Ever feel overwhelmed, too much on your plate, all the balls are in the air and all you want to do is sleep? Yeah, me too.
I threw a party and people showed up…. that is an introverts nightmare… It was great, I met a lot of very nice people and got a lot of names, emails, suggestions and requests. The open house did everything it was meant to do. By all accounts is was a total success. However, now there is a pile of papers, on my desk a list of to-dos as long as my arm and all I want to do is sleep.
What do I do? Well I did sleep a lot, then had insomnia for 3 days because I over worried about sleeping to much and not getting to things which not surprisingly, made me struggle with brain power to do the things. 11 days have passed and I am starting to see the end of that pile and list. Truth is, I needed some of that time to figure out how to do the things, that I had not only committed too, but also what you’al had suggested to me. I realized an entire revamp of my website was needed to handle things. Even though I was smart enough to set up a separate email for the FlexSpace (and yes, now I have realized that FlexSpace needs to be one word) however did not realize the mechanics I am now having to learn to use the email at it’s fullest, not to mention the website.
Add on to all the stuff for my personal business, Bassoon Camp is now is full preparations mode and there is a lot to be done for that group. The puppy is really in need of hands on training and my oven after years of struggling finally bit the dust and I had to kick it to the curb. Then the computer and credit card acceptance had to be updated too…uuuugggghhhh
Stressors are a normal part of life, and they do seem to add up really fast. There are so many hats we must wear to just make it through a week. Vit. D, C, and some walking has done wonders, I even got to a yoga class this morning. We all go through these cycles and now I am about to tackle the final papers… then get on to the job of doing my taxes.
The website is now totally revamped. Take a look and send me any comments, or spelling errors, it is always helpful to have other eyes. I am on to all the contact lists and will have them to teachers shortly. I hope all of you will be able to take advantage on one or more of the classes coming up. We also had an overwhelming response to the Death Cafe we are running this weekend so I am confident there will be more of them on the calendar soon. If there is anything you are interested in teaching just let me know and we can talk about the ways to do it and help our community.
Thanks to all of you for your patents. And for those who wanted a newsletter… yeah, I just don’t see that happening. I think that this blog will have to nourish that need of yours, and you can even RSS if you need it coming to your inbox 🙂 or see it pop on your Facebook feed.
So that is all for now – look for class announcements soon.
