Six days on the road with Steve started out last Friday with sunny skies and warm temps....Saturday was filled with the same....lots of stops here and there along the back roads from SE Georgia to the Carolina's over to Atlanta GA. The rain moved in as we were making our little weekend road trip north then headed west. It rained, it stormed, the wind blew, the rain came down harder with stronger winds until we were finally sitting in a hotel in the dark. The power is back on after several hours, but not only had all this weather knocked the power out it hit the server and I had no Internet connection. No one else did either, but I was there for 3 more days while Steve had meetings. I love these road trips, while he is in meetings I usually catch up on the business side of running my business. Then when I come home I can create without feeling guilty for not being on the computer. Do you know how long 3 days are without the Internet....way too long! I read all the magazines I had with me, finished a book, and did lots of journaling. In the end all that gloom had actually bloomed, not just with that gorgeous pot of blooms I spotted while sitting at a red light, but I had reworked my goals, what I wanted and how I was going to accomplish them and tweaked my marketing plans for my art, as well as MMCA Marketplace and the MP Blog. Although I don't recommend doing without your Internet, I do recommend taking a day or so here and there and see what happens when you pretend you don't have it. The first 24 hrs are the hardest I promise!
