Back to Work

As with any service business you have your slow times of the year, and with tattooing Nov. and Dec. are the worst. Everyone has Christmas gifts to buy with their extra cash. Normally we have money set aside for these "slack" times of the year, but with our move coming up we have decided that we need to stash away as much as we can for future home purchases.

So, Toby has taken on a second job for some extra cash in addtion to his tattooing job. He has gone back to part time welding and we are all taking a blow from it. It has totally messed up our family routine and Toby, not used to "hard work" anymore, is sore and decrepid. You don't get much excercise sitting on your butt chatting and drawing. :-)

We are very family oriented so this temporary situation has been hard on Summer and I too. We don't get to see him as much as we did before because his hours are different, and when we do see him is either moaning or sleeping. Looking back, I don't know how we ever got through the 6 - 6 kind of job.

Summer misses her daddy, so right when he walks in the door she's like flies on you know what. It's also harder on me because I don't have a helper never really know how much someone helps you until you loose the help.

The only plus to this whole thing is that we will have some extra cash AND that I manage to get school in without any "daddy" interuptions.
