Productive day!

For a day that didn't really start until 11am, today was extremely productive! First I had a cast meeting for Birth, a play by Karen Brody. Yes, I got a part, and I am so excited about it! I am the ensemble (along with just one other person), which means I get to be a ton of different roles throughout the play, rather than one main character. I will be a doula, a midwife, an OBGYN, and who knows what else. The play is on September 25th at 2pm and 7pm, for more info go to

After the cast meeting, I came home and put a very hungry/sleepy Hunter down for a nap. Daddy tried his best, but no amount of applesauce or oatmeal fills the tummy like Mommy Milk <3  So thankful that the nap strike seems to be over, he's down to one nap a day, but I can handle that. No naps a day, not so much. It was a rough week last week, between the no naps and the restless sleeping, I though I was going to go crazy!

While he was napping, I sewed a diaper cover, and promptly realized my printer had printed my pattern at 75%, so the size Large diaper was actually a little smaller than the Mediums Hunter is rapidly outgrowing. Oopsie. Oh well, I can sell it as a second quality item or something when I start my business. Oh, did I not mention I'm starting a business? Well I am, as of yesterday I officially have a retailer interested in buying my fleece training pants/diaper covers to sell in her shop! Since she's willing to place an advance order, I will be able to buy the machine I need to finish the diapers and make them prettier (a serger), and hopefully get this show on the road!

Then I wrote out a flyer for the other business I'm starting. Oh, did I forget to mention that I'm starting TWO businesses? Right, should probably fill everyone in on this one too. Starting (hopefully) this Fall, I will be teaching General Music Classes for homeschooled students in the Arlington/Mansfield area. Hopefully someone will be able to help me out with finding a location soon, that's really the only thing that still remains to be figured out. Everything else is stuff I have done before, and it's just a matter of putting together lesson plans and getting everything I need (like instruments). I'm going to start putting out flyers now (if anyone has an "in" with one of the homeschool groups in the area, please let me know!), and hopefully will be able to put together several classes by the time school starts!

Whew, busy day. Time to finish off my productive day by reading my script, it is so much more fun to read about birth than to actually live it :)


  1. WOOOOOO!! Congrats! on everything! Sounds like fun times are ahead! :D

  2. First of all, a check out is mostly a decoration for us just like the exact necklace. When we wear the exact various clothes, we require the exact various check out to complement our dressing. When we turn to a party, an suitable check out mostly makes us look a lot more elegant; when we go to accomplish certain sports, a sportive Vacheron Constantin replica watches makes us look a lot more energetic; when we turn to have a job interview, a formal check out makes us look a lot more punctual. You see, a mobile cell phone can't replace that.Tudor replica watches

  3. OK, I had trouble finding your email address to send a response to your comment on my last post, but I have to tell you, I CRACKED up. A pickle trumps all, in my opinion. So funny, and SO cute!

    By the way, you accomplished a WHOLE lot! Impressive! Good luck on the business! (Let me know when you start! I'm a cloth diaper junkie)
