Week 2 of Unemployment...

The living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom are clean! I'm catching up on laundry, I'm doing maintenance on these rooms daily in an effort to keep them clean. It's time to tackle the most cluttered room in my house, the one I'm embarrassed of, the one I don't want anyone to see. Well in the interest of being honest I am going to show you this room. Consider these "before" pictures and I hope to get some after shots SOON!

This is the spare bedroom, where I keep all my clothes and my office is here. As you can see working or relaxing in here is impossible - but not for long.

Now not tackling this all in one day but doing a bit at a time until I've cleared it out. I will post after pictures. This room is where stuff goes to die, and it's time to get rid of a ton of that stuff. :)

Strange Dreams...

I had the oddest dream last night. I was older and Pete was not there and I was sad about it. In my dream I was marrying a much older man, someone who was very wealthy and I was terrified because he was announcing our engagement to his children who were both older than me and not likely to take the news very well.

Just as he was starting to introduce me to them the doorbell rang and I sat bolt upright in bed. I'm still not sure if the doorbell was in my dream or my actual doorbell? The dogs didn't bark which makes me think it was just part of the bizarre dream.

Why is it when I remember my dreams it's because I found them so disturbing?

Unemployment, Sweet Unemployment...

So I didn't have to make the choice to walk away from the job that was so bad for me. I got laid off and now I can collect unemployment while I figure out my next steps! I'm thrilled to be unemployed! LOL

I have already met with 2 new clients who need help with Website Design and Social Media Marketing, and one hired me for 10 hours a month, the other we need to finalize details. The restaurant I worked at for 2 years is opening up again very soon and I will be doing her web and social media marketing as well as waiting tables occasionally, life is good.

It's coming together, the reinvention is underway!

Reinventing myself once again...

Time for a change. Job clearly didn't happen. Stuck in a bad place for me and it's time to get unstuck.

So here goes nothing - I'm reviving my Design Firm - graphic design, websites, shopping carts, social media marketing, blogs, and more!

And come September I plan to be enrolled in a Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program that will allow me to become certified to teach in New York State - this will be paid for courtesy of the VA thanks to my husband's 100% disabled status.

I will take whatever shifts I can from the restaurant, and scrounge for business however possible for my design firm. I will no longer be selling advertising - now to get up my nerve to make the jump.
