With the museum closing for the season, my employment needs to get creative for a few months...whatever I do for the winter needs to be flexible enough to be a good mom and spend time with my bubs, not take me far from home, require no degree, and somehow still feed us and pay the bills.  (Aye, there's the rub!)  Almost always, it's touch and go, we are often teetering on the brink, so I'm attempting to add even more to the mix.  In the past, I've tried to hob together writing gigs, photography sessions, modeling for art classes, substitute teaching, dance lessons and now, selling stuff on ebay!  Not much luck with sales so far, there must be a trick to it that I haven't figured out yet.  I'll crack the code, hopefully, and anyway, selling off things is a great way to simplify our life, I suppose.  Fingers crossed!

Swamped with work and soccer and life and temporarily neglecting this blog.  Closing the museum this week, so things will calm down a teeny bit shortly.  Just wanted to check in quickly to report that the fall color has been out-of-this-world!  See you on the flip side!  xxoo  Emily
