He never forgets.
Even when he isn't here, he's taking good care of me.
I should have washed him more boxers for his trip, he's a better marriage partner than I am. Sigh.

So I've really done some soul searching. That degree wasn't cheap. And I owe it to myself to use it. But my kids are flourishing. Dave is thriving. My house is blessed. Why in the world would I throw all of that goodness out of whack for someone to issue me a paycheck.
I'll issue my own. I've done recruiting off and on over the past couple of years. I enjoy it. I'm okay at it. I like working for myself but frankly I hated talking to people constantly. The phone glued to my ear.
I want to be able to get up with the kids, throw on some sweats and make them breakfast while chatting about their day. I want to be able to run by and have lunch with one with little notice, I want to help out with a school project, I want to be there when they get home with stories of their day while they snack on something I've made them. I like being the mom sitting at soccer (or volleyball or tap or piano) waiting on her kids. I carry books with me. I'm happy doing it.
I like having dinner on the table when Dave gets in. I enjoy the house chores. I love staying up after everyone is asleep to make sure lunches are packed and backpacks are ready for the next day.
We are busy.
But there is that nudge still.
So I've been extra busy.
The last three weeks I've been finding a lawyer, forming an LLC, building a website, buying inventory, and basically floating around on cloud 9. I'm opening my own store. Online. I can't be more excited. There is some incredible software out there and I'm finally able to use my design skills again. It's official. According to the state, I'm a legal business owner.
I'm working basically from 9-12 and 1-3 everyday in my little home office I've built. Couldn't be happier. If everything goes as planned I will launch October 1st. My very first shipment will actually arrive on Monday and I'm biting my nails nervous.
God is good though and I'm so excited to be able to put my efforts toward creating something that could allow me the ability to be here for all the things during the day that count the most.
Plus I love naps and I can fit that in my schedule if I'm the boss.

So when I'm bored, I shop for church dresses. Random I know. But seriously I look for them. I'm addicted to soft, elastic waisted ones which are way comfy and I can layer up tons of outfits from. So last night I'm trolling google pics looking for brown elastic waist dress.... holy shite there was a pic of Dave. As in my hubby Dave. From this website.
Ummmm no words lol.
Still looking for the dress though.
