That Lazy Jane.

5:57 PM

So one of my favorite children's book authors is Shel Silverstein and he won me over with this poem and illustration:
And so when I laid down on the bench to rest from an intense game of "tag" with my favorite 5 year old in the whole world,
I couldn't help but relish in being lazy Jane just for a moment...
because mama has been going non-stop this month filling X-mas orders back to back trying to get them shipped in time
and let me tell you: the race against the clock is no easy battle-- in fact, it is ridiculous how fast a 24 hour period can evaporate before I have a chance to blink.
it is "tomorrow" already!
Custom order...

I set up a routine though...
I wait til' the house is quiet and everyone's hyper-butt have gone to sleep...
 then I get comfy in my work station as I lay out my "to create" list of orders...

And I have been alternating between:
 this show

this show
I just discovered this show and um, where have I been? It is HILARIOUS! I'm so hooked! :)
to play in the background and keep me company while I stay up working until around 2am and hopefully when I wake up at 6am to get to the cubicle, I snatch a pile like these off the couch to ship em' off. 

this has been the routine.

the routine has earned me some pretty sweet calluses on my hands :)
bandaids weren't cutting it, so a little duct tape did the trick.

Custom Orders

So Guess who is super excited to be on vacation from the day job starting next week?

and I am going to be on Lazy Jane Mode too
I think I have earned it.

what are you looking forward to about the holidays?
