The power is back on: Now what?

As I was cleaning up around the house the morning, I realized that it has been nearly a week since our power was restored. It's been only a few days since the Internet was restored. I realized this week went by so quickly. It's amazing how much work you can get done with power. When you don't have power, time seems to creep along so slowly. You have to use the daylight hours to do important things because when darkness arrives, you are left to use flashlights and it's really difficult to get anything done.

I do know this event made me realize that life is short and if you don't stop around once in awhile, you will miss it (I think that is a clip from Ferris Bueller's Day Off when Ferris was talking to Cameron). I realized that I work way too much, even though I make way less money than when I worked for other people. I also realized that my son is growing up way too fast. He's almost 2 already. Where has time gone? Because of this storm, I spent nearly two weeks with my son and did not have to do any work. I think he learned more in those two weeks than the past year. He's so smart already, it's insane. This storm also made me realize that I need more balance in my life. I should be able to juggle selling vintage clothing, making my handcrafted items and working with my son:
