Coffee in the New Orleans skyline mug, "Feeling Gravity's Pull" by R.E.M on iTunes--not a random selection. Yesterday I spent the day fighting the cold (weather), maybe fighting a cold, and questioning all my expansionist plans. I was Doubting Brenda.
I had more than half convinced myself not to do the Atlanta's Mart show but Grace (the Mart rep) called, soothed my fears, and held my hand through the paperwork and booth options. I am in and will commit formally by getting my paperwork in today. I did get my paperwork off to Steve in Dallas for the FINDS show there, committed again. The little voice in the back of my head that wanted to stay under the covers yesterday is snidely muttering that I *should* be committed and that I am going to fall on my behind and accrue HUGE debt for these shows. Voice, I ignore you.
I also fretted about my collaboration ideas for work with Todd as I puttered around the FREEZING studio, and I managed not to get any ornaments done for him to wrap today. But I'll take a couple of large pieces down for our meeting this morning to see what he comes up with on them. I say "down" as his studio is south of mine down past the airport. The same airport I am taking my mother to at 9:00 so she can fly home to Montana. *sigh* I prepare to be blue. I wish we didn't live so far away from each other. A month or two a year just isn't enough time together.
I hold tight to the plan for a Kavarna Day tomorrow. Something to look forward to and a positive step to getting the website and ERP system completed this year.
