Dare to Share #478

It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share!

I have been a bit all over the place the last couple of weeks. 

Last weekend I mentioned that we were going to have a surprise retirement party for two of my friends. It was huge success! Both of them were surprised, and we had beautiful weather. 

The rest of this past week has been a little more busy.  I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that as a sub, I don't get paid in the summer.  I was babysitting my friend's boys for a few weeks when school ended, but I needed to figure out what to do for work for the next couple of months. I have found a few side gigs, and I'm still looking for more, because the bills still need to be paid even when school is not in session.  Tomorrow I will be assisting a family at a graduation party. I am pretty excited about that.  I picked up a tutoring job for a girl who will be attending my school, and may be working with a 2nd child as well.  Today I signed up to drive for a delivery service.  I am feeling a little anxious about that, but I like that I can do it on my own schedule.  I also have a few things that I have been working on online.  I have been trying to stay focused on making printables for my Etsy shop, and I found a really cool app to make a merch shop. They merch shop will also need some designs.  Once I do the upfront work for those, hopefully they will be easier to keep up with.  I also have been asked by two companies to try out their creative projects and review them.  I have not been able to do much with those projects, because of my crazy schedule.  Another thing that I know I did not mention on here yet, but my boyfriend is also currently being tested to see if he has cancer.  They found three smalls spots on a MRI he had a few weeks ago.  While we are both staying as positive as we can, it is in the back of our minds.  

I know that is a lot, but I thought I would share because I have not really had a chance to post on the blog the last couple of weeks.  I still have plans to post about the play that I helped the boys I babysit put together, and the parties I have been working on.  

Well it is getting late, so I really should get this party started.  
Link up and HAVE FUN!!

  5. Thank you everyone, we appreciate all the prayers. The graduation party I helped out at today was a success. The mom had some really great ideas, and everyone had a lot of fun. It was an added bonus when I found out the graduate is going to be going to my alma mater in another state. :)

  6. Hope that you are able to work. It is bad for a sub. Wishing your boyfriend well. Sending you positive thoughts.

  7. Wow - you are one busy lady!! Thank you for taking the time to host the party! My husband has a spot on his lung they are watching for cancer. It's in a place they can't biopsy, but it's very small and they don't think it's aggressive if it is cancer. But I understand how that is always on the back of your mind. You hear the word cancer and there you go... Hang in there. Sending positive white light energy to you both.


I would love to hear from you!
