Finally Friday...
October... looking ahead!

The days are long...

***

And my nights are far too short. I haven't adjusted to our "new life" here in Cape Breton and I can see that it's going to be a long haul, and definitely not as easy as I had thought. I don't even know what I really thought it would be like honestly, but it's different & difficult most days. It's my son's birthday in a few short days and that's hitting me really hard. I miss him something fierce and I so wish I could just jump on a plane and spend the day with him... *sigh*

Right now I'm currently working on completing my custom orders and then I need to accomplish some other projects which have taken a backseat to paid work. I think once I'm 'caught up' and have some of these other things off of my list, I'll feel better about life - I hope. But right now, I feel like I definitely need to keep up the long hours and accomplish what needs done every day. I honestly go from 6am till about 10pm every night... between sewing, back & forth to the school, hs'ing with Maria, homework with Mya, housework, cooking, cleaning, etc... it's energy sapping. When I wake up in the morning I literally feel like I just closed my eyes for 10 minutes and it's time to go again...

Dh & I have decided that owning a car here is not optional, and that's a big part of the reason why I have to keep things moving on my end with the income flowing. We're wanting to buy a vehicle outright (used) and will need to find out insurance rates, etc... in London, being without a vehicle for the most part wasn't much of an issue, but here, it's a whole other story, which I'll expand on when I have more energy. If you're in my area, you know exactly what I mean. But for now I need to focus on my sewing for bills and to save for a vehicle (hopefully) before winter hits. And yes, Dh does have his licence for Nova Scotia. I won't be driving anytime soon...

So for now, I'll keep on keeping on, and hope that things will settle or "even out" sooner than later as i'm not sure how long I can keep up this pace for. 6 hour nights and 18 hour days really are tiring... most days I don't even get a "break" except to eat my dinner. My eating habits are not stellar... healthy food, 100% yes, enough of it? Definitely not...

On that note I'm off for the night... I feel like I'm going to crash & burn and I have another good almost 2 hours before I can go to bed. *Yawn* I hope everyone had a fabulous day!
