i got so much done today.
makes me really appreciate having had this free day at the end of the month, or as kal says, a bonus day.

maybe i only got like, a quarter of my to-do list done, but i still feel really good about everything i did. i added some new stuff to my etsy shop and even experimented with a new craft by making a sweet cuff.

i made a new friend and found out she lives RIGHT by me!

i worked in my studio for six [straight] hours and feel like i don't need to sleep tonight i'm so pumped.

my only hope is that tomorrow when i wake up i have the same momentum to help me shred through the rest of my to-do's!

i woke up this morning and couldn't quite remember what day it was. is it sunday? it might be sunday, and i might get to sleep in, which would be awesome because i am exhausted.

then i proceeded to lay in bed and realize, no, it's monday. and i have to get up now and start the work week.

it was then that i wanted to cry.
that's no way to start a monday.

i made this for john, not for vd, just because i thought it would be fun to make.

and it totally was. it took a few more hours than i expected, but that always happens to me.

my boss just told me that sometimes she says things like they are and that she needs to be more careful before she just says these things.  then she said, really, she did, that i am a good influence on her because i am always so thoughtful about how i say things, that i am very tactful.  that was right before i laughed out loud and said, i wish i could have recorded you saying that so i could play it for my husband and my family. 
i am incredibly tactful and thoughtful about the things that come out of my mouth while i am at work.  you almost wouldn't believe that it was me.  evidently, based on my gut reaction to chuckle at her comment, it is apparent that i need to work on it in the rest of my life.  makes me realize that in general, in my life, i have gotten better at it than when i was 16, but i still probably have a ways to go on that. 
but it was such a nice thing to know that she feels like as her employee that i. have. tact.

i wish i were a better photographer. even more, i wish i had the patience to sit and read the manual that john got me for christmas so that i could learn how to take better photos. but as long as there are other people who are really good at taking pictures for me to look at, i am content to just look at them and appreciate their skill from a distance.
