Beauty Sleep

I'm always tweeting about needing my beauty sleep, kind of as a joke, but it's true! I do love my almost 8 hours of sleep! Althought lately I guess it's probably been a little less (oh geez, now I realize why I look the way I look!).

When I was "working" I was definitely a stickler for getting my 8 hours of sleep!

Now that I'm "not working" (haha) I'm guessing I get a little less sleep, but geez...I'm pathetically happy!

I really shouldn't be!

I was laid off from a great job (at least on paper), in April of 2008.

That is when I started my first Etsy shop http://www.jenscloset.etsy.com/ (encouraged by my best friend-oh, she happens to be my daughter too!! Lindsey!

That was a perfect way to add a little extra income.

Wait...then, my husband was laid off from the same company--ouch!

So, now here we are, in our "offices" at home!! I'm in my living room office, and Bob is in his dining room office, and yes...we our next to each other, just about everyday, for ...well.. a lot of hours! I hadn't actually thought about that!

I actually asked Bob today, if I was annoying! If you check me on twitter, you might be able to tell I'm very active!! I don't think of it as hyper, but most probably would!! He actually answered rather quickly (which makes me suspicious) "no!".

Now I am trying to remember why I started this blog in the first place.

Oh-yeah, it was about getting your beauty sleep.

I'm tired. I work hard. I think most of us do. Some of us don't need to. Some of us need to but don't. Some of us don't need to, but do! Whatever! I'm not here to judge (but I will!).

Work your butt off while you can.

But enjoy life along the way. I really believe it's about balance!

I personally, have never been happier. This is coming from a person with an unknown future-an an unknown financial future.

But I know who I am and what I can do!

I will get my "beauty sleep" and persevere!!!

I wish the best to all of you!!

I'm wishing you the best too Jen. And FYI, happiness trumps financial gain every day of the week!!! :-)
