I've been thinking lately about my general lack of job qualifications. I have an extremely shady job history. I walked out on my last job, I worked under the table as a nanny for 2 years in Canada before that. In fact the vast majority of jobs I've had lasted about 6 months. I also don't have a college degree, since I applied the same kind of commitment and fervor to college that I did to working. The only good things in my job history are my persistent volunteer work for Norwescon and the fact that I worked for myself for the last 3 years, and that is only a bonus because I doubt people will ask in detail how financially viable I was.
Because I think about stuff too much, I've been thinking about what would happen to me if Walker died and I suddenly had to support myself again, or if he got laid off and I needed to get a job. I don't want to work retail again, and I don't want to go to college again. I think the best idea is to work out a good business plan for restarting a custom sewing business, rather then the willy nilly approach I took last time. I have been trying to work on it, and have made infinitesimal amounts of progress, but then I get scared, and I stop trying.

Does anyone have any links to resources for small businesses or sewing business? I need help figuring out what exactly I'm supposed to figure out, and I don't seem to know what I'm looking for because my web searches are never very helpful.

I bought a new frou frou bathroom cleaner recently, and have just used it for the first time. Now both bathrooms smell strongly of Cucumber. I forsee complaints when Walker gets home. On the other hand, I have read that ants don't like cucumber, so maybe the smell will keep them away next ant season.
I finally got my quilt pictures to upload. If you wish to see them, they are here. Walker swapped the ethernet card, or something and now *poof* the internet works right again. Also the computer hasn't turned itself off since we switched motherboards, so my computer problems may be fixed.
I've probably just cursed myself. The computer is reading this as I type.
