Last week was a bad week...sorta. We lost 2 accounts. 1 big one and one smaller one. I was shocked by the 1st one because last month everything was great. But it turns out there's a lot of internal issues and it was beyond our control...and I know it was not our fault. We weren't happy about it, but I'm not going to cry about it, because I know something better is around the corner. The second account I was glad to see go. We've tried to help them, offering them a discount because everyone is struggling and even offering to do service for free. All it would have taken was a phone call. It made no difference that we just reduced our pricing twice in the last 8 months or that we've done the service for free for almost 2 years...apparently the "new" trustee's know better. We're done with getting walked on. You get what you pay for and if you can't afford it, you don't need it. It would have been nice to know they were taking bids though, especially after reducing our prices on our own 6 months ago. There's a reason, I know it. All in God's time.
I happened to be in town last week and noticed these blooming. It gave me hope that spring's right around the corner!
I'm checking off things one by one and I'm starting to see the light. Packages shipped, shopping done, handmade gifts finished...sorta..., school's ALMOST out and the spirit is slowly returning. I'm heading out of town to go meet my new niece/nephew, so hopefully new baby pictures to come!
I love holiday bokeh...need to try some more before taking down the lights.
