It's a breath of fresh air to be typing a post into my blog again. Life got pretty crazy since the holidays. Our family has been ridden with head colds and the flu, 374 switched full time jobs and I've adopted a new hobby. Here's a peak into what has been going on in our house.
374 was beyond fed up with his previous employer. It's hard to go to work every day when you feel absolutely under appreciated. He now works for a company who builds ambulances from the ground up. He is in love with this job. He enjoys going to work every day, and is in a great mood when he gets home. No more working 6-7 days a week for weeks, even months, on end. He works first shift hours, Monday through Friday. We have a weekend life again - I'm pretty sure we forgot what that lifestyle is like!
I've been working on a project that has turned into a full blown hobby. I came across some adorable beaded necklaces for Sassy right around Christmas. I knew they'd be easy for me to make for her. I started buying the supplies online, before I knew it I was elbows deep in beads and wire and pendants. I had people asking for them, so I started making them and sharing them on a Facebook page. I enjoy making them for both my daughter, and those who want to buy them. I'm getting ready to share them at a Mom to Mom sale at Bubby and Sassy's school. I enjoy putting together combinations of beads and pendants. I never really ever considered myself good with pairing colors, or anything artsy but I really enjoy this. You can see more of my creations on my Sassy and Dapper Facebook page!
We are all counting down until summer vacation. The kids are done on May 22nd. I don't know who's more excited - me or the kids. They enjoy being outside as much as they can and I hate having to drag them in for baths and school bedtime. We've done some work around our yard and back deck, and we all have enjoyed some grilled dinners on the back deck and late weekend nights outside with our friends on the few nights it's been really nice and warm. I can't wait until we can do that every night.
Now that things have calmed down - 374 has settled into his new job, I've worked my new hobby into our daily schedule and the kids are outside with their neighbor friend more I have more time on my hands. More time to dedicate to this blog I've missed more than words over the last couple months.
