Busy And A Blog Hold

Hey all! Guess what? I GOT A JOB!!! I am so, so excited! I start on Monday. I will be doing medical billing and accounts receivable at a large local skilled nursing facility/rehabilitation center. The company also has independent and assisted living houses. I am sure I will be very busy at work and I can hardly wait.

I went on a major shopping trip today, using money that I’ve saved up over the last several months to buy clothes for my new job. I also bought some shorts and capris and am ecstatically happy to report that the shorts and capris I bought today are SIX SIZES SMALLER than ones I bought at the beginning of last summer!!!! I was happy dancing all through the mall, let me tell ya!!

On to the blog hold- between working full time and going to school 3 nights a week I will have little to no time to create. I also just don’t seem to have any desire to make things at all anymore and it makes me sad. I’ve been toying with the idea of selling all my quilting stuff, it’s gotten that bad. I do have one swap item (and I know I am late sending, I am sorry about that and plan to mail it by Friday) that I will be completing and after that I have no idea when I will be sewing again.

This is supposed to be a quilting blog and since I’m basically not quilting anymore I feel like it’s kinda pointless to continue writing this blog. I don’t plan to delete this blog, and if I have anything to show you I will certainly post again. I will also see some of you on Flickr and Facebook!

Hugs to all and thank you for being there for me with your thoughts and prayers!


  1. Congratulations on your new job and new dress size!! We all change and evolve. I'm sure you will find a way to express yourself creatively again. Maybe it won't be quilting, but whatever it is--enjoy!

  4. Congratulations on the new job and on the SIX SIZES!!!!! That is awesome.
