Oh October. Already? This year is surely getting by. Seems like just a few short months ago we met, and now I’m staring you in the face again a year older not sure the wiser but certainly thankful to see you again.
Here is my October chalkboard artistry for the month. I need to clean it up a little but for the most part this is it. The children love it, it really and truly is the small things with little people.
So I’m starting off the month in a personal funk. Lately I’ve been really second guessing my career path or rather lack thereof and really thinking about returning to work. To do what you ask? That’s a good question because I don’t know and it has me a little bit sad.
My husband is all on this kick that we really need to be saving more for retirement…and we do. Not to mention there are tons of things that need to be done around here and while we aren’t struggling, after saving etc. there isn’t a whole lot of extra to go around so that leaves me with the feeling and certainly not the desire to go back to work.
Problem is I don’t want to commute, I don’t want to relinquish my freedom, I don’t want my kids to not see me for days at a time because I’m traveling and I don’t want to do anything I’m not passionate about. I know, first world problems at their finest. All of this kind of keeps me up at night. Kind of has me with the for real sads and feelings of inadequacy that my little side hustles aren’t enough to make all of this madness a non factor.
Oh well. God is able and it’ll all work out as it should.

Excited for October and all of the Fall fun that it brings. Next week my kids are out of school for Fall break and my Dad will be in town so lots of fun in store I’m sure. We’ll be headed to the North Georgia mountains on Thursday for a day of apple picking. Hoping that with the few cool nights that we’ve had some of the leaves will have started changing colors.
We’ll find our way to the pumpkin patch, do a little horseback riding, stumble our way through a corn maze you know the usual fall stuff.
You’ll notice a few minor changes here on the blog. A newsletter will be making its debut in the next few weeks. If you wouldn’t mind please sign up below. PLeeeeeaaaaaaseeeeee!
Trying to streamline a few things and just make a few minor changes here and there for the better I hope.
Hope all is well in your world. Do share, what does October have in store for you?!!
Know anybody hiring?
