The inner thoughts of a normal mom, with abnormalities

Spinning Again

As the holidays get closer I have started to sit at my spinning wheel again. It’s really the only thing I can think to do for people for gifts. Not to mention it helps to keep my Etsy store stocked. Soon I will have enough to actually start making homemade gifts. I just need to come up with a game plan and a list of things that I am going to make.

I have plenty of time, it’s just getting focused and finding the energy to get everything done. Also coming up with unique presents would be best. And there really isn’t a lot of things I can crochet for the 5 year old that would work. Other than a stuffed animal, which would be a whole other project since I have never done one before.

The other problem is that the closer we get to the end of the year, the closer we get to the baby coming. If he doesn’t decide to come before then. Hopefully he’ll stay put until the new year at least gets here. After that he’s free to come out at any time, but babies don’t really follow any normal schedule.

Gah. Who’s idea was this anyway? lol

 

Business Plans

I have been pretending to start up a business for the last few years. To try and get some writing jobs, or some design jobs. Truth of the matter is, I don’t have the energy that is needed to put in the time. Or I just can’t get over my inability to get myself off the couch and get started on anything that isn’t a nap. I am not sure if it’s depression or just the pregnancy but something isn’t quite where it is supposed to be.

It is getting closer to the time where we really need to be thinking about the things that we need to get before the baby comes, and we just don’t have the money for it. Worse than that, is that I haven’t been able to make money since I stopped working in April. Disability doesn’t give enough to live off of alone, and It’s really important that I can start to get some money rolling in.

I am hoping that I will be able to push myself to get a few more writing jobs under my belt, but I also want to be able to push the things in my Etsy store a bit harder. Which means I am going to have to take a closer look at what I am making to see what I can do to make it better. Perhaps I will need to spend actual time designing things as well. Not just looking at my pretty diplomas.

Speaking of designing things, I am hoping that this site will actually start to look a bit different as the weeks go by. I have to remind myself to practice coping but I don’t think it will be too much of an issue to go through and design my own WordPress theme. I mean I have done it a few times before, just a matter of sitting down and actually practising for a change. The Chromebook allows me to do all the coding, I just have to get the pictures set up. Which with the fall colours finally out, shouldn’t be too much of an issue. I have this wonderful camera that I love to use and just don’t because using it means going outside, and I just don’t do that. Gotta find a way during the week when I am alone to get out there.
