A Big Step Forward

Monday, November 01, 2010

I decided to fire the attorney I had in Alabama because he has done NOTHING in the past six months for me except screw up the first three drafts of the divorce papers. I have found a lawyer up here in Michigan who will be able to have my divorce finalized within three months. I got the initial paperwork today and will meet with her tomorrow. I am comfortable with my decision and determined to see it through. I will finally be able to put the past behind me and walk forward into the future that I create.

I Hope This Lasts

Sunday, October 31, 2010

My attitude seems to be really good lately. I'm feeling a little more confident in myself. I really hope that it is not completely tied to this temporary job that I have. It's scheduled to end in a couple weeks. I don't want to fall back into my depressed mood again. I really don't like the "one step forward, eight steps back" routine.

But, I am more confident in my abilities. I'm more confident in the choices I've made. I am more involved in my church and have made new friends. I hope these things will help me in my life.

I Took a Night Off

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I was tired last night and my back was bugging me a little bit. So, I decided to get my pajamas on and wash up about 7 pm. By 8, I was laying on the couch watching tv. I think I fell asleep by 9:30 and slept through until about 5. It must have been what the doctor ordered. I woke up refreshed and ready to go. It's 8:10 and I've cleaned the kitchen, laundry room and bathroom. The garbage is out and the bottle returns are already in the van. Now to get my walk and shower, then off to run my errands. Why can't every day start off so well?

    I fell behind and needed to catch up on your blogs. I love the great positive attitude. I hope that you can reapply for food stamps if something doesn't come soon. You might also try the Food Bank in your area. emoticon You are doing great!

Wishing I Was Younger

Friday, October 29, 2010

I always wish that I was still a little kid this time of year. Or, at least, I wish my children were still little. I always enjoyed Halloween.

    Yes, it was fun to trick or treat when I was a kid. There were kids in every house on the block. There just seem to be less kids around these days - at least in our neighborhood.

The Powers That Be

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The supervisors at my temporary job were in frantic meetings today. They still debating on what and how the temporary workers should help them in their hour of need. The bad thing about the situation is they are blaming everyone but themselves. The good thing is that, either way, I figure they have about two weeks worth of money to finance us.

The bad thing about the good thing is that I will not have money coming in and the DHS has ended my food stamp allowance. I am surprisingly calm about the job situation. I will find something again somehow. I am determined to make this work.

    I'm going through a hard financial time right now, too. Been looking for a job, temporary or otherwise, for months to no avail. I totally understand how you feel. Praying for you!

    I hope it all works out for you. I'm sorry about the food stamp situation. People need to eat.
