In this season of my life, I find that by not “having a job”, being a “stay-at-home-mom” or “being a homemaker” is much more of a job than HAVING a job. Nearing 50, as I’ve said, has afforded me the luxury of staying home. Now, when I was presented with this opportunity, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I mean, who wouldn’t want to hang out on the couch eating bon bons all day? (By the way, I have yet to have a bon bon.) I could only begin to imagine the do it yourself projects piling up in my Pinterest boards coming to fruition!!! I could make a craft room, decked out in modular pieces from ikea, complete with ribbon holder and tiny drawers to hold my rhinestones and tubes of paint. Canvases lining the walls just waiting for my artistic brush to flow across them. My ever-supportive BD encouraged me in this vein by purchasing a beautiful desk with glass top to craft to my hearts desire. Took me to estate sales to purchase dainty pieces of furniture to chalk paint with gorgeous designs. I have to say, my furniture painting skills lasted longer than any other of my grandiose schemes. I was even at one time painting pieces and SELLING them! But, alas, duty call and so does EVERYONE else, literally. Currently, my canvases sit blank. The gorgeous craft desk sits laden with bills and paperwork. But my Pinterest boards are still there waiting. I suspect they will be for a while, until I finish running errands, paying bills and picking up just one more thing.
I’d love to hear from you,
Until next time, Cheers,
