Current Struggles.

May 18, 2015

Angelica, Meghan and I are challenging ourselves to blog every day this month.  Want to join?  Please do! Today’s prompt: Current Struggles.

Well this prompt certainly couldn’t have had a better timing.

And my answer is going to be a short and sweet one without any fun graphics.  Sorry.  But this is just the life right now.

I have allowed myself to become overwhelmed with work. Once again.  Something happened around mid-week last week that overtook all of my perfect level of progress and turned it to shit.  Seriously.  I feel super behind on everything and my house and workspace are a disaster.  And it doesn’t help that I have really strong desires to sew up new items for sale and I can’t get to them because I have too many other things standing in my way.

So this week is all about adjusting.  Reevaluating.  And making it work.  Because I will not be defeated by some orders and emails and customer issues.  

Funny thing is, less than a year ago I was on the verge of quitting my job and taking on Handmade Escapade full-time and I was worried that I wouldn’t be busy enough and our family would go hungry because we couldn’t afford to put food on our table.  Ha.  Not that we are rolling in dough, but we aren’t exactly sitting around waiting for things to happen.  Busy, busy bees!

Gotta run!  Time to kick this Monday’s ass!!

    Lady, you so totally rock. I love that you said, "This is what I'm doing and dangum, I'm going to do it like a boss." Kickin' ass and taking (rude customer) names and all.
