Preoccupation

I’ve had all these blog posts practically writing themselves in my head, but not enough hours in the day to transfer from brain to keyboard.

And today, all my energy was focused on my other hobby – my other hobby that actually makes money.

As I mentioned before (though it’s been about a year, so don’t worry if this is news to you), I joined with a direct sales organization that I have the utmost respect for and pride to be part of.

My business has gotten off to a much slower start than I would have ever anticipated, what with the move, the twins’ miscarriage, my unexpected fourth pregnancy, our break in, and Duncan’s birth and death.

But now that Duncan’s due date has come and gone, and I feel a refreshed sense of purpose and desire to do “more,” I decided to host an open house to not only unload some of my inventory, but also (and moreso) to hand out my business card and to get my name out into the community.

So while Seth was at school, I turned my dining room into a sales floor, and spent the rest of the day doing my thing – which left little time for blogging.

But I’ve closed up shop for the night, and decided to at least let you know that I’m not just slacking off from blogging….just letting some other things take center stage for a while.
