I think I killed my hot cross buns!

I goofed again! I'm really having a bad week. In putting together the dough tonight for my hot cross buns, I picked up the pot (quite proud of myself) to move it to another counter, only to see behind it the two packets of yeast that I completely forgot to put in. I quickly uncovered the pot and mixed in the yeast with my hands to get it as incorporated as possible, but I just don't know. Is the dough hopeless, or will it be okay? Is there anything else I should do?
