Wow, that is about all I can say. Time is flying past me that I can honestly say that it feels like I posted here last week. In reality though it has been two, possibly over if I schedule this one to come out later.
I must admit I thought that I would have more time for this during work but juggling my schedule has been incredibly difficult. It has been a test of my skills with handling change, and focusing on priority in my life. Honestly I wouldn’t give this up for the world even with the hassle it can create.
Something many people have a hard time understanding when they meet me is that I actually have a disability. One that is so severe that I was told at 16 I would never be able to work. It is hard for people to understand because it is not a physical disability.
I have spend many years working on overcoming my own handicaps. Many social things that come naturally to others is like trying to walk through quicksand for me. I have forced myself in social situations, slowly grown used to different situations, and pushed my limits to the point where I can now work a part time seasonal job. Throwing it in the face of every person who told me that I would never be able to work.
Many mothers love staying home with their children, and they might think down on me for choosing to go to work when I could stay home and do all that summer fun stuff that they do with their kids. But this has nothing to do, yet everything to do with being a good mother. I work for me, but I also work to prove to my daughter just because someone told you that you would never be able to do something doesn’t mean that they are right.
Sure it may not be a full time job, it may not make a lot of money, but it is rewarding in so many other ways that many people will never realize.
This blog is not often that personal. I like to keep my privacy. The reason I am putting this out here is because I feel you have the right to know why this blog has slowed down. I am still working on craft projects, still doodling pattern ideas, and still taking lots of photos and drawing obsessively, but with work updating my blog has taken a back seat.
October things will most likely go back to normal because I like to keep myself busy, but until then updates will be sporadic.
