here to there

Ever have the feeling like things are swirling all around you way too fast but you're basically standing still? It's usually when you're overwhelmed with choices or ideas but none of those ideas are coming to fruition fast enough so you basically feel stuck. and wait. for. it. to happen.
My life right now is being at point A and anxious to get to point C but the road to get there has been fast and furious and at times long and winding and I keep reminding myself to let it B.
When you look back at the biggest moments in your life chances are you see how those times mapped out. How it felt like forever, but in reality there was a reason for the wait. When you look back you see how you started at A, endured B for a bit, and finally ended up at C and thought about what a wild and crazy ride you were just on. And how you'd love to do it again.

sunday thoughts

so happy that tomorrow is monday and I have the day off. 
over the moon happy that the weather is turning "back to normal" and it's back to a mild winter.
not too happy about the recent ebay transaction that I was involved in. 
I received a coat that was not near as "wonderful" and "beautiful" as the seller suggested. Brought it to ebay protection but since it wasn't a different color or missing a sleeve I wasn't kicked back original payment. 
The good thing about ebay is that I can leave feedback for the seller that reflects how I feel= negative feedback; and a warning to others to watch out for that seller. The better thing is that ebay buyers can't be left negative feedback from the sellers so my 800+ positive feedback still stands. Hell hath no fury...
Keeping busy on this end with school (each day last week recorded minimum of 150 students out with flu, virus, or stomach bug); house hunting in Santa Barbara; flower making for a son's wedding; and a photo shoot for DOTS in March. Lots of posts to come and thanks for checking in.

LOVE having the week off...don't love that it snowed...but it's melting quick. Showing some ebay and etsy style...the camo jacket by Zara, the Ralph Lauren cashmere black turtleneck, the Golden Goose boots and Brighton belt all were won (and some great deals!) on ebay. The vintage squash blossom necklace is from an etsy seller that I wish lived in my neighborhood...she's 75 and too cool for school.
