trying to get something done...

So I have been trying to get stuff done but it hasn't been working so well. I was already dealing with being tired all the time and then having Vertigo, I am on a motion sickness medication which causes drowsiness....just what I need!! No, not really!

Anyways, I am trying to not think about the dizziness and get something done. As many of you know, I am an Art Teacher as well as working at Down Memory Lane. I am currently applying for Art positions for next year and am totally excited to hear back from schools. My application was already due in Elmwood, WI and I still have a couple to send out to Cornell, Independence, and Gilman. I have my fingers crossed because it certainly is time for a teaching job!!

Also, I am get anxious about selling our house. We were doing so well with getting it all ready to put on the market and then I got sick. Now two houses down the street have sold and makes me want to get that For Sale sign in the yard RIGHT NOW!!! We also have to wait to see if I get a teaching job since that would most likely force us to move somewhere other than Eau Claire so we can't sell too soon but I think now is the time with the first time homebuyers deal out there right now.

I am also super excited about tomorrow as I am getting my hair cut. A new hairstyle is somewhat exciting although I am a bit scared. I will have to update tomorrow when I get home!

Gotta get to bed...feeling drowsy!

sorry for not blogging...

I have to appologize to all of you...I have not updated in awhile because I have been struggling with ear infections and now vertigo. If you have ever had it you will understand what I am saying as you feel dizzy most of the day. It does come and go but for the most part I have to be very careful with what I am doing so I don't get over dizzy. It is not just a little light headed feeling, it has the sensation of the ENTIRE room spinning very quickly. It is no fun and I have been wanting to work on things in our house and craft room so much lately but this has been holding me back. I even got ahold of the new LIFE IS A BEACH cricut cartridge yesterday as Down Memory Lane got ALL of the cricut cartridges in a couple days ago. They are about ready to be rented out!!! Go to the store to find out more about renting the oh so many cricut cartridges and of course, if you can't get by with just renting it for a day or two, certainly just BUY IT!!! I hope to be back on here soon with some fun things that I have created...fingers crossed!!!
