If you keep up with me on Instagram, then you know I went completely unhinged in Joann this weekend. I went there for four things and came out with 16 patterns, some fabric, two zippers, four spools of thread, and two rotary cutters. ?? It was the classic case of the Targets…go in for one thing, come out with a basket full. But listen, Linda. I have absolutely no regrets. That day, I learned that retail therapy is a real thing.
Well, after getting through the sewing issue, I had a bit of a surprise. Toward the end of the month, I found out the my position at work was being eliminated and, as of mid-October, I would no longer be employed by the company that I had been with since graduating college. How timely was the debt free story! Thankfully, this wasn’t a financial crisis for us and I was able to secure my dream job within a week. I won’t share the details yet, but just know that it involves sewing!! ? I certainly have a testimony to share, which I’ll be including in my next book. (Check out my first book here!)
With craziness happening in my own world, it didn’t help that every time I turned on the news or opened up an internet browser, I saw the world was also going through it. Hurricane after hurricane, threats of war, mass shootings, and even things happening in my local area. September was a month that I’m glad has passed! …And now it’s October. I couldn’t be more grateful for a new month and the fact that I’ll also be celebrating my birthday soon! It’s sure to be some great things in store.
