All Nighters Yet Again

I'm too old to be forcing myself to stay up all hours of the night to work, but that is exactly what I am doing at this point. Well, on Fridays, Saturdays and the nights of the school holidays. The amount of expenses lately along with the never ending pile up of neglected house work would be finding me seeking more hours in the day.

Recently a vast number of expenses both expected and unexpected have taken their toll on my household. The car for one. It had to have plugs, wires, an idle valve and yet another alternator as a result of the plug and wires not being replaced sooner. This expense could have been avoided had I been told in no uncertain terms they were so bad they were what caused both the alternator and the battery to have to be replaced the last time around.

The expenses causing slight problems is not lost on me.  The fact that school pictures came out for the first of two times this year is not lost on me. $16 for the smallest pack they have. That's $32 a year, and it's working its way into my budget slowly. Funny fact about that. The first of the year the school sent out a schedule so the fact pictures were coming should not have been a surprise. I've got to start writing this stuff down and organizing it better.

In the meantime I'm on a rampage to get the dust out of my house. Recent temperature changes have led to being inside even more and illness is entering my home. I'll be cleaning and sanitizing every possible surface, I may even sanitize my animals. The cold temps remind me it is time for mouse traps since a small, adore though disease carrying mouse has found itself comfortable enough to come out into the open to explore during the day.

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Starting Over. Again.

Life never goes the way we plan and that's okay. We just had a major change that I tried and tried to plan for only to have my plans fall apart every. single. time. It was when I stopped with the obsessive planning and pulling my hair out that it all came together. We're doing pretty good while we make the adjustment to home. Here's hoping that we'll be completely back on track soon.

Until next time, never listen to the voice that says you can't. Find the voice that says Fuck it I'm doing it.

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.
