Then there was packing/moving week - long days of keeping up on the work at my day job and packing up the office and moving it. Our new office space is huge and beautiful!
Now it is catch-up week at the day job... So much still needs to be unpacked, typed, worked on... and did I mention that my jaw is still sore, so I am not eating right - still eating soft easy to chew foods... and I am OH SO TIRED!!!! And totally behind on my other jobs and pursuits outside of the office. SO OVERWHELMED!!!!
Then I feel guilty. My friend B has been just as busy - if not more busy... she has three little ones - who don't always sleep through the night. She goes home from work late, and chases after them while I sit on my sofa struggling to stay awake, just because the clock says it is too early to go to bed... I am too tired to paint and she is putting three little ones to bed so she can sit and do more work that she brought home with her. And I struggle to get to work on time (although the construction has had more to do with that, lately!) and walk in all blurry eyed trying to get to the office coffee maker just to find she has been there already for a few hours. She looks bright-eyed and ready to conquer the world. I would just like to accomplish something without getting in my own way.
In other news: I am starting a new business... paperwork and legal stuff is almost done. It has been almost done now for almost three weeks... I haven't done much on it in the last few weeks... It would seem that I ripped my "super-cape" sometime recently and just not feeling like a Wonder-Woman lately. (Yes, I know Wonder-Woman didn't wear a cape... yes, I know I mixed my metaphor... I am just un-super like that!) But I have ordered most of the supplies needed. I just have to finish up the printed materials, create a marketing champagne and create the samples for the business - and then I will launch! Soon. Very soon.
I am still dating. No dental surgery will keep me from dating!!! No sore muscles and tired body from moving boxes and furniture will keep me from a date! No ripped super cape will stop me from dragging my butt out the door for a couple of hours. A nap before... sleepy time after... heck I have even fallen asleep on a few of those dates during the past few weeks. Oh well. This girl needs some play time!
So all of my creative energy has gone into the move and the decorating the new office and the business start-up. I don't have much to show for it all yet. But I will, soon. I better get off this computer and get moving! Before you all get antsy and start sending me harassing emails to motivate me.
Oh yea... and the art center is hosting classes... and shows... and is getting a computer lab donated to it soon! All very exciting.
And the FMCC Art Festival committee is close - very close to submitting our grant application and tightening up the pre-grant planning.
And the big political spring dinner is Thursday - I will be helping set that up- then I will shoot over to my son's Drama Club Banquet for all that exciting/fun stuff!! (and I have to make a dessert for that!)
So I have keep myself a little bit involved still in all my activities. Just not as hands on as usual!
ok - off to take a nap? go on a date? or paint? or work on my business start-up? or work on the business that I already maintain? or? or? or? . . . .
So dat ing... yes I am still thinking about men - they can be so distracti ng! I will admit, the dating nightmare stories are greater in ...
So... dental surgery equaled a tired girl for a long week - I continued to go to my day job, but went home and slept after that. Then ther...
"Use it up, wear it out, make it over, or do without." So I remade my water bottle (or two) into a doll. (Obviously I am out o...
It has been a week and a half since I posted, last. Let's see if I can catch you up: The coolest brother in a world just had a birthday...
I have NOT had a head/chest cold that was this bad in years! Maybe I've had a slight cough, a few sniffles, last year I had the runny ...
