I’m finding that is a great motivation for cleaning. I’m going to have family coming over in less than 2 weeks and my place is a mess. In my guest bedroom has things for the November sale piled on top of the bed. So I have been busy tagging and packing them in plastic bins so come November, all I have to do is pack them in my car.
Except my printer decide to act weird. Weird as in I can typed out the care instructions, but when it comes to printing them out, it won’t do that. I quit fighting with my printer when I was starting to get a headache. A couple of hours later, when I came back to the computer, I turned it on and BOOM, my printer started printing out the instructions. And of course, this morning, when I went to check my emails, it happened again. Good grief. I was able to cancel the print before I ended up 50 copies of the instructions. But at least now, I have motivation to make more slippers.
This however is not the first time, that this happens to me. And I can tell you that it is getting annoying. I think my “Honey Do” list to my boyfriend is getting bigger. I can already see him shaking his head at me for this.
Anyway, the other day, I received word from the place that sells my stuff, that I sold 17 dishcloths. After my little happy dance, I realized that they were calling me that because they need me to replace them soon. I did the calculations. I need 30 dishcloths for the November Sale, plus 17 for the store, which equals to 47. I might as well make 50 of them. I also decide to do them all at once so in September, I can concentrated on the fuzzy scarves.
I’m also suffering from a case of insomnia. Yesterday, I was thinking of seeing a movie. I tried to talk myself into renting a movie from my DVR (Digital Video Recording) device because it was cheaper than getting in my car, going to the theatre, paying for tickets and popcorn.
Then I realized that I would be staring at the basket of cotton yarn for the dishcloths and a pile of cards where I have to put my company stamp, white paper inside the dark cards, and find the envelopes, during the movie.
I ended up deciding just go out, take a day off. Don’t worry about the orders, and company coming. I even worked on my own blanket last night and it really felt nice. But unfortunately my insomnia still stayed with me. Oh goody.
Meanwhile, I hope everyone had a good weekend.
