Things these last few weeks have been hectic. I’ve been helping out at the flower shop a lot lately. I LOVE it. It’s challenging me in a bunch of different ways that I really enjoy…and will probably talk about later. It pushes me out of my comfort zone, and who is going to argue with making extra money that can go straight into savings? But I feel so very burnt out. Finding balance between blogging full time and then doing something extra on the side is more difficult than I imagined. I’m, of course, not fishing for sympathy, or casually tossing hints to Anji who reads my blog – just sharing a little about what’s going on around here behind the scenes. Plus I know that sometimes it’s helpful to just admit something is stressing you out and somehow after that things magically fall into place.
There are an infinite number of things to blog about, especially considering I have such a wide variety of interests, and right now I literally cannot think of a single thing I want to write about. People always complain bloggers only share the sunny side so consider this my contribution to the other side. I guess to be fair, it’s not even that this is something not “sunny”, it’s just a little extra sunny here? Like I need a bit of sunscreen or some time in the shade. Does that make sense? I know I’m totally going to read this later and be like “what the heck was I even trying to say?!” But if you knew how long it took me to even get this far into the post you’d understand. It took me so long before I thought of the perfect thing to share today – a new on the cutting room floor post! Lots of plants, and pets, the two things that help keep me grounded.
Here’s to hoping the holidays aren’t as crazy for you and that a day of over indulging myself on mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie at the end of the week is just what I need.
