This day May 16th 2008 finds me preparing for a new adventure...again : )
I have not posted since December 6th, 2007. I went to Oklahoma, saw, did not conquer and came back to Los Angeles to recuperate. I am preparing to "Leave On A Jet Plane" May 22nd and fly to Honolulu Hawaii for some job interviews. Please all of you; pray that I am hired so I can stay on the island of Oahu and continue my life adventurously : )
Last year in July 27th I flew to Oahu and was offered 2 jobs and chose to come back to the mainland. My life is so totally free now I can, without any guilt, accept a job and stay on Oahu. My daughters, all 3, are living productive independent lives and Mama is not needed like previously : ) I am truly inspired by their independence!!!
I no longer need a doctor's care and my spine and back are pretty well healed. It has been a bit over 7 months since having the spine surgery and my neurologist said I am in the 1% who will not require any more surgeries. I am sure much of it had to do with the prayers you ladies so unselfishly sent my way!!!
I will be able to post photographs as I am in Honolulu so I will keep you up to date on this my
New Adventure : )
My humble intentions are:
#1 get a job
#2 be a merchant on this blog
#3 have nice embellishments (vintage and new) for all of you crafter's, artist's and scrap bookers that come to this simple blog
#4 give credit to Phyllis from Shabby In The City for the inspiration to sell. She has the most wonderful Flea Market Friday's on her blog. I wanted to have a Market too : ) So, after expressing my desire to her she said I was required to pay her $1,000,000.00 in Confederate Paper money for the idea : )
Anyone know where I can find some? : )
