Happy Spring


It's that amazing time of year where mother nature walks among us blessing us with new life, beautiful colors and renewal of all things. I love all the seasons for different reasons, however, who can hate spring? I mean the wonderful colors that pop up during spring are amazing. We are blessed with the amazing blue sky dotted with big fluffy white clouds. All the different flowers and plants that bloom in all the shades of pale pinks, yellows, oranges, and violets. The vibrant greens of the grass and leaves. Spring is definitely an artist's canvas ready for everyone to enjoy.

Besides the colors of the season Spring also means a few different things to me. First, when I come back home from my Texas adventure I will be starting my Spring Cleaning. That's right that's where I clean everything top to bottom in my home. I weed out all the old stuff that is no longer being used and either add it to my online store or it gets added to my recycle crafts pile. It also means freshening up the house and doing minor repairs. That way going into the summer things are nice and neat.

Another great thing about Spring is my garden! I love planting and bringing new things to life. That's right I plant a garden and it's awesome just to step out the back door and have fresh produce. I have about a quarter of my plants planted and when I get back from Texas I will be planting the rest. Gardening is a great hobby and it relaxes me. I guess you can say gardening brings me to my happy place. Do you like gardening? What do you plant? Let me know in the comment section below.

Our first full spring month April also gave me the birth of my third daughter Megan.  She is so like me we fight like often but its because we are both stubborn and pigheaded. She is truly my spring baby so full of a zeal for life. (Yes, I do have a baby for each season and no it was not planned that way.)

Another thing Spring brings is April showers. Yes, I am going there. April showers do bring May flowers. By mid-April, my garden will be 100% planted and because of the rain we get in Florida my plants will be in bloom. 
Who does not love listening to the sound of rain? I personally love listening to the sound of the rain pitter-pattering on the roof and against the windows while I enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee and read. Or if I am feeling a bit inspired possibly going into writer mode and work on my next novel. It has been raining on and off since I was at the airport coming out to Texas as well as while being here. To me, this is a wonderful Spring memory. Especially since I get to be here with my oldest daughter, son-in-law, and Grandbaby.

So from myself and the rest of the crazy, we hope your upcoming Easter, as well as the start of your spring, is amazing and full of regrowth.

Much Love and Blessings To All,
ANGIE

Being A Mom-Entrepreneur! The Ultimate Superhero!

Happy Hump Day All!

I am writing you from the desk of crazy! At this time I will admit the crazy is a little quiet... knock on wood I don't want to jink it. No, seriously Jen and Megs are watching Netflix, Lizzie Bee is at the park with her friends and Robbie is playing video games in the living room. Even the cat and dog are calm and quiet in other rooms. Although I am cleaning my bathroom and when the kids use it all the time it definitely needs cleaning. But seriously as long as my crazy is calm at the moment I am ok with it.

I actually am in the midst of spring cleaning until next weekend so I am hoping that I can get everything done and organized as the kids are back to school next week. Can I get an AMEN? One day my kids will be like "very funny mom" in the comments but until then its all clear on the mom joke front.

But to the main point of my post, today why am I here? All you moms who work from home as well as raise babies, kids, teens you are all superheroes. I am proud to say I know some of the most hardworking amazing women ever and you all should be having your capes laundered and ironed regularly.

These moms not only get their kids through the world but work and maintain a house while they do it. Its a hard job with very little recognition. So I am here to recognize you, the superheroes that are called mommy because you are all amazing and wonderful woman. I myself am just getting back to being a momtrepreneur and it's not easy you have to set up guidelines and schedules and be prepared for dinner and all the crazy amazing things that will go wrong or change your plans during the day! Hey, I had to cut my schedule down till next Sunday to just organize what I need to do so when I go full out work from home mom mode I will not cry!

I also want to point out all you work away from home moms are also superheroes as well and I do not want anyone to think that I am just cheering on work at home moms because that is furthest from the truth. I had to go back to work when my youngest was 5 weeks old because of his father. You can only imagine emotional upset it caused me because my baby needed his mama during that time and it couldn't happen.  Although Robbie and I are very close I still regret being away from him at such a young age. 

The thing is all moms who work deserve to be recognized and cheered on. To the moms who are staying at home moms, to the moms who work away from home, to the moms who have amazing successful home businesses, and to the moms like me who are scared to death and are literally jumping into the pool of adventure by being work from home moms.

My name is Angie I am a mom, a blogger, a freelancer, a gamer, an artist, and a momtrepreneur I juggle my hats as best I can and I am proud to be in the company of such fine ladies!

Becoming Me

I have been thinking a lot about what my next blog post should be and to be honest with you it took me a bit of time to really come up with a post that I decided I had to do. So I guess hold on to your hats and beware this is going to be a bit of an honest and raw post so if you don't like hearing the truth you might not want to read this. However, I think for most of the moms and people out there that are at a crossroads in their life I hope that this post will help at least one person.  I already know that there will be unkind words and comments about the fact I am being selfish I shouldn't take that chance or put that kind of pressure on my husband. So let's begin, shall we... 

On January 30th I lost my full-time job. This job I was at for over 11 years and I actually liked the people I worked with more than the job as the job demanded way too much of their employees for minimum wage and there was definitely favoritism that ran in the store where I had been employed. When it comes to looking for a job though I am being selfish the last job took me from my children and family and I got lost in a constant pattern where when I had to go to my previous job I would cry every morning before I had to go.  I decided I would not do that again.

I am a Blogger,  a Crafter,  a Writer with 2 books now,  a Freelancer and a Small Business Owner! Now I have been thinking why can't I do what I enjoy with all of that and stay out of the corporate world.  Why can't I work from home and be a mom and a wife? Well, the answer is simple I have no one supporting me emotionally so I can do it. I have no one telling me I can do it or that they have faith in me, they just say you can't. You don't work you need to go find a job.

This has not helped my anxiety and depression or bipolar disorder.  I will admit I have been so discouraged since I lost my job that I have let my above issues take control of me more than I really wanted to admit from laying in bed, stopping my writing, putting my freelancing, crafting and small business on the back burner. There are some days I will take my teens and son to school and just go back to bed so I can avoid the day. I feel like I am in a losing battle where I just don't care most of the time.
This has led to my health acting up again. My weight is starting to go back up and my hernia is acting up again. I even have avoided being outside which means me neglecting to work more on my beloved garden and only just watering the plants that are already out there. My hair has huge grey patches and my eyebrows need to be done. I am a mess.

This morning while looking on Pinterest hiding in bed I came across this quote by accident as my kitten started swatting at my screen.  Then as Rambo swatted at my phone again the next quote came up.

 I sat and thought about both quotes and decided I needed to start listening and this was my wake up call.I have always tried to do what I needed to do and believe God has had a plan for me all along I just am not a great listener. To be very honest I have been weak. I want to be happy in my life and I want to do this. I am making my way with gods help and guidance.

So what did I do? I cried. Why because I am scared that everyone I love will stand against me. Then I started to pray and there my blue-grey little furball made some noise and directed my attention to my computer. There on the screen, I had left up last night was one of my freelance sites and on my split screen the Etsy account I have been fiddling with.  I calmed my tears and sat up and said okay I get the message. I started a hot shower and got my clothes out to start the day.  I slacked on some stuff today but I decided no matter what people say to me I have to have faith. So I am making myself a daily schedule so I can handle things the way they need to be handled and I can get my life to the point where I can be happy for myself and my family. So although I am afraid I am going to have the courage and my faith God is with me and that I will not let fear stop me.

As to the people that are saying no you can't do this well I have always had your backs and I love you. For eleven years I was unhappy and its time you all have faith in me so I can be brave and succeed.

My Love and Blessings to you all,

Angie
