I was all kinds of excited this week because I knew that as of Friday morning, I’d have two new items in my Etsy shop, plus a blog with pretty progress pics. As it turns out, however, it wasn’t that sort of week. I didn’t get the bear; the bear got me, which is weird, because I work inside of a locked house in the burbs, nowhere near bears. Possibly they were furloughed and looking for a fight. Possibly I did not attend all three hours of my “How to Determine if the UPS Guy at the Door Is Secretly a Bear Looking to Get You” workshop. Mostly, I think I am lucky to be alive, because I had a hackneyed, metaphorical fight WITH A BEAR.
Anyway, let’s not dwell on this week and its metaphors. Let’s dwell on next week, when I will in fact have these two things for sale in my Etsy shop, even if I have to list them while I’m punching a bear.
