How could it POSSIBLY be May again? I'm yawning just thinking about it. I'll be honest here, I feel like I've been hit by a truck....a truck that is ironically being driven by hot pink Peeps and Cadbury Eggs. I know I talk a lot about my ardent love for sugar here, and I'm sorry if you guys are sick of it, or if you think I'm an unstable emotional eater. I totally am.
So, back to the month of May. I'm going to ask a HUGE favor of everyone....and I hate asking for help, because I'm so proud. Here's the deal. I just need you to be nice and patient with me. I work every single weekend in May, and in the weeks between, I hurl myself back into the van, drive the 3 hours BACK to my home base, and spend all of the weekdays restocking for the show. I turn into an overworked, undersexed, overwhelmed, very hollow shadow of myself. It's extraordinarily kind and sweet of you ladies to encourage me to take time out for myself and to de-stress, but the ones saying that are never the ones that have orders on the line. Once again, I know what I signed myself up for, now that I've done this business for over 6 years professionally. I DO love what I do, but the month of May is NEARLY as hard as October for me. As you can imagine, October is a whirlwind of hellish deadlines, impatient customers, impossible requests, and...well....crazy people. May is more like the evil stepsister of October. She kicks me in the head and screams at me, demanding I shovel more coal on her inferno.
So...yup, that's all I'm asking. Just be nice and patient. I'm planning on trying a FEW de-stressing type things....hoping to pick up my guitar and relearn how to play. I'm debating on whether or not I want to haul it to the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival and rock out if there is ever dead time in the booth (which there WON'T be!) I also thought it would be cool to see if I could hula-hoop in a corset.
Oh, one last note! I worked 17 hours today, waking up a 4, skipping breakfast, and powering through until the evening, but I GOT TONS of your custom orders done! yay!!!
