It’s 1:30am. I know it’s technically Tuesday, but the week already seems impossibly slow and long. It’s a holiday shipping week (Valentine’s Day), so it’s nothing surprising. We’ve been through this before, but some days wear you down. Mark has a whole week of long days ahead of him. It’s days like this where we think we’re really stupid not to have hired help or an intern from a culinary school, but it’s one more thing on our long list of things to do. We just haven’t gotten to it yet.
On my end, I’ve been juggling a couple of projects, including our W&S website redesign. There are a bunch of things brewing too, some projects that will pay the bills, others that I’m crossing my fingers for. I rarely ever get excited about design jobs – I mean really truly excited – but there is one that I’m really hoping will happen. I’m grateful to be busy these days, but I do sometimes feel like I’m scattered all over the place.
And then there are projects in my head that I want to do for fun. My only enemy is time.
In other news, Mia’s got a new hobby that she learned from one of her classmates’ parents at school – finger knitting. She’s been making scarves for her dolls and for some of her friends (saw our neighbor kid wear one to school today when we picked her up in the morning. So sweet). She says she wants to make a bunch and sell them at craft fairs. She named her business, “Knitting Delights”. I gotta say, it’s a step up from what she declared she wanted to be a few years ago – a cleaning lady.
