I feel so far behind pretty much everything I should be doing right now! I moved over the weekend and am now officially a resident of Ventura County. It's a relief to have the moving of possessions over with, and I'm gradually putting everything away in its rightful place in my new (again) home, but everything else feels like it's suffering: e-mail, blogging, Lightroom, photography promo, blog redesign ideas, etc. So I'm trying to play catch-up today... sort of...
This morning I got up at 10:30 a.m. (I know, I'm a bum, but I was at a five-hour seminar yesterday and didn't get to bed until 1:30 a.m. ...) and went to Starbucks and then wandered Anthropologie for about an hour. I know, not exactly productive, but, um, HELLO! It's Anthropologie! It's my happy place.
Now I'm home for another 4 minutes before I am off to meet my mama for lunch at her office. Gah! I have a custom order to work on (due yesterday), some orders to place and ship out, e-mails to catch up on, and various random tasks associated with moving (changing my mailing address with the post office and all my credit cards and bank, cancelling my Hulu Plus account at my old place -- stuff like that). Not to mention I have about 100 things from Sal Cincotta's seminar yesterday that I am super excited to implement with Anna Delores.
Why aren't there 40 hours in a day? And I'm able to operate on two hours of sleep?
And I'm a crazy-productive lady who won't rest til she's all caught up?
Oh yeah, because I'd lose my mind...
I leave you with this oh-so-appropriate thought from Jess Lively's "wish I knew Wednesday" insights (which I so love to receive in my inbox! Always uncannily relevant!):
"In an online world filled with pretty lookbooks, products, workshops,
and blog features it feels like self-employment is a golden land of
glitter and coffee shop meetings. But the truth is that self-employment, as many of you who already have businesses know, is difficult, hard, and yes, totally worth it in the end."
I promise to play catch-up with you guys soon, too -- really, I swear!
