It doesn't faze them, bless their hearts, they are so awesomely passionate about it. When I tell them, "thanks (insert one of the MANY names of people that were jazzed about doing it themselves), but hell no will I be doing it myself". I'm buying that bitch.
look back at me, I quickly realize that we are who we are and that's all there is to it.
My inutility and uselessness does not end there, birthday parties are in this category too. I don't make jack. I buy it all at etsy (where the doers dwell), while my mom friends are baking cakes, taking classes to bake said cake (if they have a challenging theme), making homemade invitations, blah blah blah. While I do covet these folks so very much, I am immediately thinking who can bake, and decorate cake or cupcakes, where I can order invitations from, and if there is enough money in the budget to have a photographer at the party, because I can't be bothered.
So really what I have just realized whilst blogging is that the doers and buyers are really the ying and yang, the cookies and milk, the wind beneath my cardinal wing. Symbiotic relationship, fo shizzle. Well shoot, I'm part of an ecosystem. Cool, I don't feel so useless now.
So, there are the "doers" and the "have somebody else do it' ers" and I am perfectly ok being the latter. We all have a place in this big, wide world. Moral of the story...tally up the prices of the material, gas to get to the store, and the creativity fee, and I'll buy it from you.
