postheadericon Back in the saddle again!

I am coming up on the close of my first week back in business.  It as been busy and very fulfilling!  I managed to knock out 2 orders in 24 hours...that was fun! Orders are coming in and keeping me busy.  Which has been great so I have less time to ruminate on the huge changes happening in my life.  If you haven't heard, we will be moving back to California at the end of the year.  So Sugar Beez is coming to the Los Angeles area!  Watch out LA, here we come!

postheadericon Where the heck have I been?

It has been a very long time since I have posted anything!  Wow!  Lots of changes in my personal life.  As you can see from my last post, I was let go from my job.  Then my personal life began to take a turn for the worse too.  I'm now in the midst of ending a 22+ year marriage and it has been very stressful.  I actually took a break from cookies all together for about a month.  I couldn't function or focus on cookies so I figured it wasn't fair to keep taking orders.  During that month I actually gave serious consideration to giving up on cookies all together.  Thank goodness I put that thought down to focus on just getting through my days. 

I am now on the upside in terms of my self-esteem.  I'm feeling better about myself and my decisions and so I decided to revisit the issue of Sugar Beez and whether to continue...and my decision is...yes, I will continue the business.  I do get a lot of enjoyment out of doing cookies and I'd like to think I'm good at it, so why not do something that affirms my self worth? 

So, back to the Kitchen Aid!
