I'm tired AND smiling today.
'My team' came over last night. Silly me, feeling nervous, undeserving, hesitant, grateful, just a big mixed salad of emotions. Emotion hit me when they first walked in and after I introduced to them my newest friend 'toilet paper in my pocket', we all had a laugh and got down to it.
Janette led Ben the contractor, Pete the project manager, and Gina the stage setter/decorator into my lovely domain. We walked the rooms and talked about this and that, measurements were taken, discussions that this and that were/weren't possible, and none of them ran out the door in fright! Cool...
And cool folk they were! I loved digging into their minds to see what they saw and they seemed somewhat delighted (I hope that's what it was??) that while I sketched ideas, my enthusiasm crawled right out of me and even hit a few in my line of vision. When Ben started taking measurements for my 'dream catagory' windows in the kitchen, you'd think someone was tickling me...
While we were wrapping up, notes were being jotted down, quiet discussions around corners were noted, they all knew what to do. They just knew. And you know what that felt like? Someone was taking care of me. And I told them so.
How am I feeling? I'd say overwhelmed is pretty much it. Not sure whether to supress my excitement or live it. I seem to need to tuck it away now and then so I can focus on my work, but honestly, all I want to do is get rippin' and throwin' out and bangin' and sawin' and just get dirty!
I've started a new binder. I always start a binder of contacts and such when a new project comes upon me on a given subject. And how exciting to start one of those binders on something so unique, needed, desired!!! It's a different feeling than the binder I had on the septic system, I'll say that.
Thank-you all! It was such a pleasure to not only meet you, but to get to KNOW you. I am so looking forward to that part the very most.
