Where Are The Words?

I would say I feel un-inspired lately, but as I think of my life, that is not it.

I have written quite a few post as I have moved through the days of the past month or so - and great ones at that, unfortunately it was on the chalk board in my head and never made it to paper or the keyboard.

For the first time in my adult life, I am not working outside the home. The change in structure offers an opportunity. I am happy to say that I have yet to be bored. But how did I do everything and work outside the home?

I have been working on reinventing my career (and me too). My goal was to switch to a Personal Chef or Family Cook. I have spoken with the Health Department, the IRS, the state registration office, etc. And now I am at a hurdle. Insurance. My business inusrance company does not offer coverage for this "specialized" area. So I am waiting to hear back from another agent.

Meanwhile, I have filled in helping a caterer. Been home for a few sick days of one kid. Have cleaned some windows. Sold a second commercial freezer (Yes!!). Cleaned more. Networked. Almost caught up on last seasons Greys Anatomy (Netflix is wonderful). Have enjoyed lunch with friends, after three years of not being able to. Tried a few new recipes (my favorite). Have cooked through the excess of food in freezers and have successfully not gained weight. Have grumbled about the differences of clean of those in the home. Volunteered for Demolition D's Band Boosters - Will, The Man, and I make a great team for running a consession stand. Haven't seen the first game, but have been able to sneak a peak at the band a couple times.

I found a spot - somewhat secluded to make mine. With six of us in the house, I have realized that is one of the challenges, having your own spot to call your own. To escape too. I found this spot outside. Even the birds don't notice me there.

This all said, and much still not, life is good and abundant. And I hope to journal more of it. And this is the start.

So until next week . . . have a great weekend. Make some time for fun and rest. Enjoy it.

P.S.Watch for the new Dove commercial - sung to the tune of "do your ears hang low." I thought it was refreshing and cute and light.

I hope you have a good weekend, too.

I don't see many commercials; I don't watch much TV, but maybe I can find that one on the 'net.

I saw the Dove commercial earlier this week. I've been humming Do Your Ears Hang Low ever since!

Once you have had your own business, the desire is still inside your heart. Keep going after your dream even if it is in a different form.

It is nice to read that you are doing good and even cleaning a few windows.

Blessings to you,

[it is bull riding, by the way Professional Bull Riding] was a great time! and you're right.. we were quite emotional. the anthem followed a lovely tribute to the troops, so being a military family.. it was very moving. then follow that with her inspired anthem.. OMG chills!! i do recommend going to an event sometime.. they really do know how to put on a show!! so much fun! :D
