Nut House

(no subject)

Just taking a break in between making a bunch of cake and candy and cookies as my Xmas present to the whole family. My pumpkin cake is in the oven right now. I was short some ingredients so I had to take the last $$ out of my account to go get some things. I don't think there are any hidden charges lurking about that I'm not aware of but the woman at the bank spoke such shitty English that who knows. She kept getting my name wrong too.
