I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but whatever... I decided to take some time to take care of some personal matters that have been bothering me. I don't mean "issues" or anything like that. I mean getting my house in order (again, in the literal as opposed to figurative sense).

Here's what I mean - I ran this business out of my house for 4 years, right up until we moved into our awesome new shop last November. Now the whole entire time since the move I've had this huge mental adjustment of (re)learning how to actually live and work in two different places. For the first few months, I basically lived in the shop. I'd be here for like 12 to 14 hours a day and just go home to sleep. Now most, but not all, of those hours were actually spent working, but there was definitely an overlap of business and (ahem) personal activities going on at the shop. So it was like I just moved my entire lifestyle from one place to another. Hmm...

Meanwhile, my house still looked like someone had just moved out, even several months later. Over the past few years it had acquired a definite music store vibe. So when I finally moved all those music store elements into an actual shop, my house ended up looking kind of barren, even desolate... definitely not very home-like. So yeah, it's taken me this long to realize I have the opportunity to make my house into a home; reclaim actual living space that had previously been overrun with gear and inventory. So that's what I've been trying to do... well, for the last week or so, anyway. Oh, and I force myself NOT to come into the shop on Sundays. It's weird, I'm still not used to it. Trying to learn balance... that's all for now.
