I saw a Grumpy Cat meme the other day that summed up my current life situation:
In the midst of a work environment that had become toxic due to a terrible supervisor, I applied for a new job earlier this summer. And I got it! I'll still be a librarian, and still at a community college, but it is about an hour away from where we currently live. Which means buying a new house...and selling our current house...and packing...and...and....and..... ARGH.
We're about 2 solid days of packing and cleaning away from being completely ready to list our place - I suppose we COULD list ASAP, but we don't have any pictures for the agent to create the listing. If it sells at the price point the agent seems to think it will, we should be in the market for something quite nice (not super-fancy, but that's okay because that isn't my style anyway!). It is just all this hurry-up-and-waiting that is making me crazy.
I walked into my basement craft cave, which I've been steadily stocking and creating in for almost 10 years, and wanted to cry. SO. MUCH. STUFF! Part of me says, "get rid of it, you'll NEVER finish it," while another part of me says "...but that is such an awesome Crafty Plan!! Keep it!" Sigh. And it is so nicely organized, too. I do have one big box of old patterns that I don't intend to keep, but I just don't know if I have the time or patience to list them all on a stash site. They may be donated, I just can't decide! But in my flustration (yes, that's what I intended to type), I had to sit down and Make. Here's the result -
All my ladies, posing together with my in-progress Seaside Angel!
