Woe is the Baketress!

So it has been about 4 weeks since the outage has started and I have not baked a thing in what feels like forever! I am going cuckoo working the night shift. As it turns out it is a good thing I don't live in Alaska because never seeing the sun does funny things to a person. In fact, the only things I seem to see anymore are the view outside my car window as I am driving to and from work, the inside of my cubicle walls, and the backside of my eyelids. I miss my Favorite! I miss my kitties! I miss fresh hot meals and lazy weekends! Luckily, the end is in sight. More of the outage is behind me than is ahead of me. Armed with that knowledge I think I will be able to make it through.

Sorry I have no pictures to adorn this wonderful post with, but the inside of my cube isn't that great. Plus, we're not allowed cameras onsite anyway.

Hope everyone is doing well here in the Blogosphere and beyond. Feel free to keep me abreast of current events by emailing me or commenting on my post. I don't have a lot of contact with the outside world right now and updates on the state of affairs are appreciated.


  1. I don't envy you. Never seeing the sun would make me a dangerously cranky person. On a bright note, the sun has been setting later and later so when you finish the outage you'll be able to enjoy warm summer evenings with lots of sun! If I were you, while I was sitting in my cube, I'd start making lists of all the fantastic things I wanted to cook and bake when I had time again. You know, to give you something to look forward to :)

  2. Not seeing the sun might be okay if you got to see the moon and stars instead. I don't think Alaska would be a problem. I think the problem is 12-hours in a cubicle. It is unnatural, cruel, and unusual. It is Friday though, so I'm glad I get to see you tomorrow night!
