Hi everyone! Sorry to be MIA for a bit there. For those of you that do not know what I do for a living, I'm a mail carrier for the post office. I'm actually a substitute mail carrier. As a sub, I'm only guaranteed one a day week to work. Well, a few weeks ago I started loaning myself out to another office in another city and have been working like a mad dog ever since! I mean working 5 or 6 days a week! Which is a lot when you are used to having a lot of time on your hands to craft and play.

Not only have I been working in a new office but I have been learning a lot of routes. I know 4 of 8 routes in the new office and 5 of 6 in my old office. So I know 9 of 14 routes! Which is a lot when you consider that each route has 400 to 700 boxes/residences each and are at least 30 miles long or more. It's a lot to assimilate and with this heat I've been wiped out at the end of the day. That and my personally owned mail van has been acting up a lot I've had other things to worry about and not been feeling very crafty. I did learn something new last week, I learned how to do a tune up on my mail van (thanks bro!). See, here's the proof:

So there's my excuse. I hope that as I learn my new routes and become comfortable on them that I will have more time and energy to craft. Here's to waiting for fall and some relief from the heat!

You go girl!!!! I'm proud of you!!! My DH gets frustrated with me when it comes to vehicles so he deals with them. Hopefully you'll be able to craft a little more. :)
