I Quit My Day Job
After being there for 2 years, i made the decision to leave. I wasn't happy at this job, but i met wonderful women there. It was hard to leave, let me tell you. I am starting a new job tomorrow, one that is very exciting but only part-time. It's a great job counselling women, and something i've been wanting to do. I do hope that i can find other work soon, though, so that i can meet my financial needs and my sanity.
Until i do, i'll need to be busy at home so that i don't become a couch potato. One of the first things we did for 2006 was cancel our cable - something that was a hard decision to make, but i'm hoping i'll be more productive without it. I hope to become more crafty and better at sewing and creating. I also hope to read more again, and possibly exercise. Unfortunately, all of these need money so i'll have to balance my chequebook each month!
One thing i want to be working on more is using old clothes and reconstructing them - i love this! One of my first projects was a scarf i made my honey from sweaters i felted and an old concert tee. Not bad, but i've got a long way to go. Good thing this month's Tie One On apron is recreating an apron from some old clothing item. I'm working on a dress that i bought in India. I love the fabric but hated the dress.
And since my honey has been so supportive about my job crisis, i'm making him play model here....
