Topsy Turvy

It's one of those mornings: no coffee, no music and no more morning. Where did it go? My child chose to sleep in until 10:00 today, then I had a conference call with my web designer from 10:00-11:15. Then there was another phone call, lunch and arranging a play date for J at 3:00 as it is too late for her to go to school today (lunch at 12:00 then nap from 1:00-3:00... I don't think so). Now it's 12:35 and I am finally getting into the studio.

All of the glass got moved yesterday and two of the new shelves were assembled and installed. Today is for scrap glass storage, and signing/packing of the order for Canada. That one is dragging out a lot. I am reluctant to ship without the check clearing, but really, what are the odds that it is not good now? They know I was going to wait to deposit it so they wouldn't send a bad one. I overnighted it to my bank and I think I will just go ahead and ship their order tomorrow.

Last on the list for today is a full Morceaux de Verre fuse load and design of the back of the postcards for the Prairie Arts Festival in Chicago at the end of the month. We'll see how far I get in this time-warped day.

Is the child ill?

Naw. I am just of the opinion that sleeping in should be cherished as we spend so much of our lives ruled by the alarm clock and unable to do it. So if she wants to sleep in and we miss a bit of "school" now, so what.

Next year she has to be there every morning by 8:30 or we are punished somehow (fined? flogged? publicly humiliated? I don't know) and then the following year Kindergarten is the beginning of the rest of her bell-centered childhood. Makes me sad just to think about it.

Maybe she'll grow up to be an artist, and then stay up all night, and sleep all day...
