I've been sitting here for at least the last 10 minutes just looking at a blank screen, mainly because maybe I used up all of my words today...and that probably only happens once or twice a year.  And the dialogue running through my head as we head into these final days before the Christmas holiday?  GAH.

Suffice it to say, WE'VE GOT SOME BAKING TO DO, PEOPLE.  And because I'm the only person who knows when everyone at PJP works next week (sorta) and what each day's orders look like (sorta), I feel like I need a briefcase handcuffed to my wrist with all the information written down and locked in there, just in case.  (And just in case of what, I'm not exactly sure.)

(Today, someone asked me if I knew of any bakeries in Austin, Texas that sold pecan pies.  I don't, as I've never been to Austin...though I hear that it is lovely.  And if I did, I wouldn't call to ask them if they were making pecan pies for Christmas...I would call to ask them if they felt overwhelmed by everything they needed to do by next weekend.  And if they said yes, my competitive soul would wonder if they were busier than us.  And if they said no, my competitive soul would wonder what sort of skills they had to manage this all better than me.  So the moral of the story is that I don't know any pie bakers in Austin, and that's probably a good thing.)

Someone please remind me of this in mid-January when we are super slow and I'm over-analyzing it all...

Speaking of over-analyzing, our Kickstarter campaign has 69 hours left.  We are 56% funded at $10,127.  We know some amazing things can happen in no time at all, so this is where Jeanne would remind me not to throw the baby out with the bathwater...which in Jeanne-speak means DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE ON THE PIE TRUCK OF OUR DREAMS.

No word on if this baby knows anyone in Austin...
