Where I'm At...

So. It has taken me awhile to get settled in and used to our new area. Mainly because I'm not doing a lot.

A lot of driving.

A lot of cooking.

A lot of cleaning.

A lot of any. Thing.

I've shifted from having a houseful of people to me and hubby living with our friends out in a camper trailer. First of all, this is about all we can afford at the moment. Our trip here was riddled with financial issues and a very bad experience at the border that caused more financial issues.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. Bear with me.

This past year, I became a grandmother, my son graduated high school and then we moved to another state. I'm still sort of in a state of limbo, I suppose. Not only do I have an 'empty nest', I'm not living in my own place. Me, hubby and the cats are 'camping out', so to speak while we recuperate financially.

I've had all this time thrown into my lap to do with as I please. I don't make dinner every night. Although, I do make it as often as possible. I don't have an entire house to clean, I just have the camper. I don't do loads and loads of laundry. I do maybe three. On Sunday. I don't do all of the grocery shopping.

I no longer have a house to manage. It's just me and hubby and the kitties. So I suppose it's no wonder that I find myself sleeping a lot. I'm bored. I write, I watch TV, I make some jewelry when I can. But there isn't much more for me to do. So I need to add a little more to my life. I'm slowly building up a Scentsy business. But slowly is the key word there. I'll include a link so you can see what it's all about.

Bottom line, if I want to be successful, I have to start changing things a little at a time. Again, don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining, or bragging or begging. It is just a realization that I have come to the past couple days. I'm in a totally unfamiliar stage of my life. A place I didn't think I would be at 43 years of age. It's a little tough to take. But I will adapt. I always do. Sometimes a little too slowly for my own good.

The amount of time it takes you to find your place doesn't matter, as long as you keep working toward the things you want.
