Running on empty

Who knew that taking time off from work could be so exhausting? This week I have been working with my mom to get some stuff made so we can finally start selling. After 3 trips to Joann fabrics and hours in the sewing room, we still have nothing. I often listen to my mom complain about what it's like to live with my grandparents, who are slowly going senile. It's one thing to listen, but to actually be there all day every day and actually watch everything she complains about makes me want to go home and hide in bed. I love my family, but sometimes they can over-react, especially my mom. I've played mediator this week, and I'm not sure I'm doing anything except stressing myself out.

But I still have some hope. We received the anti-static bags we've been waiting for, so Hubs and I can tear down the servers taking up so much of my dining room and get them to a friend to sell this weekend. Besides another trip to the fabric store to get ribbon, I don't think we have any more shopping to do before we actually get all of our pouf ottomans and t-shirt shrugs ready for sale this weekend as well. We had some major setbacks with both the ottomans and the shrugs, but I think we have overcome them and tomorrow will go much better. Here's to hoping.

Thankfully I've been able to enjoy parts of this week - there are two hummingbirds fighting for the feeder in my grandmother's backyard. They've been pretty entertaining. I've also enjoyed getting addicted to tennis on Wii Sports. Hubs and I can kick some computer butt :)
