I got my nails did yay. :)
Those of you who commented recently will have received an email from me with a link to the website. So now you know what is keeping me so busy! It is an awesome business and lots of fun. But I’m finding the recent transitions a little.. difficult.
On May 25th we began workshops in the studio again. Pre-COVID, we’d been running at least two evenings a week, sometimes three, plus some daytime sessions. I have a differently abled client who was attending once a week privately – she can’t handle having other people around. My last session with her was March 9th and we shut down the evening sessions not long after that. I think by March 16th we stopped running as a studio.
So that was quite a bit of time – over two months – without people attending for lengthy amounts of time. We still had people popping in to pick things out or up, but not staying for two and a half hours as they do with a session. We’d got used to having our evenings back.
I didn’t need to have a tidy kitchen by 6:30pm, I didn’t need to have dinner eaten by then, I didn’t need to factor in time to get ready or set up the studio.. and now I/we do need to do that. It is yet another adjustment in a long line of adjustments.
Harder for me I think is to transition from running full pelt from 7-7:30am till 10pm at night as I have been doing for a couple of months now. It is 8:35pm and I should – and will – take the rest of the night off.
I’ve had a HUGE day, 3 sessions in the studio plus 13 clients attended to purchase items, a massive package arrived which I needed to open and get a couple of things out of and thus had to take it all out of the box, a couple of other deliveries, four packages packed and posted..
I’m pretty tired and know I need to take a break.. yet I know there is a lot of work sitting there which I need to do..
It is really hard for me not to just do it, as Nike says. I need to learn how to not do it. :)

Very pretty nails! I love the color. I don’t have a clue when our salons are opening, but I enjoy the relaxation of a mani/pedi more than the results. I may have color put on my toes again though since we’re having sandals weather now. :) It sounds like life is getting back to a semblance of normal.
Cool nails. Yes, you DO have to learn to just not do it. But so glad you’re in demand. Thanks for the email. Great business!
Love those kitties!
I did previously say I’d love an email about the website but haven’t received anything. I hope I didn’t do anything wrong
I hoe all is well with you all and that the adage “no news is good news” holds true.
Silvertiger – yes all is well – just been busy. I have a post forming in my skull brain though, will post it when I get a chance! :)
Glad to hear all is OK – I was getting a little concerned that you’d gone quiet!
