Going Flippin' Bonkers
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
This is just to say that I am meeting my back side coming and going. My son has been sick for a month, thanks to dear old ex AGAIN. Our business is taking off and I am so thankful for that. Every spare penny goes back into the business but at least we are not worrying about paying the bills. It's just that it would be so helpful to have money to get to a level where we could hire enough people. We're about to expand and build a building. But there are my children to teach. A house to keep clean. Unfortunately, sleep is not negotiable. And we have an employee that cannot work full time. Any business owners out there know what that's like. Thankfully, he is very good. But he is a college student. And he's young. And he has a fiance that demands her Saturdays!!! And he took off a week with no notice during a product launch. And his aunt ( :-( ) is dying, sadly. But he is taking off again.
There is no time to diet. There is no time for me. My husband does not understand that my job is full time already. Thank you all for stopping by occasionally to check on me. I just wanted to let you all know why I've been scarce. The only thing I've done on here is keep my login streak going.
And you'll all remember the stove that was out for a month. Then there was Thanksgiving and Christmas. We didn't really have time for those holidays, but you can't not go see family. Oh. And my mom is getting married the 25th and she expects me to take my son, who, if he gets sick, takes a month to heal, who has Downs and ADHD and some autistic tendencies. He shouts and slaps himself in the head, thanks to the MMR (shouting age 3) and the D-TAP (age 5 1/2 slapping self). Thanks to his not eating solids or knowing how to drink, going anywhere is challenging enough without all the shouting and slapping himself. And I'm trying to potty train him. We don't have time to leave the business for this all day excursion. Oh. And she already expects us to call this new man, whom we hardly know, 'Pa'. Ummm. Not. Happening.
