Yes, this has been me, more than once this month!
The usual summer hectic-ness has kept me away from the computer for most of June. I have to say that June is a month every year that really leaves me feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. Not being able to work on my business very much during daylight hours makes me very grouchy! (and sleep deprived!)
What’s been going on here? Here are a few of the highlights-
I am continuing to work on my shop/storage space. Kids play area and most of my photo area are done, all listed and unlisted inventory storage is done. Still working on clearing out my Amazon/Shipping Area, mostly by just getting items shipped that have been sitting around.
Had my son’s 7th birthday party, spent a week driving him back and forth to Pioneer School, and 2 days for him to attend a cooking and sewing class offered by our local high school.
My daughter also had gymnastics one afternoon a week. We live so far away from everything that just signing up for one activity takes pretty much a whole day.
Celebrated our 10th Wedding anniversary and spent my son’s birthday and our anniversary with medical testing for me. Apparently turning 38 makes everything start to fall apart!
At my physical I had a possible cancer scare and the Dr. found a heart murmur he hadn’t heard before. My brother was my age when they found his heart murmur, which resulted in open heart surgery to close a quarter size hole in his heart. Thankfully, the mass they found isn’t cancer! but may result in surgery sometime down the road. Still awaiting the official heart testing results, but unoffically it appears to be a murmur that shouldn’t cause any problems long term. Praise be to God!
Today we finished up speech/hearing testing for my daughter and she is going to qualify for some speech therapy, which means driving to town 2x a week for the rest of July and starting again in Mid-August, plus preschool 2 x a week. It’s going to be busy, but somehow we will manage!
I’m embarking on my 5th month of working on losing weight. I got really fed up and stalled in my weight loss with Weight Watchers (I lost about 20 pounds) and started a new plan called Trim Healthy Mama a few months ago. I am happy to report that I am now down 45 pounds and have about 30 more to go! I really put on a lot of weight when we were dealing with my hubby’s TBI diagnosis and I am happy to be getting back on the right track. And I am completely off of sugar and soda! (Which might also be why I am grouchy and sleep deprived!)
July should slow down some towards the end of the month (swimming lessons and bible school) and hopefully I can really get cranking on my Amazon inventory. I hope to have all of my Halloween and most of my Christmas inventory packed and ready to go in in August. I have a lot to do and it’s really hot in my shop right now!
I have another unhaul post in the works right now and I plan on getting it posted sometime this week. Sales are finally picking up for me and I hope they are for you too!
