After the last release, I started to struggle to stay afloat. There were four oversells which means I owe dolls to a few lovely people, that were alright with waiting. I am making ten dolls for a collaboration with a dear friend. I am in debt 5 portraits, one which never arrived to the mama it was sent to (the USPS isn’t much help). I owe many people things and am trying desperately to get through them this week. After this week, I really hope I can begin to gain momentum again. Zak’s birthday is this weekend and I won’t be able to make him what I originally intended to, but I did buy him a little something useful. Staying home with Odin and still having the energy to create at the end of the day is exhausting. I’m pretty sure my body is beginning to work itself into a rhythm that can maintain both, but I’m not quite there yet. I just arrived back from a visit with my family, which was lovely (I miss all those people so much while away) but did not help with my catching up.
But hey, I’m working on it. I am happy that I take the time in the morning to go for a walk with little O. I’m happy I spend Sunday with Zak, since it is his day off. I’m happy I have lovely friends who come to craft with me after dark to keep me sane and motivated. I wouldn’t trade it for the world (although, a secretary would be really nice… haha!).
