Not having work on Monday is supposed to be a good thing, but it just made Tuesday worse. Not only was it Monday at work, it was Monday at home. And after three days of no crazy pills (because they were not packed for the weekend trip…), that is not a good thing.
But the weekend was fun – camping with my folks and having no chores to do but sit around and drink beer, do word puzzles, and just BE.
I think what made Tuesday overwhelming was my decision to start a small business. I have the first of my inventory on its way as I write this. I’m hopeful and excited, but also nervous and overwhelmed by all the little stuff I have to do in order to get started. First task: to set up my computer - reformat the hard drive, invest in better software (business expense) and internet connectivity (business expense) to help manage everything. Now, considering I am really my own boss at this, I can’t technically get dooced, but I’m not going to tempt fate any further since I do have people helping me out and a company supplying inventory (both of which can cut me out like a bad skin tag if they feel like it). That’s the thing with contractual agreements – both parties have an “out” clause for “no fault at all reasons.” Suffice it to say, I’m excited about the opportunity to make a little extra money and to have something I can call my own ambition.
