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 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.

The Good with the Bad

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.

Now you can't say you're the only one that reads this, haha. I found you through the Etsy forums, and thought I'd say hello! I liked reading your intro - it was witty and down to earth.

well thanks livy, how nice to know someone has found my poor grammar and abysmal typing slightly entertaining. I guess this whining puppy has brought a little psoitive karma into my life. Please visit often.
