I am so happy it's Friday and I have tomorrow off. Work is just kicking my butt lately. It's been crazy with orders and I'm not finding time to get all my regular work done.
For this Saturday we have an order for 25 dozen donuts. Next Wednesday there is a standing order for 3 dozen and another order for 18 dozen donuts. The following Thursday I have an order for 36 dozen donuts. I'm kind of stressing out about getting them all done and trying to figure out how early I need to get there to have them done on time.
A few of you mentioned yesterday about the boss's wife only selling the property. I agree, it doesn't make sense to me. Not much I can do about it either way though so I'm going to try and not worry until I have to.
The doctors appointment yesterday didn't really give me any answers. I've been feeling drained and achy plus I've had some concerns about a few incidents I've had over the past year with pain in my arm and chest. She did an EKG in the office yesterday and said that looked fine but said that's just 30 seconds out of a 24 hour day. She did some blood work to check for other things. She said the things I described point to heart issues but she wants to rule out other things before she sends me to a cardiologist. I should know today how the blood work comes back. If everything is good there then she'll do a few more tests on Monday.

So as of yesterday, none of the comments you leave are coming to my email again. So again, if I normally respond to your comment in email and I haven't, that's why. I just get used to doing things a certain way and suddenly blogger throws things into a tailspin. I know not everyone likes getting email but I happen to love it. I'm old school and will never give up my email.
We got some news at work the other day. Apparently boss's wife has decided to sell the property. She's not selling the business, just the property. She showed up at the store last Saturday with a realtor. That was the first that boss's son (aka new boss) heard about it. Right now things are business as usual but it puts a lot of uncertainty out there. I honestly don't think it's going to be bought any time soon. The building needs some work. But if it does sell, either the new owner could just charge rent or they could kick us out altogether. There are times when I think it would be nice to just stay home for a bit. Being without health insurance is a big concern for me though. I don't know that I could afford to pay for it on my own and I'm at that age where going without it isn't the smartest idea.
Speaking of health insurance, I have a doctors appointment after work today. I've been feeling drained and achy plus have a couple concerns that I need to finally have checked out. I'm a huge procrastinator when it comes to making appointments.
Yesterday Liz asked how I did the writing on the plate. It's vinyl that I cut on my Cricut Machine.
Other than that, it's pretty much been same old same old. Be back tomorrow.

Or maybe the title should be don't stop playing. Either way, I'm going to show you what happened when I got it all together.
First I made some backgrounds using different colored inks. Then I stamped butterflies on them. This time I left the smallest butterfly off. You can't tell in the pictures but I also blended in some metallic ink and it gave it a nice shimmer.
Next was adding a stamped sentiment to the front of the card. When I took this picture I still hadn't added the sentiment on the 4th card.
Each background I created was mounted on a colored piece of cardstock. Inside, using the same colored cardstock I added a pop up butterfly.

A real quick post today.
The store was open yesterday until 3:00 and I did have to work. I was only there until 10:00 though. Then it was home for a quick nap. Amanda and Rob came over and Amanda cooked a wonderful dinner. I didn't take one single picture.
Today instead of sleeping in and enjoying a leisurely morning, I will be heading to work. The deli manager who normally works bakery on my days off is in the hospital so I have to go in. Hopefully I can get things done quick and leave.
I may or may not get caught up on emails and blog reading. If on the off chance I don't blog this week, you'll know that I'm asleep on the couch.
