I got past the big birthday without losing my mind last year.
Although I did lose a job I liked shortly thereafter. But I sort of got past that.
Then the surgery. Gastric bypass is not for weenies.
The ensuing months were a struggle. In oh so many ways. I had begun to believe I’d lost my sense of humor!
Oh, say it ain’t so!
I certainly lost my blogging mojo.
Now it’s 2015. Almost two months into it actually. I spent the first two months of this year making enemies of work mates…and there I was thinking I was doing a good job. What was I thinking?
And ennui settled in with a vengeance.
Damn, I really hate that. Seems to happen a lot around here.
So where is the lemonade?
Well…I’m squeezing lemons now.
I’m now working on reduced hours…not good for the purse. Not good for morale, either. I mean, we are of an age that should be more fun and less worry, right?
Okay, I’m being selfish and ungrateful. Time to stop.
Time to look for my happy place …that place in my heart and head untouched by any woe. It is a choice.
I’ve begun to build picture frames using pallet material. Recycling. The spousal unit cut a few apart for me and left the wood neatly stacked on my work tables in the barn.
Weather permitting, I’ll be back in the barn soon. And soon after that my etsy shop, name changed to aFrameJob, will be stocked. I’m signing up to participate in the Little Rock etsyfest2015 at the end of April. Perhaps a new career will be launched. We’ll see. I suck at follow-through. It’s time to learn.
Give me lemons and I’ll build frames!
It feels really good to be here. I should come back more often
