Ahh, those HUGE expenses that come right before the holidays.

At this very moment, my hubby’s car is being towed away. The key won’t turn in the ignition. We have spent the past weekend following everyone’s advice..rocking the car, turning the wheel, greasing the ignition, unplugging the battery...but the car refuses to give in. So, it’s $50 just to tow it up the road, then God knows how much to fix it. The receptionist at the dealership quoted $500 and the mechanic at the same place quoted about $300. The way things are going, I am concerned, to say the least.

Almost Turkey Day, and I have no bird.

My life, I have decided, is weird. I went to Failmart (walmart) today and got everything we needed for Thanksgiving dinner. I spent 200 dollars!! $200!!! Hubby thought I was kidding when I told him! (Corn pudding, green bean casserole, desserts, stuffing, snacks for my pretty serving stands, dog food...) It all adds up. But, heh heh, I didn’t get the turkey! My employer is giving us turkeys, so I’m holding out hope it’s big enough for hubby’s amazing dressing.

Also, my book sales have dropped 50%. Is it me? Do I smell funny? Because I don’t FEEL like I smell funny. ::sniffs self:: I was at a whopping two book sales a day, and I’m down to just over one a day. Huh.

Well, my BFF is in Jordan, God bless her. I pray her family stays safe. Also, I’m half way through my Pavoratti book and I’m depressed. I want it to last longer, but I can’t stop reading it. I’ve decided to only read it at work, on breaks. There! That should make it last. Now what shall I read on my Ipad?? Any suggestions??

Time flies, things change.

Wow, I have been so busy! This summer I needed to go back to work. I will admit that after 11 years of being a stay-at-home mom who also homeschools, this was scary and stressful at times. I knew I only wanted to apply at one place, the rest would be due to location, available hours etc. Well, I walked in (nervously, it’s been a while...) and they hired me on the spot! I have been working there for a few months and I just love it. The staff is great, the hours rotate so I’m not bored with one shift, I’m learning a lot and dang...the food is amazing. It’s one of those places all the locals know and we constantly hear things like “This is the best meal I’ve had in years!” or “I used to come here as a kid and had to bring my own kids when we passed through town!” It’s wonderful. I am truly thankful.

Also, I want to write again, but have not been able to find the time with all this life-change. I also have trouble sleeping (always have) and my sleep specialist (yes, a specialist) has told me to stay up a lot later. Guess who is back to writing? See you tonight, computer!!
