Friday! OOMP – there it is!!! I feel like I want to run to the end of the living room and do some sort of touch down dance.
It has been a GOOD week. I have been back from our trip for a little over a month now and have gone from feeling exhausted and lazy, to “what am I going to do with my life?”, to cautiously putting myself out there, to picking up a few freelance jobs, to slowly developing a name, to a possible local commitment that is flexible and can work around my other projects. I will know more after today.
EEP. (in a good way)
It has been scary cool putting together my own work commitments and wondering if it would work. I had fears that working from home would be too hard to stay focused but that has not been true. And honestly I really really like it and feel I am getting a nice rhythm.
Ok, apparently I have the dork meter set on HIGH today. I am having breakfast with a friend and partner in
crime all things bike ride related this morning for putting together a charity bike ride for camp this summer. I am really excited how that has come together this week. I built this super cool website: Camp Benedict Cyclists
I also think I have landed the final author I need for Wine and Words this year. Just waiting on final confirmation and then I can start making announcements and update that website as well.
So if life really is really like a box of chocolates… my week has been all milk chocolate caramels (MY FAV!) and not one single coconut filled one. HAZAH again.

I’m glad things are working out so well for you, Sheila!
Thank you Kathy!
Yes! It sounds as though you are doing what you like while still having time to do the other things that you like. I love staying at home…I loved teaching but I love being at home! Heck…you are free! You can take a bike ride any time you want to…you can drop into a chair and read for 30 minutes if you want to! Enjoy! Hey…you can even jump into an icy cold lake whenever you want to! Lol…
Exactly. I love that I can work on my laptop on a cold day in a recliner with a warm blanket. I love that if a friend wants to meet for lunch I can go.
Sounds like an exciting time in your life. Good luck!
It is…. it is coming together. It has been busy crazy but I know it will level out 😉
Happy Friday, Sheila! Hazah!
Hazah!!! *clap! clap! clap!* 😆
Sounds like a great week for you, but you are welcome to send any coconut filled chocolates my way……..yummy 🙂
You may have them all. Not a coconut fan. 😀
and a HIP HIP HOORAY!
and a request to come visit me and help me get MY shit together… 🙂
It’s wonderful how everything’s really coming together! And the chocolate caramels are my favourite, too.
Sheila, I’m happy you seem to be finding your groove in your new “life after work (outside the home)” 😀 I figured you would! lol And “hazah” always makes me think of “Pirates of the Caribbean” 🙂
Awesome post….I can feel your energy.
ENJOY this new week coming up. I know you will.
