Ups and DownsI truly love my job and I love being in demand, but there are times when I feel overloaded. When someone asks me to do a job I hate to say no, especially because I know and like most of the people who call me. But I tend to cram a bit too much into my life. In addition to my work, I garden and am on the board of my garden club, and this school year I have volunteered to have culinary arts high school students come to me for a class once a week. I used to write articles for the New York Times, but aside from my cookbook I have done little writing in the last year or two -- there's been no time. So, balancing the things that are important to me is a continual challenge -- I'm reluctant to give up anything.
