Another week at FSAM

Well it is time to start thinking about getting ready to go to market again. I am only going every other Sunday this year and I pray that sales will stay up. I heard that over Father's day there were lots of customers there. I really do hope that the trend keeps up.

I would like to make up some REALLY long heat pads for the shoulders and neck. I have inserts cut, they just need to be sewn and filled. They take a lot longer to do because after I add some corn I have to stitch across the pad to make about 8 chambers. I can't wait to get more done up and get some covers made so I can sell them.

So in short if you have nothing to do on Sunday's stop on down to the Fulton Street ARTisan Market in Grand Rapids, MI It is at the corner of Fulton and Fuller.

God how I hate the inevitable paperwork. So I will admit it, I get assistance with childcare so that I can work. Well recently the state of Michigan decided that they don't trust the daycare people and want the parents to verify hours. Whatever, why should they trust me? lol Anyway, to do this you need a pin number and you need to know when you worked and when your kid was at daycare and blah, blah, blah. So they never sent me my pin number thanks to my caseworker screwing up my approved dates for daycare. I have been fighting with this stupid government for ummmm a month at least to get a pin number because if I do not verify hours my daycare lady does not get paid. So basically the poor woman has not gotten paid for watching April in over a month. Poor lady, I am so glad that she is understanding. Well anyway, I got my pin number yesterday. Should be good to go right? Wrong, I now need to have the times when April was dropped off at daycare after school and when someone else like my boyfriend picked her up from daycare. Of course I have no clue of these times cause ummmmm, I am a bad mom and don't pay attention. lol So now I wait again to talk to the daycare lady and get these hours so we match up. Cause guess what if she reports different hours than I do ummmmm she doesn't get paid.

OK Off my soap box.

Summer Time

Well summer is upon us and it is HOT out there. My computer is even overheating, which means I need to spend money on one of those laptop fans.

I worked 10 hours today, which is nice for the paycheck. But I wasn't planning on it and I left the AC off and the poor puppy was home in his crate with no water or AC.

Oh yeah, I haven't introduced y'all to our new puppy. Please meet our Miniature Pinscher, ZEUS!!!!
