A Fresh Start

This time tomorrow I will be laying my head down to go to sleep in my new room.  After all the crap, I have boxed up my belongings, shipped my furniture out and have found a new home.  I am excited.  I decided not to feel bad about leaving this house, it is time for a fresh start in all area's of life.  My new home is small, cute and cozy.  I will be able to do my beadwork, have internet access to do my schoolwork and my Etsy shop and my blog all from the comfort of my house.  My new grandbaby will have her own furniture there to come have overnight visits with Grandma instead of Grandma having to go to Amelia's house every weekend.  I am truly looking forward to all these changes.
Most especially not having to head for the library every single day to get my school work done. What a great change it will be to sit down at the computer and study when I want day or night!  I look forward to having the time to create and add new work to my shop.  The fact that I am moving to the country will take some getting used to.  After all these years I am so very used to being able to walk out my front door and then walk anywhere I need to go, the store, the bank, the library or just walk the main streets of town when things are jumping downtown.  My next door neighbor or should I say neighbor's is a herd of cows, I will be living right next door to a large cow farm.  Since I cannot drive anymore I will be at home a whole lot often than I have been in a very long time but I think I am looking forward to that too.   For now, it's off to bed, still have a lot of work to do tomorrow.

Here we go again

I just finished posting this amulet bag in my shop.  I haven't had a lot of time to do my beadwork lately.  I spend most of my creating hours doing schoolwork.  Now, while I am not going to put the shop in vacation mode, I won't be creating for a bit again.  I will just be posting the new work I have finished because my landlord is at it again.
I am very tired of fighting.  My health both physical and emotional needs a break so I have decided I need a fresh start somewhere else.  I need some life changes so Debbie can take care of Debbie before she is lost.  Problem is I have no where to go so I have some challenges ahead as far as what to do with my belongings.  I had them in storage last time I tried to move and let me tell you 3 large storage units is a lot of money. But we are talking furniture and belongings for a family of 4 accumulated over 20 some years.  I am going to have some impromptu lawn sales.  Since I will be moving into a smaller place I have no room for all the furniture other than what my daughter decides to take where ever she may end up.  I guess I have to look at it like I am cleaning out the closet that we just shove everything into.  Once I pare down to what I know I could fit in the smallest of places, LOL, that means my clothes and my beading supplies, then we will move on to the next decision.  In the mean time, my Etsy shop will remain open but after this week I probably will not be adding new items for a good month or so.
