For those who wish to add me, you can find my shop profile here: Yep, you know you want to look You can also find my personal profile in my friends...I put myself first. ;p
So I will soon be packing for my move back to Cleveland. I have to say I'm feeling rather insecure about this in a great number of ways, and I doubt any real reassurance will be forthcoming. Nothing like being stared at like a monkey doing a math problem when you mention trips home! Makes a girl feel so loved and wanted, let me tell you.
On the other hand, I will be beyond glad to get away from this hellhole of negativity, stupidity, and backstabbing. I've met a handful of genuinely nice people here, and I mean none of this toward you, but my experience here has been basically one big pile of crap from the first day I found out my husband planned on staying here permanently.
I wake up every day wishing we hadn't left TN. While I was very lonely there too, at least things were a great deal more equitable, and I saw a hell of a lot more potential for us as a couple and our future there. It's been very one-sided since we left, and I'm done with that. Plus, I refuse to give up my cats. I will not give this place one more ounce of my blood or soul. It doesn't deserve it.
So, yeah, moving back to Cleveland is exciting me a hell of a lot more then it should, and otherwise would under different circumstances. I plan to spend as much time with people I haven't seen in a while and I'm sure my dad will be happy to have me around for a while.
In business news I have a domain name, now I just need to learn to build the site. A lovely friend has sent me software with templates, so I will probably launch that soon after arriving back in Cleveland (I refuse to call it home, as Chicago is the only place that has ever really felt like home to me). I would like an alternative to Etsy for selling, as that venue, while I have met a great deal of lovely people and mostly enjoy it, has made some decisions and admin runs things in ways that are not very business saavy and I don't want to put all of my eggs in one basket. Plus it will be nice to sell things and not have someone take a cut, above and beyond the monthly fee. It's a dot net, because I wanted to keep the name the same to avoid confusion and the dot com was already taken.
Anyway, it's time to go get some caffeine to try and wake myself up. I'm dragging butt today.
