I made a sale at Cafe Press!

Actually I made two sales! So that was nice. My mom bought two things from my Cafe Press Store, a package of greeting cards and a mug. I have a really great mom! These are gifts for friends of the family. I was totally surprised by what she picked out.

Now here's the stupid thing: Instead of being really happy about the sale, I am only moderately happy because there is this really silly insecure part of me that wonders if she had a really had time finding something that she liked well enough to buy, the ridiculous insecure part of me that wonders if this is what could be called a "mercy sale". Why can't I just be happy with the sale?

Just the other day I was telling my sister about how I was trying to think up an "I would be happier if..." and couldn't come up with anything, that my "happiness meter" was over the top, and that while I could come up with "It would be nicer if..." there was no "happier" if. Then, something good happens, something successful happens, and suddenly I'm thinking I would be happier if I could just let myself be happy (with the sale) ... which sounds insane!

So, what's up with that?

Hey, it's me, your sister. We got a new computer and your e-mail address didn't move over and -here's how stupid I am - I can't find your e-mail address anywhere! I see you've tried to call a couple of times. Hope all is well - I have been out doing errands. Sorry.
