The Gosh Honest Truth

{via Doug Switalski}
It's late. I'm tired, but the kind of tired where you can't even function and certainly are no good use to anyone or anything. My eyes are dark, my feet keep falling asleep, I started drinking coca-cola again, which is terrible. But I feel as though we are making a huge dent in orders, so it is all worth it in the end. I know it is. I'm self editing, on auto pilot, not saying entirely what I mean. I've turned into a terrible email responded, an invisible blogger (at least I still micro-blog on twitter and instagram, but it's not the same) I have dropped the ball, and it's incredible stressful. 

I say that I wish I had a helper to remind me of all the business-y things that I HAVE to do, but instead, I just wish that I didn't have to sleep to stay alive. Ah, the things we do. I'm working on it. All of it. But for right now, I just need to close my eyes and plan on an early morning.

  2. Sweety, I can sense this is all of your posts: you are, without a doubt, dedicated to your work. You achieve so much more than you even should. You are absolutely amazing, and a hard worker and an overachiever. But it's no good if you aren't enjoying life - please take time to breath, smile and relax. Take time to take joy in life, to meditate or shop or sit in bed and read - whatever relaxes you. If you need a helper, try and get one!

    If I lived near you, I'd apply in a second.

    Good luck, lovely lady, I hope your stress melts away. ♥

  3. You two work so hard on the wonderful business you've grown (1100 Etsy sales + wholesale!!) and it's been so great to watch it grow even more this past year. I can't imagine the number of hours you work over a day or week.

    Be kind to yourself, squish the dogs, hug your man and just keep plugging away.

    PS. If you ever need a personal assistant....;)
