My title of the post says it all. I thought I'd better let you know I was still alive!! My summer has been very hectic and it is finally settling down and I will do better at staying connected on my blog. I have been putting a lot of things on my Etsy site and trying to figure out what direction to take with my business. I have been dejunking - taking things to the thrift store - cleaning out closets and just trying to simplify my efforts and my life. I have been working at cleaning out my spot in the garage and not bring anything else in. I have been working on cutting out Christmas ornaments and pincushions for the craft shows I am going to do this fall and just working on getting organized. That said I feel that it will happen - I will get organized!!! I just have to guard against getting too busy and going to many directions because then I am not effective at anything!!
One thing I am going to do this year is I am volunteering my time to the PTSA and am going to serve as treasurer. I feel I need to be active in the community and this is a way I can serve. This will accomplish 2 things - I will help the PTSA and I will get to know some of the people at the school. So I will give service and get socialization which I really need - I have felt very disconnected from Jim's school and as he gets older I want to be more connected not less.
I don't have a lot of time to write today but just wanted to make a quick post to say "Yes - I am still alive"!! Yours truly - Robin
