Sleepy..So Busy Lately! Whew.

July 22, 2008

I love my bed. So cozy! That’s where I’m writing this post from as I finish up another long day spent on the laptop marketing and building one of my many online business ideas. My right hand feels slightly carpal tunnelish..ouch! It’s been a few weeks and I have a bunch of minor things I’ve been meaning to blog about but probably won’t get to all of them this time around. My time has been consumed by so many things that just needed to be done above all other things, sadly including updating the site. (not that anyone missed me 😉 )

My mom’s getting married in the beginning of September (as I mentioned some post previously I’m sure), and I am her maid of honor. I have been working with my cousin and aunt to put together her bridal shower which is only weeks away now. I handmade all of her invites, am buying a huge deli meat and cheese platter for the shindig and am either baking or buying a cake. That has taken up a lot of my time lately! The invites are now in the mail and a marshmallow fondant cake test run was successful, so I’m all set for shower things for now! The bridesmaid dress I ordered from netbride arrived very promptly this week and fits wonderfully. It worked out very well because it arrived a month earlier than they quoted..fantastic!

My time was also consumed by one of my crafting projects, a needle felted dog. I had a woman contact me about making a mini wool replica of her and her husbands dog for their 7th wedding anniversary. He is currently serving in Afghanistan, and their anniversary is the beginning of next month. I was absolutely flattered by her request for such a special occasion, so of course I told her yes of course! I put a ton of time and heart into each craft I create, so between the invites and making this little dog I was so crunched for time! I needed both the invites and the dog out in the mail asap so everyone would get everything on time and be happy. I was so relieved when the mailman came n grabbed all that stuff from the mailbox..it meant it was all done! The little dog ended up adorable, and she was very happy…YaY!

Other than that it’s the usual time consuming stuff of my multiple entrepreneur type businesses all going on at once! Multiple websites to maintain and keep building on to, crafts business..etc etc. Usually I’d be happy to be kept so busy so I don’t have time to sit and think and just drive myself crazy…But, it’s summer! I want to be able to be a bum! I can’t allow myself to though. I know some people may think that since I’m working and freelancing from home I must be laying on the couch watchin soaps and eating chocolates all day. Not at all! Sometimes I wonder if I should drop all of it and find a normal 9-5 so that there was a clear cut start and end of the work day. When 5 o’clock rolls around I walk out the door and home to relax! I’m such a perfectionist that I get in these moods where I drive myself nuts with anxiety if I’m not sitting at the computer plugging away at one of my business attempts. “Omg, I shouldn’t be sitting relaxing right now..I could have added more content to one of my sites..which in the long run may contribute to it’s success!!” I’ve been sortof driving Ry nuts with it here and there. I’ll wake up some days and be on the computer from the time I climb out of bed to the time I climb back into bed. (And then some, if you count right now! 😀 ) I forced myself to set down the computer and just watch a show the one night and was just fidgeting, feeling the need to work on -something-…anything! I just want to be able to break out of debt and start paying more towards our July 2009 wedding..If I’m not working on something that may help finances, I’ve been getting anxious. UGH. I need a chill pill. I’ve been recommended St. Johns Wart to calm me some, which sounds pretty necessary..BUT I’m on Seasonal Birth Control pills, so I can’t. 🙁 The supplement apparently messes with the bc pills and makes them less effective.

I think that’s enough for now..I still have to update ya on my Doc appoint from last week (mostly healthy!), and my crazy 4th of July.. (it involved lots of kids, fireworks..and almost getting jumped by a plastered bum! Not-EVen-Joking. Omigee) I’ll try to do that this week!

BTW – Bob..you aren’t patronizing me. 😛
