Let. Me. Eat. Cake.

This week/weekend has been crazy busy, just like the entire month of May.  But it's all good stuff, so I want to do it all.
Wednesday:  all day field trip to the Uof U
Thursday:  kids soccer tryouts 5-8
Fri:  Ethan soccer / Kids Primary Activity / Ethan Scouts    Family bday party for Ethan
Sat:  Ethan soccer game / Brooke's baby shower / Eva's tumbling exhibition/ Ethan Party for Friends
Sun:  Dad's b-day celebration

All of the above (except the soccer and field trips) included rich, sugary, chocolatey, sprinkly, gumballed, yummy delicious cake and/or cupcakes.  And all of the above also included rich, frostingly, chocolatey, cold-from-the-fridge delicious leftover cake and/ or cupcakes.
I have no will power.  None.  None!  I've had cake for lunch and dinner and a late evening snack.
Just had to get that confession out there.  It wasn't like a dainty piece of cake here and there, either.  It was like 6 cupcakes and a big fat piece of chocolate cake eaten with a spoon out of the tupperware.  And that was just this afternoon.

I've analyzed this before - the lack of will power issue on sweets.  I think that what I am trying to do is eat the cake/chocolate that I am craving to an extreme so that I will eventually make myself sick to stop me from eating it.  Heaven forbid I use a little discretion or conscious eating practices!  Actually, now that I think about it...hormones could have something to do with it.  Yep.  It's not me.  It's the hormones, dang them!
As soon as I get out of my sugar stupor I'll have to post some of the fun stuff going on.  But until then...
I'm going to lick the batter from the beaters and from the spatula I used for the frosting, thank you very much.

I LOVE CAKE. Everything about cake. The eggs, the sugar, the flour, the salt, the baking power and/or baking soda. I love the vanilla. I love the milk - especially if it's buttermilk. I love it all!

Great post, by the way. Especially liked the "sugar stupor."
