Submarines, Ahoy!

I'll start his blog post off saying, that instead of dating these blog posts I am going to move to titles...since the blog post is already dated.

Now that is out of the way...let's move on to submarines. My husband is a submariner, and I bought some submarine hats from a fellow Homefront Team Etsian, named Moose Threads. Her yarn is so soft and her hats so well made! I thought these hats would be a perfect way to not only remember Daddy while he is deployed, and showing our pride, but also as a way to dress for him when he has homecoming later this year.
My husband has been gone since May and we still have quite a while to go. We are a Navy family, and there is so much pride in being a submariner. They are just cool!

So things are going good. I just started back to work full time and how to juggle, work, family, Etsy, exercise, housework and my sanity is a mystery. I do not want to let go of my shops, so I am trying to change my habits to make all this work. I plan on only going to the post office every Wednesday and Saturday, doing creation and photos on weekends and listing those new items during the week. This will be hard for me, because I prefer to list immediately. Not sure why, I guess I just get excited to see the reactions. Probably by the time I hit a rhythm, Scott will be home and it will all be screwed!

I am trying to allow myself to take it easy and do as best as I can, and not worry so much about doing everything. I'm just going to try working it, and see what may end up falling out.

So this weekend I got my house in order (literally and figuratively), and we are ready for a new week ahead.

1. Neighbors who this week, mowed my lawn, took my trash back from the curb, took my umbrellas down for the storm, and cleaned up the floors in my house.
2. My new job rocks!
3. I got an email from my husband.
4. The kids liking and doing well in school so far this year.
5. Catching a rhythm to get through this deployment.

Raise me up, and Don't Let Me Fall" -U2
