IRS and Cake Decorating
I never in a million years thought I'd ever hear from the IRS. But it happened. I do my own taxes every year so I have no one to blame but myself. Somehow I managed to not claim part of our income last year, so our refund was larger than it should have been and sure enough the IRS is wanting it back, plus interest. Now we are not rich people moneywise, we live pretty much paycheck to paycheck, so this is a big hurt for us. So I have gotten a second job. A few years back I was a cake decorator for Publix Supermarkets here in Florida. I loved that job, but wasn't able to stay with it. Now the opportunity to decorate cakes has come knocking at my door. What timing! My nephew L.D.'s wife, Jen, is a bakery manager for Winn Dixie, another local grocery store. She needed a cake decorator a.s.a.p. So here I am....going to work for Jen. I can only work weekends and some nights if she really needs me too, but that works out great for both of us. So this weekend I am going to try to get some practice in on my roses and other tips, as I haven't decorated in quite awhile. I am really looking forward to this because I enjoy it so much. Plus the extra $$ will come in handy right now. We will overcome this obstacle and we will enjoy doing it, lol. If my practice icings don't look too bad I may be brave and take some pics to share. This will mean my blog time will be cut down significantly(like I really blog alot anyways, lol). So wish me luck....not exactly sure when my first day will be, but I'll let you know.
