Being your own boss

I always read such interesting and smart things about people running their own businesses, and countless times through out the day I think of interesting and smart things for an imaginary blog post. So I'm going to just start peppering them in here. Maybe. This might be the only time. As I type this I have absolutely nothing to write, so I'm hoping that by the end of this sentence I will remember what I wanted to write.


Here it is.

Sometimes when you work by yourself all day, you start talking out loud, just to make sounds.

Sometimes when you eat lunch by yourself in the window at the Cava Meze by Target, at first you feel silly and get scared you are going to spill tzatziki on the sleeve of your leather jacket, then you feel empowered, like, "look at me. I'm so busy running around town, buying padded envelopes and dropping things off at UPS. I'm just grabbing a few minutes of...more quiet...by myself with my chicken pita and free lemon water."

On the same topic of food, when you are left alone (i.e husband leaves for business for 2 two days), all you eat over the course of 24 hours is ben and jerry's frozen yogurt and popcorn. then you will get a tummy ache. Then you think how you run your own business, you can handle a tummy ache.

You also watch lots of random daytime t.v in the background while soldering and packing things. Lots.

You day dream about owning a Vespa, and then scare yourself out of it.

All you want are sweaters with sequined elbow pads.

Sometimes when you are thirsty and there isn't any juice or iced tea (blech, water), you might open up a beer and nurse it over the course of 5 hours, until there's only a little warm bit left in the bottle, which you try to finish while watching nighttime t.v with the hubs and realize it's old and gross.

In conclusion, this is the best nail polish.
