I am pretty excited to say that I have had 9 orders in my Etsy Store in the last 3 days!! WooHoo! I would be lying if I didn't say I am amazed. If you don't know how this all started for me, you can read it HERE!
I really was just looking for something to do, so I wouldn't take 3 naps a day and send my domestic attorney 100 expensive emails. I never really thought I would sell anything. I just needed something to fill the time that life was taking from me. But then I did need to have some sort of return on my investment because my attorney was sending me bills and I was pretty sure she didn't want paid in coasters. No matter how cool I thought they were, I was spending money coastering, that needed to go to her.
With Thanksgiving approaching, it seems like a good time to remind myself how truly thankful I am. I do have 2 sons, and even though one of them is off the radar, they are both healthy and loved. I am healthy and loved. Even through the trying nature of a custody issue, you have to be able to know there is goodness somewhere. There is.
I have a good job, and countless opportunities. I am not without food, shelter, or clothes. My children have no needs that aren't met. My family, when not totally disfunctional, is completely supportive. I have no complaints. And honestly, selling coasters on Etsy, makes me have less complaints, because I know exactly how lucky I am to have sales at my Etsy Store. I have read, studied, learned, read, observed, and then did it all again. I have worked at it. Just as I do everything. I am proud of what I am accomplishing AND my attorney keeps getting paid. That is normally where I insert an obscenity, but I don't feel my blog is the right place for that 10 letter word.
Happy Thanksgiving Early
