Plans - Maybe


I used to make plans and more often than not something went wrong with them. Usually that something was someone popping up and not leaving so I could go. Other times it would storm or something would tear up so I never made it to my destination. I finally gave up and stopped making plans all together. I even stopped making plans for working because despite asking people numerous times to give advanced notice before coming out there were always pop up visitors when I was the busiest.

Now that the constant interruptions are gone I can work. That is if I can keep work lined up and deadlines met. I have to make some repairs so that this place lasts a bit longer because the day I get to replace it appears to be slipping further away. I spent some times making plans for repairs; the order they get done in depends on the cost and the time involved.

There are a lot of repairs and cosmetic issues that require attention. Hopefully they will be taken care of a little at a time. I have a few things to work with so I’ll be hunting down more materials. I need some more tools though and that is going to be an initial expense. I need a saw, nails, etc……materials, paint, siding and tile.

My shed even needs repairs, and I need a new shed. I wanted some things for my yard but I have never gotten them done. I have to save some money while paying the bills and taking care of little bit. This is going to be fun. I’d love to plan sitting down to do my taxes but that is going to take some time since I have yet to see a 1099. I’m hoping to get a refund to take care of some things. I have to file injured spouse to get my money from it and sadly that’s the only plan that is solid at this point.

Remembering

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
