T minus 7 days
Terrifying! Just 7 days until the site launches, and here I am in the wee hours of the morning clunking away at the keyboard with a million* things on my to-do list.
I was feeling ALL the emotions this morning. Elation at the new cards that had been delivered, slightly sickened that I've spent all our savings on buying stock in the hope the business will succeed, optimism that I'm on to a good idea, fear that the whole thing is a bad idea, guilt that I've been very pre-occupied with setting up the business rather than with the kiddos, sweaty-palmed because of the one supplier that STILL hadn't replied to my email about getting stock on time.... and it goes on. Chuck illness into the mix and you can see why I'm one thumb-suck away from rocking back and forth in the cupboard under the stairs.
ANYWAYS ITS ALL FUN AND GAMES REALLY!!
That's what I keep saying to myself. Yes it's a bit stressful right now, but I wanted this - and just when it gets a bit much, the optimism and bloody-mindedness kicks back in again.
Right - off to make my 100th cuppa of the day** Because tea solves everything. Fact.
