Work, Work, Work

That's what I've been doing for the last three days, in case you may have been wondering what had become of me. I am so unsuited for steady employment that I'm sure I was actually intended to be independently wealthy and it was only by some evil twist of fate that I'm left with the need to work at a job for pay.

I don't mean to give the impression that I'm lazy. I'm always doing something; sewing, gardening, making jewelry, running Mom's Taxi, cooking, cleaning - well, not that much cleaning. But I find the effects of the every day sameness of a job to be roughly equivalent to repeatedly driving my head into a brick wall. Thankfully I work from home so I can vary my routine from day to day but the last few weeks my workload has more than the point where a lot of my flexibility has vanished. I must work at certain times or work will be left unfinished.

All that being said, it is my intention to post the sash tutorial later today, right after I run to store to pick up fresh batteries for my digital camera, so be sure to check back later today if you're interested.

I know what you mean Paula. I had so many years of running after kids, doing community stuff and working with my husband. Now I decided to take a part-time job- which may turn full -time, and I am wondering how in the world I am going to do everything that I WANT to do!

I landed up on your blog so confused about work - i am not sure what to do with myself. i have a highly stressed job in the banking sector and i feel that i have no energy or time for myself and hubbie. trying to start a family - no luck yet. anyway i am trying to think of alternative employment or something i can do from home but it is difficult not to have a steady monthly income.
