A very wise and talented man once said "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". I couldn't agree more! Since the last entry, I've had a serious case of double pneumonia that knocked me out of commission for the better part of 2 months, we've discovered that my eldest daughter has chronic migraines and hypoglycemia, and on Easter Sunday we (quite unexpectedly) had to put our much-adored miniature schnauzer, Gracie, to sleep. This has NOT been a good 2010 for our family so far. But I've always had the feeling that bad things happen in threes, so I think we should be good for a while, right? Right?! Why'd it get so quiet in here?
I have decided to return to school and pursue a degree in nursing, but no worries - I definitely will still be making beads. I love, love, LOVE making beads, but with this economy... Blah, blah, blah, how many times have you heard THAT expression recently?! Seriously though, how on Earth would I pay for college if I no longer made beads? Yeesh!! I'm showing my age here, but the last time I was enrolled, colleges still used the quarter system and my tuition and fees for a full load was about $700, not including books. Now? It makes me a little green around the gills to think about the checks I have to write to the Registrar's Office. Ouch!
But back to the beads, I'm going to be putting some new things up very soon. Like maybe, tomorrow?
