Did anyone notice I skipped out on posting yesterday?
I was rolling out a huge, wordy one. But when I clicked publish, I lost half of it. A corrupt cut and paste. Not good.
And at 1:30 AM, I wasn’t about to pound keys for another hour to fill it back up.
Limitation #1 – no more all nighters!
Because that’s just dumb. I struggle in the AM getting my boy off to school, then I go back and nap and sleep too long.
So while it was too late already, I made the right call.
So I’m changing my theme for today. But with a double message because I missed a day. That’s fair right, Nester?! (the founder of 31 Days)
Limitation #2: I am not a shipper.
I have no idea when I even offered this gift to reader Jessica. She won it in a draw. I broke it while packing it up way back and meant to fix it, but it never happened.
Shipping is not a difficult thing! The post office is just down the road, minutes away. But for some reason, I’m allergic to boxing something up, collecting the address, taping it shut, and making the trek down the road. Shipping is just not my thing, period.
For this reason, I will likely never have an Etsy store or store I run myself. Now a store run by another? Sure! More on that soon in fact… did you see a glimmer of a hint there maybe?
But as it stands, I don’t ship. But I will this round. For Jessica. This time. 🙂
And because Jessica didn’t get her toolbox kit on time, I’m going to send her a couple other things I made. Because she doesn’t hate me for my lack of sending ability or forgetfulness due to… age?
She showed me a huge amount of grace, and I appreciated that.
Of course I have many other limitations too that I won’t bore you with. But the point is, I realize in some areas, I just fall flat. And it’s all good. I excel in other areas so I’m better to serve my time there.
Like taking pictures of boxed up overdue gifts. And cats. 🙂
For my son’s first birthday, I had this MASSIVE party for him on my then farm. Hay ride, horse rides, fire pit, craft tables, you name it, we did it.
And then there was the cake. I made a 3D barn, but… it resembled the leaning tower of Pizza. It was pretty crappy to be very honest.
I was stressing so bad over its non perfection stance along with this perfect party, that my mom suggested I take an aspirin! LOL
After that year, I never made a birthday cake again. I bought them. But I gave more in other areas that well made up for it, like decorating. Ohhh, the decorating! The room transformed into a magical Disneyland that grew everyones eyes wide open!
The kitchen just wasn’t / isn’t my thing.
You are who you are. So why fight it and try and be who you aren’t?
Kind of a stressful topic, but it’s my bet you felt… a peace.
A peace knowing it’s ok to not do it all perhaps?
But know what really helps me chill out and be ok with all my imperfections?
These guys. With no aspirin nor limitations in sight.
Except for my current sending capabilities…
Excuse me kitties, but I promise I’ll make you more stuff I don’t need to ship. 🙂
