So here I am: married at 24, divorced at 35, and my daughter is leaving for college in September. After so many years of raising a bright, well-adjusted adult, I have forgotten what is like to be a little selfish. When I was younger I went back to school and got my accessory design degree from F.I.T. But after my divorce, I was left to take care of my daughter with no support from my jack-ass ex husband. This meant, like most single moms know, this meant two, sometimes even three jobs to keep the household running. It was like I was running always in overdrive, even so that once I became gravely ill.
But I digress, This blog is not about the past, but the future specifically mine. I started this blog to follow my trials of becoming a “selfish” person, by that I mean getting myself out of the work, clean, shop and sleep mode that enables a single mom to function. I felt that I should start getting back to the days of olde when I would sew/design 40% of my wardrobe and get back to my handbag business. Both of these things were put on hold due to exhaustion, but I feel that I can finally start towards the light in the tunnel.
So here starts the re-training of my brain, by blogging everyday after I sew ( this means sewing everyday). I hope to rekindle the designing fire I had when I was young and fresh.
