How have you been? I've spent the last week working hard and being
humbled. Getting to see what I need to work on. Now it gets lighter
everyday - metaphorically too, I hope. Let's all be the best possible
versions of ourselves, shall we?
Around here, I'm transforming these rolls into many many Earnest Totes and packing them up to ship to Japan. Big plans are in the works - new color, new bag. Waiting to hear about spring and summer shows. New jobs. New logins and passwords. Forms. Anticipation. There is a time of general uncertainty and awkwardness (and slight terror) looming over my house - and I'm not sure I can bring myself to embrace it. I could sit next to it, maybe.
Around here, things are looking pretty spectacular. For real. Had you
encountered me last Friday, you would have heard a rage-fueled rant
about picking up after yourself. I apologize for the rage, but you
should still pick up after yourself.
I have finally trained my children to sleep in on the weekends, which?
Means that they will reliably stay quiet until about 6:30AM. Because the
weekend is awesome and they don't want to miss any of it. Now the dog
wakes us at five, every morning. Because daytime is awesome and she
doesn't want to miss any of it.
Small, mighty things are blooming everywhere.
In what may have been a questionable parenting move, we did some mildly
adventurous movie-going. Nobody else brought their children to see The
Terminator at the Paramount.
