Stressful Month

Stressful Month

January is always a very important month for me. Its where I shake off the feast mentality from the last few months and start getting back in shape. My energy also starts to come back and I start to feel a bit better than usual. But, also our finances are recovering from the holiday season and I know that taxes are just around the corner. This is always hard for an independent. But, primarily this year my focus has been on getting my affairs in order since the move. I hadn’t got my insurance changed over and I just bought a new car. That type of thing. There was a lot of talking on the phone.

Also, my husband has been studying for this massive test for work. Its called the Comp Tia Security+ test or something very close to that. He finally managed to pass it though so we’re on the other side of that now. Whew! While this was going on I really threw myself into “busy” work like rolling paper beads and slamming out earrings by the dozens.

I feel like I can breathe again now that the cars are in order and the test is passed. I say this and say this. I’d like to set up a store on my website to sell my art. Maybe I will do this. Maybe this plan will spiral away like a leaf on the wind as the rest of life falls into place. I had a massive cheat day (the only one this month) from diet and I feel like bag of bracelets. I have a bead class in a half hour and I haven’t had enough sleep and its probably the most complicated pattern I’ve ever attempted. Am I up for this? We’ll see.
