Yes, it's been almost a month since my last post, but it's been a very busy time for me. Late August, early September is always busy which my son going back to school, my husband's birthday, my son's birthday and my son's new band parade requirements. Throw in my going back to work full-time after four years of being a stay-at-home mom.
Now, being a stay-at-home mom wasn't something I plan for, but when I was laid off from my job as an IT Project Manger back in May of 2009 my efforts in finding another job proved unsuccessful and after a while I petty much stopped looking. To be honest... I really wasn't excited about finding a new job, because I knew that whatever job I found would most likely not be a working from home one. And a work from home job is want I had for the last 9 of the 14 years I was w/that company. I don't do change well and I was in major denied over losing the best job of my working career.
Fast forward to late summer 2013... my son is 13 and in school all day. I have a lot of free time on my hands... Thankfully I love to scrapbook and make cards, which I do a lot of. And if I'm honest, I also spend a good amount of time on Pinterest, Facebook and at the crafts stores. But none of those things pay. So when an interesting job offer (although not in my field or my old pay scale) unexpectedly came my way, I really couldn't turn it down.
So as off Sept 3rd I'm working full-time again. Dealing with a one hour commute each way, but I'm taking it one day at a time.
Now, lets get back to crafting...
