Am I being overdramatic? Maybe.
The reason for not baking for the next few months is twofold.
One: My precious little handmixer finished dying last week, in the middle of my baking a batch of sugar cookies for the office Christmas luncheon. Thank goodness I have been doing weights at the gym and was able to finish mixing the batch with a spoon.
Two: My body will thank me later for not baking (which then eating thus said baked goods ensues) while I'm recovering from ACL surgery. Amen to that.
God, was my mixer dying an obvious sign to stop baking so much? If so, I repent!
I will give up all my sinfully sweet ways right away.
Sadly not baking,
