not wanting to sound too dramatic, but this adjusting phase is hard. tears yesterday. more today. the less busy we are, the worse it is. reality is setting in. we had a good, hard, long talk this morning and came up with a fool proof plan to get ourselves though this muck asap. then we went into the city (just 2 bart stops from our apt), walked what felt like a thousand miles up and down hills (our booties will hopefully get all plump in no time), people watched, enjoyed the hustle and bustle of san francisco. we ate lunch at a quaint italian joint and made a long list of things we’d like to do and see these next few weeks. camping trips, day trips, museum trips, art festivals, and more. the goal is not to keep us distracted, well maybe just a little, but really to submerge ourselves in life around here. and to start good habits straight away. john played his first soccer game with the oakland boyz in the park across the street. they play every evening. while he’s playing soccer, i’ll be running around the lake. that’s the plan people. i must stick to it!
oh, i’ve been working very hard on my art business. soon, and i mean soon, there will be prints and originals for sale (finally) on etsy. i’m nervous, but taking the plunge and am hopeful i will sell something. also, i’ve been doing a ton of website research and have made several inquiries. if you are a website designer, or know someone, please speak up. i need a fun & functional website.
