♥ A New Beginning ♥
So I started back to school last year. I can't believe I decided to go back, but I'm debating between business management and accounting. Just signed up for second semester of accounting which starts next Monday. I thought the first one might kill me off, but I'm still here. I really want to get into doing personal or small business taxes. At least this week. :) I've been wanting to change jobs too. Yes, I work full-time and have an etsy shop, plus now school! I've been at this job for 17 years and I'm afraid we're about to be merged into another group (those who "make the cut" and they don't fire first). So I took the plunge and applied for a job with them directly (hoping for a few quarters of extra pay) and got it...along with the tiny (and I do mean tiny) pay increase. But as Mr. Prim Rose Hill says, "when you're in war, sometimes you have to join the enemy or be taken out". That describes this work environment to a T. But I'm trying to make the best of it. I believe it's just a step up to a better position, whether in this office or out. God's plan is in the works, not mine, and I need to trust Him and keep believing.
I still have my Etsy shop and have been keeping with it quite well. I just wish I had more time to make all the items I have planned! I always sell quite a few of my beaded tea infusers in December so I was madly making them before Thanksgiving. LOL. I really enjoy making them so you know it was such a hardship. ;)
I am truly going to make a better effort at blogging this year and keeping up with others too. No, really, I am!
Thank you to the readers who keep checking back and those who emailed me!
Keep on crafting!
