So, I am doing a bit better at keeping up and trudging through my list of things to accomplish. Somehow acccomplishments are more satisfying than just getting things done ( haha, I can so easily fool my own mind sometimes).
I have become a more active member of the Jetteam on etsy. even posting in the team shop. It does ease my mind to know I am doing my part and not just riding others' coattails.
On the homefront, I can see a light at the end of this tunnel of testing I have been swallowed by. Most of it has passed and the results seem to be filing in at a little more than a trickle. I am glad to have done it and praying that it is the means to the end I so seperately seek. DS has been a trouper. No one wants to solve his school/learning woes more than him. I cannot imagine the place he lives regarding that. He is so strong to be able to deal with all of the frustration and confusion and bury all his emotions in a effort to appear so together. I will be so relieved to see all of this come to a head. While I strongly hesitate to claim an end to the battle, I do wish for it. realistically I know that battle will never end, but I can certainly hope it eases.
I maintain aspirations of more creative time and energy for creations like this. Here's hoping for an easier, less stressful week with more "me" time.
So, here I am.....
The girl that said she'd never blog. The far from computer savvy girl that is always up for a challenge despite a serious lack of time.My blog goals. Do I have blogging goals? Hmmm, I guess I should. So I pledge to be funny, lighthearted, not vent or complain to much and maybe just maybe share a crumb of wit and wisdom on occassion.I will most likely chat about etsy, my addiction and muse. the incredible artsists and friends I have found in a community that oozes with creativity, friendship, support and a home for all things handmade.You will hear me ramble about the insanity of my life including my 3 boys, ages 12, 16 and 53. Yes, that last one I am married to, but trust me, he is just as much boy as man. After 17 years of marriage I find myself raising him along with them. Then again, he would probably say the same of me at times. I will often speak of friends I would go to the ends of the earth for and a family that more often than not defines dysfunction. Then again, I strongly believe a functional family is the stuff legends are made of.I am a lover of music of all kinds and not so much the TV ( except maybe Glee). I have an addiction to handmade glass, especially venetian and lampwork beads as well as unique pottery. I have made a concerted effort to tame my jewelry fetish with my own creations which can be seen at http://www.kjbeads.etsy.com/If you haven't figured out by now, I can jabber my jaws and my fingers as if someone could care what I have to say.
