I have been such a bad blogger lately...as in not blogging at all!! So Sorry!! I have been missing it but have been so super busy!! The cake business is picking up, which is very exciting! I have an order every weekend this month and have had to turn down two because I just didn't have the time to commit to them. I have made some really cute cakes recently and need to post some pics. I have started a fan page on facebook for my cake business. It is Katycakes. I also need to post some pictures to it as well, but just haven't had the time. You are probably wondering what has been taking up so much time that it has taken me away from my love of blogging...well lots of stuff. Besides kids and cakes, there has been work, family, new career, and kids, kids, kids, oh and some cake.
In March I started a new journey, one day while sitting at my desk at work, feeling very upset with situations at work and missing my kids. I was having that daily tug of war with work and kids. I noticed I had this huge feeling in my heart that I was not doing what I was supposed to be doing with my life. I just felt that my place in the world was much needed somewhere else, like at home with my boys. So I started to think of ways that I could make this happen, the most obvious was to just ask my work I if could work from home, I thought it would be possible since another lady at work does the same thing.....but when I asked they turned it down. I was so bummed out. I really love what I do at work, which I NEVER thought those words would ever come out of my mouth when I started there. When I started I was into fashion and marketing not the oil field. But as time went on and I grew up I realized that I do love it. I love getting to help people, and I love that my opinion is valued by some of the most important men in one of the largest oil companies in the world, and that those men who I normally do not help on a daily business see me and think I have no clue what I am talking about because I look too prissy, but after a few min they realize that I can run circles around them. It is a great feeling, when you have their trust an confidence in an industry that not too long ago women were not allowed to work in. Okay so back to the journey.... I started looking into ways that we could afford for me to stay home, and I came up with doing medical billing from home. So I started taking a class and trained on how to do it. Now that I have passed the class and have started to look for work... I am realizing that it is VERY hard to get work, because most doctor's offices want to hire someone who has been in the field for over 2 years. And to make it more stressful, my last day of work is September 24th, which is crazy because I am not one of those irresponsible people who quit a job without something lined out, and the events of how that happened would take forever to explain, but that is how the cards were delt. So that leaves me very soon to be without a job, and nothing lined out. So it has got me to thinking again....I know....it is very dangerous when that happens. But I was thinking, what am I doing? Am I really going to enjoy this as much as what I do now? Staying home with the boys would be amazing, but I still have that feeling deep down that I am not doing what I am supposed to do...then it came to me. My calling is food. It is my passion. Whether it is cakes, making outstanding dinners, or some pioneer woman cinnamon rolls, I love it...all of it, no matter how many dirty dishes are piled up in the sink when I am done. So after Sept. 24 you will find me at home with my crazy little boys making some wonderful food for anyone who wants to buy it. So Katycakes is in full force, along with some other cooking adventures maybe some catering? Maybe a lunch service for large offices?? I will keep you all posted. Pray this goes well, and my husband doesn't divorce me for putting us through financial ruin, if this doesn't work out!
