Vacation/Scouting Trip

So far, so good. There's a lot to do, in a short amount of time. Even with all the hustle and bustle, including my last assignment & a lot of walking, I'm having a good time. It's also so nice to walk around with just an extra sweater, and no coat. That I like so far....more

Friday the 13th

is a good luck day for me. There may not be anything spectacular that happens, but nothing horrible does either. If you think bad things are going to happen they probably will. Kai, my black cat pictured below, is my good luck charm, there's nothing bad or evil about her. To me those black cat supersitions are garbage. If a black cat crosses your path, just say hi and move on. If one walks under a ladder, well it walked under a ladder....more

Vacation

plans are on the go. About 3 weeks in British Columbia and I can't wait. So it's triple time on getting this course finished or at least up until the final project, which is not due until April 24th. I really do not want to do any school work on vacation, but who knows. Why didn't I wait until the end of April, you may ask? Well I don't want to travel when it's getting too warm, I detest the heat. I don't want to travel when the place will be even busier with tourists. Getting accommodations that I like and that are close to town, will be harder and more expensive....more

Saturday Edition

Loving Saturday because I spent Thursday and Friday in migraine hell. If it didn't clear up today it would have been a trip to the hospital. I have tons of work to catch up on but I'm so glad that my migraine is gone for the most part. Just a lingering, of throbbing and dull pain. So I won't be over doing it today. I'm just thankful that I can function today....more

Friday Wrap-Up, February 6th, 2015

It's been a decent week. Nothing too dramatic. I did get to see someone at the Hospice where mom died and I'll definitely be utilizing their services. Group work after I get back from BC, and wellness therapies as soon as possible. Those include complementary massage therapy, Reiki, and reflexology, etc, for up to two years. The insomnia is back in full force and I need the help in getting my body back in balance....more

Friday Wrap-Up

It's been an interesting and fast week for me. I'm so glad that it's Friday, although I still have a lot to do. I'm still working on not doing work/school of any kind, one day a week. It's hard, but necessary. Do any of you find not working on something & taking a break, hard as well?...more

Friday Wrap-Up

Today has been a good day so far. The week didn't start out that great (getting blocked my life, no matter what I did), but keeping optimistic has helped. I had a short chat with a small business association today and came away a little more informed then I was walking in. I'm going back on Monday for an informal workshop to find out more information, brainstorm, etc. It's exciting and I love moving one step closer to "officially" starting my business. Anyway  I have school work, and a business plan to continue working on. Have a great weekend!...more

Book Review: #GIRLBOSS

Some of you may know that I would love to start my own business. Well I'm in the process of doing just that. Just a little blip of redoing one of my courses and finishing my program. In the meantime I'm revving up the business plan, so I'm already in business by the time April 21st rolls around. Now don't get me wrong if Google comes calling or an amazing startup catches my eye, I'm there. I'm all about multiple sources of income. Not because of greed but because of job security in this precarious job market....more

Broken Heart: #2

The week after next, January 19th, will be 3 months since mom died and I think I'm only feeling it now. I'm incredibly sad. I'm tired. I'm empty and I feel as though I have nothing to give, although it seems as though I still am giving. Going through the motions without feeling much of anything but sadness. This is the first week where I'm actually allowing myself to do nothing, since she died and I refuse to feel bad for this little bit of selfishness. Next week, online classes start again, along with getting my business plan started, so I'm reveling in doing nothing....more
