The big news is - I am closing my remaining retail store and have taken a job! Sunneshine will close on Sunday - not much time to get rid of what is remaining... But I work well under pressure.
I have taken the Director of Programs position at The Gathering Place in Denver. It is a drop-in shelter for women and children experiencing poverty. I have been volunteering there for almost two years, and in the last 10 days this opportunity opened up. I could not be more thrilled! While I have loved my stores, I have given up a lot of things, experiences and time. I am ready to work 5 days a week (not 7), be able to vacation (not having my cell phone with me and WORRYING), and, best of all, spend more time with mr.sunneshine. I know there will be ups and downs, but at the end of the day, it will be nice to feel that my work matters.
Since the camera batteries are dead, you will have to wait to see my knitting - which is going slowly, but going... So I left you with a Christmas Eve family photo - my dad, Linda his SO, me and mr.sunneshine.
