Well, I haven't posted in ages but that isn't because I didn't have anything to say. Justin went away on a trip and our computer decided that it couldn't live without him so I was left stranded, husband-less and internet-less until he came home. It was pretty lonely!
I have a handful of updates to catch up on before I can get back on track.
First, and most dramatic, is my decision to leave the Cinema Cafe project that I've been working on for months. It's pretty devastating to leave a job that I've put such a tremendous amount of energy into but I had to leave as an act of self preservation. I found out where the end of my rope was and how long I could go on being optimistic about a grand opening. I'm tying up loose ends this week and training their new manager but after that I'm washing my hands of the place. I learned a whole lot and I'm glad I did it (I think).
Then, I slinked back to my trusty old bakery job and I was given some work. It is so nice to be back at the bakery especially since it's apple tart season!
I also expect I'll be having a new job at a downtown natural baby goods store. I will be working on their displays and such so that will be fun. Babies are a bit out of my comfort zone but I know I'll adapt.
I hope that this job shift will leave me more time to focus on Argyle Whale. The Cafe was sucking so much of my time and creativity up that I barely had any left for the shop. My feelings are bittersweet but I'm optimistic that my creative pursuits will benefit from losing the cafe.
