In this case, that word…hiatus, does not mean rest. It means – self imposed break from writing due to the extreme situations in all areas of my life. Careers, kids, health…all have been tested, and compromised over the past 6 weeks. I am coming back. But there has been wreckage, and I am still cleaning it up. I will give you a peek. Let’s start with careers…the construction business has been draining the life out of my husband, bleeding him, if you will. The upside to that is that his creative juices are flowing….AGAIN. He is building beautiful farm tables that the average American family can afford. Really, I think its brilliant. A piece of furniture in your home made by an artisan, each table numbered, and original. The Lord has really planted a seed in him, the desire to make something with his hands, to CREATE. His website is under construction( thanks to a super genius friend). I will let you know when the site for RELIC SALVAGE CO. com is up and running.
My so called career ?? STALLED. I have one party in April, and I am so greatful for that. I am dissappointed in the fact that so many women DESPISE home parties. Its a choice to work, and still be with my kids, that’s all. So when you are thinking about updating your jewelry wardrobe for Spring, think about Lia Sophia, and think about…ME.
We all had the flu, except Thomas. Adam had strep throat, and the flu at the same time. It was rough. Thought we would never leave the house again. Thought I would never fix my hair, or wear makeup again. I was down for about 10 days. Big doctor bills. We made it through that, just to get another ear surgery for Isaiah, one tube in, adnoids out. Sounded simple, took 20 minutes, but they found a problem in the other ear. That means ANOTHER surgery, longer, more complicated….can you say FRUSTRATED ? I want my baby boy to have some peace. Hell, I want some peace, too. The kind that passes all MY OWN understanding.
We are on the upswing. I promise. My house is still a wreck, but the blinds are open. And thats a step forward. There is more to say, but I will save it for another day.
