sprinkle it with a dash of insomnia, and bake it until it twitches. Currently going back to college after an almost eight year hiatus in pursuit of becoming a Crime Scene Investigator. Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and trying to find a way to manage that tossed in with all the rest... This is a place for me to spill, unfiltered and untamed...
Yep, that about sums it up.
