Another blogspot

I am creating a new blog -- solely about my craft projects I have been doing lately. And this one will be just updating my daily life thing....

Go check out my newest craft project! The mirrors-- I think I will do lots more of glass frosting. :-)

She likes it too!

We were kinda bored this morning so I wanted to play with my new "toy" and Abby wanted to watch. Sami was taking a nap. I made a butterfly, an owl and realized I could even cut out a paper tiara! Abby became SOOOOOO excited so I tried to figure out the size for a tiara. This thing can cut anywhere from half an inch to 24 inches!
Anyway, I gave her stickers and markers to decorate her tiara.

Note her choice of stickers-- I haven't had the heart to tell her what the stickers say! :-)

Is Christmas over yet?

I was so ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving began!
When Thanksgiving was over, we dragged everything out, decorated the house, put up the tree, decked the halls! Stapled lights outside. Baked tons of cookies.

Now... I'm so ready for Christmas to be OVER! I'm done. I'm burnt. Feels like MONTHS until Christmas is finally here. I.AM.TIRED.OF.RED.AND.GREEN.

Maybe next year, I should not put Christmas stuff up until maybe a week before Christmas....

Testing something

Did I do this right?

A new beginning is approaching!

You'll see more of me in upcoming few weeks!!!

Sadly, I will be out of a job after January 29. I am still exploring my possible options. I may need to take an afternoon/evening job somewhere. Maybe I can try to earn some money from home (crafts? Babysitting? dog walking?)

I am anxious but also a little bit excited to see what's in the store for me.

I just watched "Julie & Julia" last night and I really liked it very much. I can identify myself like Julie Powell. A bit lost. But I ain't gonna cook everyday like she did! Sheesh... I'm a good cook but not EVERY SINGLE DAY! And over 500 recipes? No thanks.

But I can post something everyday... That's easy. I hope... Then I realize, I have kids... hmmmm.

Ok, I gotta go and do some more internet surfing.

Love you guys.

Sorry if I don't seem to be blogging anymore! I've been wanting to write everyday, but life goes on, and I've been doing quite some soul-searching lately about what is my passion, what do I really want to do.

As some of you know by now, my job is in limbo right now. Nearly 3 years ago, I was hired by my school to be one-on-one instructor for a student with special needs. Then three weeks ago, an incident happened and the principal did an emergency expulsion, which basically means he is expelled but he can come back if the doctor/psychologists says he is safe to do so.

So, for the last 3 weeks, I'm just doing some odd and ends, catching up on some big time-consuming projects that nobody seems to have time to do for. I do miss teaching this boy, one-on-one, because it does keep me busy (and interesting).

I'm also anxious and nervous because I do not know if I will still have my job in the near future. I wish I knew the future so I can prepare for it accordingly. On the same hand, I do not want to know when because I want to enjoy what I have NOW. Should I start feeling around for possible jobs? Refresh my resume? Take a long look at our finances to see if Stay-at-home-mom is even possible?

I've been diverting my anxious-ness by doing research online on a new hobby, probably will start in 2010. I really want to start making greeting cards, maybe vinyl shirts, aprons, whatever.

Ha... instead of crying over spilled milk, I'll let the milk sour up, and I will try to sculpt the lumps into something interesting.

Thank you for lending a ear. :-)
