Learning How to Juggle

Some of you may have seen the photo I posted on Facebook of the current state of our living room. If not, here it is for your viewing pleasure:



As if having 25 boxes (some bursting at the seams) stacked up one on top of another wasn’t enough of a walking hazard, hubby decided one day last week to turn them into a secret hideout/maze for the kids (complete with a hidden camera peeking out from one end). I will leave that image up to your imagination because I can’t manage to fit the whole “arrangement” into one frame to show you. 😛

Suffice it to say, I have been learning how to juggle.


Quite amazing, isn’t it, how they can keep so many things going at once!


Thankfully, not with plates or balls or boxes, but with tasks. And for someone who multitasks as much as I do, it’s still been tough! Now, on top of my responsibilities as a wife and mom and writer, I can add entrepreneurial businesswoman to the list. Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Nah, it’s just a way for me to explain why we have 25 boxes taking up residence in our living room.

Before I can reveal what’s in those boxes though, I’m working on setting up a website and having photos taken of the lovely things in those boxes. This will hopefully be done within the next two weeks. I’m looking forward to announcing the product – and getting each and every one of those 25 boxes out the door!

Stay tuned! 🙂

Not sure why, but this song popped into my head. It’s the Beatles, “Twist and Shout”, something you should not do while you’re juggling, but something I hope to be able to do in the living room again someday!

I’m very curious to see if any one of you have had your own business before? If so, please share the ups and downs of your experience. I need all the help I can get!
