This will be my last post here on House Crazy.
I outlined some of the reasons why when I announced the retirement of my blog last month.
I sure will miss all the cool, wonderful people I have met and come to know through this website. You house-lovers are my people!!
But don’t be sad my friends. I look at this ending as an opportunity – a new beginning. I once again get to reinvent myself and I am really excited about the future, however challenging it may be.
I have been lucky enough to cram several reincarnations of myself into one lifetime – most people don’t get to do that, so I am actually grateful for the twists and turns that I have faced.
My first priority is to spend more time with my kiddos and less time on the darn computer. My young children really need me to be emotionally present right now and, “Leave mommy alone – I’m working!” isn’t really cutting it for them.
Then I need to focus my energy on finding the right person/caretaker to buy this darn old house.
I love her, but it is time to move on!
As I mentioned before, I will eventually need to start looking for full-time work – a “real job”. This endeavor will be a challenge in itself because I have been out of the traditional workforce since 2005. (Employers don’t get too excited about “writer/blogger & stay-at-home-mom” on a resume.)
Nonetheless, I will throw all my energy into getting a job, even if that is in the household goods department at Walmart. (Not to belittle those who work at Walmart – I love hanging out in the decorating aisles!)
And hey, if you know someone who needs a hard-working/writer/former social-worker to employ, let me know!
Is it possible that House Crazy Sarah will start another blog in the future?
(One which isn’t riddled with copyright/legal problems ?)
It is entirely possible. Heck, I may even re-start House Crazy down the road if I can figure out a way to do so without infringing on copyright laws!
So my friends – don’t despair!
