1/26/2013: Frustration    Saturday, January 26, 2013

I spent the entire day yesterday working on the website I started on 1&1. I finally got all the photos, descriptions, and prices loaded on the sales page. Then I went on to the settings for the online store and that's when I found there was no inventory control integrated in the software! I called the help line and asked what people do if they sell a one-of-a-kind item and he said, "Well, I guess you would have to go on the site really quick and manually delete the item." Grrrrrrr! I have to admit, this isn't something I thought of checking beforehand.

1/20/2013: Treasures!    Saturday, January 26, 2013

We all have treasures in our lives. People we love. Beloved items from our childhood. For me, some of the most treasured items I have belonged to those I have loved in my life. I lost my mom 9 years ago on 1/24/2004. She is never far from my thoughts, but this time of year always makes me yearn to pick up the phone and talk to her or run to WV for a much needed Mom hug. My mom was the kindest woman I have ever known. She would, quite literally, give you the shirt off her back. As with every mother-daughter relationship, ours was sometimes testy.

1/17/2013: Coffee!    Saturday, January 26, 2013

There is a group of ladies who have met for coffee for the last 20+ years...every Thursday morning...same little coffee house. They started meeting as friends with children the same ages, and even though the coffee house has changed owners at least three times, and their children have just about all left home for college or travels or jobs or marriage, these wonderful women continue to meet every week to share and laugh and support each other. I was truly blessed back in 2002 when I had my little needlework shop and would stop in for a coffee a couple times per week.

1/6/2013: Senioritis    Saturday, January 26, 2013

Mr. Virgo and I have "senioritis". We're in between the work-a-day world of earning and the retirement years of enjoying the fruits of our labor. It's worse than high school! At this age, you want to just go outside and play. You want to have milk and cookies and a nice nap. Mr. Virgo has a coupled of years on me and he works long, stressful hours so he is more than ready for the change. that is one of the reasons I've changed my course. I'd like tot pave the way and create something we can do together that would be lucrative.

1/3/2013: Transitions    Saturday, January 26, 2013

Whenever I make a huge change in my life, I am always faced with 'buyer's remorse". It may be a week, or a month, or a year later but eventually that feeling creeps over me and makes me question if I made the right choice. Of course, hind sight being 20/20, I can look back and very clearly see how things could have gone differently, however, when you are in the midst of the forest, it is quite difficult to discern how many trees there are.

1/2/2013: Progress!    Saturday, January 26, 2013

After spending eight hours yesterday in the "disaster room", I have things pared down to a few boxes. I read a meme on Facebook the other day that said "We'll be old friends until we're old and senile. then we'll be new friends!" that's how I felt yesterday when I was going through boxes. Much of these items were leftovers from when I had my little needlework shop. Seeing the carefully chosen items I elected to keep made me itch to get my hands busy and create wonderful things.
