So yesterday was a day that I can say I don't envy moms. I think moms are great and I love mine dearly, but since I am not a mom I do not know why I had to put up with this. :) My lovely niece is currently potty training and is usually pretty good about it. I had picked her up yesterday from day care and we were out running errands. My brother happened to be with me when I went to go pick up pizza from Papa John's. We decided to walk across Magnolia to Big 5 since the pizza was going to take awhile. While we were waiting at Big 5 looking around my niece was getting annoyed. She wanted to take all of the balls and throw them. (Probably not a good idea.) So I decided to take her to the front of the store to wait for my brother. As we were waiting I was holding her when she decided to pee on me. Yes I said it...pee on me! She started peeing and realized that she didn't have a diaper on (she wears one at daycare) and said to me "Poo-poo". A little late for that! I was peed on and so was the floor at Big 5. Oh well! I now know what moms go through and let me just say "YOU ROCK!".

So as some of you may know, I have already been sick 3 times this school year!!! This is not a good thing. I was sick at the end of September with the swine flu, broncitis and strep throat. Yes I know a great combination! This left me out of work for two whole days and I took about a whole week to fully recover. Then at the end of November, right before going on Thanksgiving break, I came down with strep throat! This was a really bad case of strep throat. I had not had a case this bad in a looonnnggg time!! And then just when I think I can make it the last three weeks of the semester to Winter Break, my tummy decides to not like me very much and takes me out of work yesterday. I am tired of being sick...I can't take it anymore!!!! Any suggestions as to how to make myself not get sick when I am around a bunch of 7th and 8th graders all day long?!?!?!!?!

So I decided that I was going to ignore my previous baking fiascos and try Robyn's pumpkin cheesecake. I went to the store and purchased all the ingredients that I would need and thought to myself "How hard can it be?" As I was making my pumpkin cheesecake with the help of my sister (she was my supervisor), she noticed that there appeared to be too much pumpkin. I told her that I specifically read the directions, which I did re-read about 10 times, and so we added more cream cheese. Well then it turned out that we had enough filling to make about 6 cheesecakes which at that point my sister said I had to be wrong. So I decided to re-read the directions for the 100th time and low and behold, I WAS WRONG! I know it doesn't happen too often :) but I had made a crucial mistake. I was only supposed to add 1 cup of canned pumpkin instead of one can of pumpkin! I decided that I was going to attempt it again and so I went back to the store for more cream cheese. The final result was amazing and everyone seemed to enjoy them! Even the people that do not like pumpkin pie! THANKS ROBYN!!! :)
