Great follow-up to my bad night

Recommended Posts

So some of you read about the drama from last night that had me so upset. Well, when I got off here at midnight I had some baking to do. I had planned on spending the evening baking but had gotten distracted by the problem and then next thing I know it's midnight. The thing is, the baking was to bring to work to raise money for the walk we are doing this sunday for the Humane Society. So although it was already pretty late, I was thinking to myself "I can't let this be worse by ruining a great opportunity to do some fundraising for needy cats and dogs". It couldn't wait as today was friday and the walk is Sunday. So although my husband thought I was crazy I started baking and make 3 different batches of muffins and 2 double batches of cookies! It took until 3am!!!!!!! It was totally insane as I was working so fast, but it worked great to get my mind off things and within an hour I didn't get about my problem at all (although the words of support some of you gave me helped a lot too!)

 

Today my husband and I brought the cookies and muffins to work, and our co-workers generously donated 150$ in exchange for the treats. All the money is going to the Ottawa Humane Society. We are doing their Wiggle Waggle Walkathon on Sunday and I am SO excited because we have never done it and it will be great to see insane amounts of dogs and I think Charlie will have a blast (assuming he doesn't get overwhelmed, which he may a little in the beginning).

 

Anyways, just wanted to share my story.

 

So next time your mother in law drives you nuts, your family is complaining that you are having a destination wedding or your bridesmaid informs you she can no longer afford to travel to your wedding, bake some cookies! And even better, bring them to work and raise some money for a cause you believe in. It worked for me.

 

Okay, off to bed as I only slept 3 hours last night!!!!

That sounds like something I would do. I am not much of a baker, but I would totally find something to do to distract me and sometimes if I need to get something done, I stay up really late doing it when no one else is awake! It is almost a nice, calm, peaceful time as long as you can stay awake to do it!!!

Mm cookies sounds really tasty to me right now. Great work on raising all that money for such a worthy cause. Good for you not letting a bad night get to you. Perhaps I shall take your advice and try this next time something drags me down.

Way to turn the energy around. Good for you.

 

I probably would have eaten one of the batches of cookies along the way...
