Almost time to gather the kids up and head out for class. I have to start planning now because Pari will find some reason to delay, then Kiyan will need a last minute change, etc. So out the door by 4:30 means planning and having everyone prepped by 4:15 at the latest, because I still won't make it out the door with these two until 4:30.

I repaired the piston thing on the screen door (can't remember what it's called now), the screen door blew open over the weekend and bent the shaft. $9 at Home Depot bought another one, and maybe five minutes to install it using half of the old hardware and half of the new. I also ordered four more cans of spray tack from Midwest Sign and Screen Supply in KCMO. It's nice knowing where to get this sort of stuff for the business. And I'm smart enough to order when I open the last can rather than when the last can is out, so sometime this week 4 more cans will arrive that will probably last me for 4-6 months, depending on how many hemp insert orders I get.

I got the shipping quote for Singapore, and all of the packages mailed today, so all is going well. I even got my homework done.

What would you get from Sign and Screen Supply that could be used with diapers? That sounds odd.

Spray tack, it's an aerosol that temporarily adheres the layers of hemp french terry together so I can cut, serge and sew them into inserts for the diapers. It's like basting spray that quilter's use, except less than half the price they pay at Hancocks. Adhering the layers together is one of the things that allows me to make a superior and better looking product.

Ah. I was just afraid something like that would get on a babies skin.

It comes out in the first wash, and is between the layers anyway. It's just a sticky spray that washes out,which makes all the lint stick to my hands when I'm tacking layers together.
