I am two dramatically different people in my life. Actually that might be an under estimate but let's stick to two for now to keep it easy.
There is the actress/designer ME : I sleep in late. I stay up late. I work on creative projects that sometimes never get finished. I am a photographer and my own wedding planner. I love to talk about any and every thing for hours on end. You have a rambling long winded story with no point? Then I am the girl to tell it to.
Then, there is the Production ME: I wake up before the sun. I go to bed before prime time TV even starts. I sleep hard. I wear make-up everyday and have a massive "to do" list that must get done everyday. There is nothing personal on this list. I don't break and barely eat until the heart burn takes over. I operate in bullet point form. I work 13 hours days. And creative only comes in when I get to high light something.
Unfortunately, Potsch is living and existing with the Production ME right now. I have no time for small talk. If he has anything to tell me I need it in either an email or a text. When we talk, I make him get right to the point and I get snappy if he wants to elaborate at all. I am not pleasant to be around. It is not fair to him.
So, how do I fix it? He is so wonderful at listening and adjusting for me. He is patient and takes no offense to my craziness. He deserves better than a workaholic or a jobless bum.
Any advice? How can I let him know how special he is? How could I make it easier on him? Give it to me, boots. (Can I call you guys that? is that weird?)
