Listening NOT to the Mustn'ts

It's a rainy morning and I wait for the Sprout to finish her breakfast so I can take her to school. I also wait for the kiln to cool so I can grind the lattice I need to take to Elaine this morning so Black Cat can assemble and ship it. When I get back from that meeting I have just enough time to photograph the new business card holder design I slumped yesterday and get it off for review for the corporate gift project. Then I meet with my accountant Helen so she can help me fill out the ARC loan docs. I tried doing it on my own last week, but I am incapable of coming up with a two-year income projection without just pulling the numbers out of my... ear. After Helen and I are finished Becky arrives and it's time to ship two orders.

Oh yeah, and I need to order the rest of the hotshop tools, review my current Bullseye order for my KGRC opening and get it back in, review my agreement docs with Lori... time to stop. I'm making myself tired.

It's just over a month till we have our 'grand opening' and I begin to realize how much there is still left to do... STOP! No more talk of lists and to do's. Got to get on with the day. Need to close with a little Shel Silverstein today.

"Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child
Listen to the DON'TS
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me -
Anything can happen, child
ANYTHING can be."

Or the opening to Stingray:

"Anything can happen in the next half hour!"

Love the quote, I'm printing it out to hang next to my workbench for inspiration! And isn't it fun being crazy busy??? Good luck with the new Bullseye setup! Makes me want to do Atlanta just so I can visit....
