It was like workin’ in a sweatshop!

Posted by: | Comments (0)
Well, let me tell you about the past two weeks in regards to my t shirt shops. CafePress added some dark sweatshirts and hoodies. I was (and still am) very excited about it. The dark hoodies sell well on Zazzle, and I know they’ll do well over at CP. I added them to my shops a couple of weeks ago. I have one, very large, job/occupation shop. I had to go in and tweak 2/3 of the designs I have for the sweatshirts. Then I added them to my other stores, Brainlintdotnet and PeaceLoveand( <--- that shop needs some love!). I worked on it whenever I could. At the mall when my kids were at the birthday parties. At home while they were watching a movie. After they went to bed and I stayed up until 1:30. Well, I'm finally done! Here are some of the sweatshirts:

Peace Love Candy Canes Hoodie (dark)


Off Duty Bitch Zip Hoodie (dark)


Bartender Barcode Zip Hoodie

So, now I can get back to adding all of my stuff on Zazzle. Which will definitely take me more than two weeks. Oh well, at least I’m never bored.

I think I may have a post coming up soon about the Onorato tax and the fact that they’re lowering it. I just need to have more than 10 minutes to myself to do it! Have a great Monday!

OH, I just edited this to add that this is my 100th post!!! Yeah for me!

OH, I forgot about a couple of things that happened on Friday.  The bad thing?  My payroll company took the entire payroll amount ($7,000) out of my checking account and paid my employees.  Um, payday is November 2oth.  They took it out SIX days early.  I about threw up when I pulled up my online banking!!!  Luckily the money was in there, but there are a lot of checks floating out there waiting to be cashed.  They fixed their mistake (well, enough where my account would be ok), but that was just another bump in the day.

Later on Friday night, I got an email from Zazzle, and here’s the graphic:
Well, I added the writing that says “Hey!  That’s my design!”  Anyway, that was a nice little surprise.  OH, and if you’re looking for aprons, they are $4 off at Zazzle if you use the code TURKEYAPRONS until November 25. (Just in case you can’t see the pic).
Look at that!  Two posts in 12 hours.  I’m getting there!

I didn’t fall asleep. Really.

Well, let’s see.  Today is Saturday, and I said that I was going to write again on Thursday night, if I didn’t fall asleep.  Well, the bad news is that I didn’t write on Thursday (or, depending on whether or not you like to listen to my drivel – that might be the good news).  I did NOT, however, fall asleep with the girls.  I came downstairs and worked.  Yes, I worked and worked.  And not on restaurant stuff, either.  I worked on t shrits.  And it was fun.  I mada a couple of new designs, but this one is one of my not-so-famous quotes:






So, definitely not a wasted evening.  I stayed up until about 1:00 am.  The next night, however, is a different story.  Last night I didn’t fall asleep in bed with Becca.  Came downstairs all ready to watch some grown up tv.  Ten minutes later…asleep.  Oh well.  

We went to the book fair at the primary school on Friday morning.  The girls really enjoyed picking out some books (of course they wanted more than the 3 each I let them get!).  As Chloe and I were in the car on the way there, we had an extreme ‘Why?’ moment.  If you are the parent of a three year old, I’m sure you know what this is.  Every. Single. Answer. Gets. A. Why.
Here’s how the conversation basically went:

“Mom, can i feed Mackie (the fish) when we get home?”
“Sorry, Chlo.  I already fed Mackie today.”
“Why?”
“Um, because he was hungry”
“Why?”
“Because everything needs to eat.”
“Why?”
“Because if things don’t eat, they’ll die.”
“Why?”
(deep calming breath) “I don’t know Chlo.  Because.”

Then it gets funny.  Really, Chloe just cracks me up.

‘Mom, dead fish go in the potty.”
“Right, Chlo”
“But not alive fish.  You can’t put alive fish in the potty.”
“No, Chloe.  You can’t put alive fish in the potty.”
“Yeah, because then they would get pee on them.”
“Right, Chlo.  They would get pee on them.”

Well that satisfied her.  We drive along, bee-bopping to the radio and enjoying the sunshine.  A few minutes later, I get this question.

“Mom, Do fish pee in the water?”
“Well, yeah, Chloe.  Fish pee in the water.”
“AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!”

So, there is some Chloe conversation for ya.

Since this post touched on sleep a little bit, I’m going to share this really interesting stuff about polyphasic sleep.  Polyphasic sleep basically is sleeping for 20 minutes every four hours.  And that’s it.  This gentleman actually slept this way for five months.  It was really interesting to read through how it went.  

OK, gotta snack before I go to bed!
