A Tough Moment

Well, I broke down today. I was needing to do some final emails and phone calls to wrap up everything from the store and when I got done, I broke down. I have been doing pretty good up until this afternoon and I lost it. I think I cried for the loss of the store, the loss of a wonderful place that felt like home every time I walked through the doors.
I am doing better now. I know I will have more days like this but otherwise it's ok. I still get a queasy feeling in my gut when I go into the other stores here in town. I can't explain it but it still just doesn't feel right. I am working at it though and I am sure it will come a little easier each time and eventually the knots won't be there.
Take care and have a wonderful evening fellow crafters.

Getting Ready

Well, I have been going through my things and sorting stuff to put out for the garage sale tomorrow. I have gone through so much that I can actually see my desk now. It's quite amazing.

I still have a long way to go to get my room the way I want it but it will get there slowly.

Take care and I'll be back later!

Lazy Days

Well, the last couple of days Jason has had off. We have had a very nice, relaxing last couple of days even though I have a lot to get done in time for the yard sale this weekend. It will get done just rushed as usual.

In case you don't know, Continental Ranch is having their community wide yard sale this coming Saturday. I plan on having A LOT of things out for the sale so I hope you will all swing on by and take a look. I am clearing out my stuff since I am working with different things right now. Plus I need to get my work area so I actually want to work in. It's awful right now. Plus I would like to get my spare bedroom back in case I want to be in there once they start to work in the bathroom.

Everyone have a good week and I will be back soon!

The Weekend

What do you like to do on the weekend? For me, I have a tendency to do the cleaning that gets done regularly. The bathrooms, the kitchen floor, dusting the living and bedroom, vacuuming. Those kinds of chores. I also like to fit in some time to craft. I love being able to spend a little time creating something. Right now I'm working on some gifts that should have been done back in December but of course the procrastinator that I am, they are getting done the day before I need them.
Even though the store is now closed, we are still having our Christmas party. I see it as a final farewell to the store and I get to see everyone at least one more time before life decides to invade and make it so I don't see anyone anymore. Unfortunately, that happens in life. Many of the people I met working at the store I would never had the chance to meet otherwise. I am blessed to have met so many wonderful people, especially the people I have worked with.
Well, it looks like it's time to run to the store and pick up a few things to get started cooking for tomorrow. I am going to make it easy on myself and try and have most everything done today so all I have to do tomorrow is get ready and enjoy each others company.

Take care!

Well, I have been trying to do more cleaning. I really want to get started in our office but every time I go in there, I turn around and walk right back out. It's a mess. It's more than a mess. I don't know what I am going to do with any of it but with a garage sale coming up I need to get busy. I would like to get rid of a bunch of stuff if I can. I am tired of clutter and there is a lot of things I don't need to hold onto now. I'll have to post a photo or two just to show you how big of a mess I have. That doesn't count my spare bedroom. That's full of everything that has come from the store. I need to go through those boxes and figure out what's going on the garage sale and what's something I am keeping.

So...if you are on the look out for some things, come and see me in about a week and a half. There should be some good items at the sale.

A New Home

I found out you can't post on my other blog unless you sign up. Well, I don't like that so I am moving to a new home. I will keep my blog updated on the workings of my life and let you all know what is in store for me. Thank you all for everything.
