Feeling comfortable

I can’t say how happy I am to finally be able to enjoy my artwork. I love what I do! I’ve been slowly building my doll collection, yes I’m probably going to be one of those women with a bunch of dolls. I did promise myself to not get crazy and go over 10 dolls in the entire house… ok well, I promised my boys.

It’s the beginning of the Christmas season and I can already hear the sound of crunch time. I have a few dolls to make before Christmas and few of my own I want to complete.

A couple of events happened over the last couple months that would’ve left me jaded about 5 years ago, but today is a very different day. I felt validated and self assured that I am on the right path. It’s funny what they say. When you feel adversity or opposition from others, it says a lot more about them than it does about you. I’ve learned that you do choose your future and things may look bleak but it must look that way temporarily in order to achieve what you deserve. 2018 is coming up fast and I am extremely excited! There will be lots of meetings, planning, coordinating, but my goal is worth it!

Let the Christmas songs, sweaters and Santa pictures begin! 🎄

A quick change and away we go…

It seemed as if I was ready to put my plan in motion and move forward, then like the boom of thunder something happens and I’m lead yet again down a very unknown path.  Making alterations and changing schedules has been an ongoing thing.  Sometimes it feels like I’m 2 steps forward yet 1 step back and it can be a tedious cycle.  Although it definitely feels like a Monday, it feels as if this is the moment where I have to adjust my plan to accommodate an even better opportunity.  I’m not sure where it will lead me and I really never want to know, I just know that I am being slightly forced to venture into very uncharted waters.  It’s both exciting and I’m full of anticipation I almost feel like a child with a great book, skipping forward a few pages just to be sure they know the outcome.

After moving and transforming over the last few months, I’ve accepted that for whatever reason, I chose this ever changing and unknown path and that’s ok.  I still love what I do and I’m willing to leave more room for changes when it comes to my decision making.

My vision is becoming more and more tangible with every opportunity that has been presented to me.  I am ever grateful to all my online people that have not only been inspirations but have become dear close friends of mine.

My next goal is to plan a family trip to Disney World…  I’m thinking about traveling there in a large RV and a strong wifi connection.. maybee… hmmmm…

Hope you are all staying warm and safe!

Much love my Sweets!

Life with Supermom: An Appointment Story

I dutifully took my son to his follow-up bone specialist appointment.  He broke his collarbone a month ago and I had to come back to X-ray his clavicle.  My appointment was at 10:25am and I didn’t get home until 1:30pm!

I showed up at my appointment time, “checked-in”, waited for them to call my number, which was 2 hours.  We had the X-ray done, although my little man screamed the whole time because he was scared of the X-ray machine.  We had to wait another hour to see the doctor.  When we finally saw someone, they showed me his X-ray results and it looked like it was healing properly.  It took about 5 minutes for her to tell me what was happening and that they didn’t need to see him again unless he was complaining about pain.

Before we actually saw the doctor, my lil pterodactyl decides to poop.  Lucky for me, there was a washroom nearby, UNLUCKY for me they didn’t have a change table in it.  So, I grabbed a chair and took it into the bathroom and tried to maneuver my awkward diaper change chair.  The diaper was changed successfully and a lady after me thanked me because she needed to change her baby, too.  All in all it worked out for my fellow Momma and me.

Now my beef is that the wait was ridiculous!  The huge waiting room was packed full of people, which I suspect they had double booked us all.  Keeping my 2 year old entertained with my iPad mini was a challenge because all he wanted to do was walk around.

It wasn’t one of my favourite times in my life, but I’m happy to be finished with those appointments.  Whew!

Much love to all! 🙂
