It’s a hard knock life for Audrey.

Too long not blogging.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE that I have not put anything on my blog for almost a year.

Being at a job that where I was NOT appreciated WORE ME OUT! I would get home and be exhausted, uninspired.
Working in the Optical industry for years was wonderful. Over so many years of being in the business,I am just spent.
I am going to be filling in at boutiques in the city. That is something that I will love doing.

Joe is SO WONDERFUL! He said that I have been there to support him with getting his business back up and contributed so much over the years. He said now it is MY TIME to follow MY PASSION. Love him for that.

I am now helping Joe out with his writing business AND I am working on my own website. It will include jewelry and other things that I create. Hoping to have that up and running by next year.

I don’t think I will be putting anything on Etsy. I LOVE ETSY! However, I think it is over saturated and my things may get lost in it all.
I am not 100% on not having an Etsy page ,though. I am sure once everything is ready to be up and running I will make up my mind.

After vacation I am going to be writing ideas down on things I want to make. I am SO INSPIRED! The ideas are just flowing.

Can’t wait for what great things await me in this new chapter of my life. :)

They delayed the ceremony, then came the downpour. We were all drenched!  Students were fine inside the school.

This plant was given to me by my niece Jenny. She decorated a small pot and the plant was small at the time. Eve brought it with her when she came to help take care of me after my heart attack in 2004.
This plant has made it back. Almost died at one point. Came back. Olive literally ate almost every branch on it when we lived in Eagleville. I put it outside to help it. We moved here in the city in August. I put it up at the top of the bookshelf. The cats don’t bother it. Now is is THRIVING!
I can’t believe that I have a 6 year old plant. :)

Broken tooth

I was at lunch today when I felt something rough. It was my filling on the top of my tooth. The inside of my tooth near my tongue broke.
Fortunately I was able to leave work and get an appointment with my dentist who is in the same area where Joe works.

I was having a problem with sensitivity to this tooth for a couple of years. When the Dr looked at it and said there was nothing wrong I thought he was brushing me off. Now I understand that it was nothing he could see. I was having problem with sensitivity because my tooth was breaking underneath the filling.

I could have either had a filling done to fill in and possibly have a problem in the future, or have a crown put on. I opted for the crown. I am walking around with a temporary crown for now. going back in 3 weeks to have the permanent put on.
A small fortune later. All I have to say is thank goodness for dental insurance and a flex spend account! Thanks Apple INC!

Goofy me!

Goofy me!
