Apparently I don’t catch on very quickly. So let me remind myself once again.
It’s such a simple word. Why is it so hard to say?
And do I really think it’s easier to say yes, then have to actually DO it, than to say no and be done already.
Yep. I do.
Which is why I found myself baking a cake in the few short hours I had at home before having to go to work.
Fortunately, it won’t be long before I get another chance to try the NO word again.
I came close when one of the breakfast cooks asked how much I charge for cakes. My reply was “Too much”, and then I hurried away.
Another housekeeper hunted me down and said, “I didn’t know you baked cookies too! Can you make me some Christmas cookies? I like sugar cookies. I want pretty ones… red and green…
I hemmed and hawed a little, but she wouldn’t give. “That’s why I’m giving you so much notice,” she responded.
I LOVE to bake, but I’m not a baker. I don’t live in a bakery. I live in a house with a small kitchen, one mixing bowl and one cookie sheet. And I have a FULL. TIME. JOB.
I’m getting close to learning my lesson. And I know practice makes perfect. And I’ve succeeded before.
I CAN do this!
But I doubt I will.
