Gathering steam

As I get used to the new job and the new schedule, I realize that I've begun to lose some of the stress that had been so pervasive while I was working in the office. No longer are my shoulders pulling inward as I walk into the building, no more do I dread getting a text that might be asking me to do the impossible. Yes, the current job is physically demanding, but it feels really good, too.

My fundraiser is nearly over and there are still spaces available for the self-striping yarn club as well as other goodies. If you're interested, please check it out and share with your friends.

The cats seem to have settled in very nicely here, even with the limited space. I made sure to give them a lot of places to hide and to climb and I've checked to make sure that their climbing spots are stable (Aurora does have a tendency to fall if anything is even slightly wobbly). There are still things that I want to be able to do for them, like one of those cool towers, but it will have to wait until I save up more money.

I have rearranged things several times so far and am still not quite happy with the flow of the room. One plan that is in the works is a loft bed with shelves. After talking it over with my dad, I feel confident that I can build my own loft bed with the tools that I have. He pointed out things that I could do to make sure everything is stable and I'm hoping to start construction within the next 2 weeks. That will open up more floor space for me and will also give me more places to store my business supplies (because it's no fun having to open cardboard boxes to get to the shipping labels and envelopes). I can't wait to show you guys pictures!

There is a new baby in my small family! Anthony's sweetheart gave birth to a little girl and she's one of the sweetest babies I've ever seen. Even though the technical term is "step-dad", Anthony's the kind of man who leaves the "step" part in the dust. I am so very proud of him and his decision. My tiny Triforce family has facets growing on two sides now. Between Brianna bringing one person in and Anthony bringing 3 people in, it feels pretty darn special!

My kids... oh, how I miss them sometimes! They are both doing well and I'm hoping that I'll be able to see them before long. In the meantime, there are already 2 care packages planned out for them.

I have a lot more to write, but today is mostly my resting day so I want to end this now with a blessing for joy to you all.
