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).
