It's going to be a quiet day today, a yoga pants and ponytail day, with laundry and research reading and puppy snuggling.
And okay--maybe--I'm also going to order display stuff for my Stella & Dot business, because I got my first real paycheck yesterday, and it felt every kind of awesome.
I've had one paycheck, before this one, since my daughter was born.
Thank you, BC Theater Department, aka Holly's UnGooglable husband, for enabling that little payday, and for the crazy fun of designing Macbeth in a day, with Walmart and JC Penney as our only resources.
The amazing feeling of getting a paycheck, for having fun? Indescribable.
And yes, both of my paychecks of the last twelve years were for doing something I love.
Designing, styling, finding just the right look for a character or a person?
I love that.
Because there's another paycheck I want, too.
And it's time to find the joy in that again.
