Yes, it's 11:30pm, but I should be working. Instead I'm taking abreak to make a much needed blog post. This post is all about the things I SHOULD be doing.
Christmas Card Hell
I'm making hand made Christmas cards and NYE Party invitations for one of my clients. I love crafting, but after the 100th card it starts to get tiring. Ive gotten thru about 1/3 of them. My goal is finishing tonight.
Yesterday I had a tamale party. Sarah had wanted to make tamales with me ever since she met me. I have never made them by myself. In my family we make tamales once a year, every NYE. I always make them with my mom, meaning I always play her soux chef. Also in Texas there are lots of Spanish shops with the dough pre made. It's a nice little shortcut. Here in Arlington that isnt the case. I had to make everything from scratch. Sarah and I cooked for 2 days. It was exhausting, but totally worth it. Our goal was 1 million tamales. We fell just short of it making about 100. This brings me to what I should be doing now. I should be cooking. I got a gig making 4 meals a week for this couple. It's about 2 hours of work and I make decent cash from it. BUT after cooking all day yesterday I have no desire to stand in front of a stove. I am supposed to deliver 2 meals to her tomorrow. Sigh.
Yep, sleeping is on my to-do list. I've started taking more of a nap like schedule versus a sleep schedule. I'm sure that's unhealthy, but it is what it is. I'm hoping to get 5 hours in sometime this evening.
Sending in Paperwork
I have all kinds of paperwork I need to send in various places. I need to print out this paperwork on my printer. which means I have to hook up my printer to my computer... sounds like a lot of work. Blah.
I have about 3 different crafts started right now. I want to finish them all and finally have some time to post to my crafts blog. I dont think that's happening tonight.
All in all I have a lot on my plate, but I love it. It's my personality to have lots to do and to spread myself out over a lot of projects. I can't help it. If I'm not busy, I'm miserable.
Okay, I'm off to tackle more Christmas cards!
