Turn Left

 Like that Doctor Who episode, you make decisions all the time, never knowing what the final outcome will. Sometimes you don't even realize you're making a decision or what impact it will have. I decided to start tax school but I think the real decision was started back in 2011 when I took 3 really short contract positions in a row, nothing was the same after that. Although honestly I didn't really like any of those jobs. And I really hated working contract positions, it's like always being on a first date. I'm cutting ties and going to tax school (I went last year but didn't finish since I got what was supposed to be a long-term contract and actually lasted 6 weeks) so I already know I like it and am good at it. It feels like such a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It's only a couple of blocks away so I can walk instead of an hour-long commute.

This past year I also got back into knitting as I posted a few times. It has been like therapy for me. I'm still sculpting and smooshing the clay but knitting is my hobby for relaxing, when I'm watching TV or just waiting in the doctor's office. I've come to the conclusion I need to do what works best for me. Even if means taking a job my husband feels isn't "good" enough for me, just taking this a little slower and stop stressing about the little stuff.

I also went to the doctor this week, it seems I have really bad allergies to something but god knows what. Since I have had issues with my sinuses for years and no real sense of smell in years, I assume this isn't new but this month it got really bad and I couldn't breathe and nothing seemed to work.

I know this post is different from most but I also decided to change my slant on my blog. Just showing off my work isn't working for me or it seems anyone else. Actually I find it boring too. So over the next few months, I'll be making a few changes but nothing too major.


  1. Hey, I bought your witch! I liked it and the little gargoyle that came with it so much that I went looking for your site to see what else you have! I intend to buy more :) Hang in there. You do good work.

  2. Thanks! I don't plan to stop anything, just expand a little and change my blogging style a little. :-)
