I'm a huge fan of Janet Hill. What would it take to get an original? The instant she posts one on Etsy it's GONE! That is the true meaning of selling a painting before it's dry. These days, I love her bouquets the most. I think for a while she was painting one a day. A. Day!
I was thinking how even with good things in my life, I don't adapt as readily as I should. I'm not that quick on my feet.
My 12 year old is turning 13. I was happy with the old number. Today in school they made the kids watch the infamous 'birth video'. They showed everything, mom. Everything!
Egad! Did I want my kid to see what I would not want to see myself? They gave me no time to decide.
Meanwhile my 19 year old notified me today that next year he is living off campus, that 'they' found an apartment and that it will be two boys and two girls living together. Double egad! I'm thinking what is so wrong about being on campus, in a dorm? what's so wrong with him remaining a little boy eternally?
I need to adjust... the problem is I need time to adjust to things. But life seems to demand that we adjust right. this. minute.
Sales of Hidden in Paris have doubled this month! What is this? I can't get over it but neither do I want to get cozy with it. I was comfortable with the slowly-but-surely growing sales. What if things went back to the old, previously perfectly good numbers. Would I be disappointed? How would I cope with that disappointment?
Here again, I suck at adjusting.
When things go too fast I get tension in my neck, headaches. My thoughts go into whirling spins. My speeches speeds up, I become impulsive, moody. I overeat. I have meltdowns.
I'm sensing all of the above coming my way.
