Busy

on November 13, 2009 - 7:02pm

I love the new site! Lots to do! today my friend and I got our Arts and Crafts sale set up at The Warren in North Minneapolis. We have lots of stuff made by our hound owners and families and sell it to raise money for greyhound rescue. I managed to get quite a few dog coats made and they look lovely and hopefully we will sell lots of stuff. With the economy though Im afraid people are just tightening belts. Me, Ive started a part time job at an urgent care clinic which I work a couple nights a week and hopefully a couple weekends a month. Its pretty easy, receptionist, check people in. good money for part time, itll help a bit. Still struggling, still behind on my morgage, barely able to make all my monthly bills, Im hoping it wont be as painful this winter as last but who knows, still in my little house and doing as much volunteer stuff as I can. still have my job at aetna which is a godsend really. No boyfriend,its been 3 4 years now and Im thinking I should think about looking maybe, oh well, someone ll turn up, maybe! ok, gotta make another batch of haystacks for the sale tomorrow!

catchup

on June 14, 2009 - 6:25pm

Havent journaled for a bit so thought Id play catchup. Im still in my little house, borrowed 1/2 my 401K money and got a bit caught up. not entirely but enough to appease the bank gods. As long as I can keep up my summer partime garden job I should be able to get caught up by winter. I will have to get a partime job this winter, no doubt about that but I am less scared than before. As I believe, things manage to work out somehow. The 150 tulips bloomed beautifully at my Patio Town store, Ive got way too many tomato plants in my garden again, Hope to go camping a couple weekends with the dog, still doing volunteer work, Pet therapy with Angie, neighborhood organization, Greyhound rescue. I have also been painting more pictures and hope to have a show this fall. Nothing big, Just something to show myself that I am moving forward. Life is going on.

Well its spring

on May 3, 2009 - 8:03pm

I havent posted a Journal in a while so I thought I would. When I always say 'things manage to work out for the best in the end' its pretty much true. I got thru a very rough winter. Im still in my little house. Its still horribly tight but Im managing. My summer garden job has started thou my hours are less, its still extra money, and I still have my good full time Job at Aetna. Thank god every day for that. Still volunteering on the neighborhood council, with my dog Angie at Gillette childrens hosp and Catholic Eldercare, That is as always the most rewarding thing I do. its almost become so spiritual for me. Ive started on my tomato obsession, only kind of embraced it at least until they start producing! Ive given my Dahlias away, It was hard but they just take so much water and work, Im growing more veg and plan on canning/freezing this fall. my one wish for this year, not sure how it could come true but IM going to try and get myself to the Rose parade in Pasadena CA January 1 2010. I ought to be able to do that. Maybe a bit of camping with the dog too.

filled with joy

on February 17, 2009 - 8:11pm

I got to work 12 hours today. I will get 15 hours overtime this week. Im tired but thrilled because there may actually be a light at the end of this long dark tunnel. As long as I can keep up the hours. The joyous thing was that I got off work at 8, walked outside the office and it was snowing. No, thats not accurate. giant quarter sized fluffballs of H2O were falling gently from the night sky. And I was just filled with joy.
