This summer has been crazy.
I am sure we would all say that.
I mean really, it is August already.
One would think that I would be blogging more than I have.
I mean it is summer, and we really don't have a pressing scheduled.
This is what happened to me over summer break.
I got a job.
I worked up until the day before Baubi was born,
and she was ten days late.
After that being a mom was my job.
it has been my full time crazy job for almost 15 years.
I was not looking for this job,
it came and found me.
I used to work for a friend who made coats.
She had a store at one of the ski resorts and her company made coats.
When Baubi was a baby I would sew her hats.
She had matching hats for her coats,
and that is what I would sew for her while Baubi would be
sleeping an playing in her crib.
I did it for several years and then stopped about six years ago.
In June I got a call from her.
I saw her name on my phone and thought...
Does she need hats?
Nope she was working for another company, and they needed a part time seamstress.
their full time one wanted to stay home with her son during summer break,
they needed someone to fill in for her three days a week.
I was honestly flabbergasted.
I told her that I had to talk to Good Looking about it.
Now as some of you may know being a stay at home mom is not a lucrative position.
We have been trying to get out of debt and this little part time job would certainly help on that front.
I went in for the interview my first in over seventeen years.
I am sure I must have sounded like a dork.
When I heard that other people were coming in for the position,
I got competitive about it.
Now I am normally not a very competitive person.
When it comes to my sewing ability, I guess I get a little defensive about it.
I sent her an email and apologized for being a dork,
and telling her again how awesome I am.
Well you already know the rest of the story because I told you.
I got the job.
I work for this company, I get to make dress ups all day long.
I get to be covered in sequins, and sparkles.
I get to make all the cute fluffy things and get paid for it.
The only bad thing is I had to sign a
Oh the things I could be putting on this blog, you would die
from cuteness, and I am not even lying.
As you can tell from my posting,
I have not conquered the world of a working mom.
I am tired and grouchy.
I feel like the girls are losing a little bit of their innocence, and it is my fault.
I guess that is the quandary of all working moms.
How to make it all work.
I do have somethings to show,
and I still have openings in my swap if you want to play.
I want to say that I will be back tomorrow with a new post and a tutorial.
But part of me thinks their will be a breakdown somewhere in the day,
and that plan will be for naught.
We will see how that goes.
