Wow its been awhile! Life just seems to get busier and busier around here. Growing up you always heard the older ones talk about how time flies...never really understood it til now. This past year has been a big time of readjustment for us. As my family is getting older so are my priorities and thus I needed to make some changes.
About 3 months ago I was feeling completely overwhelmed and just tired. I was trying to keep up with the demands of my bag business and take care of my boys and their schedules. It got to the point where nothing was fun for me anymore. I was just tired and worn out! So I put my bag business on hold and just focused on the boys. It worked...for awhile. You see for me the bag business wasn't just a business..it was part of my soul! I LOVE sewing, its like oxygen for me. I can go a little without it but then I start to sink. Around this time I also went back to driving school bus for my boys. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!!!! I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoy taking them to and from school. I love kids...their stories...their drama...most of all their HONEST expression of their feelings. Going back to driving was like putting on your favorite pair of PJ's...just so comfortable!
The only drawback was I was now working 2 jobs, taking care of 3 boys and totally missing sewing. Something had to go!
So this week I made the decision to quit working at the hospital.
I have been there almost 9 years but as I sent my managers an email I felt the weight of the world lift from my shoulders and a smile cross my face!
I feel so blessed that I am able to leave there...it frees me up to resume my bag business and to my absolute love of sewing! I am so excited for the new year to start and to be able to do what I love without any pressure. I already have quite a few shows lined up for next year and some AH-MAZ-ING bags to show off.
So stayed tuned....2013 is gonna rock!
