oh wow .. just checking in to wish you a nice weekend. i am hanging in there, thanks for asking. the summary of my visit to a spine specialist was basically here are some new meds, new exercises and these things take time. new meds helping? i think so but not sure anymore. a little tired of hearing myself talk about pain though - come on ursula get over it!
driving my daughter over to a pal's house. beautiful weather. she plays a song on her phone she listens to literally 20 times in a row she loves it that much. i recognize the song from 1977 - she is almost the same age i was when i liked the song. E.L.O.'s mr. blue sky. it's chunky and fun and hopeful and hearing her sing along makes my heart hurt. i'm so glad she's at this age where you do that and i know the feeling she is feeling i think - more than that - i know the bloody song and how it makes you feel when you're a tween girl!
getting orders together, both retail and an onslaught of wholesale summer orders. so many dresses flying out the door these days. on my desk sits a heap of florals and jaquards i bought to make a collection for autumn. wools, cotton, silks .. mixing the prints within one style both with skirts and blouses is the idea. i have a lot of time to think about it while i'm chained to my ironing board these past few days ;> i think it's going to be really pretty though, i do. xo
