Reasons Why I Should Have Stayed in Bed

And not go to the restaurant.

  1. It was raining.
  2. I was waiting for notification to start work [my work-work, too much work-work].
  3. I had tons of paperwork for the restaurant [gives me anxiety].
  4. And biggest reason, sometime there are people in the world that just like to make you feel bad.
I think this all good reasons for staying home with the covers pulled over my head. But of course, I didn't even think of these reasons till after I went to restaurant. So I ended up working [I can't call it working since I didn't get paid] lunch shift [I tried my best not to do much, just cleaning and organizing--but don't get me started on that issue] and kept a constant eye on my phone just in case I got a notification from work. I did get to see a lot of customers that I hadn't seen in a while. That help brighten up my day.

Can't say I was happy when I got home, tons of stuff to do, paperwork and cleaning mostly but all I felt like was crawling in bed. But I toughed it out and got to work. [I waited around all weekend to get notification from work. what a crock of . . .] Whew! What a weekend. Sorry for the ranting but sometimes you just got to blow off so steam. 

But this weekend, I'm treating myself to a day in the NYC with friend who I haven't seen in a while. Going to get cultured--going to see an art exhibit and a dance performance of another friend's daughter [a solo performance of her own choreography] with eating in between. I haven't been out at night in the city for a while. Pretty excited. 

In the meantime, I thought I'd share a recipe I just tried out. If you like strawberries and sticky buns, this will be up your alley. It is really best eaten the day it was baked. This would be a pretty impressive dish to bring to a brunch. The strawberry was juicy and collected on the bottom. If you don't like that use less strawberries and more jam. The cream cheese icing was  perfectly sweet and creamy for me.  

This was sent to me by a friend to try out. Kind of perfect timing. Had some sweet strawberries that I needed to use up and want to make up some for me and WG. It comes via Here's the link to the recipe:
