I’m officially out of steam. I spent today decorating the candy cane cookies and did not get very much boxing done. This thing is starting to feel like it’s going off the rails a bit. My slowness is going to result in cramming down the line, unless I can make up some time. Thank god for Munchery… After not having a dinner plan on Monday, I sucked it up and ordered meals for the rest of the week. I’m in no shape to cook, and after the usual “what do you wanna eaaaatttt” conversation with The Husband earlier in the week, I’m so NOT leaving food to chance. I need fuel, and I really really don’t like eating fast food. It just makes me feel crappy. And after being down for the count due to food-related drama once already, I’m just not interested in taking the risk.
I typed up my cookie list for tags, printed them on vellum and The Husband cut up the card stock and decorative papers while I cleaned up the kitchen and all the icing mess. I went upstairs to run the tag pieces through my xyron so they are quick to assemble and what do you know…the unopened cartridge I have on hand is for laminating, not adhesive! OMG. I’ve got no xyron adhesive left and I’m 2 tags short on my sale boxes. I’m going to have to do a couple at work so I can deliver them Thursday, and try to get a replacement cartridge for Friday. I’m a little bit panicked.
Anyway, I’ve got to get to bed at a decent hour tonight, for life goes on. Cookie madness is officially over, and although there is a bunch left to do, it’s back to work at my day job tomorrow. I’ll be able to finish my packaging and tags tomorrow night and Friday so I can still deliver Saturday. It’s not ideal, but I’m not totally worried yet.
The little set backs are starting to get to me, but I’m trying to keep my calm. More to come!
