This is a long post, so scroll down to get to the The Inspiration Board Creative Party...

Hello everyone! I’m back. It’s been a whirlwind past month but I think I’ll be able to stay put for awhile. During all the travel which was mainly for my son’s volleyball team and his new college, I was offered a full time position with the company that I consult for. Did you know that I worked part time as a marketing consultant? I’ve steadily increased my working hours all while trying to keep up here on homework.

I accepted the full time job, because, uh, can we talk college tuition for the kid?. I’m blessed to be able to continue to work from my home office and will continue to blog. I’m going to try to not stress if I don’t have a post up or I can’t finish a project in time. This is going to be hard because for some reason, I think the world is going to stop spinning if I don’t have a post up every day. Hang in there with me friends, this is going to be a wild ride!

Some of you sent well wishes to me and my son when we traveled to Houston for the USA Volleyball Boy’s Junior National Championships and requested photos. So here are a few photos from our trip.

Now enough babbling about me. Time for you to share your wonderful creativity.

  4. Carolyn, congrats on your full time position - how awesome for you. And, what fun to travel with your son with his team and then college on the horizon. My granddaughter asked me to help her decorate her dorm room - not for this fall but, next fall... I am not ready. We will be here when you can so - one day at a time and enjoy all your new ventures. Thanks for hosting.. Cathy
