Sometimes Life is Messy

My sweet hubby is very OCD about everything being clean, in order and in it's place.  Me I'm the creative half of this marriage, I'm not a slob, but I won't fret over something being out of place.  And as I am always telling him, Life is Messy!

I've been telling myself that the last 2 weeks.  Two weeks ago we had the back half of our house torn-up ripping up old flooring and installing new floors, great guys and they did a fabulous job.  But... there was dust everywhere, and my fault for not putting stuff away, but a few crafty projects were ruined with a layer of dust - life is messy. 

That same week I had my quarterly meeting at work, which for some reason always goes badly on my end.  I think I'm a nice person and can be pretty darn funny, but for some reason a person in power (not my boss BTW) where I work basically hates my guts and for some reason needs to empower himself at each quarterly meeting by screaming at me and belittling me.  I usually drive home In tears, this time it was so bad I was just basically in shock - life is messy.

I love my Etsy shop and the creative outlet, but as I am nearing my second anniversary of my little shop I have to sit back and reevaluate it, is it worth my time and the money I have put into it?  At this point I'm not sure what I'm going to do, I've made such great Etsy friends I'd hate to let them go.  But should I continue with a "business" that hasn't grown to what I had hoped - life is messy.

Life is messy but... I have a wonderful husband, a great family & pets, good friends, I know that I am better person because I would never be cruel to someone on purpose and now I have really pretty new floors!

  1. So sorry about your boss... I understand about crying on the way home from work it stinks! I am sure you know in your heart what you must do about your job and your etsy shop. Your jewelry is beautiful but if it is taking too much time and not enough profit maybe it is time to look at what can change...I bet your floors look great! Life is messy!!
