Yea, yea, yea... we all wanna be skinny and hot, so I totally understand why baked goods sales drop after the holidays and why new gym memberships peak in January. I'm not mad about it, hey- I started working out as well.
Before I moved to the States, I never heard the concept of a "New Year's resolution"; but after being here for eight years, I find myself promising I'll start changing old habits and hoping I have the will power to stick to them... unfortunately, a few weeks later, I convince myself it was a silly resolution to begin with, just to feel a little better about the fact that I can't follow though. Boohoo.
So - When does baked goods business pick up again? I say when all the chain stores decide to decorate everything red and put hearts all over the place. And why not heart shaped cake pops? Because my kitchen and bathrooms have been invaded by workers with toxic chemical smells and bad music. I'm really excited to have re- finished bathrooms and a freshly painted kitchen... but today I had to go to the bagel place downstairs to use the bathroom - and that's never fun (specially since I live in a fifth floor walk-up).

See? I just gave up on my new year's resolution to be more positive. Boohoo #3
