So, no car.
The first place will not finance me without a co-signer, and the second place had higher down-payments than they advertise online. To make up the difference in down-payment would have doubled the amount of the weekly payment and is out of my range.
Still no job either. My unemployment runs out at the end of the year, but I think I can file an extension. In the meantime, I am going to try and advertise for childcare. My sister said it would be ok...I didn't want to just assume that it would be and invade her house with more people. She has even offered to pay for the advertisement in the newspaper, and the house is already baby-proofed, even though my nephew is 5, the baby proofing is something they just never changed.
I was thinking of offering services for young babies. I see many advertisements for daycare services, but your child has to be a little older, so I think offering daycare for very young babies might be a good niche...plus tiny babies are awesome, lol!
I have also spent the last couple of days setting up a personal blog online and trying to put Google Adsense on there to make money by letting them place ads on my page. I only have a few blogs up so far, but everyone is welcome to check it out.
I figured since I spend so much time up on my soapbox anyways...I may as well share some of it with the rest of the internet, lol!
My nutrition is getting better, I dropped (re-dropped) 3 pounds in the last week and am starting to feel a bit better.
I got the ingredients for sweet potato and tomatillo soup that I made yesterday and it turned out even better than I had hoped for.
I posted it here on SP...
I also used my sister's car Saturday to go out and visit with my boys. It was my son's 20th birthday and we went out for lunch at Epic Deli and then went over to visit with my aunt. She is 72 and will probably live to be 172, lol! Got caught up with the family gossip and plans for our Christmas gathering....it has been so long since I have been home, I don't know all of the kids in the family...the a few of my cousins are grandparents now too and I wasn't sure who had who and who would be coming for the holiday.
We go a bit of snow yesterday too, which makes me both really excited, because hey...its SNOW! And really apprehensive because no car. Oh well, it is what it is and it will be resolved when it's time.
