My last post was really a half post. Our film festival really ate my brain this year. In fact so much, that the book sadly fell to the wayside quickly. Reading was off to a good start, smart, sweet, funny – what’s not to love? I remember us reading books together when we first started dating. There seemed to be an Anne Rice craze around then and we decided to read Interview With The Vampire. Anyway, reading together reminded me of those times. Love was new, time was aplenty, and we needed less money. Back then we both worked on the Pacific Stock Exchange.
The time put into the film festival really paid off. Our ticket sales were up by 88% this year. That’s almost double! Could it have happened without the support of friends and family nearby? I don’t know.
Today we have two kids (three if you count the festival, she’s five just like our younger) and we both work in the arts. So Love is Huge, Time is Nil, Money is Gone.
And sew (hint) I have officially resigned as Filmmaker Liaison, Housing Coordinator, and Steering Committee member. A new beginning.
Just as my blog is titled: i fret, i craft, i run. But I have a confession: while I may post here things that are mostly upbeat, shiny, and with the best intent of sharing goodness, my life is by no means perfect. Simply put life is often less than glamorous. But I forgive myself for the falls I’ve taken and do my best to get up gracefully and try again. My hope is to share all of the fun, wisdom, creativity and resourcefulness that I experience as a mother and domestic engineer in hopes that it inspires others.
