While I'm waiting for THE CALL...

Desert Sun on my elbows, Burgundy Satin on my fingers, the smell of paint thinner in the air. I'm a living painter's palette today. Instead of babysitting the phone and waiting for one of the MANY staffing agencies that I have applied to in the last two weeks to call, I have chosen to get some projects completed that have sat around.

So while shelves in the reorganized craft room are drying, I am multi-tasking...talking on the phone, checking email, posting to my new blogger account, and watching tv. I am WOMAN!

WANTED: Established business, that needs a multi-tasking, self-directed, highly organized and creative SUPERWOMAN capable of leaping sleeping children and spouse, faster than the family dog, and more powerful than subliminal ads.

Time, Time, Time...see what's become of me

It's been a year of change and challenges. Husband changing jobs, missing my out-of-state grandchildren, etc. Finally, after months of self-pity, fear, and being a couch potato, it was time to take charge and realign my time, priorities and focus.

So armed with prayer and determination, I started my personal make-over with baby steps. I began with just enjoying being in the moment and spending quality time with the grandkids when they came to visit. Next, I resigned from some of my "all-important" responsibilities and refocused that energy into reaching out to others. I also began going through my house getting rid of clutter and bringing order into my household. At the same time, I found my life becoming the same way...becoming less clutterd and more organized as a result...basically getting in order.

Since our full-time business became a part-time business, I had lots of time on my hands. So...I am now re-entering the job market. Once again, I feel like a wide-eyed high school graduate going into the big, new world or similarly, a mother grappling with the somewhat frightening empty-nest syndrome, having to regain a vision for her individual life.

A new stage in life with new challenges. Life, here I come!
