Long Time No See...

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

It's been almost a year since my last post on this site. So much has happened I don't know where to start.

My unemployment ran out in April. STILL haven't been able to get hired for a full time job. Fortunately I've found part-time work at the local university. It's not much, but it pays the utilities and buys a little food. At best the income is $600 per month.

Ex-husband / father-of-my-children passed away mid-Summer. Hard to believe after all the abuse he heaped on me that I would feel saddened at his passing. Son and daughter took it hard. Different ways though. Son sad; daughter angry.

Daughter is moving further South hopefully to a better life.

Fiance fell from a ladder the beginning of August while helping a friend cut down a tree. Was life-flighted to nearby hospital. Died in transit, but they brought him back to life. Four broken ribs (on the side by his spine) among other injuries - the ribs still haven't healed. Harder to heal when you're over 60.

Found out a few weeks ago that I have lost 50% of my hearing. The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation is going to help pay for hearing aids needed for both ears. The good thing about that is that I understand now that I have been "missing" hearing parts of conversations. Now that I'm aware of "missing" perhaps there won't be as many misunderstandings in my life. Communication is difficult enough.

Have sold a few Hex Signs and just yesterday a stuffed animal. The stuffed animal was the first sale on my second Etsy shop. Tole You So and Petunia Magpie aren't exactly profitable, but gave me enough to buy a domain. Hopefully the domain will help me earn an income in years to come. It's still under development. The fiance says "don't quit your day job". He's such a joker.

This lifestyle change has taken a back seat to life in general. Today I try to begin again.

Blessings to all who read this.
