I'm going to contact my sewing contractor (in San Rafael) today to set up a date to meet and, hopefully, start production. This is so surreal to me, but oh so exciting. I'm also having a conference call with Michelle Staley, a mommy of a preemie, who created the Busy Breather's Oxygen backpack... seriously, check her out!! She saw a void in the preemie market and filled it with this amazing product. Sound familiar? Well, I'm having a quick 20 min consultation with her to get as much info as I can (I'm writing down questions in between these blogging thoughts). If I can be half as successful as she is I will count my myself extremely lucky.
My diet is changing, which means more time grocery shopping, and definitely more time cooking. Frequent trips to the farmer's market, coupon clipping (after watching the first episode of Extreme Couponing... ummm, hello?), and cooking lessons have become great bonding times between my husband and me. Loving that.
My garden is flourishing, we're planting 16 more plants today, and a tree. Guys, I was not built for manual labor, but I have a wonderful husband that doesn't mind doing the digging. Gotta love that man. I have to admit, the tan on my shoulders after a few hours of swingin' a shovel is a big bonus. I did buy this little fashion statement a couple weeks ago (taken with my camera phone).
Everything comes with a price, and mine is less time to write. I know I'm not the only one that has trouble balancing, but I feel guilty... so guilty. Something has to give... and unfortunately, it has to be the blog for now. There are so many aspects of the business that need to be figured out, and I just don't have time for everything. Is anyone else feeling guilty about putting something on the back burner? Please tell me I'm not the only one.
