You would think after an entire weekend of being “Blog Free” I would be jumping to get back in front of my monitor. . . . This week my friends, that’s just NOT the case. While I’m typically not all about hating on our friend “Monday”. . . .I feel like this weekend was hardly a break from reality. #INeedADayOffFromMyDaysOff.
You see, I spent an insane amount of time working on a 30+ hour Etsy order this weekend, shipped an additional 4 orders and completed a last-minute print for my sister-in-law at 3am Saturday for a Shower she had Sunday. . . . and after what felt like 7 days of non-stop slave labor, I’m beginning to feel the pressures of a work/life balance crumble beneath me. My Etsy shop is basically just busy enough to take away 75% of my personal “Me” time yet not nearly busy enough to justify foregoing my actual career. So essentially I’m at a constant crossroads and I just want to take a nap. All. The. Time. You know the kind of naps I’m referring to. . . . the naps where you only take them because you have so much other stuff to be doing that the only logical solution is to just pass the hell out and do none of it. At all. Ever.
Naps. Naps. Naps.
Regardless, I still feel blessed on a daily basis for the business I receive and hope that one day I can take it up a notch! As for the rest of my Monday? Lets see, I just found a Victoria’s Secret coupon in my planner for Free: No Show Panties- Expires today. Guess we know what that means? Nothing like a little joy-ride to panty land to perk up your Monday evening! Although, to be honest, that “free” shit never comes in an XS and I typically can’t find an acceptable event to sport slouchy panties. . . so yeah, lame. #FML.
I also have to stop at Best Buy to return the RocketFish DSLR Wireless Remote that I treated myself to over the weekend. #Booo. Ok I lied, I swiped my husbands card but in my defense when hubby wants me to stop and pick
something a video game (why I even try to be vague with the word something is beyond me) from BestBuy for him he typically thanks me by telling me to “buy myself something”. While this is thoughtful, he doesn’t ACTUALLY wish such events to play out as anything I want from Best Buy is typically $1,200 and higher. #IDontThinkThatIsWhatHeHadInMind.
This particular weekend I actually took him up on the offer and purchased a mere $20 RocketFish remote for my Canon Rebel T3 camera. I’ve been reading up on the wireless remotes from other photography blogs in the past 6 months and had been meaning to pick one up, seemed like the perfect opportunity. Too bad this shit only works on the T3i and above. [I suck.] I was so excited to test it out when I got home too! Photography is quickly becoming my new-found obsession, amongst 2,324 other things, but with no such luck on install, I was quickly forced to pack my little treasure back up. #Depressed. #TheSearchContinues.
Oh. I also spent the better half of my morning downloading Free Fonts. . . had been creeping around for some new concepts for prints and just had to get the “latest and greatest”. This of course turns into a half-day long event in which I have somehow downloaded 250+ fronts and now have to install them one-by-one . . . Which then, in turn, leads to me blogging about downloading fonts because I was so caught up in Kg Tangled Up In You and Marketing Script that I forget to come up with something more interesting to share with the world. #WhatWasIThinking?? I will say, I don’t EVER get sick of Free Fonts though. . . I’ll be posting some of my favorites later this week!
Other than that it’s your typical Monday: Freezing cold (still), leaving your house in your slippers, running behind and the ever-repeating offense of forgetting to pull something out for dinner. #Woops.
How has your Monday been? Did anyone partake in anything fun and exciting this weekend? If so, please enlighten me as I have yet to find a life in recent months! ♥
