Seriously.

Owning my own business is fabulous and horrible. On the one hand, I am the master of my own destiny, on the other hand, some days I feel like a mad cow on Quaaludes.

No—really—you want an example? I woke up this morning and had this thought:

 

‘ok so the first thing I need to do is not check my email since that blog I read about being Zen said don’t  check email first thing so I think I’ll make my coffee and drink the ENTIRE CUP before I check email in fact –socks!–I’ll SIT ON THE PORCH so I’m not tempted but –mmmmm I love my new Bobby Brown mascara–oh also I need to unpack the photographs that arrived yesterday and ship them to Connecticut plus I need to look up that dog obsessed fashion blogger Brittanie mentioned –where are my socks?–oh wait no first thing I need to check how to make my face book page look more like my website with SPwebBooks –is it March already –seriously where are all my socks–yes it is I have taxes to dive into oh and clean out my closet –socks…socks…socks!––oho Lightroom  4!–and  Aishe of SFPuppy Prep and I were supposed to have lunch today –where the f–k are my f—ing socks—not sure if we said a time need to check email but not until after coffee –they don’t even need to match I just need any two f–ing socks–so I can be Zen and….’

I could go on, but you get the idea.

This was all in the space of oh, about 45 seconds, give or take a second.

Last but not least, I was so pleased with how I ended my last post that I’ve decided to close all my posts in the exact same way:

A Present
If today’s post made you laugh, or even smile just a wee bit, you are welcome to send me a present. Today, I would like to solve several quandaries with one tiny bit of brilliant software.  Thank you. You are too thoughtful!

    I so hear you here Ellen!  Running your own business you can go from hero to zero and back again in just a minute or two.  Exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time.  Wouldn’t have it any other way though… 🙂
