I am having one of those moments . . . I am sitting at the computer working on updating the MyCutSearch.com database with new cartridges, just like I did yesterday, and I am looking at my craft room/sewing room/office and I have things that need to be ironed, pants that need to be mended for my daughter, crafting supplies all over everywhere that need to be cleaned up and organized. Plus, I know that there is a pile of laundry to do, the house needs to be cleaned and oh so much more on my “to do list”, but what am I doing today while my husband and daughter are at a baseball game? Sitting at the computer entering data into the MyCutSearch.com site to make cartridges searchable. I only have 20 left and then I will be caught up on all of the cartridges that are available on the Cricut Cartridge Library (they still have not posted the handbooks from last month’s Hello Thursday release so there is nothing I can do about those . . . and who know how many more will come out this Thursday)
But even once I am “caught up” I will not be done. There are images and cuts that people have contacted me letting me know I missed, or additional features people would like to see added. So here I sit in my basement on a Sunday afternoon, with a pain in my shoulder so bad that one of my fingers and my thumb are going numb as I type, entering data into the website.
I guess this is my way of venting . . . especially to all of those people who talk about how we are doing what we do for the money . . . what money?!?! The small amount that we get off of ads? If I did the math, I would be working for a couple of bucks an hour or less this whole weekend.
So for everyone that says we are doing this for the money, I just want to let you know that I could be making a LOT more if I would stop doing this and would have gone into my “real job” this weekend.
