Recently my 9 year old daughter asked me if I "worked". I happily told her "Yes, I do". I am responsible for all the up keep of the home, as well as her laundry, meals, shopping and cleaning and much more. So yes, it's work. She then reminded me that I have sold on Ebay and Etsy for a long time. Yes, I've been selling "stuff" online for a long time, but mainly vintage. It's been almost 15 years since I started on Ebay way back when. I remember Etsy when it first started and had only a few hundred shops. I have actually not ever really considered myself a WAHM, A.K.A work at home mom who actually earns income. It was just something I did, or do. In my former marriage there was not a lot of financial stability and that just became something I did to make ends meet. To pay a bill, to buy kids clothing, ect. However small or large, many women who are SAHM's go on to actually earn income and are WAHM's as well. Like myself. Maybe we should be called "SWAHM's".
I've been writing on my blog for a couple of years now and thought I would give a little more info about myself to my visitors. I love blogging. I recently set up a small office space of my own to dedicate more time to it. Here it goes:
I have recently been having a tough time with organization. I have a lot of projects I take on and it has me somewhat overwhelmed. Some projects include making a small office for myself to dedicate more time to blogging. Other projects include making retro valances and re-decorating our living room, which I will be blogging about soon. There's also the upstairs to contend with. That's where the children reside. It's Summer vacation and the upstairs look's like the tornado from the Wizard of Oz, hit it. We aren't in Kansas anymore, Toto.
