Progress

I’ve been toiling my ass off this week, trying to get all my outstanding etsy orders done so that next week I can just relax and do what I want. I got a bunch of orders in the days after deciding to take my break so for a while there I was worried I’d have too many to finish in a week but I’m pretty sure I’m going to get them all done (barring one banner that I can’t make until I get more silver glitter sheets, my supplier was out).

Here’s what I’ve done so far, and I just have to finish one “Stay Sassy” and make three mini “Feminist Killjoy”s (hopefully by this evening so I can ship everything today) and I’ll be freeeeeee.

Part of the reason I’ve been able to make so many banners in just three days is because I haven’t left the house. The weather has been total crud this week so I haven’t been going on any Seawall walks, so I’ve been going a little stir-crazy. It’ll be worth it to have all of next week off though.

Some random things…

Gwen has been having a bad week. I’m not going to get into it because it’s definitely tmi but it’s been very hard for her, and also for me since she’s been so happy and easy-going for the past almost seven months that I wasn’t used to having a crying, clingy baby. Tuesday was literally the worst day of her entire life but she’s been improving since than, thank goodness.

Sym went away on an overnight camping trip with her class. It was weird, she normally spends a lot of time in her room, drawing and reading and watching Netflix (H2O: Just Add Water is ALWAYS in our “Recently Watched”), plus three nights a week she’s at her dad’s, so we don’t really see that much of her. You’d think it wouldn’t be strange that she wasn’t home last night but it really was. Taylor and I both felt “off” all evening. MISS YOU, SYM!

Claire is a feline disaster right now. She’s so decrepit that she does a terrible job of grooming herself. Her hair is really fluffy and fine so it tangles and mats really quickly and really close to the skin, and the only way to deal with it is to hold her down and shave it off. Eventually I plan on taking her to a real groomer but for now she looks like this.

Sorry, kitty cat.

  1. Oh hey, I know this feeling. Often, the dolly orders piled up until I thought I’d never get them done. Sometimes, I felt like smashing their silly little faces in.
    So glad you’re nearly done.
