2016, what can I say…..
I guess there has been quite a time lapse between now and the last time I wrote anything. This is partly due to not having anything to say about January…like, nothing. Nothing notable happened that I can recall. I probably could have closed the store for three weeks and nobody would have been the wiser, except for maybe my plants. Although, I think my constant presence is doing my plants a disservice. I water them five times a day because they look like they’re dying, not realizing that I’m probably the one killing them. It’s like a plant Munchausen syndrome by proxy thing going on.
January though….just a lot of long, dark afternoons puttering around, trying to stave off blood clots. Everyone warned me that January would be a drag. Even people who had no business warning me of such things were showing their grave concern. I’ve kind of become accustomed to well-wishers grave concern for my future though, so I pay it no mind.
I haven’t set too many lofty 2016 goals yet, I’m not sure what is more effective, thinking big picture or setting smaller, more attainable goals. I prefer to take things day by day, so the small and attainable goals give me less of a headache. Goal #1 is to get online! Online is the present and future, and I am clearly living in the past. It doesn’t seem like that major of an undertaking, but I don’t really know where to even begin. Every day I sit down at the computer and think, today is the day! Not. The payment processing and shipping stuff is the confusing part for me. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a dizzy broad and many simple tasks confuse me. The simplest solution would be to get someone else to do it, but that would be too easy.
I’ll figure it out.
I feel like ‘I’ll figure it out’ and ‘I’ll get around to it’ are things I say way too often lately. Not to add to my pile of excuses, but I think the inertia of January made me lazy in a lot of ways. Mentally and definitely physically! Yikes. Mark my words, I’ll set that online store up, and I’ll be jogging on spot while doing so! When? I can’t comment on that, but I’ll get around to it.
