Are we done yet?


I can’t believe that it’s been two weeks since my last blog post!  It’s not because I haven’t had anything to say or that I’ve given up on this blog, it’s just that I’ve been a little busy working in Hubby’s OUR upholstery shop filling an order for some seats for a new nightclub that will be opening soon here in town. 


In total, we made 80 of these cute little benches in both ivory and dark chocolate brown vinyl.  (It’s going to be a HUGE 3-story nightclub with an indoor Jacuzzi and swimming pool.)  For the last 3 weeks, Hubby and I worked side-by-side from 9am to 10pm.  Sometimes Hubby had to work on other things that came into the shop, and I had to take breaks to do things like laundry, make lunch, and help the kiddies with their homework.   But for the most part, our lives revolved around making these seats.

After about the first 30 or so, Hubby and I kept asking each other, “Are we done yet?”
 
We made so many taburetes, that eventually we lost count.  Hubby thought we had only made about 40, while I was pretty sure we had already made like 215.  Turns out, we were both wrong, and we made a teeny, tiny miscalculation.  We were supposed to make 40 of each color, but when Hubby went to count them at the nightclub, he saw that we had made 50 of the ivory and only 10 of the dark brown.  Oops!   Lucky for us, the nightclub owner didn’t mind. 

I don’t know how we did it, but we managed to finish the remaining 20 seats in just 3 days.  All I know is that I don’t want to see that dark chocolate vinyl for a very long time.  Or at least a week, since it is the most requested material in the shop.    

It has been a very long 3 weeks.   Our blood, sweat and tears went into the making of those taburetes. And I am so happy to finally be done with them.  I was starting to have nightmares about them multiplying like gremlins. 

Now I'm just looking forward to our lives returning to some sense of normalcy, with more time to do the things I love, like blogging, and even the things and I don't love, like housework. 

So...did you miss me?
