A crazy weekend! New earrings coming!

It was a crazy weekend. I never even made a post, that's how CRAY-ZEE it was. Going here. Going there. Picking up this. Dropping them off. Taking this to her. Showing that to him. Making sure they weren't out of these. And so on. It was crazy, I tell ya, just crazy. (but in a good way)

For the last several months our life has been in serious ups and downs, not knowing what we're doing from one minute to the next.
Thankfully this week we've had some things happen and we feel like we're a little bit more stable. For a long time I have been carrying the weight of the house, and let me tell you, it's a lot of stress for one gal. It made me stay up many nights, worrying about the bills and keeping it all straight. Not to mention making sure that my work was on schedule and did I order that charm for her and who wanted Aquamarine instead of Tanzanite? ::sigh:: It was these sorts of things added to my load that caused me to have chicken-with-your-head-cut-off-syndrome. Yup. I had that. It's a horrible plite, I tell ya. Horrible. Walking around without a head. Phew. Messy stuff folks.

I'll let you in on all the news in the coming days but for now I just want to say that I'm feeling much better about life and where we are. You know what I'm saying? Have you ever felt lost in the middle of it all? I have. Not a fun place to be. While my work is sooo enjoyable and my customers (you) are delightful, I still have this whole other life that has to be tended to.... family, friends, house, laundry... I'm glad things are looking up.

This Saturday is Jeff's birthday. He turns 41. I am not sure how he feels about this, but he wasn't so happy about it last year, turning the big 4-0. lol He was feeling old but I think that this year hasn't been too bad. :) After all, he's not old, and I think he's more handsome now than the day I married him.

He needs a cupcake! That will make him feel younger, because only young people eat cupcakes.

You all have a great day. I have some more earrings coming up and they're just beauties.

I know just how you feel! We are renovating, planning a wedding and I'm finishing my 7th year of university notwithstanding a close family death :( Money appears to make the world go around and 2009 has been a shocker for us. Thankful there is some sunshine on the other side which I am starting to see! To have really great high times, you have to have the lows to make you appreciate just how good life can get. Stay strong, you'll get there :)
