Something is Happening!

The little egg is not as far along as the one in this picture but that is what it is starting to look like. It is so exciting! I just hope all goes o.k. for the little guy/gal. I am so surprised that it has made it this long with my shotty incubator thingy. I meant to buy a real incubator years ago just to have on hand I am kicking myself for not getting one sooner. Oh well, what I have set up seems to be working. Having a baby tortoise around would be awesome!

So as I dream about baby tortoises, I am cutting out a couple more wallets to sew up right quick for the show this weekend. I am only doing the extra sewing because I have really messed up my wrist and I can't get my ornaments done. I am super bummed about that but there is really nothing I can do until my wrist heals.

I started getting nervous about our upcoming show yesterday while I was out trying to find decor for our booth. My partner doesn't want to invest in any decor or lights until we see how the other booths are being set up which makes me really nervous. I don't like waiting until the last minute to get things done. I wish I could just go out and buy all the stuff we need today so we would be ready but I really don't have the money to get it all today. I think next year I will make sure to set enough cash aside so I can feel like I have prepared adequately for these shows. I really can't afford to do anything half-assed these days, especially when I am trying to build a business. I guess it all comes back to how much I hate relying on other people to do their part. I think that is why I prefer working alone. I know if I screw up it is all mine to take responsibility for, so out of fear of screwing up, not being prepare, etc. I get shit done! and well before on time. OOOH! I am getting antsy and angry just writing about it. I best get back to work and stop complaining. Here's to hoping for last minute miracles.
