I know I've been totally MIA for a while now, and I'm sorry for it. I haven't blogged in ages, I hardly ever get on Facebook and my Tweets are far and few between. So what is the deal you ask? Well let me tell you...
Life!! Life can really get in the way, can't it?
We've had a really hard summer, one of our kids has had a rough patch
and it's been hard and all consuming on the whole family. I guess you
can say that we circled up the wagons. Add in a killer summer sale
season and all prepping for the two Country Living Fair I've been barely
getting through the day!
I'd like to say that I have a
time to breath now but that would be a lie. This fall my kids started
middle and high school. WHAT? How the heck did that happen? Yes, we are
still homeschooling. I'm still crazy!! My daughter is taking most of her
course work at a great place called Athenian Academy of Richmond. I am
so thankful for these classes, having a homeschool "school" is a life
saver. As for my son, I am fighting the urge to keep unschooling him. He
wants (needs) more book work and more structure -- I just don't do that
well. Between us, I really am looking forward to him working more
independently -- and soon!
We killed it a Country
Living Fair, I mean killed it and it almost killed me. (See tomorrows
post) I am truly honored to have had record sales at last weeks show. We
sold it all, all the loot for the Ohio show and all the loot for the
Atlanta show. Now we are in full production mode to get enough loot for
the next fair. When I tell you we sold tons of goodies I really mean
it!! For example, we sold 52 small snack bags!! 52!!! We came back with
ONE left!! One?! Wow!!
The Modern June shop is cranking
out the custom tablecloths and Oilcloth Addict is on fire! No rest for
the wicked!! I am so thankful for my merry band of Junies!! More all of
these crazy and wonderful people on Monday!!
worry, I won't be bored anytime soon, I get to start working on my
second book this weekend. I can't say for than that, so don't ask, I
won't tell!! ; p
Happy and exceptionally honored to be a very busy Junie!!
