Getting Off The Sidelines

After several days of feeling sorry for myself I'm happy to report with the help of Dillards, Talbots, Neiman Marcus, FedEx and a debt card I'm back to normal. Well, normal for me, LOL!!

I have decided that life is too short to sit on the sidelines! I'm going to pick myself up, dust off the dirt and move forward!!

I'm be turning 39 in a few weeks, I'm several pounds overweight and I have an ugly scar from my thyriodectomy but that's okay, I kinda like me just the way I am. My scar and pounds tell the story of my life, even if it is the recipe for buttercreme icing! Age and weight are just numbers that are constantly changing but attitude is everything! And mine is in need of an adjustment!

I have opened an Etsy shop, I will be selling handmade cards for special occasions and holidays, I will have the first of many cards to come in my shop by Monday morning. Who knows I may actually sell a few. Wouldn't that be great then I could order more fabulous clothes!!

I want to say a special thank you to my Aunt Kathy for being there for me yesterday (always) and to Hautemamaof2 for taking the time to let me know that I'm not alone!

Love you, Sweetie! You have always been there for me, during the hardest--and best---times of my life! Everyone needs to check out the etsy shop. This girl makes FABULOUS cards, all handmade and a gift in themselves!

Good luck! It is always so hard starting a new endevour but I am sure you will be a success.
And thanks for visiting my blog.

Beautifully said. I think we all often get so caught up in things that we forget to realize how blessed we are. That being said, there is nothing wrong with feeling the way you did. Sometimes I think we are handed disappointment to make us realize how blessed we are.
And of course, Talbots has always served a wonderful purpose in my life! Love your blog!
