join us for a glimpse, if you'd like:
and, for the good news... glenn just today found out that he got a HUGE promotion! for those of you who don't know, glenn is currently a 7th grade science teacher. he just got moved up into an administrative position. starting thursday, he will be the new athletic director/ vice principle. obviously, this is a huge deal for our family. among other things, it means a significant pay raise.
glenn and i have been discussing this at length for a while. the move from teacher to administrator is a big one. glenn has worked really hard during his time at his school and it is awesome that this is being recognized. i am so very proud of him! while he is sad to be leaving the classroom and his students, he is very excited to move on to something new and challenging. as my grandmother (a long-time teacher) said when i told her about this, "they always take the good teachers and make them administrators."
one big impact this will have on my business is that it will free me up a bit. right now, we depend pretty heavily on my etsy income to pay for bills and groceries. now, with his increased income, i can move away from doing custom/ made to order items and focus on the one-of-a-kind pieces that i really want to be doing. i am thrilled. it also means that i will be able to invest the money i make from my business back into my business. specifically, it means that i may be able to build myself a new studio... with ventilation and a floor and real wiring... but i get ahead of myself...
yay for glenn!
