What. A. Weekend.
Right now I am back to the office, just like everyone else who is wrapping up their weekend and buckling into another week of computers, desks, phones, and so on. I may work for myself now, but I still work and mostly sitting down at a desk. I have 10k words to write this week, the blog, four design jobs, and (as of just checking now, 987 emails to read since Saturday morning!) Holy crow will this be a brutish Monday morning! I type this with a smile on my face. I'll take the week in the office, and after the running, carting, riding, shooting, friends, drinks, and chores I'll be looking forward to some down time with the clicking of a keyboard and the strong taste of coffee that would scare some people into drinking tea forever.
P.S. I reread that post from over a year ago, when I was struggling with the choice to buy Merlin. Then I look at the woman in the photo just above it, about to head out on a full day in the driver's seat with good friends I only know because I took that chance and wrote this blog. If I took the advice of cautious people I would be much sadder for it. And a lot worse off in all the ways that actually matter. Point being: go get your ponies, ladies. Life is damn short.
