Yesterday was a bit stressful, and found myself drinking a rum and coke around 3:00pm. (But at least it had a sweet ass skull straw so it was basically like I was getting festive for the upcoming holiday. Totally ok right?)
I had a few fires to put out. It’s all taken care of now but a part of me wanted to cry yesterday. It’s weighing more and more on me lately, just how much running a business entails. It’s so much more than getting that product sold and out the door. The e-mails, the inquiries, the issues, the decisions. Every single aspect is something I have to handle, and it’s starting to weigh on me. I blame this mostly on my indecisiveness. I can’t make a damn decision to save my life. Working on it.
This week I also had a scare with Penny. She was really sick on Monday and it definitely distracted me from getting anything done. Thankfully she is back to her normal self, though I’m not sure what caused the problems. I suspect it may have something to do with her blanket eating tendencies.
I’ve been getting the house decorated for Halloween. I don’t know why, but for some reason I get more and more into decorating this time of year. I don’t remember being like this in Michigan and I’m wondering if it, in a way, is me over-compensating for the lack of seasons in California. Like I’m yearning for that feeling and maybe making my house festive will help. We are having our pumpkin carving party next weekend so I’m getting excited for that as well!
(Could NOT pass these beauties up at the store last weekend. Have you ever seen a sunflower so wild?)
What about you? Do you decorate for Halloween? What about costumes? You know ours are in the works of course! I am also on the hunt for some new “fall-ish” recipe ideas as well, if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them! xo JA
