Crazy in Spoonerland

Well, things continue to be crazy in Spoonerland! Rick's job didn't work out because it was too much emotionally and physically. Going from nothing to full-time retail in a day doesn't work out very well! However, with him home and my writing going very well, we're the happiest we've been since we married.

Rick is brushing up on computer skills and looking for new work, and I'm continuing to work on my copywriting career. There are a lot of possibilities, and it's very exciting! The best part is that my daily work can look like the picture above if I choose. Well, except that it's fall now. But you know what I mean.

They say we may not get much snow this winter - that would be a bummer for me and my snowshoes. However, we'll see - the weather forecasters don't always know what they are talking about. Case in point - I got a pop-up that there would be showers in my area around 1pm, and it had been raining all morning. LOL!

Still no cat, but I'm seriously considering it...

Until next time!

I'm back!!

Well, I know it's been awhile, but I'm back! In the meantime, I've gotten married to my wonderful boyfriend, left my full-time job, and chosen to focus on my business. I'm committed to maintaining this as my personal blog, where I share my thoughts on home, life, marriage, and joy.

I recently found a great picture on Facebook that showed a mug with the phrase, "Due to the confidentiality of my job, I don't know what I'm doing." That would pretty much describe Rick and I right now! Rick has taken on a full-time job with Sleep Number that has great potential. Unfortunately, due to his disability, he's never worked before. As a result, he's overwhelmed and stressed.

For my part, I'm focusing on growing my business but have found it harder than anticipated to focus my time. It's getting better, though! I'm slowly working out a good schedule that meets all of my needs.

Is it just me, or is it really hard to share life online? Maybe it's because I don't have any kids to put pictures of. Perhaps I'll get a cat...

Until next time!
