life can be exhausting, sometimes.

life is busy. i mean really BUSY for me lately. news on the daily about my mom, changes in treatments-living arrangements-surgeries can really do a number on my stress level. on top of hearing all this long distance, i am trying to coordinate a major move so i don't have to hear of it long distance anymore. it is wiping me out, man! i can't seem to get enough sleep, and i feel as though my thyroid issues are becoming unmanageable. again. time for more blood work, huh?

does this get me down? nah. i am a 'live through this' now, fall to pieces later kinda gal. i still have work, the girls, appointments and NFB to juggle. if i could fast forward to the middle to the end of december i would--this would all be a fading memory and we will be settling in for a mild california winter. not bad, not bad at all :) i feel really bad for people who jam-pack their and their kids schedules with lessons for this, practice for that, school this and that...even now when things seem hectic i still get to take time to stop and smell the roses with the family. family is more important than anything right now, friends included.

on the good tip, i made what has got to be the cutest little toddler item EVER so far, listed today: a little baby version of my head scarf. i don't care if it ever sells--it is leeetle...and cute...and leeetle. i love little baby things....i can look at this every freaking day and it makes me so very happy :)

mmmm i love it when the weather changes...even this little bitty taste of autumn has me drooling for more. i have listed warm cottony baby hats to officially kick off my season lol. got out and listed an old day of the dead skull, and i finished an older one i had started over the summer. i am keeping one eye on the NOW and one on the upcoming seasons of fall and winter. even though we will be relocating back down to calfornia before xmas, i am going to try and make it a stream-lined and smooth move for my sanity's sake and those around me LOL. i want to continue listing and making my best sellers and hit up my wholesale contacts a couple more times where needed.

i started a new wordpress blog (for a yet undisclosed subject back in sac!) and realized that will be such a fun and informative subject, i *almost* wish we were back already. with several of my long-time best friends there waiting and happy to have us back i am excited to go ahead and get going NOW. although for the great friends i have made here, it is bittersweet-but i know never to say goodbye, just aloha :) i will see them again and will talk with them every day via the 'nets just like usual.

things are looking up and we are soaking in portland as much as possible before we go. places and people we see are taking on a much more special meaning all of a sudden. time is short, people are precious and memories are important: even more so now.
