Yay! Friday! Yay, only 3 more Fridays left that will feel like true work Fridays!
It’s been a week. A whole lot of stress and angst over holiday plans. DLJ and I had it all the way we were happy with, given certain situations and financials, and then it all got put to hell with the best of intentions. I am going to the Bay Area for 36 hours, flying back on Christmas Day. It’s not the trip itself that is what got put to hell, but my decision making abilities about my own actions. It got chosen for me. And we are paying for part of it, meaning it will cost more than if DLJ just went alone. It just feels like no one asks me what I want, and it’s my time and my life that is being decided for me! None of it is intentional in terms of making us pay or anything…but I’m still just overly not pleased. Still, you make do with what you have, and press on, so I am sure it will be a fun trip. But things will be done differently in the future, I can tell you that.
More flying. *Sigh*
I have to fly again in January and maybe again in March. NO MORE after that for over a year. Seriously. I am over my limit and just want to curl up at home and go nowhere.
Flying events, even if they are fun ones, are things I think of as “events to get through.” I like trips and enjoy them, but I would be lying to say each one ends with a sigh of relief at being back home, until I start dreading the next one.
This weekend is busy, I have an intermediate level lampworking glass at Bullseye. Ah, brain expansion. It should be a fun two days.
DLJ is having the last round of his dental work done today, and then we can be done paying for all that. Until next year, of course. There is more work to be done.
I had my first auction of my beads and someone bought them with buy it now within three hours. Nice. Now I get to learn how to do the seller’s part of things, which is good. I am going to try to post one auction a week at least, while I ramp up on how it all works and while I am still working the webmonkey thing.
Not much else to report. I’m tired, mentally. But I will just have to make the best of things, and keep moving forward.
