i’m journaling out loud for 2 reasons:1. to let you see how easy it is to begin a journaling practice and 2. to challenge you & me to commit to something and stick with { i have issues y’all😜 }

daily snippet

Spent two 5-hr sessions Sunday uploading and editing over 200 photos. Fingers are sore,  eyes are crossed { haha } and my back is long past holding me up straight. In between these self-imposed get-ready-for-launch sessions i got to play hookie with J and L and J at Collage { yum that store is! }, hung out with D and Cman at the dragon boat races then had a bit of a spy on navy ships that are in town for Fleet week & Portland Rose Festival, no tour of ships tho. Gots no time for alla that. Walked so much my feet hurt like crazy later on but had such a good day, don't think i'd trade it. 

Back to it for that 2nd session and taking more pics { saw ones I missed while editing }. In bed afterwards can feel my whole body is plain ole tired and weary. But, truth be told, I'd have it no other way. Right now I'm working for myself and there's something big inside of me that feels so good knowing that my own efforts are changing my world. Can't be better than this, right her, right now.

Cool thing is hubby is uber aware I'm on a crunch for time so he's been making sure I eat and bringing me dinner wherever I'm working ....can't wait to move into new studio space—getting keys to new apt this week. Fricking heck yes, I am totally stoked! If ma darn feet weren't hurting so much I'd be jumping for joy....right, girl get real.....who are you trin to kid!  Anyway, peace out. 

NOTE:  names i use in daily snippet will be 1st letters only.  altho this is my journal, it is a public one so i am choosing not to use any full names.

toodles,
