Still Thinking and Trying

Friday, July 29, 2011

I'm still thinking of ways to get more money coming in. I had a chance to put in a couple job applications in, but not nearly as many as I would have liked to. I spent the day yesterday trying to catch up on chores and errands that I had planned to do the day before (before I got called into work). I've got a couple ideas, but have not had the time to implement most of them.

One thing I want to do is to weed through the stuff I have in the condo. This allows me to throw away or give away the things I won't ever use again. I can inventory the things that I think I may be able to sell. I sent back a bunch of Avon products that I've had sitting around for awhile. At least this way I got a credit for the items.

Doing this has been therapeutic. It's helping me dust out the cobwebs in my head and in the condo. And, if by chance I have to move, there will be less things that I have to move or deal with when the time comes. It's not something I want to do. I have no clue on where I'd go. But, I'm trying to be realistic and look at all my possibilities.

There is an obvious solution if someone else would be realistic. (It's hard to go into details.) But, the solution doesn't seem to want to happen any time soon. If only I had a magic want.

Cleaning our space seems to be good for the soul. I wish you well as you go through this emotionally difficult time. emoticon

    I can certainly relate to how you feel about not knowing where you would live....

Do they deliver flyers on Sundays where you live? I know from talking to the people who run the storage unit, they have that job and they are also agents for UHaul and they also deliver the weekly newspapers.... they appear to have at least 3 sources of income. That seems to be the way of the future.... multiple mini jobs.... I probably told you already that I also sold Avon for several years.

You have been so patient and persistent, I am sure God has good plans for you.
God Bless..

Change of Plans Day

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I was told yesterday that I didn't have to go into work today. So, I made my long to do list of things I need to do. I just got a phone call from my boss asking me to come in. The best laid plans of mice and men... I will just have to fit my to-do list into my next couple of days somehow.

    I had a similarly topsy-turvy day. But that's how we show how flexible we are, right?

The Best Of Intentions....

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I had full intention of starting to write in my journal again last night. I used to be in the habit of writing in in almost every day. But, by the time I got home from work, went on my walk, and started looking at my mail and budget, the night got away from me. There sure are a lot of things I feel I need to write about. It always makes me feel a little better or at least lets me sort out my feelings and start making plans for a new and improved me. So, this morning, I penciled in a time when I will sit down and write.

One thing I need to write about is the emergency room episode with my mother. It sure got me thinking of everyone's mortality and what I really want to do with my life while I have age and health to my advantage. Another topic is definitely my financial situation. I can't stay where I am on the money I have coming in. Plans have got to be made and followed up on. So much to think about and so little time! I need to still work on streamlining my life.

    I love journaling but never make time for it. I have definately got to pencil some time in for myself. It is such a great stress reliever.

    I was thinking the same thing, you are always saying you are scheduling - glad to hear you scheduled in journal writing.... I need to do the same...

As for the situation with your mom making you reflect and make decisions in your life, I think we all need a wake-up call.... Like I went in for my bloodwork yesterday and a few minutes ago (~8pm) I got a call from the dr office saying they want to see me tomorrow....some quick!!
