When you're a natural optimist, waking up in a not-so-fabulous mood can throw you for a loop. Thought I'd see about blogging my way out of a morning funk. We'll call today's blog post a little journal entry. Combined with a list. (Lucky you!)
And because my parents will be reading, I'm fine, thank you. Nothing to be worried about. Just have been so busy with work that I can't keep up and feeling behind all the time just really freaks me out. So first note on my "feel better already" list: I'm lucky to say "I have a ton of work." The alternative? Not such a good thing.
Today's the last day of pet sitting 20 or so minutes from home, and so I could, at any minute, start packing my things, tidying, and pretty much go. However, I woke with a serious headache, and now that my puppy pal has been out for her morning stroll around the yard, and I've got coffee, I'm thinking to return to bed. What would you even call that? A nap this early in the morning. Is that even allowed?
After I decide about going back to bed or not, and eventually head back home - whenever that may be - the first order of excitement is to pick up my new business cards from the printer. Do you know how long I've been without business cards? No? Yea, I can get by with silliness like that when there are no shows to set up for. But in case you missed it - because I haven't advertised it as thoroughly as I normally would - our Art House show, September Soirée, is tomorrow and one must have business cards. And I shall. Was thrilled when the printing house's graphic designer emailed me a couple of compliments on how pretty it is. Actually she called it beautiful. (Sorry - remember, I'm trying to elevate my mood. Compliments from strangers help in that arena, right?)
Another thing I have to do that I'm looking forward to is going to storage to pick up some display materials for tomorrow. Velvet for my table, little gift boxes to go with purchases, some wooden structures to hang jewelry on. It's fun to go there. Like to visit my stuff. :)
After that, the inventory needs to be organized. Gotta' make sure the items listed on Etsy stay home and not at the show. And that'll be fun, right? I mean, playing with my goodies is always a fun thing!
Setup is at 4 today. I'm looking forward to seeing my artist friends. It's been a long time since I've seen some of my artist friends!
And finally? After all that's done? I get to hang with Mr. Pie and put him to bed for the evening. We'll see how that goes - I'm not necessarily brushed up on that skill these days. But what a way to end a week, eh?Come out tomorrow and say hey, 'kay?
