I don’t know why they aren’t thriving in the house, but they all have been dropping leaves, one by one. These 2 above are what I have left and so far they seem stable, but I’ve killed the jade plants and the hen and chicks. I think they need more light and better drainage.
We’re tired. Mark’s been very busy baking and packing orders the last week and it was one of those days yesterday where we are both running around. I left early in the morning to go to a client meeting for 5 hours and rushed back, leaving the meeting early to pick up M from school. C got dragged to Costco and a gift box delivery trip to Manhattan, and Mark left for the kitchen at 4 when I got back with Mia. We’ve all been feeling a bit under the weather – not really sick, but enough to make it annoying, so hopefully we will be in better spirits once we feel better. I’m heading into a difficult month where I will be in the design phases of 2 work projects. I don’t love the process, mostly because it can be a tumultuous period of frustration, stress, self doubt, a mental and emotional rollercoaster of creative blocks and surges, and a vulnerable time where you open yourself up for criticism and rejection. Sometimes I wish my job was more black and white, right answer/wrong answer, facts and not subjective opinion. It’s tiring. I just want to be selfish and design for myself.
