So, proof that the life of a #Momprenuer is a lot about mom life.  I am writing this post the morning of August 6th.  Why?  Because I fell sound asleep with my son last night.  Even though I fought it hard, I was out in about a minute!  I also took about a 2-hour nap yesterday while my youngest napped and oldest watched a movie on Netflix.  I think the weeks of less then 6 hours of sleep night after night must have just caught up to me.  The thing is, even as I’m writing this, I’m yelling at myself in my head.  I have so much to get done before this weekend.  I can’t afford to sleep, quite literally!

Let me lay it out for you, I have 12 sets of coasters, 2 serving trays, 6 wine and appetizer trays, 3 pieces of wall art, and ideally 3 carved bowls to complete by mid-afternoon this Friday.  So far what have I actually completed, 4 sets of coasters and 1 serving tray.  I’m not willing to adjust my expectations yet!  Part of this is about needing as much product available as possible to sell at the Pop-up, but it is also about finding how much can I produce in a month working part time.  And with that, I’m off to spend a full day working on product!

Wins for the day: Getting caught up on sleep.

Fails for the day: Getting caught up on sleep.  For me this is a double-edged sword.  Getting much needed sleep (yay), getting further behind on my to-do list (boo).
