I’ve been pretty numb lately… I haven’t been specifically unhappy, but I haven’t been happy either. Things that I would have found joy in before have just kind of washed over me. I don’t know if I’m overwhelmed, underwhelmed, or what… but I haven’t been myself. Today though? Today was a good day.
Today started like any other… me, knowing I should be excited about the dog show… but just not feeling much. Stuck in a fog. But somewhere it got lifted. I got to handle Clair (who is a bear), my friend Rosalie’s Chihuahua – and who showed very well for me. I got to visit with all my local dog show peeps, including Jen (one of my Adult Pod Volunteers from Camp fYrefly). And I got to take the wee girlie to the show site after the main show was over (with a special show lead that I made just for her) so she could practice for tomorrow, which was SUCH a treat. She’s going to do awesome in Juniors. 😀 And the rest of the evening was just me, Damon, and the girlie… just being a family and ignoring anything else that might have nagged at the mind. I needed today. Hopefully this is the start of me growing back into myself.
So… no plans for tomorrow morning? Pop by the Soccer Center in Saskatoon and come find me. 🙂 Or, if you’re available in the early afternoon, the girlie should be making her debut around 1:30 or so… come by and cheer her on. 😀
In spite of my excitement over the huge numbers generated by my groupon, I’m still sick. So the long hours I’ve been putting in answering questions, responding to emails, and streamlining the booking process have taken their toll. I’m absolutely burnt right out. Happy, but needing to sleep and get this bug out of my system.
For those of you who have purchased a groupon, THANK YOU! Your support is truly overwhelming. No one expected these kinds of numbers. Even Patrick (the groupon guy) estimated about 70 total sales… so the fact that we are now sitting at 185 is absolutely incredible! Thank you, truly.
Now onto business. 😉
The shear volume of emails, FB messages, and phone messages I am sorting through is overwhelming. I am doing my best to get through everything, and your patience is so appreciated.
The best thing you can do to help ensure that I get to you in a timely fashion is this:
Send me an email with “Groupon Booking” in the subject line. Within your message include a little information about your family, and the type of session you are hoping for. The more I know about you and what you hope to accomplish the better. Also include three or four dates/times, in order of preference, for your booking. My email address is photographer at tobi-dawne.com (replace “at” with “@”)
Having all this in ONE message will make the whole process much quicker, and it will help me during the next couple of days as I actually start booking everyone in. Once your sitting is booked, I will send you an email with your date and time… and I will also answer any questions you may have mentioned in your message.
Thanks everyone. I really do appreciate your patience and your support. Truly, this has been an amazing couple of days – in spite of being sick. 😉 I am very much looking forward to getting to know all of you, and helping to create some incredible memories.
