My life changed in January of this year, sometimes life will just kick you square in the teeth to get your attention and that is what happened to me.
My mom passed away suddenly on Jan. 13 and this made me stop and analyze my life, my priorities and my purpose for being on this planet.
Several changes are underway but the big one was the closing of my live antique shop, my dream. My last day of business was Feb. 20 I then had 5 days to move out of a very large business with (now I find out) nowhere to go. My overhead was ridiculous and the lenders and landlords would not work with me. The economy of course sent the business over the edge.
The online shop will be bigger and better than ever once I get it moved over to the new site with loads of new inventory. This should happen toward the end of the month. At the moment I am so overwhelmed with all the "inventory" piled all over my house, patio and backyard. I am behind on getting orders shipped and as if this weren't enough I am sick as a dog.
What else will I be changing in my life? Spend time with my family; the shop sucked up all of my time and energy, start eating better and exercising again; both of which went by the wayside with the store, garden; oh my gosh how I have missed working in my garden, try and get through the mourning process; this was very hard to do with the shop.
I will miss all of the paranormal energy and spirits that kept me company in the store - www.mygrannysatticantiques.com/hauntedantiqueshop I felt a great attachment and fondness for the spirits especially the little boy who was ever present. Who knew that I would ever feel a fondness for at least 10 ghosts but I spent more time with them than I did my family. I hope to be able to get back into the shop and investigate again soon while there are no antiques in place.
I will miss my many wonderful customer's I met some amazing people through the shop.
I got to live my dream for over a year and that is more than many people get.
Be sure and visit the shop online 24/7 and come back often.
