Off to a good start!

This is my first completed project of 2017! A chevron knitted beanie. I made this for myself and last night I completed one for my daughter. 

I never make New Years resolutions, but this year, I did! I decided to complete a project before I move onto another! Sounds easy, right?! We will see! 

Last month really sucked. For starters, when I tried to contact the person who ordered 40 bars of cotton candy soap, to tell them it was ready to be shipped, I got no reply for two weeks. I got an answer after a second try and she told me she would “pass” this time and order from me again. Really? After I wasted time and money on this order. Three weeks later, she asked me if I would make her 60 bars of Valentines soap. I told her no. (Two lessons learned. 1. Prepay for wholesale orders. 2. I don’t like doing wholesale orders!)

I was told last month that I needed a biopsy on my left breast. Because of the holidays, I wasn’t able to get my biopsy until January 4th. That gave me 3-4 weeks of worry, anxiety and wondering what if.

Long story short, I am OK. No cancer. It was a real eye opener for me though. Are my affairs in order? Am I ready to battle cancer, if need be? My answers were yes.  I also became very aware of the things that were going on around me. Being completely in the moment brought me peace and happiness. I hope to continue this feeling throughout the new year instead of sleep walking through my life. 

My only worry now is that a camera in the waiting room recorded me doing karate kicks before being told the results! (I don’t know karate, so use your imagination!)
