When it rains, it pours!

I'm afraid to say that last night our main computer crashed, and this morning my husband's truck broke down on the way to work. Combine that with the studded tires we (thankfully) bought for me to be able to get around in our car, it's going to be one crazy holiday for us. As in crazy-broke. The adversity finally spurred me into talking with the local art center that has a gift shop, and a Christmas gift exhibit going on right now. I hope to make up some gift bags to take in to see if they'd be interested in selling them. I also hope to get my Etsy shop up and running again. I'm trying to decide if I should start a new one (I only had 4 sales at the old one), or keep and change the old one. I was in Michigan at the time, so all the data is wrong.

Anyway, it's just a patch we got to get through... one of many, past, and I'm sure present. The thought of having to go back to work in the 24/7/365 medical field with 2 kids not quite old enough to take care of themselves motivates me to do what we got to do to keep afloat, and try to keep me home with them.

But I may not be able to blog as much, as the old lap-top I'm now using is flaky, and I'll now be sharing it with 2 tween boys and my husband when they're home.

Oh, and did I mention that it's snowing heavily right now, and the roads are a total mess?! Yee haw!!! Hey, wish me luck!!!

Sorry about all the things going wrong at once. It's been a rough year for me too. I wish you the best and many sales with Etsy...and that all the little things get sorted out soon!

Snow is nice....but be safe!

Oh no, sorry to hear about all the bad luck. Good luck with the Etsy store ... I'm sure it's the kind of thing where it might take a little time to take off, but once it does, you might have a lot of success with it!
