Hello Again

I know it has been quite awhile since my last post. Obviously, I’ve been busy. I think my Avon career is over. My mom took over and is doing well with it. (If you are interested, please visit http://www.youravon.com/lhorwath to place an order)

Life after Avon has been interesting. Bug made the travel softball team. This means instead of $150 at the park district, we pay $650 for some special team. I’m super happy she made the team… Maybe this will lead to a college scholarship.

I still have a job I hate. The seven minute drive to work seems to be getting longer and longer. The complete lack of intelligence with some people I work with is ridiculous.

But I have started my own shop on Etsy. (www.etsy.com/shop/ImagineThatCrafting) Being creative runs through my blood. My mom and dad enjoy wood working and other craftsy stuff while my Grandma is a wizard with ceramics. I love to crochet. Together we make up the team “ImagineThat.” Check us out on Facebook too! http://www.facebook.com/ImagineThatCrafting

I am sure more things have happened but it is late and after a long day of rethinking my life choices, I’m exhausted. Check you on the flip side.


A Little About the Avon Lady

Why do I find it so difficult to talk about myself?  I literally sat here and stared at my computer screen for five minutes.  The following sentence is what I came up with:

My name is Tara Schumacher and I am an Avon Independent Sales Representative. 

But that’s not all I am.  Truth is, I am 28 years old and am just starting to figure out this thing they call “Life.”  I have a government job that I dislike, but it pays the bills.  I have a great boyfriend of eight years and we live with his ten year old daughter, our dog, Durt and our cat, Guinness.  I live in a small house with no driveway and no garage.  I suppose all these things are “character building.” 

If you are part of my circle of friends and familiy, please leave a comment if you know who I am.  Because it is becoming increasingly more difficult to differentiate between who I am, who I want to be, and who others want me to be.
