Would you like Cheese with your whine?


I'm tired. All I want to do is sleep. I just finished a rush sewing job. I had a week to alter 8 drapery panels. It's not really hard, just time consuming. So I work my 40 hour day, then fight traffic and go home to sew all night. What fun. I have to keep reminding myself that the money is worth it. The more I pay off my credit cards, the more likely it is that I can stay home when I get preggers and have a baby. I just wish my hubby was more helpful. You know, maybe clean the house a little bit? Take care of dinner or the laundry without me having to beg? I finally gave up and started making crock pot meals and telling him to fend for himself. Sigh.


So, what do I do? I accept another rush job. This one is to make 12 clothing samples for a golfwear designer. I've got until January 12th to do it, but I have so much other stuff to do between now and the day after Christmas. Somebody shoot me please! Please? Pretty Please? Or come and clean my house for me?

How do you get all of these sewing jobs? Although its time consuming, at least its a hobby you enjoy.

It's all word of mouth. I have a friend who has his own (drapery) install company and when designers are in a bind, he sugest me and I'm not shy about telling people I sew.

Whine away!

Make sure you don't wear yourself out, you could be pregnant any second now, right?

You are right, it could be any day now. According to the formuals, my probable date of ovulation is Saturday, so, dang, I guess I just have to have sex every day for the rest of the month. Oh, what a hardship!

LOL, you make getting pregnant sound very inviting, even to this decidedly, over the reproductive hill, gal!

Good luck and enjoy :)

Ha that is funny... not the overworking part but the getting pregnant right now part!

If I lived close, I would bring you dinner and clean your house. Hang in there. When you have your own business and can make your own hours, it will be worth it. And good luck on baby making.
