Whatcha doin'?

Made some new molds yesterday. I'm really putting the push on to have a good selection of inventory when September hits. I always find myself scrambling when it comes to the fall. In the past, I didn't think about the holidays or having inventory for the holidays until October - way too late for customers. I've been thinking about inventory and the holidays since July.

So, I tell myself - work work work!

This summer was much busier than others and no vacation. Why? TBC (that's The Bean Counter hubby) has been out of work. Good news, last month he found work but it involves a great deal of travel (ugh) - while we're not crazy about that, we will manage.

The Teen spent the summer learning how to drive - with Triple A. I tried to teach him but I couldn't. I remember when I learned how to drive how my father yelled - now I know why. There's alot to be said for a driver's ed teacher who has a set of brakes on their side of the car. I think I could have taught him if I'd had that set of brakes.

So, that's what I've been doin' - whatcha been up to? Leave me a note and let me know if you're doin' any early holiday preparations or maybe you're teaching a teen to drive?

Sorry that the Bean Counter husband has been out of work (and as a fellow Bean Counter, I think I resent that moniker...haha)...I think it was very smart of you to let someone else teach a teenager to drive - I learned from my parents, and it was just a little stressful (to say the least).

We've been fortunate enough to not be affected by issues with the job market, so we've been able to keep up with our normal travel plans - we hit Alaska and Cozumel this summer.

I hope things continue to improve for you guys! He may have to travel a lot, but your hubby's got a job, which is wonderful news!

So glad to hear that TBC has a new job. Even though traveling a lot is no fun, being out of work isn't either. And a teen! Well, I am about 5 years away from driver's ed as my son informs me. Not looking forward to that hell! I am going to Las Vegas for a trade show for my day job, I leave on Saturday. Never been, so it should be fun. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day! Erin

No teens here, but I am teaching a 6-year-old how to fish this next Saturday. Oh, and I still remember my Driver's Ed instructor putting a quarter on the dashboard at the beginning of my first lesson and when I asked him why he said, "I just bet God that you're going to kill us in the next 15 minutes." And he HAD the extra set of brakes on his side. So MEAN!

Bean Counters are interesting people, aren't they? Glad he's employed again! That's always good news! I'm just busy cleaning out. I am trying to get rid of stuff, and I mean get rid of a lot of stuff. I feel better and I'm making a dent.
