Mouth sewn shut

One of my goals when we relocated and I went from working full time to full time mom and jeweler — BLOG MORE!

Well here it is almost October, and we can see that that hasn’t happened! I am going to try to do better.

The thing is, we have been having a lot of issues with Ethan at his new school. It would be really helpful for me to pour my heart out and tell every detail and emotion that has been wrung out of me (it’s been quite a lot), and I’ve wanted to post about all the trials several times. However, something has always stopped me. I don’t hide our names on this blog (though I do our address) and we could be easily found by anyone involved.. Not that I am afraid of any retribution, but I don’t want to hurt anyone involved (including ourselves). I have been frustrated with those who still have Ethan’s best intentions at heart, and in venting those frustrations I may hurt feelings.. I’ve always had a rule on this blog: if you write *about* someone, always write as if they are reading it. I don’t think I can do that here.

Also, it is one thing to post cute photos of your toddlers on your blog, but Ethan is 9 now and I have to consider his privacy as well – he may not need/want it now, but in the years to come, he is going to be on the internet increasingly, as well as his peers and I need to consider how much information I put out there (and remember – the internet is FOREVER) that really is personal to him.

So… all that in mind.. It’s been a very hard month. I feel as if we’re out of the riptide however, and making our way in out of the deep. We’ll see how it goes. I am so grateful for the professionals we’ve found in Colorado that are helping see us through this.

Sorry for the silence.. and the lack of details on this situation.

I have started a new jewelry class which is fun and frustrating all in one! I’ll post more about that soon. Today I have to do laundry and cut rings – my jewelry has not been selling (i smell a sale coming) but my supplies shop is hoppin’!
