If It Ain’t One Thing….


Hey guys!

Let me just say I thought about blacking out today but based on recent events it would be just my luck that I couldn’t get my site back!!! But please read up on SOPA and PIPA.

Well the past week has been a doozy..Let me run it down for you

My husband broke his foot. He needs my help..lots of it.

The printer did not get the shirts back on time. I had to pull some strings to get the shoot rescheduled with this awesome photographer and I am totally stressed out about that. All of the pieces just came together in the last 12 hours.

My Dad had to go in the hospital. Although he is out now they don’t know what is wrong with him

I had a conference with my son’s teacher and she said that he is scoring 4X above the standard scores of the tests he has been given..He needs to be in private school. How will we make that happen…God knows…but I’m still stressing. He needs to be challenged.

My car needs to be cleaned out. I just don’t feel like touching it.

I’m in a headspin about all of the money that I’ve spent getting this business off the ground, and now I’m starting to doubt myself…cry me a river

The laundry.

Just a few things going on in my world. I will be on Twitter and Facebook sporadically. I’ll be back on the blog Monday with deets and hopefully a few sneak peek shots of the shoot!

Thanks guys for reading and understanding.

    Sounds like you are dealing with a lot right now! Getting a business up and running is not easy but it can be very rewarding. Stick with it and enjoy the ride!

    I thought about blacking out today but will likely post something about the blackout instead.

    Hope your week ends better!

    I was wondering what was going on with ya. I hope your hubs and father get’s better soon. Running a business is not for the weak I have had to do some re evaluating myself. Breathe and take things one day at a time. Everything will fall into place right on time.

    Hope both your father and hubby gets better soon. You have a lot on your plate right now.

    I know what you mean about blacking out your site. I was considering doing it, but I KNOW I won’t be able to get it back up. I can hear Mr.C now: “And you thought it was a good idea to black out your site…why again?”

    Try to take it easy.

    There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s really bright. As Dori would say “Just keep swimming!” It will all pay off in the end.

    I really hope that everything will start to get better for you and your family– just know that this is only temporary and they always say that when GOD has a plan for you– the devils stirs up trouble. So keep pushing forward and don’t let him win!

    Your plate is certainly full but you can handle it. You launch is coming along and the shoot will be fab. Praying for healing for your husband and answers for your dad. As for the littlest man in your life, I agree with Amber, he is a genius! 🙂

    Argh… Mimi, you are so right! If it ain’t one thing, it’s another thing. It always is. But know that this too shall pass. Girl, you have so much going on right now that it’s totally easy to feel stressed. Take it one step at a time and rock it… as you always do!

    I have had too many of those weeks lately, they are the pits.

    The Sopa thing went well though, thats a day in history that will be remembered for a long long time as a big win, I think that in 200 years time the day the internet went on strike will be part of history lessons!
