Weighing Opitions

Today was one of those days in which I refused to move from my bed. I kept saying I want a break! My phone rang, someone knocked on my door, and it was just too cold to get from under the covers. I know what you are thinking "Clem you own your own company and all you have to do is design things from your house and only leave for meetings." And your right, but in that respect give me the benefit of the doubt I am latched onto my computer and internet as if it were necessary for life. Which in my case it is because thats how I pay the bills. Between emails of clients and emails of people who might become clients I am on Etsy chatting with potential clients and networking to no end.
I originally felt like I did nothing in my day. Like all I did was sit around and play video games...which was true but not quiet. I would work for x-amount of time and then while waiting on responses I would play Rock Band or Tropico. I would stare down at my hands and then whack myself a good one for not trying harder to build up my own company. Its just my brain couldn't wrap around how to try harder and how to increase my earrings to more than 500+ a month.
I started on redoing my website and I even built up a new color scheme and it just wasn't good enough. I started again and again and now I am also done but there is forever a piece of code that doesn't work or an image that takes too long to load. Constant saving and unsaving. My sleep schedule has become insane because I am always thinking always pushing. Needing newer brushes and cooler banners for Etsy.
Yet I can't stop. I love building websites, I love seeing someone buy one of my banner designs off Etsy, and I love networking. Its like a bonus to no end to be able to do things I love. Yet today was one of those days that I didn't want to. I didn't want to log into blogger, etsy, yahoo, myspace, twitter, and mycraft. I just wanted to stay in bed and maybe have some chips.
So here I am lol. At work but I am way happier after watching this...

lol, I can't get out of bed in the mornings either! It's too nice and warm and all around comfy! Sometimes you need a break from all the promoting and just eat those chips and chocolate cake and whatever else is in the house.

That guy singing actually has a hawt voice! lol

Lol, well since I am always eating some random item when you talk to me I should for sure upgrade to chocolate cake. I think his voice was real nice at that one part where.....Lol, sorry what was I saying?
