Yes, I’m still here. It’s been a heck of a week. Here’s a little synopsis of the week’s peaks and valleys. (Sorry, no photos this post. You’ll understand why in a minute)
Valley: Last weekend I had the stomach flu on my husband’s birthday. He ended up having his birthday dinner out alone with the kids while I remained horizontal on the couch at home.
Peak: The stomach flu puts a dent in one’s productivity level. Thankfully, a person suffering from the stomach flu is too sick to freak out about impending book deadlines. Must be a defense mechanism. Or something.
Peak: I’ve had emails and phone calls all week requesting wholesale orders of my work.
Valley: I found out from a friend that one of my wholesale accounts (now former) is knocking off my cupcake pincushions, selling them side by side to mine and charging less. Is there no decency?
Peak: I found out a friend is newly pregnant.
Valley: I had the realization that in the next eight and a half months her body will create an ENTIRE human being. I started this book thing (my “baby”) over three months ago and her baby will still get here before mine!
Peak: I got a sneak peek at the cover design of my book!
Valley: I’m not ready to show it to you yet.
Peak: Today is the last day to finish up my projects for my gianormous deadline tomorrow!
Valley: My son is home sick on the couch with the stomach flu. Neither of us slept last night.
Peak: I got a phone call today from a TV producer interested in my work!
Valley: Are you kidding? I’m all giddy…(which is enhanced by the lack of sleep)
Valley: My kitchen floor crunches when I walk on it and my kids get dressed in the laundry room every morning.
Peak: I’m not keeping up with the house work. (is that a peak or a valley?)
Peak: I have a ton of ideas I can’t wait to share with you. I have a goal of one project to share every week.
Valley: I have a tendency to want to do it all and say yes to everything. I will do my best!
