Late Night Pressing Concerns

I have a t-shirt order to deliver in less than 12 hours and what happens? My toddler wakes up crying and wanders the house looking for me. (I know it’s some time near 1 a.m. while I write this)

What do you do when a red hot 350 degree shirt press is running?

Well, I lie down with him for 10 minutes consoling him back to sleep, grateful I had my rocket fuel coffee to keep me awake because under normal circumstances I would drift off to sleep with him, all comfy-cozy. 

And the press would still be on! Oh no!

Thankfully, that has yet to happen. And, I have the shirts done. Whew. It’s earlier tonight than last night when I finished working. I looked up at the clock and BAM, it’s 1:50 and I need to get up to work at my real job. 

Speaking of real jobs, I have been trying to convince my husband that I can quit mine and just knit and craft for money. Then I crunch the numbers and realize I have yet to crank out a profitable amount of work in a day. Bleh. I think profit should be my crafti-happiness.

Here’s a look at a few shirts I did tonight… 

   
    
This last one is for my brother. The only red-headed child out of my father’s 5 children. He was bound to get it, I think since our parents both are so Irish. I always wanted red hair like my gram and aunt but beings that I had a Filipino biological mother, that was not happening genetically. He is my half-brother, if you didn’t figure that out. I still want red hair. 

Speaking of hair, I just found this sneaky, silvery 6″ long grey in my head!! 

 I suppose it was bound to happen…I am cruising along through my 30s (soon to be 36). I am just surprised to find it growing for so long! Aging is starting to really come now. I find it interesting. The conundrum of holding onto youth. I don’t feel “old” at all!! What about you?

I think I should go to sleep now. We have a busy weekend ahead. I’m going to a dear friend’s retirement lunch we planned. Need to procure our Christmas tree (we pick and cut ours fresh!). Have last minute gifts to get so I can ship my families’ boxes out (now going Priority lol). Decorate the tree. Deliver orders. Make lotion and pack soap orders. Wrap gifts. Finish knitting a slouchy hat and crochet another bearded beanie. Make egg nog. Bake Cookies.

Um, perhaps not all of this is getting done…I must be crazy!

    You must have such interesting equipment in your house for your side businesses. Sometimes I feel old when I look or see college aged shenanigans. Other that that, I feel great. I did freak out a bit when I started noticing grey hairs. I have my daughters comb through my hair once in a blue moon to find those and pluck then out. I always feel like that line of monkeys grooming one another.

      Just stuff to make tshirts and prints 🙂 I didn’t think I would start to feel old when the greys started coming in! I think my boys would love to from me like monkeys however all my hair would come out! Lol
