Roll with the changes

Hey Scrappers! Long time no blog, huh? Well I didn't abandon my blog on purpose. In fact every day I haven't been able to blog has been tough. I don't know if any of you have been having any problems with Blogger but boy let me tell you, I certainly have. I have been trying to upload pictures and I keep getting error messages and it seems that when I do get my pictures uploaded, Blogger deletes them while I'm typing up my entries. This is so frustrating when it takes hours to write and upload a short entry when it should maybe take 15-20 mins. So those of you that love Blogger skip the next few lines because I feel like I have gone to the 'dark side'. I have opened a Type pad account for the Scrapping Sanctuary. I love blogging and if I have to continue to struggle with Blogger than I really think it's time that I find something that works better. I'm still working on the Type pad blog, making it look pretty and all, and I hope to have it up and running by the weekend. 

There's a few more changes I can see on the horizon. Last week I packed up all my stuff and moved out of my parents house and to a small apartment four hours away. At the end of June I will be moving again and hopefully it will be the last move for a while. With the move I had to quit my job working at the school that I have had for the past 8 months. It was hard to walk away but it had to be done. I have put in an application for a job that I would consider a dream at this point but I have my fingers crossed. So that means we are down to one income until I find out what happens with this application to see if I need to be looking for something else. A few great things have come out of all this change is that I am living with my husband again (he took a promotion in a different city and I didn't want to quit my job at the school so I waited to move) and I have all day while he's at work to scrap! If I can get Blogger to work I will try to upload pictures of a travel journal I'm working on and a Fall Pumpkin Patch mini I'm also working on.

Through all the change I keep reminding myself that all of these things are happening to me for a reason. I might not be happy with all this change and right now, that's okay with me. What's important is that I don't let it bother me too long and enjoy what I do have instead of looking at what I don't have and what I gave up. 

Okay, okay, back to work! Until later, Happy Scrappin! SB
