Last Sunday, the Etsy New Hampshire Street Team had a meet-up in Concord. It was really great to meet a lot of the other artists I've gotten to know through their work and through our Yahoo group. There were a lot of great ideas about ways we can help each other with marketing, business skills and promoting ourselves. I also learned about a non-profit organization called MicroCredit-NH. They help micro business owners get loans, learn business skills and network. I went to an orientation meeting today and I really think they can help me. I really don't know a whole lot about starting a business or running a business and having the support of people who are in similar situations will really inspire me. I've found that I am the type of person who does well with a support system. Some people can go it on their own, but I now know that I am not one of those people.
Today was weigh-in day and I hit my 10% goal! I have lost 21 pounds since starting Weight Watchers in November. We set my next goal at another 10% which is 18 pounds.
Patrick has been dealing with a ton of crazy things with work so he won't be coming home this weekend. I'll miss him lots. I guess our Valentine's Day/Patrick's Birthday celebration will be extra special. I got him an awesome gift which I won't be posting here until after he receives it. Since I am all alone this weekend, I'll be doing laundry and taxes. It'll be like an awesome party.
