I'm going to call these my Thursday thoughts:
At some point yesterday our house looked like someone broken in - it. was. that. bad. Mess has never bothered me. And I find myself having to choose between showering, eating, working, or cleaning - and generally cleaning is the first thing that gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. But alas, we invited someone over to make us clean. That's what we do when we need some incentive - invite someone over. Now I just need to pretend that someone is coming to spend the night in my sweat shop - it's hazardous back here.
It's 6:45 on the morning of Halloween - and Simon doesn't have a costume. It's on my list of things to do today. Just am facing the reality that I'm going to be that mom who waits until the very last minute. But I operate SO well when it's crunch time - really why bother starting early? I'm addicted to cortisol; it's my drug of choice.
Honestly, my morale is pretty low right now. I was telling Tom the things I've made for Christmas gifts so far and telling him the people he's "got" for Christmas - and he asked me what I wanted. We decided that I need some maidens. If I'm to be a woman of the Proverbs - then I'm going to need some maidens y'all. I've been able to juggle a lot of things - it's generally how I function best. Lately though it's been getting harder to babysit, tutor, sew every waking moment, take care of my body that's growing a baby, be a decent wife, adequate housekeeper, and mom to the little 1.5 year old running around my house who just wants to go bye-bye. For this reason, I've decided to make next Friday the last day that I'll take orders for Christmas and will change the way I run my shop, at least for a little while.
I think that's all - I started this post early this morning. Now 2:15, I've completed several sewing orders and have made more progress on Simon's costume than I had anticipated at this point. Y'all have a safe and happy halloween.
