i've started doing mail order again this week. so this is currently what our dining room looks like.
after danny and i were married, and alanna and i moved to nc, i took over doing all of the mail order for his online merch store. my mother-in-law dubbed me his "mail order bride", haha. i did it from our home, for 2 and a half years, up until i had malcolm. but after he was born, i just didn't have the time or energy to keep up with it. we get a lot of orders, and it is pretty time consuming. so danny started doing it again from his office.
my husband shares his shop/warehouse space with another guy who also owns a small record label. they just got his online merch store up and running, so he has hired me to process all of the orders. i like doing it, and it will be nice to have a little extra spending money (which i will be putting towards our trip to disneyland in october!).
in related news, malcolm has been sleeping like a champ! he's in bed between 9:30 - 10:30 pm, and he stays asleep all night until about 9:30 am. yay! it was my goal to have him in bed around 9 pm, so this is pretty amazing (remember when he was keeping me up until 5 am?!). i will work on mail order at night after malcolm is in bed. right now i'm working on catching up about a months worth of pre-order items, so i've been missing out on my hubby time. danny and i usually watch a program together after the kids are in bed. but once i get through all of these orders, i will only have to spend an hour or less a night on it. pretty sweet.
