I love Avenue Q. When I saw it in New York in February, it totally spoke to me. Everybody IS a little bit racist. And sometimes, no matter what it may seem like on the outside, it does suck to be me. Today is one of those days.
Don't get me wrong, I have a *charmed* life. We own a beautiful house, we are the parents of a fabulous Dumpling, and not having regular jobs is GREAT! But there are some days when being your own boss just SUCKS, and today is one of those days....
Balancing full time motherhood with part time work is very hard. I end up procrastinating with things I don't like to do, which makes my list of things to do grown longer and longer everyday. Some days, I just end up doing nothing because I just don't know where to start, so it becomes easier not to start at all.
A few months back, we decided to launch the on-line side of the store. The idea was to increase sales and revenue with minimal effort. Except of course for the minimal effort part. I did have the site done by someone else, but listing all the products, translating all the listings to French, taking pics, nobody else can do that for me. And it sucks. I need to get my butt in gear and do it, but I just get so overwhelmed by the size of the task, I end up doing very little.
But if I want this to succeed, I need to act. So last night, after a big heart-to-heart with my husband/business partner, I light a fire under my own ass. This morning I gathered all our personal tax documents, I prepared our adoption file to be deposited at the social services office and I did some Internet research on something we had discussed. And just now, after a short Internet surfing break, I just downloaded 58 product pictures, which I now need to transform into the right size an format, write a product description for, translate into French and upload to our site..... Well, at least the pics are in my computer now.... let's see how much I do manage to get done.
But today, it sucks to be me.
