At first I though getting 225 (potentially, 225 - that's the goal/max) pillows ready to be customized for the sale sounded difficult but that's actually been my solace, it's all the computer-geekery, like creating forms, setting up my online shop and writing blurbs about what I do that have proven, shall we say, not my strong suit. (In all fairness setting up the shop was something I procrastinated on for over a year and when I wished I had it done already, well, it wasn't. Note to self: remember procrastinating is dumb). I have been a bundle of nerves worrying about that one-week-to-go mark, which officially begins tomorrow. Mostly because I have been writing a new a to-do lists at least 6 times everyday and seem to keep putting the same things on the lists, over and over again. And to attempt to get through my lists I have been placating my kids with unlimited ipad time and bowls of ice cream. Of course they think that's great. And now that the day is dawning I feel relieved in a it will be whatever it's going to be sort of thing.
And today was a bit of a turning point and I got to cross off a good portion of my list (which is what i kept telling myself would happen "self" i'd say "there is going to be a day when you look at your list and you will cross a bunch of stuff off it). What can I say? I was right. Now I am getting excited to see what is on the other side of preparing for this endeavor. I am nervous too of course (but I won't go into the tailspin my brain can go into on that front. It's not fun nor is it productive). But I guess with all that I am back where I started - a fun little cocktail of nervousness and excitement. I have no idea when things will resume normally around here, or in general, but I'm excited for that too.
