I haven’t been around here at all in forever. Things have been changing around here.
First off, it was a long and harsh winter. I didn’t think it would ever end. I found out the first week of my school semester that I would be losing my job that I had held my entire adult life. By mid-February, it was gone. By spring break, I had found another job. I am satisfied with it I think, but it’s a whole new world for me. I hate initiating change, but once I get that ball rolling, I want to change everything. I feel more freedom. I was so busy with school, that only very recently have I felt like I was able to grieve losing my job, and able to ponder what I want to do. Man, this winter dumped more on me than just snow, I’ll tell you. School is the highlight of my winter though. I was inducted into our Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa. A very, very proud moment of my life. I am so very close to obtaining my second degree. It makes me smile.
I have also felt like I was in a scrap slump. I still scrapbook weekly, but I don’t feel as inspired. Summer this year is offering me many chances to get that inspiration back though. I hope to get back to my old self and show up here more often. I just felt like the blog was one more thing to deal with, and I didn’t want to. Scrapbooking is very therapeutic, so I hope to also get out all my feelings on paper this summer.
My family and my birds have been my strength this whole time. I hope to be back here soon, and more frequently. For now, I’m getting back to me.
Thanks for stopping by,
