Working Around the Gremlins
You know how it is. As soon as you decide to move, all sorts of things start to go wrong- with the house, the car, the pet, etc. I wonder if the gremlins were just waiting for that moment to strike with their full force and mischief when you have made the crucial decision and you are faced with a notebook full of jobs to get yourself, the pets, the house, etc. ready for the move.
Sort of like a version of Murphy's Law: If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something. or If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then. or If anything can't go wrong, it will anyway.

I walked into the room where I have my craft/art/sewing supplies and found a shelf had fallen off the wall. It knocked the basket off the wall that was below it. The shelf knocked down pictures, collages, supplies, etc. Some were on the floor, some in the trash can, some on the desk, chair, ...
I could find no reason why the shelf fell down. It wasn't broken, the screws were still firmly in the wall, too. This happened without me hearing it happen and I was home at the time. Even Lucy, who is suspicious of every normal noise and the abnormal ones, too- didn't hear a thing. Gremlin?
I don't mind about the shelf falling, nothing broke, especially not the lamp with that new curly bulb which would require HAZMAT Teams and all sorts of misery to clean up, no that was fine, thank goodness.
It's that thing which makes you doubt which bugs me. Have I made the right decision? I will never get all these jobs done in time. Maybe I should change the date? That last one is a big contender, and one I will be fine with. It's about the journey and not the end. I'm trying not to overlook daily blessings while I search the horizon for my big leap to come.
New End Studio sounded like a suitable name when I first started the blog. I have been thinking to change the name in line with the new direction my compass is pointing. That may sound corny, but it's true. Name change is possible, but not the top of my list right now.
How did you decide on your blog or business name? Did you ever change it?
