I embarked upon a journey…of the cake pop kind.
It was a journey fraught with mishaps and words that are somewhat naughty.
But first birthdays are so special.
So I took one for the team.
I was under the mistaken impression that holding my breath and pressing my lips together would cause the cake ball to stay on the lollipop stick and persuade the candy coating to sheet off in perfect smoothness.
I was wrong. So wrong. I don’t think, in my life, I’ve ever had so much trial and error in one day.

Then this occurred:
Then this transpired:

I’m embarking on a different journey tomorrow. Of the stupid-computer-you’re-lucky-I-don’t-sledgehammer-you kind. It’s actually a journey to Best Buy. I tell you, that Geek Squad sees me coming and they say “the usual Mrs. Bee?” and I say “yes please, boys” while handing over my infected computer and my Visa. So, if I’m not commenting on your blogs, please know that I miss you terribly and I’m not being neglectful. I’m just computerless for a while.
