"Does Miss Mermaid know,
She is made of sausage
And a friend from the sea?"

(Note: When I googled 'crazy mermaid' I got this pic. You MUST look at this guy's other Japanese kid's lunch haikus. Awesome!)

I like to keep busy, for sure. But seems like the past couple months have been craaaazy busy. What with craft fairs every other weekend and my day job, i've been using every day off either working in my studio or selling at a craft fair. Whew!

So, I was looking forward to July... no big fairs until August. I thought I would relax and beef up my web site, etc. But noooooo.

We decided to move into a bigger house, and to push ourselves into motion, gave our notice on July 1. You know what that means... we are near panic as we continue to try to find a place to live (housing up here is nuts, have to race tons of other folks for the good ones).

Meanwhile, the current land lady wants to show our place in a few days. Hahahaha. We haven't done a bit of house cleaning for the past couple months, busy as we have been. Add that to the list of things to do.

And suddenly I am working extra hours/days in the office to cover for a lady on vacation... and still vending Sundays in Trinidad. And now I DO have a pending craft fair to prepair for. Of course, Barney continues his crazy 12-15 hr days, 6 or sometimes 7 days a week.

Needless to say, things are a little tense around here... but I fear by month's end we will both be totally insane.

Good thing we have the Crazy Happy Lunch Mermaid to see us through... sigh...
