O.K. so here is the thing, I'm feeling just a wee bit topsy turvy, a wee bit, these days. Not quite done with one, yet onto the next as well. So many burdens are being lifted, so many questions answered, and so many good feelings about our decision. All the nasty bits about selling our business seemed to have subsided and we seem to be moving to a favorable outcome for all involved. In fact, I am currently feeling rather proud that something we started fifteen years ago as 23 year old kids is now on the eve (figuratively) of my 29th birthday (yes, I know the math seems a little funky, but you're just going to have to trust me it's 29 that's my story and I'm sticking to it) is going to be paying us for the next 10 years. Not bad, not bad at all. However, at the same time more questions and situations without answers currently are raising their heads. I have suddenly gone from being a stay at home mom (most of what I needed to do for our other business could be done from home, except for the occasional meeting or business trip) to going to an office every day. On the one hand it is fulfilling and exciting. I am a part of building something that I believe is going to be very successful. On the other hand, it is almost summer which means the kids will be home all day, so now what? I don't want to miss the whole summer with them and I don't want them to miss their summer spending too much time at the office with me. I know we will find the answers as we move through the process one day at a time, but the ins and outs tend to take up most of my thoughts, therefore I am hopelessly lost for post ideas. Sure, I can come up with fabulous ideas at 1am, 2am, or 3am when I am not sleeping, but in the harsh light of day my fabulous idea turns out to be a bunch of bollocks. (I just finished reading a novel set in Dublin and England and I fear I may have, for the moment, adopted a bit of a Madonnaesque British accent.) Posts should be on more of a regular schedule when I am feeling a little less dolally. Thanks for your patience.
In short I would sum up my state of mind at the moment as Ahhhhhhhhhyahooooooowhoaaaaaayehawwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeekwhoohooosnifflesnifflelaughoutloud.
I have faith that you now see the aptness of the title of this post.
