Same as yesterday plus headache. St00pid weather shifts.
The "feeling rushed" - essentially, I have no way to display my stuff, no business cards, no pricing model, and the stuff I'm doing right now is the experimental, self-teaching-type stuff, not the stuff that's going to be my actual focus. I think it's the display and cards stuff that's getting to me. Because not only would I have to do a lot more pendants and earrings, I'd have to figure all that out. On top of everything else I'm trying to get done this week.
So I think pacing myself would be smarter. I'm glad the idea of the craft show kicked me into making-stuff gear again. But I don't know that I can get all of that *plus* the jewelry done by Friday night and still have the jewelry be as good as I want it to be. Sense-making?
*sigh* I need a wife.
I *am* going to continue making stuff so I can do the craft fair if I feel I'm ready. But I'm not going to drive myself crazy.
They Might Be Giants - they might not be age-appropriate
Next week's TMBG concert has been declared 18+. Which sucks, because we were going to go as a family. So now we're trying to decide whether to
a) return all three tickets and get our money back
b) return just hers and see if we can get a babysitter
c) sell hers to a friend and see if we can get a babysitter
d) sell all three to friends.
I'm ticked off about this, really. It was declared 18+ after tickets had been sold. And their last few albums have been kiddie albums. I have no idea why this isn't an all-ages show. I've never heard a TMBG song I wouldn't let Elayna listen to.

Pumpkin III: Pumpkin with white chocolate, caramel, pomegranate, and cream.
In bottle: Pumpkin with caramel drizzled on top!
On me: Oh, and there's the pomegranate! Mmm. Tart, sweet dessert.
Pumpkin IV: Pumpkin with cactus blossom, sage, and sweetgrass.
In bottle: Sage and sweetgrass. Ooooh. Desert dusk.
On me: Juicy pumpkin/cactus with a spike of sage.
* Got to run to the Ben Franklin for Sculpey and solder/flux/etc.
* Elayna has homework to do, but when she's done with that, we're going to do science or crafty stuff together, her choice.
* Alternate office decrufting with Making Stuff. Packing outgoing packages counts as decrufting, as it means that things are leaving my damn office.
* Diesel tonight!
