Topsy Turvy

I relocate really well.  But that is when it is only me, with no one else involved in any way.  I can pack up a suitcase, move to another location, and settle in just fine.  I will suffer occasional bouts of loneliness, but I make friends quickly, love to explore on foot, and find ways to occupy my time.

Now, bringing a child in to the mix.  A child who is solely dependent on me to provide for her, give her attention, and make her feel safe.  That is a whole different story.  Then, factor in the school system, health system, and daily routine, and suddenly it’s nowhere near easy.  I hadn’t anticipated this.  The system isn’t working with me; there is no leeway.  It’s as though they expect me to already know their requirements, and because I don’t they treat me as though I’m wasting their time.  The system is ineffective and unfeeling.

I have had plenty of things to handle recently that has kept my creative powers restrained.  And I am finally happy to report that those “things” are being worked out – post minor breakdown, but still.  I’m a single parent running my own business while relocating.  I just took on the world!

I am almost ready to let the creative juices spill out again.  I have a few more commissions I am running around to fill, while setting up house, and creating the craft studio.  We still have no furniture.  No, that is not true entirely.  I found an armchair on the curb when I visited my dad and hefted it into the back of my station wagon.  I also had a friend give me a small kitchen table with 2 dining chairs and a comfy arm chair.  I would love to find a fainting couch, antique hat rack, and other ridiculous romantic items.

In the meantime,  I am trying to come up with good holiday items and beyond, new marketing, and whatnot.  I am essentially starting over in a new, unfamiliar town.  This will take time.

But I am mom.  I am woman.  I am faery.  I can do anything!
