Out of the Blue

You ever have something happen, right out of the blue? When my step-father was diagnosed with Liver Cancer 10-months ago, I made a difficult decision to leave my cushy corporate gig, and be self-employed as a full-time interior designer. It allowed me freedom to travel to Texas when my mother needed me most, and the opportunity to explore and develop a calling I've had for years.

Recently, with the sudden news of a new house, I've been thinking about getting back into the corporate pool to make purchasing all the lovely things to make Beech Wood Cottage a home. After all, a few design consultations, cross bottle sales, will not cover all of the wish list items, let along the must have items.

Then, out of the blue, I get a call from my corporate boss, asking me to take a temporary management position during a property transition. WHAT!?! Of course, I said! Sure, it's only temporary, but it's the boost I needed to feel comfortable making some of those sorts of decisions.

Might keep me from blogging as often as I'd like - but I'm still here! How was your day?

  3. Congratulations!

    I wish I could have that sort of luck. I've been unemployed since February and spend every day searching for a job. I'm even willing to travel to another city to work, but nothing has materialized yet. Heavy sigh.

  4. Good for you! I thought about you last week. I was in a store and saw these beautiful greenish opaque shallow dishes in rectangular shapes with different sayings imprinted in them....one of them said "color outside the lines"....should've bought it for you for a housewarming! Good luck with the new job AND house!

  5. That is what I call perfect timing. I am happy for you that you will have the security you need right now for all the expenses you will have moving to a new home.
    Best...Victoria

  7. Since I believe, it must be a God-thing! And of course, you having the intelligence to do the "right" thing is a part of it, too! Blogging could help you keep your sanity and you wouldn't need to worry about therapy! Gardening is mine-helps me get ready to return to school in less than 10 days!♥♫
