Boy, being hacked is no fun. It took me several evenings of hard work to get everything back up and reload all my photos – what a pain. I think it’s mostly done now, and I’m glad to have it behind me.
The truth, too, is that it was just one more thing in a whole long list of things I’ve been dealing with, and honestly, I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few weeks wishing I could just check out for a while. There’s something very obviously out of balance in my life and that’s turning up in every area – my house is a wreck, I have no time in the studio, the projects I’m working on for church are all getting done at the last possible minute, and things at work are starting to stack up on my desk like planes in a holding pattern over O’Hare. All of that starts to create its own pressure, and I find myself falling into bed at the end of the day exhausted, while my mind scrambles desperately to sort it all out – so instead of getting the rest I so badly need, I lie in bed and look up at the ceiling and listen to the sound of the gears grinding in my head and wonder what the heck I’m doing.
I’ve made a few sales in my Etsy shop, which is encouraging, but I’m also assuming it’s primarily because Christmas is around the corner. And I’ve started really researching what I need to do to get this thing launched effectively, and that feels overwhelming – where is the time going to come from?
So… it took me a while to get the site back up, and it’ll take some focus and energy to squeeze time for it into my schedule over the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience!
