brain cells and shopping

dolly mama I've accumulated a lot of knowledge blog picOK, I’m honestly starting to scare myself!  I, single handedly figured out how to add the “Pin it” button to my images on my website.  I do not know where or how I figured it out without crashing my whole site. . . but I did it!  I feel like a kid who just learned to tie her shoes!  This part of my newly found brain is fabulously smart and I wonder where it has been my whole life. . .I seriously could have used it about a dozen times. . . just in the past hour!

I wasn’t always like this.  In my day, about 100 years ago when we walked to school uphill and barefoot, I was what one would call a “smart girl”.  So when did the brain cells decide to jump ship?  And how did I get them back at the age of 50?  Here is my theory. .

When my daughter Zoe was born 20 years ago, I breast-feed her for 8 months until she weaned me.  About that time I noticed I became a raving idiot . . .and you know why?  My daughter had sucked my brains out through my nipples.  You can’t make this stuff up!  So why now, after 20 years, have I acquired a brain Einstein would be proud of?  Maybe aliens came down and are using me as a test dummy.  Seems appropriate. . . maybe I had a secret filing cabinet in the back of my head that was miss filed all these years and when I clocked myself on the head with a shoe (don’t ask) I jarred the filing cabinet open.  I don’t know; but I guess I shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth.  I should go share my brilliance with the world . . .or. . . I could go shopping. . .being fabulously smart is exhausting!

I am woman, I am amazing, I am tired!

studio blog 1I won’t even start with the amount of brain cells I have wasted trying to get this freak’n site up . . . the filing system in my head does not have enough space to comprehend crap like this and create!  I deserve a king size “A” with a gold star and a plaque!  The problem is, I seem to be the only one who thinks so!  I am thoroughly mentally exhausted   You need to understand, I am not a woman who spends a lot of time thinking.  I am more of a jump then learn to swim kind of girl.  Smoke literally came out of my head while I spent two weeks obsessing over what type of site I was gong to re-build and then two more weeks trying to build the site (in between crying and thinking I can’t do this).  I could of paid someone to build the site for me; but I am too cheap, I could have bought a template and we wouldn’t be having this conversation, but nooooooooo. . .I had to buy Headway Theme and design it myself from scratch!  I even did some coding, (which I always thought was what happens when you die!)  I have learned more in the past month about building web-sites then I have learned in my 50 years being here!  It’s time to get back to my studio which used to be neatly organized before I turned into this person who thinks before she leaps,  my   e-mails have piled up and I think I lost the dog under all of the paperwork, not to mention I haven’t designed a damn thing!  I think I need to re-boot (look at me, using computer lingo), go buy me a new filing cabinet and of coarse. . . . a pair of shoes!  Even computer geniuses needs to look good!
