{ back to school }

It's been a little hectic around here this past week.
To be honest- my internet was acting crazy {yes, again!} but I didn't even notice.
If you didn't know.. I have another job too!
I am a full time first grade teacher.
This was our first week back to school and I feel like it kicked my tail.
I haven't slept so good in years.
My eyes were closed by the time by head hit my pillow.
I am starting my 11th year ..
you would think I would be used to the first week back!
I have been getting up at 5:30 each morning
{that's enough to kill me}
to work on orders for an hour each morning before getting ready to go to school.
I have managed to keep up and all orders are being processed on time.
Whooo Hoooo!
It's really quite busy this time of the year with
back to school gifts for teachers
from the mom of notepads
address labels for new college students
bag tags for kids {of all ages!}
and stickers to label supplies.

My internet is back working
{or so they say!}
and now my phone is acting all crazy
and won't deliver my emails.
Will it ever end???
I do remember a time we didn't have all this fancy-smancy technology!
I gotta go to bed...
cause it's a school night :o)

You are an inspiration to me!!! You have a business AND have a full time job. I have been creating odds and ends to put in my etsy shop but haven't yet because I am alway so tired that I am afraid that I won't be able to keep up-that is-if I get orders...perhaps I am a bit presumptious:)! ha!

I work full-time at a university and take the train an hour and fifteen minutes into the city and out of the city each day. I wake up at 5:15am and am exhausted by 6:45pm when I get home.
How do you do it?

Wow - you are amazing! To be able to juggle all of that and still keep your sanity...that's pretty awesome. :)

Just received my order yesterday, and I am in love with the notecards! So cute! I am currently fighting with my 4 year old daughter over them - she wants to keep them for herself. :) I think I'll have to order her some of her own. Thank you again so much!
