enough time

Mad running craziness

I love my job. *hearts* I really do. But yaknow, every so often I wonder if I'm just a leetle nuts.

I am so enormous, crazily busy! The EMG-Zine anthology eats several hours a day and isn't moving nearly as fast as I'd like (but wow, it's going to be a heck of a book), I'm getting as many emails a day (real ones, not spam) as I'm able to answer, so I'm not getting through my backlog like I need to be, I'm filling orders as fast as I can and sending out buckets of packages, I'm barely able to keep up with the forums, and the muse is seriously bending my ear. (Writing muse, but over nothing useful, just self-indulgent fanfiction stuff... darn it anyway.)

It's made me sort of step back and ask - where am I going this year? I made a goals list, but, truth of the matter is, this monster project I've started is going to need more than me pretty soon. Do I want... *shudders* employees?? The answer to that is definitely NO.

I'm also looking at incorporating again, for a few reasons. (The most recent being a contest that I could seriously STOMP [imho], but which requires my business to be anything but sole prop.) Don't need the loans I thought I'd need last year - I've got everything just about perfectly balanced to continue sustainable growth without any additional input.

Where I want to go - I can't quite go yet. See...

Oh, and we just booked our airline miles to go to Mexico at the end of March! Horrah for airline miles (this is what building a house using an airline miles credit card will do!), and sharing lodging with Jake's sister, and Jake's job, which gives him plenty of paid vacation as well as more airline miles! It will be pretty darned cheap (which is good, 'cause travel budget comes out of my earnings), and oh man, am I looking forward to it! Sleepy little town, no touristy beaches, and we'll be getting a quiet place with no cable or Internet, all of which suits me just fine.

Life is good. Sun is coming back. T-shirts aren't pressing themselves...
