A bit of background… My world went into an insane tailspin on June 22nd 2016. My husband was laid off from his job of ten plus years. No reason given other than they eliminated his position. The kicker? I also work at the same place. About four hours later I get a phone call from my daughter and she tells me that she is pregnant. *deer in headlights* And so, it is the worst day ever and the best day ever.
The weekend prior to THE DAY, my husband and I enjoyed a long weekend in Fredericksburg while my network marketing company was doing their big shindig in Utah. I spent my savings during our trip as I felt like it was not going to be terribly difficult for me to save the funds again and still reach my year-end goal. Boy was I wrong.
I’ve been spending my “play” money on LuLaRoe, Sephora, and clothes for my daughter during her pregnancy. A couple of weeks ago, my daughter told me that she doesn’t need any more clothes right now. I’ve purchased most of her pregnancy clothes on Poshmark with funds from selling clothes from my closet. Poshmark is mostly awesome.
I have completed more bags and listed them on etsy. I am trying to be more diligent and sew in the evenings/weekends. I am also trying to photograph items weekly and list quickly after so that it doesn’t become a HUGE ordeal.
I’m not going to spend an entire blog post addressing the elephant in the room (lack of consecutive posts) and will just skip to writing as if I’ve never been gone. K? Good. I do want to get back on my daily posting schedule. Life is getting back into a groove.
