July & August 2014

The past two months have been quite the roller coaster ride.  Extremes in every aspect of my life.  

Due to all the new and increased demands in my life and on my time I have had to make the painful decision to put my Etsy shop on vacation.  I am available through the Etsy e-mail/contact system and also on my Facebook page.  I can always do a custom listing for something one might of had their eye on!   

I started a new job as a grocery checker on July seventh.  Due to "new job" fatigue and illness I pretty much ate, slept and worked the first six weeks.  I am finally starting to get into the swing of things I think. I am feeling more energetic than I have in years.  I am getting a great work out while working and I am re-discovering how much I enjoy being a checker. (I was checker at a pet food store many years ago.) 

I am starting to learn to balance my time in the glass shop when I'm not at my checker job along with housekeeping, yard work and fixing up my garage.  My relationship shriveled up and died along with some dreams. Reality is cold, hard and brutal.  It has made me look hard at myself and I think I've learned a lot about myself.  

So for now I am learning to balance the most immediate concerns in my life.  With learning that balance I will be able to gradually add other things back into my life.  Part of this is also catching up where I left off about three years ago home and yard wise.  A good topic for another day.
