Out of work and outta my mind!

Ok, so it has been .....hmmmm...about 2 months since I stopped working at a "real" job. The first month was all about relaxing and enjoying the holidays (yeah right, more like cleaning non-stop) and spending time with my grandma. So then in January I told myself I would be really busy.....(crickets chirping) but it ain't happening. I thought I would enjoy working from home, but right now I am really bored. My day mostly consists of marketing my business to small cities and counties in Texas. I have to get my foot in the door first. Sergio tells me not to give up. I just started. I also do bookkeeping and am thinking of going for my masters in accounting. But that takes money, lots of it. So, for now, I will keep on plugging my company. I guess I did enjoy the "rat race" after all.
So, I decided to get back into my decorating business as a side thing. I was very successful as a designer for Home Interiors back in 2000. So I heard they got bought out by another company Home and Garden Party so I rejoined thru them. I already had some past customers calling me wanting candles, and wanting catalogs, so on and so forth. So I took it as a
sign
.
Lately there's been lots of signs. The bad part is, Sergio's business is slowing TREMENDOUSLY and I am NOT scared.
But you see, being not scared, scares me!! I don't know what to think. I guess I'll go to the temple next week with Sergio. He's gonna have to go with me! I told him so!
So I find myself bored and with this crappy cold I am trying to shake. I can't wait for tomorrow so I can go out shopping with the boys. They need new tennis shoes. Now if you know me, you know I hardly EVER utter these words because I hate shopping!
Oh, also, I am now and official CASA (Guardian Ad Litem) for collin county. I will get my first case soon, very soon. How sad, the judge told us last night that there are currently 300 active cases on the docket with only 170 CASAs. Yikes! In collin county, every child that goes through CPS, gets assigned a CASA. It's not this way in every county though. Well, after the swearing in ceremony, we all got treated to dinner at Rockfish. It was yummy and what an honor to be surrounded with all these selfless people. I really enjoyed learning with them.
So, I know that this boredom will subside as soon as I get busy then I'll be complaining about me being too busy.
At least I have a great husband who does so much for me and believes in me. I couldn't have made it without him.
He brought me breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed for the past few days since I was sick. But he does this even when I am NOT sick. He's sick now too :( but out working until the wee hours of the morn'.
Well, I don't have any spiffy pics to post this time. Just my thoughts. I really want to buy one of those Cricut machines...
