Yesterday had it's ups and downs.
Let's start with the downs. My brother-in-law Steve is a truck driver. He was involved in a horrible accident while out driving. He is ok and so is his driving partner, sadly the person who decided to cross the center lane was not. One moment I feel sorry for her, and the next I'm angry for being so irresponsible and putting this burden on Steve for the rest of his life, even though it was exactly 0% his fault. The best I can do is say a prayer that she has peace.... and Steve too.
Not even remotely as bad, but I also had to take the car to the dealership for 2 recalls. Between here and there is not far, but EVERY road seemed to be a detour and tomtom wanted to do nothing but take me down gravel roads. I finally did and about put it in a ditch one road was so bad. It wouldn't have been good. After they worked on it, they told me that they just had to update the software on my car, and trim a piece off my fender liner.
My car needs a usb cord so I could do that from home.
Getting home was a lot less eventful.
The up, which wasn't even as close to as up as the down was "down", was that I sold my very first art print. It was of one of my lightning images. I had posted it on facebook and a guy I went to school with contacted me to buy a print. A big one!
Which only reinforced my feelings that I really want to sell some decorator prints. Getting from point A to point B is going to be about as confusing as my trip to the dealership. However, I'm willing to put in some time in research and development. I need to work on setting better goals and having better time management for myself to make some of my goals happen. I sometimes feel like my ideas far outweigh my ambition. If I could somehow muster the energy, I'd be a millionare.
Now, having said that, I have a wedding and 2 seniors to get out of the gate!
And they're off!
