I need a wife!

Or a secretary. Or a darn good housekeeper. Possibly all three. Today promises to be a great day at the shop. How do I know, you ask? Well, the big advantage to weekends in the shop, is that the last three hours I'm open, the kids will Not. Be. There. Te-he. Yes, everyone has been kind about the fact that I have a shop 'with kids included', but when your (my) children go into full jack-ass mode because they suspect I will not allow anyone else to meet 'psycho-mom' and I'm really trying not to frighten anyone (or have child services called down upon my head) it gets a wee bit stressful. So, hell yeah, I'm looking forward to weekend afternoons. Today's project will be to take a quick inventory of patterns and such that shockingly already need to be reordered. I honestly had no idea the Frog Tree scarf would be so popular. There will also be kits available for the 'Dream in Color' baby sweaters, "Tulip" and "Rocketry". I need to get another order together for their yarns as well. Are you seeing where a wife/secretary/housekeeper would be a huge bonus right about now? I am slowly getting 'the hang' of the business, but I have never enjoyed struggling while there were onlookers. so this process is good and humbling. I'll add to this post later... now it's time to get "ready for work"...

I said this same thing to Ken a while back. I need someone who will make my breakfast, bring me my coffee and let me ravish them any time I want! Wives are just the best. thing. ever.
Hoping to see you soon, Cami. I'll ring you up in a bit.

Totally understand! Introduced a friend to son yesterday and he went into show-off mode. I had a few of those whisper strong threats in his ear moments, without letting friend see angry mom. Can't imagine a whole gaggle!

Oh man...I *so* relate. We just got back from a mini-vacation...the first one we've braved with all 4 kids in tow. Talk about psycho!!! It actually went pretty well...but...we had moments :o)

You and me both, Cami. Best of luck . . .

And ohhhhhh . . . Dream in Color baby sweaters! {Sigh} What must a girl do to get a store nearby to carry kits for those? lol

Big hugs . . .

mmmm, Dream in Color..... any way to mail order that from ya? :) Except then you'd need that wife to run to the post office on top of everything else! (and I'm intrigued by the Frog Tree scarf.... what pattern are those?)

Camilla: I need a secretary also, well probably more like a personal assistant. If s/he knew how to play Nintendo, then s/he could double as nanny as well. Of course, I would have to win the lottery in order to afford such a person, but one can always dream!

Remember to send me the details of the 'ladies'.
