ordinarily, I would say working on my day off is lame. But today, I am going in so my newest designer can earn her design certification and an extra percentage point in commission and her makeover bonus.

big day for Donna!!

know what’s awesome?

that moment when you help your designer close a $65K order and have her biggest month ever, with 6 days left to go.

nothing in it for me except seeing her happy and successful!

what an excellent day!

holy crap, my kids are awesome!

usually when they come to work with me, it’s for a short day and I have lots of time to devote to them.

today, they came for our Saturday Sock Hop and because wonderdad is spending the day drinking ALL THE BEER at the long beach beer fest.

but work has been busy and the designers have needed my help, and the girls have been completely independent and lovely!

no bickering or quarrels. no declarations of boredom or asking to go home.

they have been terrific!

I gotta go tell them!
