Learning to roll with the punches and make a sucky day awesome

2 nights ago I thought to myself that by 11am Friday I’ll be at 9 to Thrive, handing out my perfectly designed flyers, making new friends, meeting my fellow LMBs, rocking my businesswoman vibe and basically having a blast while increasing awareness of my growing bookkeeping business. 11am Friday has come and gone, and instead of schmoozing with like-minded women, I binge watched Pokemon XY in my PJs, eating Krispy Kreme donuts that I probably shouldn’t and drinking organic tea (well, it…

The constant need for the Meatball to be entertained, fed and supervised makes me appreciate the reliability of our regular routine when school is on. I dread the Easter holidays even more than usual though.
